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.

Very abstract quilled 'bird' picture


Hi everyone! I think at this point the people that are seeing my posts (though it's been so long), must be finding my blog randomly through Google or Pinterest. I have issues with posting a lot. A big part of this is because I'm lazy with quilling, and since I'm away at college now, it's kind of hard to get quilling in.  I did put in some command hooks though to hold the dowel with the strips I need for my projects! It has worked out awesome. Since I'm in the midst of working on something, it's not hanging up right now, but it's allowed me to keep my strips nice at school! (In other news, I'm turning 21 tomorrow woo! I usually wouldn't say since I'm sure no one cares, but I'm finally going to be a full fledged adult xD).


I like abstract colorful things, so months ago I finally found the perfect picture to base it off! Luckily I have lots of strip colors now but I still had to buy more! I will use them eventually! I think it looks like an abstract bird. I will just let the pictures speak for themselves, and I have one more thing to say a few pictures down.







I wanted to hang up my quilled pictures in my room here. My first abstract tree hung up well with command strips, but while I was home for the weekend, this one fell! (Sorry for the crappy lighting, it's bright as day here, but my room is facing the north so sun doesn't shine in).


The problem is that the hanging up area goes in, and the edges aren't enough to properly hold the command strips! If only I could hang it into the wall. I have no clue how to hang it up, unless maybe instead of two command strips, I put on four.
