    How to Finish Loom Bracelet with Adjustable Leather Ends - Jewel Loom School with Jewels

    Learn another way to make an adjustable loomed bracelet with leather ends. Jewels makes this look so easy! She uses supplies in the Sedona Spring Desert Hatband kit to loom the bracelet & to make the leather ends…you only need to provide the glue, loom, & Wildfire.

    If you are wanting to use this type of ends for a different bracelet, trim a piece of strong leather to the width of the bracelet. Make sure you have the length of the leather a little longer than you need, to make sure you can even it out, when gluing...then you can trim off the excess ends of the leather.

    Supplies Used:

    boy oh boy Joan and I can get in a lot of trouble we just talk and talk and talk and then all of a sudden it's you
    know screaming at a show time so here we are welcome welcome so happy to
    see everyone I'm Juliana Avalar everyone calls me Jules I'm the inventor of the
    original jewel loom bead Loom and the baby Loom and a lot of really beautiful wood looms
    that are made out of a sustainable Baltic Birch um and so they're all very very very
    delicious so today is Thursday it kind of feels weird like
    anytime there's a holiday in the middle of the week it just kind of throws my whole entire
    everything off I don't know about you but I don't even know what day it really
    feels like maybe it feels like a Monday I don't really know but it is Thursday and it's jewel loom School live and I'm
    so appreciative I see Cynthia and Jeanette and Maria and
    um of course Joan is with us and Sherry just came in I'm gonna get my little
    scrolly thing out of the way and Lisa hello Lisa Lisa Lisa so it is a
    beautiful day here finally on the west coast it's kind of been um overcast I think we're just living in
    a forever June Gloom state but uh but July is we're you know I'm
    hopeful that that there'll be more sun and uh and we'll get a little bit more
    a little more daylight so uh with that said so yeah so we're um we are playing around with the Sedona
    kit you know I started the Sedona kit gosh has it been like a
    I'm I'm embarrassed to say this but it's probably been a month so we did the
    Sedona spring hat band kit as a course
    for the creative Soul Workshop and um and that was huge and everybody loved
    that and it's super pretty and then I asked Trisha to make some earrings from
    the pattern and so I know Lisa was um emailing me today and so we were
    going back and forth but the cool thing is that yeah we will show like what you
    want to do if you want to create a bracelet instead of a hat band and then basically like for the earrings and Joan
    can probably is already posting that somewhere you know you could just take like a little suction each section is
    like I'd say about an inch and so for the earrings I believe Trisha just did
    like one one little section and if I'm not mistaken it was like the first section
    and so those earrings are just so stinking cute so there's really a lot of
    different things that you could do if you're not into hat bands you could take the pattern you could take the kit and you can make other things such as
    a bracelet earrings or what have you you could even do like a really cool pendant
    I mean especially with these colors for um the summer time that would just look
    so beautiful the color palette is very very um it's like if you're driving through
    the desert or you're hiking in the back of the mountains and you see that
    succulent and it's got that really beautiful corally pink flower that just came out of it out of
    nowhere and you're like oh my gosh I like so beautiful that is really so much
    of this pattern right here and that's why we call it the Sedona spring
    hat band and so this was designed by Brandy Fletcher Brandy and I have known
    each other since we were little boo-boos um 13 years old or so from junior high
    school and she's actually a total rock star like for real she she sings
    and she also does silver small thing and silver smelting silver smith thing right
    is a silver I'm a silver smith she's a silversmith is it called silversmithing is that such a thing Joe is that proper
    I don't know that's a that's an awning question right hahaha but um
    yeah so so she's been doing that and um yeah I really I really love it thank you
    Zach I really I sat here today and actually um finished it off because when we left
    at the last segment I had only been able to do where am I at the top pattern here
    just this little piece and so today I actually um sat here and and finished it up and
    so I have a six inch wrist um this section is just about six inches
    and what I did with the solid blue up here I'm gonna do again at the bottom and that's how I'm going to adhere the
    faux leather and so in your kit by the way there's only four Sedona spring kits left so there's one
    two three one two three four five six
    is it six tubes I think of beads and then you get the I got faux leather this
    time just to kind of like you know um balance it out I don't know this is
    suede um and then so there's you know a piece of the suede in there and then you've got a um a slider bead for the closure
    and so by all means you could choose to use a slide connector or maybe you sew
    on a button you know maybe a technique that that you would prefer but you do
    get actually these two guys used to be together so it's like a four by four or three by four piece of faux leather and
    it's really nice and it works super well um so yeah so that's my story for this
    Thursday when you do buy the kit um like I said there's only four kits left you
    will get the downloadable PDF so that you'll have the pattern it's
    going to tell you what to do it's awesome what I do is I get an envelope and this was a Kelly Dell idea where she prints
    it out and then she just you know brings the piece of paper down with her as she's following the pattern so I thought
    that was really smart because if you try to do this without that as like no fun
    Also let's just see I'm going to bring this in I'm wearing my bracelet I told you I was so excited look at how
    beautiful so this is with the fire polish assortment this is the beaded wrap
    bracelet that I finished off I do apologize for that um
    a little bit of a sound sound issue not an echo not a screeching just kind of like a lot of jewel
    but anyway so cool and I'm loving the button it all worked out really well together and it's just delicious I love
    the thinness of it and because you know then it's like really nice and lightweight so I did that on the large
    wisdom Warrior which by the way um Lisa had asked me earlier she was
    saying how she has the jewel loom and the silver silk loom um if you don't have the large
    wisdom Warrior um you can make pieces on the jewel loom
    for a hat band and then you would just have to sew the ends together okay so
    that is an option if you don't have the large wisdom Warrior um or maybe you're saving up for it and
    you want to make a hat band you could make the pieces on the original jewel loom and again you would just sew sew
    the ends together that's what we did in my book um when I did the chokers because
    the wisdom Warrior had not been birthed yet so back in the day uh that's that's
    actually what we did so all right um oh another quickie here I know this may be like well that's weird but it's
    actually not so this is that stuff right that you put
    into your your cabinets and I know some people
    ask often like well how do you keep your jewel loom from wiggling and this was
    one of the ideas it you know to put it on um the oh my gosh
    what is it called the um cabinet shelf cabinet sticky
    non-stuff what is it called I can't remember Jones Gonna Save My Day
    right here so that is what shelf liner shelf liner so with the starter kits
    with the jewel loom starter kits um my mom cut a piece of this and so
    we're going to put it into the starter kit so if you buy a starter kit this is going to go into it and then you just
    put your loom on top of it and it helps it to not have a wiggle butt
    it's plastic it weighs like nothing it's it's a wiggle right so you you can put
    it on a non-skid Surface such as and it does help
    so just a little something we're going to throw in with the starter kits um and you know maybe you'll just think
    that's really cool [Laughter] but either way we like it and so shelf
    lining okay all the words Karen says liner grippers shelf liner awesome
    and Lisa says she just ordered sewing down to three kids thank you Lisa
    yeah this was a really popular kit and um and so uh oh oh that's huge oh you
    scared me I was like I turned off all of my things that should not be happening all right so we're gonna go ahead and
    get started and yeah you could go ahead and do that Joan you could you could probably
    um yep there you go awesome so this is let's see here
    gonna let that just kind of get its grounding there
    and yeah so I've just got the the jewel loom on
    you know on this and you can see how it doesn't really want to move
    so I'm looking at my screen and it looks like it's going a little slow is it Joan
    it is okay huh
    let's see if it just needs to set for a second here so um I'm just going to back
    out and again I'm just going to be doing the blue rose and if the computer or if the the phone
    continues to go slow then I'll just um I'll just go to the laptop and we'll
    we'll bring it down to the surface okay so let's just see what happens so
    I'm going to come under the jewel loom and just for reference the jewel loom is in front of my body
    and this end right here is closest to my body and this is my right hand
    and this is my left hand over here and what I'm going to do is I'm going to
    take the needle and I'm going to come under
    the warps and grab it with my right hand and then I'm going to just pick up some
    of these gorgeous Cornflower seed beads this color can be anything you want
    because you're not going to see it when it's all done and I'm also just going to get some light on the situation
    there we go it's always nice when when we can see so
    I'm just going to pick up a bunch of um of the blue beads to be exactly let's
    see how many am I picking up one two no I'm going to count on the pattern because like I can really see that okay
    one two three four five six seven eight nine ten eleven twelve thirteen
    so so yeah like if you have leftover beads
    you could use those for the ends
    okay five business six seven eight
    whoops nine ten what did I say 13.
    oh goodness let's see there's three six
    nine ten eleven twelve I think I said 13 right okay so I'm gonna pick those up
    and then we're just going to pop them in between the warps
    you can almost hear them just popping in
    and by the way if you're wondering how I got to this point again this is like part two of what we started a few weeks
    ago and so the warping is discussed as is um you know following the pattern
    okay so there's the first one foreign
    and I'm working on the jewel loom um bead board by the way perfect
    okay so that was 13.
    and we're just doing I think it's five rows of these guys
    thank you I love when they just pop up and in between the warps I wanna
    bring that up a little and so it's really careful too that when you are going back through the beads that you
    are on top of the warp so you should be able to see that needle Glide
    through the beads okay
    oh that's wonderful news Donna Donna's um special
    well they're all special um her large wisdom Warrior is on the way
    to her I can't wait to see what you do she's so beautiful
    okay so that's five
    six seven eight
    nine ten eleven twelve thirteen
    and again just going back through trying to see if you can see a little
    bit of that shine from the needle you know you can if you're on top of the
    warps you definitely can see the silver part of the needle going through which is definitely what you want
    because if you don't go on top of the warps then uh the the beads will fall and then that is like no fun
    it does not make for a happy person
    yeah the the wood products ship out of Missouri so just depending on where you're at and what's going on
    um you never know she might arrive sooner
    but with the one day you know delay with um July 4th you know that could be the
    only reason why it might take actually until Monday okay so did I do five yeah
    I gotta do one more so right now for those of you tuning in wondering what is she doing I'm making
    um the bed so to speak of where I'm going to attach
    the piece of faux leather um you could certainly use real leather and we have but what comes in the kit is
    a piece of the faux leather and so I'm building the base
    right now so let's see that was six
    seven eight nine
    ten eleven whoopsie 12. 13.
    Okay so
    yep gliding right on top let me see if I could slowly bring that up
    thank you Kelly I don't think that's the first
    time you've had a bat in the living room because if my memory corrects me I remember being on a zoom one time and
    either the bat was in the living room or you talked about that is that correct
    oh my God so crazy so yeah so there's there's that end
    and so what I'm going to do now is I need to weave the um rest
    of the thread through and it's you're not going to be able to nor would
    you really want to or need to go through the entire bracelet you know if these
    were Edo's yeah but these are 11 0's and so it's pretty firm pretty secure but
    I'm just going to go ahead and weave back through a little bit here
    and so it doesn't hurt to yeah see I I've already been through
    these next couple of rows so it's a little tight
    thank you
    okay so now what I'm going to do is I want to tuck that in
    so I'm going to come up a row and then I'm going to come out the second between
    the second and the third bead
    okay and then I'm going to
    grab the warp
    and all I'm trying to do is like create a little knot and then I'm going to hide it
    so then I'll take my needle push that to the back
    and pull the knot to the back so that it can't be seen okay
    put that down and I'm just going to trim really quick and then I'll go back and clean that up
    later I just don't want to accidentally I'm going to have to do that afterwards
    too okay so let's make room here I have the messiest area so let me show you
    where we're trying to get to this is actually the um High Desert Hot band I stinking love
    this hat band so much there are still kits for this by the way and you can do the same thing so like for instance if
    you wanted to make a bracelet you could take the pattern
    um you know and this could be like on you know the front of your wrist right
    and so whoopsie sorry yep oh my gosh this and then the blue
    okay I'm gonna go a little crazy sorry but some of the
    squirrel squirrel sorry
    I just have to do this let's see like I could do a wrap bracelet with some of the Blues and then wear it with the High
    Desert hat band that modified the pattern from the kit and do
    um do a bracelet oh my heck okay sorry
    I can't help it it's like all these things are looking at me and I'm like oh my gosh all right so so this is the
    closure that I'm gonna do on the bracelet um in so pretty easy you're just making
    like a little sandwich with your this is actually leather that came in this kit um just a little little sandwich you
    know and then gluing it sometimes you know you might want to have like a clamp to
    um to hold it into place I've got a lean's fast grab glue and so I'm hopeful
    that it will grab so I want to put that to the side and
    let me just kind of get my desk oh my goodness I have so many things going on here I'm going to pull this
    over don't you just love the jewel loom look at how pretty that is I just love it
    gorgeous laser Robert is the best
    all right and then we'll pull our our liner out of the way and
    so when I take a piece off the loom you know that I I'm gonna adjust this just a
    little bit here I'd like to cup the piece in my hand
    and then I put my finger over that and then I'm just kind of holding it like a
    sandwich almost I just don't want it to ever like hit the surface and
    then you know the beads break or what have you usually there's a little bit more concern
    with that if you're using like you know big check beads or fire polish but these
    are seed beads but still better safe than sorry so I'm gonna hold it and then very carefully
    I'm going to that wasn't too bad
    I feel that and put the jewel in yep essential limp over and then
    um I am just gonna do a little knotting because
    actually I'm going to leave that one over there I'll go back and Sizzle that one with the um the burner
    so when you're doing this I can't say it enough just be careful that you
    don't pull too tight because the warps will shift and then your piece
    um will get all wonky so many times when people say you know oh my piece curled up or whatever it's
    usually because in this process um you pull too tight and or when you
    were beating your wefts when you were actually doing the weaving
    your consistency wasn't wasn't always the same
    that's what I have trouble doing what's why do you have trouble this part Becky
    okay which one was I dust with holy guacamole okay well you don't get to
    it's a lot of warps foreign
    yeah see I just felt something hopefully I didn't shift it
    I personally have more trouble um I usually have a little bit of an issue when I'm doing the earrings for
    some reason I think it's because they're short whereas the bracelets I don't tend to
    have the problem of the warps shifting
    so I have to be really careful regardless
    patience my dear patients
    so what was the most yummiest thing that you had for um Fourth of July did
    anybody cook anything or eat anything just that was like unbelievably yummy
    I went to an area of La that I had not ventured into before and it was really fun
    um and anytime I walk into a house and there's a chandelier and a piano in a
    rustic home I'm just like in love and that's what I
    got to enjoy on Tuesday and it's interesting there are so many
    little nuggets in the LA area that you know you just you don't ever I don't
    think you could ever really know all the little bits and pieces because some of these roads you know like I took
    Mulholland Drive um exit and then I was making lefts and rights and lefts and rights and then at
    one point it was like thank goodness I was paying attention because it was one of those like do you go straight because
    that road I'm not too sure of but but it went straight and uh and then I
    went up in behind into the mountains and it was so cool because it wasn't like a
    bunch of mansions it was like all this old architecture and all these homes every single one of
    them were different um a lot of them were ranchers and so they were single story and they just had
    a lot of really cool um you know architecture and just a
    whole different energy about them it wasn't like that fancy schmancy um
    you know Beverly Hills or anything like that Okay so
    um oh you made potato salad and coleslaw there was a lot of potato salad and
    coleslaw a hot dog with cheese in it oh barbecued spare ribs
    and nice yeah so where I was at they made
    um they made tri-tip which
    um is kind of like a well not kind of it is a California thing um Santa Maria style and there was
    chicken I don't know that there was I don't eat pork really well I guess I eat bacon
    first I feel like I'm cutting somebody's hair I do trim mine every once in a while I
    shouldn't say that out loud my stylist will not be happy
    so I'm just gonna put this again let me pull this in
    this is aleene's fast grab tacky glue
    oh that's so the okay so Marlon Brando had some watermelon
    and he really really liked it so that's a good thing because it's good
    for them of course I I um I took the seeds out but oops
    oh my gosh I'm like a dang fifth or five-year-old right now sorry
    foreign you may have another way that you do
    this okay I need some art therapy right now so
    just just bear with me okay so I'm gonna bring in
    um the piece of leather and I'm gonna put it over
    okay and then what I want to do is I'm going to fold it but I've got to trim it because remember I'm going to need space
    to get that suede that suede through here so I could do this now
    but I don't want to accidentally glue it so I'm not going to so I'm just kind of eyeballing to see
    so I'm just making like a little sandwich
    and I'm going to come in here
    um I'm gonna let this just sit for a second um and do what it says it does fast dry
    fast grab
    live a little jewels fine Joan is telling me to live a little
    there you go thank you thank you for letting me live on the edge okay and then I'll just yeah that's even
    so we're good oh Joan Joan Knows Best
    so this is working really well and I think too because this is a faux
    um leather that you're not going to need a clamp where with the thicker leather the real leather you know it's it's
    um definitely definitely heavier and so I gotta stand
    up because I um I don't want to screw up this cut
    I'm probably going to cut it a little bit longer and then I'm going to go back
    and trim it
    so that I just let it sit for a second here okay so that's
    that's the one side and okay back in the hot seat
    and then let's see if we can't get these guys cut
    your fingers too usually I use a toothpick but for the
    life of me I can't seem to find one right now
    okay okay
    so now we're just going to do the same thing again
    it's gonna be really cool oh you know this might look good together too but I gotta look in the fire polish and see
    which fire polish would match which one would match this
    I don't think I'm gonna worry about day one two I think I'm being a little over zealous with that since I'm using the
    but this is fast dry so I don't know you might you might dry you might try to it
    excuse me well about Brando is outside scratching
    wanting to come in because two walks is not enough there
    needs to be a third
    you'll understand the concept of you know Mommy is still working
    yeah see this one a little bit a little bit faster
    oh I'm gonna go ahead and very carefully get this little guy
    my back side not sure
    some people use um the E6000 I I can't deal with the
    smell in the studio when I can't keep the windows open but I really have just
    found this is fine you know like I I feel like the fast grab is is really works very nicely
    that's good
    so I'm kind of just painting it on
    I mean if you want to get glue boogers all over your fingers
    just like the way how this rolls it's kind of like a rolling paint brush so
    it works out nice so I'm just going to bring this back in
    I'm gonna stand up so I can see
    okay and then again I'm going to just do the same thing leaving some space for that
    suede up here
    yes I'm definitely going to check in on this just to make sure and then I'm going to go back when we're off camera
    and and mark this so that I can cut a straight line I don't want to
    because then I'll be all milk a doodle I'm gonna trim this and
    then um because when I wove it in but I'm going to put a smidge and I don't think
    you're ever gonna see it in fact now I can't even find it so I'm not going to really worry about it
    there we go the glue boogers off my my hand
    yeah those are the backs put this through
    and then we're going to take these guys
    oh that might be a little loose but there we go
    yay so easy peasy pumpkin squeezy
    I love the look of this um this uh it's hard to tell let me pull let me pull it up a little
    that's a really pretty um complimenting faux faux leather so yeah here's your Sedona
    bracelet and it actually would probably look good with my
    let's see oh yeah it actually does look pretty huh
    now I really got a garden going yes you could Stitch It mm-hmm
    yeah in fact um Brandy I have a piece where Brandy actually um uh stitched it and with the faux
    leather you know you could definitely Stitch it and uh not struggle to get through it
    because it's very I mean look at this it's very yeah very flexible
    I mean I think it just depends on the glue you're using um Terry but to your point I think the
    stitching always looks really fun too you know so you could do that you could
    keep these a little bit wider and then you could do some hand sewing on the side that would be great that I love that
    look by the way but the fast the fast grab is grabbed
    and scrapped
    oh fun okay let me come up hold on let me get the light off of my
    off of my life my eyes yay
    yeah it's really yeah it's really fun
    I do like how that looks together actually um the it's funny because it looks like
    Coral but it's called pumpkin but it looks really pretty and look how it complements the Vintage button so the
    vintage buttons are in the shop too isn't it great
    very pretty yeah um yeah that's
    I like that a lot oh yeah hypo is really good too I like
    hypo for certain um and it doesn't smell you know the
    hypo um the beetle on hypo I always forget the whole name but yeah
    I do like that it's just that the E stinks so I get my zap at Bass Pro Shops
    yeah we used to string with fishing line oh cool Leslie nice you'll love them
    they're really pretty the buttons are really really pretty and the fire polishes to die for
    I'm loving my Jewel arm look at all of this amazingness isn't that crazy what
    we can do with our looms I'm always um I'm just always like blown away and
    especially when I see everybody you know what they've been doing and what they've done and
    um it just yeah blows my mind
    yeah it might be affordable but yeah I don't I don't think it's like probably the best for us to be breathing in
    so yeah I love it too I love looming of course it makes me happy
    and these are just fun too we have like little Stevie Nicks suede funness are there just trying to
    see I'm back to the fire polish Shameless I'm sorry I just can't I can't
    help let's see um this palette might
    see like with the oh yeah that would look so pretty too huh the Browns that are in
    the kit so this is there's one fire polish collection
    that has 29 strands one that has 12 strands and the secret is that
    at the end of your order you get an opportunity to buy the 10 strand
    for like 33 percent off so
    that's a pretty good deal but yeah look at this with this color with the the ambers and
    that would look really pretty with the Sedona too but I'm loving all the pinks that I did
    with the Sedona bracelet a super Gorge so yeah so okay let me just see here a
    big hole at the end of each leather end would be nice yes you can do that as well absolutely yeah they're so
    um listen I just always try to show an idea and Empower you
    to then you know decide uh you know what
    you what you want to do with that idea what you what do you want to do with that technique that I show you do do you
    want to use it exactly the way I taught you or do you want to expand on it and I love when you expand on it
    so yeah yeah that's 29 strands of fire polish
    for 26 dollars it's like 84 cents a strand it's like it's a great
    opportunity it's a great and it's a it's an opportunity where I bought into something that was being you know like I
    can't go back and get it and so once they're gone they're gone yep that is what I love so much we can

    stuff for efficiency to make sure that things are running smooth so always just
    kind of looking at at how to better serve you and so um and just like Jules was saying before
    the show she's been renaming some of the playlists so they make more sense than the names we had on them you know in
    YouTube yeah so I went in and I I gave a playlist
    every you know how to use the original jewel loom how to use your large wisdom Warrior how to use the small Sun Weaver
    so like every Loom should have a playlist and so if you're just kind of
    wondering hey I got the large wisdom Warrior you know what do I do with her how do I
    warp her so we're we're gonna feed those how to playlists with the videos that
    make sense um and yeah and so just trying to make things
    easy I want you to learn I don't ever want you to like have a loom
    in your closet
    but um hey Carmen Carmen's in the house let's see I remember getting what's going on great experts on your team
    I'm very very very very very blessed with my Joan and my Claudia and my I got
    Leona I got a lot of people who that's a smart thing too in business I'm just
    gonna tell you don't you know think don't try to do it all because we're not perfect at everything especially when it
    comes to technology like if you don't get it and you're in business surround yourself the people who do and
    I gotta tell you something so I'm kind of an ant Google analytics nerd
    so what did I do this past weekend I sat with my laptop and I like yeah like that was my date
    and so I I went to the Google analytics and
    um and I was like who who are these people who's coming you know wait what does
    this say I got something happened I saw that like what is he they turned to see a furious
    my husband's furry but oh my God
    well here you could use some fast grabb Elaine's tacky group rip it off oh my
    God that is so funny anyway I'm a total Google analytics goofball
    and I was having so much fun looking at the traffic and who comes from where
    because I like this kind of stuff like I want to know Joe is dying
    um and so the interesting thing and I have to apologize because I am always saying
    ladies or you know girlfriends and guess what we have
    25 male visitors I do not know if they're free
    Harry I don't know the Google analytics does not tell me if they're a bunch of hairy
    dudes but what they do say is that 25 of our audience is men and so I would like
    to welcome all of the men and I apologize for not
    from now on I'll be like hey man
    and the other super cool thing yeah they're super cool thing is that
    our demographics yes are typically from like that 30 something to all the way
    um into the 80s and 90s believe it or not but we have been honored with 18 to
    34 year olds and I just want to give you all a shout out because
    creativity is like it's so
    um healing it's so Soulful and when you're young and you're exploring and
    you're like even remotely taking the time to watch this crazy
    you know with with my loom I'm so grateful like I'm super super grateful
    and I'm super pumped for you and I just want to extend like hey if you need help
    let me know um but that's such a huge compliment and
    I'm just I'm really mostly excited for you because I think it's super cool
    um I was lucky enough to have you know a Portuguese grandma and an aunt who crocheted and knitted and my mom who
    macramade you know so and and so that's like where I was
    kind of learning I didn't have the YouTubes and so um so yeah so major
    thank you shout out to our 18 to 34 year olds amazing love to
    this category and our 25 of men
    so I just thought that was I'm so corny I know I'm sorry I want to see what the
    18 to 34 year olds are making in the morning I bet they are really inspiring I'm
    I'm telling you I was like this was Saturday morning like sitting in bed with my coffee looking at Google
    analytics that's you know just like because it's good as an owner to
    understand your your clients your customers you want to be able to serve
    them and I really like when I saw that pie and it said 25 male
    I was like hey
    oh look at Cara Cara says it's because of my tick tocks hey you never know when
    I was thinking your love cuff [Laughter]
    Hey listen the love cough got me right under a half a million views so it did I
    had to check that out now and see how many you have oh my God so funny Terry is saying I'm

    else just bought some limbs um Judith Judith who was in Prague with me

    if you're a 25 male 25 male yeah
    only 25 but we send no I mean really I love to see everybody's everything
    um well not everything but you know what I'm saying it's just exciting it's exciting and I'm
    being Giddy and serious all in the same breath because you see we have a a Facebook group we have the jewel
    jewelry making by Jewel is that what it's called I don't even know what my own group's called she'll and so there's
    a plethora of people in there and they're predominantly women and they post and they post and they post and
    they post and and so we're I'm just excited because this is a new category of people
    and um and so my heart is just like oh my God I
    just want to see what you're doing you know like I would just love to see what you're doing are you making friendship
    bracelets what are you going to do to attract them to show us what they're doing and where
    they would like show it you know like if it's not the story making of Julian page what kind of
    place would you like for us to make so you would show it well you know the texting comments in the video and in
    YouTube I mean but the texting um Community takes pictures they can text
    they can text the texting Community with a photo and just say hey you know oh yeah and then we can share
    it yeah I guess yeah something like that but anyway
    so that's my nerdy input for the day and
    I know that's interesting because I I often wondered if I mean I didn't imagine 25 man but I often wondered if
    we had at least a handful of men you know neither did I I was like who needs match
    it's hot Jules bringing them in girls
    no programming for my dating
    it's YouTube dating oh God here's where it all goes south
    yeah I think oh it's 7 58 I think that's
    what's telling us it's time this is what happens when it's time to go but anyway listen I love you all and I appreciate
    you all and and I'm so grateful to you there is nothing better than waking up
    to what you have created and how you show it um Ileana was tagging creative
