To me the word Festooned means to be totally covered with a design. The dictionary says I means totally covered with flowers, that’s close enough considering I have been using it for a few months to describe my uber stenciled … Continue reading

Well It was really had to tear myself away from my Indian Inlay stencil from Cutting Edge Stencils but I couldn’t wait to try my free bird stencil. When I ordered my initial Stencil they made a note I would be receiving a free stencil. I didn’t get it, but… they send it right out too me. I opened my package and I had the cutest bird stencil. When I went to throw out the envelope I saw there were actually 4 bird stencils. Yeah four birds! I later found out that instead of the one $4.95 stencil which is the normal gift with purchase. They sent me the complete bird $14.95 bird set. Thank You!
