What is this blog?

This blog is about my crafts as I'm sure it's obvious, but rather specifically I post about my quilling. I suppose I didn't include quilling in the title simply because that would limit what I could put in this blog. In other words, 99% of this is in fact quilling.

There ARE periods where I don't post anything for a long time, but that doesn't mean I'm done with quilling! I'll post again. Eventually.

Bright love birds quilled card.

Hey guys, I'm here with a new card I made!  I made it for my grandma since she had MINOR shoulder surgery today.
I wanted to quill a bird, so I looked it up on images so I could quill over it.  I found two adorable lovebirds and printed it out.  I put the quilling on some old cork (I need new cork-my grandma gave me hers from when she was young).  It, like, sheds brown dust..Anyway, I was obsessing over having the quilling stick right in all the right places, so I put on so many straight pins in it...there was more on the yellow bird, but I moved them to the other bird as I quilled.
Also, I did do some similar color schemes from the image, but I also changed up the colors too.

This is the finished version.  I figured it needed a little spice, so I cut it diagonally, added a few strips of paper to the edges, and some dots of glitter glue!
