  1. Thanks for hosting the HST festival Megan - I have loved all of the projects and it has been very inspiring!

  2. Thanks for the festival. This was my first time using HSTs. Not sure why I hadn't before but thanks for the motivation to finally get to it! Can't wait to see what everyone came up with.

  3. Hmmm, can you believe I haven't used any HSTs in a finished project in the last 6 months? I will join in if I can finish up a project before 4/22--fun entries so far!

  4. Thanks for hosting this Megan and giving me inspiration to use up my swoon HST.
