    How nice to see it so clearly! I ordered 2 sets from Ali for my daughters aged 3 and 5, but I was already thinking about how to approach this, also because I really have to help them with it. Thank you, much clearer this way? Can't wait for it to arrive?

    What a nice one! I'm now working on my third one, from Wish, and they are all very different. I have no idea yet what I'm going to do with the result...

  4. What a nice one! I like minions. I still have to start mine from Beauty & the Beast. Very curious to see what I will think of it...

    So I had never heard of this before. I don't see myself doing it at all. Then I'd rather draw or color, so to speak. But I think it is a better result than that of the Action. I can imagine that it has a very soothing effect. Until you have to do one large area in one color. Then it seems dead boring to me again.

    Hi Els, nice that Diamond Painting. I'm going to try this too.. it also looks a lot like my pixel photo that hangs in our hallway.. I'm curious to see what result Diamond Painting would have if you did it with a personal photo.. greetings, Selfie

      Hey selfie :-), I think you'll definitely like this too. You can also order a diamond painting with your own photo on AliExpress. Have fun crafting, love Els

    That looks so nice! I want to try it again myself, because it seems so much fun and something to do. When I first heard of Diamond Painting it reminded me a bit of Ministeck which I did a lot before haha.

    How fun to see the process! I knew roughly how it worked, but I had never worked with it myself. Nice to see that this package also contains some more details. I always really like that in embroidery and crochet work, for example.

    I don't know how you do it, Els, but you got me wanting to try it too haha!

    Oh this is cute! I also thought that a lot of white in my image became a bit boring at a certain point, so that is recognizable!
    I have mine hanging in a frame in the toilet. I also want to make a few smaller ones (currently had 40x40) and I would put them in frames. Maybe put it somewhere or give it as a gift, that depends a bit.

    How nice that you bought one! I've now made two per season. And these get a place in the toilet. 🙂

    I have now made a number of them and they all hang framed in the house. Now that it is "full", I recently started making one for a friend. A photo of her dog. She paid for the package herself, because she really wanted this. She didn't want to do this herself hahaha. So always a nice idea to make this on request. You stay busy and someone else is happy with it, so you are in fact letting someone else pay for your hobby 😉 I often make large sizes, because then it takes you a nice long time.

    How nice! I was curious about how exactly diamond painting works, now I know 🙂

    How nice that you are so enthusiastic about diamond painting and the end result looks really nice! I think it would be wonderfully relaxing (and indeed addictive) to do this for a few hours with a nice series 🙂

I would really appreciate a response to this article :)
