  1. Super duper cute..Love them all..

  2. OMG!!!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE this blog. I'm not sure how I stumbled on it, but I am sooo HAPPY I did. I am a lover of all things crafty. Quilling is actually my newest technique I am learning. My craft of choice is making journals, or smash journals, and I am a beader. So I also make my own paper beads. I just love crafting with paper, and making the paper to craft with. You have created some awesome works of art with your paper crafting skills. Your handmade quilling tool with the needle and cork is quite creative. I look forward to following this blog. It's quite different from the blogs I normally follow, which are related to homeschooling. I even have started a homeschool blog, if ya want to call it a blog...lol. I will definitely make mention of your wonderful crafty blog. You are talented. Thanks for sharing. (Apologies for rambling) Happy Crafting and have a great summer!!!
    God Bless,
    Kim H.
