I liked it!
I just purchased and watched Melinda Barta's Video. I was a bit taken by surprise by the comments i read. I read the reviews on the Standard Definition version before I downloaded the video. First of all, those were not reviews I read, just complaints on their preference for learning. I think they missed the point. It was suppose to be about the contents of the video. I was impressed. Melinda was very thorough with her review and demonstrations for the brand new beads. I wished some projects were included...but all and all it's worth every penny. It helps get your creative juices running. Review by Jazzy Jasmine (Posted on 3/28/2015)
