I was so excited when I got that email too!  I just bought a swarovski hotfix applicator (Bejeweler Pro) and I’m looking forward to using it for my invites and some accessories.  I can’t wait until it gets here!  I saw that they have hotfix pearls, I was thinking about maybe embellishing my veil myself, but I am nervous about it!  I wonder if its better to sew or use hotfix crystals?

Wow, thanks!  I usually get their emails but I must have missed this one.  I’ll go check it out!  Thanks again.

I didn’t think of that, yikes!  Thanks for the heads up.  I’m not so proficient at sewing, but I guess I could practice!

The applicator only cost $30 (inc. shipping) and since I’m going to use it for favors, invites, accessories, etc, I don’t think the price is too bad.  The crystals are expensive though, even buying them in bulk.  Rhinestones are a cheaper alternative but I wonder how they look in person.
