  1. Love that banner. A thought on the tassels….knot the end of the cord and put a bit of glue on it and roll it in the middle-same time as the pick. As you remove the pick,give the tassel a little squeeze around the cord.
    Your drink is beautiful. Enjoy.

  2. Really fun stuff! Love your tassels & that banner is terrific. Thanks for the great ideas.

  3. Your contribution is very valuable, and I’m sure it will help many others besides me. Hopefully you will continue to write and share more great articles in the future.
