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.

GIANT 3D quilled flower pot

Well, I just was able to finish this pot late last night.  I wanted to make a 3D quilled pot since I haven't in such a long time.  I noticed in my container full of strips that I had a lot of these really thick strips that I never used, so I used like 19 of them, so this pot is rather big.  I actually brought it to school yesterday since there were some classes I know I wasn't doing anything in (like my 'fun classes' since I am now on a four day weekend).  Anyway, I had time to do it in a few classes and in one of them a girl liked it so much she offered 15 dollars for it finished, and how could I refuse that?  Get money for my hobby?  Sure it's not that much considering how long it takes me, but how much should I expect a freshmen to pay?  Anyway, to me it just feels like someone is paying me to do something I would do anyway.  I wish my job was this fun!

3d quilled Dr. Suess Birthday Bird

Alright, this is the 3D quilling thing I finished a month or so ago, but I have procrastinated on hanging it (it was difficult to do so) which is when I wanted to take a pic of it :P.  I decided to make the birthday bird since I already made the Lorax.  They're rather fun to make.

This is my medicine cabinet, and eventually I plan to fill it with a bunch of quilled Dr. Suess character's, but for now it's just the BB.  I have to bring the Lorax down!  You can also see the panda I made a while ago!

I apologize for the lighting as well.  This is in my bathroom which has no windows since it's in the basement, and the lights ARE up all the way.

Could you also please vote in the little poll I have at the top right of my blog?  I would love to see your reasonings for your vote too, you can comment on that here as well :).

Autumn Wedding Card

Yes, I made a wedding card about 6 months ago...and here I am with another (plus it's been a while since I've posted anything.  I'm a busy girl!).  I know it's rather off beat that a wedding card is made with fall colors, and it was supposed to be since my cousin is as well!  I'm actually typing this right now in my aunt and uncle's house in Colorado in the beautiful mountains. 

I thought of this new method for my cards the other days that I used here.  I wanted a fancy phrase to put on the card in fancy writing...but out of my millions of stamps I had none that were good enough!  So, I asked if I could print some text on a sheet of cardstock, and my dad didn't know, so I tried it and it worked!  I will SO be doing that from now on.
I also have this other quilled thing that I made a while ago, and I have to get around to hanging it up and taking a pic of it to post it here.
