Fun and Easy Holiday Crafts

Welcome to 2good2lose.com. I created this website in December 1998 to put all the emails I recieved in the early days of the Internet. I was sent so many cute emails that year, I didn't want to lose them, so I put them online! Enjoy them as much as I do.

This is my fun website! Also below are other personal pages that I added that are 2 Good 2 Lose, mostly my favorite easy crafts, hobbies and other stuff like that.
