Quilling: Cross with Hymnal Music

I thought it would look nice to make something with quilling out of strips from the leftover hymnal music I have. One of my good friends is getting married in a couple of weeks, so I made her something as a wedding gift. So here's what I made.

Here are some more shots of it.

I really enjoyed making this, and I think I want one for our house. So I might make a bigger version of this. But right now I need to focus on the quilling project someone is paying me for.

So tell me what you think! I love reading the comments. :)

20 Minute Card

I had lunch with my best friend on Saturday to celebrate her graduation and new job. While I was getting ready to meet her, I thought I should give her a card for this. So I quilled some flowers and leaves, and I came up with this. It took me 20 minutes. It's not actually Adrienne-approved, but for just 20 minutes it'll do. My friend plus the waitress at the restaurant thought it was really cute. That's all that matters huh?

Sorry the photos are blurry. It's the best I can do with my phone. :P

Paint Chips Project Finished.......I think

I finally finished the paint chip project I wanted to do. I still have other ideas up my sleeves, but this one project will satisfy me for now. I first told you about the project here. I love the way it all looks on our mantle!

I'm constantly changing things on the mantle because I haven't found that ONE perfect thing to do there. The big hole drives me crazy most of the time because I can't figure out a great and unique way to do something there. So for now, it looks like this. and I can live with it.

New Wreath for the Front Door

I finally got around to making the wreath I wanted for the front door. My time was busy with quilling lately, so it was nice to get back to something else for a second. But I'm ready to get back to quilling though ;)

So here's what I made! I used a straw wreath (still in the plastic), wrapped yarn around it a million times, and made cute felt roses. Add some simple ribbon, and viola!

I enjoy making wreaths, so I think I'll make some for birthday and Christmas gifts this year. I assume that my mom and sister-in-law might like one. :)

Just wanted to say welcome and thanks to my first two followers: Katherine and Barbara! Thanks so much, ladies! I hope you enjoy what you see here. Right now I'm working on a wreath for our front door, and it's almost finished. I'll post photos when it's complete. :)

Update: Quilling Tree

Well, my quilling tree was a huge success at the silent auction! It kind of started a bidding war, and the person who won it told me they were SO excited to get it! I got a ton of compliments on it as well, and people even said they had no idea I "was so talented". Ha! I don't know if I'll say it's talent, but I appreciate the comment just the same :)

The leader of the silent auction has already asked me to make another quilling piece for the auction next year. And after I showed it to my boss, she now wants me to make the Alabama logo with this technique and she is going to pay me! Plus another person wants me to quilling something for her daughter's bar mitzvah. And one of the people who bid on my project but lost has asked me to make something for her. and she'll pay me as well! This could turn into a small business, it seems!

So it looks like I'll be doing a lot more quilling. But I love it, so that's ok! However, I think this weekend, I want to work on something else besides quilling. I think our front door really needs a wreath. :)
