Episode 58: Fairy Tales Retold

In this episode before España goes to the UK, the girls talk about the re-telling of fairy tales from different points-of-view, starting with Malificent (don't worry, no spoilers). They discuss some of their favorite books, movies, and authors who have utilized this particular genre. Then in crafting, España waxes about seeing her beading supplies again in the UK, Sandy talks about her new alpaca fleece, and Jade can't really talk about her super seekrit (not-so-seekrit) project.
