Welcome & Disclaimer

Hello & welcome to SuthrnPrincess Tuts. I am so excited that you stopped in to see what I have made with the gorgeous tubes and fabby kits that are out there. You will find FTU & PTU kits as well as FTU & PTU Tubes are used in my tutorials. If you run into a problem on a tut please feel free to email me and I will help if I can. My use of a FTU tube does not give you permission to use it. I have obtained permission either from the artist themselves or through a group to use their artwork. You need to personally contact them to obtain permission before using.

**Disclaimer**

The tuts contained within this blog are my own creation. They came from my brain and were created by my own hand. Any resemblance to the works of others is completely coincidental.

postheadericon Away message

I have been out over a week now preparing to move. We officially begin the moving process tomorrow and I will be without net for a few days. The unpacking will take me a bit as well. In other words I am going to be out for a few more weeks. I should be back before December 1st with new tutorials. Have a blessed Thanksgiving holiday!
