Thank you so much for answer my (our!) questions! Greatly appreciated, and I will check out that DVD for sure! Did you buy all of her videos like as a box set or each one individually or did you just pick and choose a few that were recommended to you? BTW - I love your signature. It's one of my favorite scriptures!

Hi cserwa,

Your welcome!

I bought Sharon's first three videos. She has recently completed two more (Design Gallery and Boxes and Bows) which I plan on ordering shortly.

They are not sold as a boxed set that I know of. They are definitely worth every penny. icon_smile.gif

I also just purchased Sharon's DVD's (Buttercream, Fondant & Stacking). Her DVD's are fantastic - worth every penny! I will be ordering her lastest - Bows & Boxes.

I heard about the Viva method before and have tried it and it WORKS! It was amazing - wish I would have knows about it a few years ago - all of the time and frustration I could have saved myself.
