Remember how much fun it was to shop for school supplies? Didn't you love picking out just the right notebook, eraser, and scissors, then sharpening your pencils, and organizing everything in a little cigar box that would fit underneath your desk? Well, that's how I feel when I get new craft supplies. And when I discover something I've never seen before, it's even more exciting. So that's why I've gone totally SNAP HAPPY over these cool snaps from Snap Source:
I found these when I wrote my first book, and at the time, connected with the owner of the company, Jeanine Twig. She was so helpful and passionate about her products, and when you try them out you'll see why. They are SUPER EASY to set in place, and come in a zillion sizes, styles and colors.
