    Chas, I really enjoyed your video on the turtles! So very cute. A suggestion if I might: when trying to remove those pesky stickers, grab your hair dryer, set it on low and warm the sticker for a few seconds. then peel it off. might have to repeat, but it works on lots of items!

    Keep crafting!!
