Valentine’s Day is next week!
Since WordPress tells me that I get lots of views on my blog from searches related to quilling, I thought I’d share a really simple quilled Valentine. Complete with requisite corny Valentine pun. 🙂
So let’s get to it!
Last time I checked in with you guys, it was Friday. And I had no dessert. But I also needed to make a card for my husband’s grandma’s 85th birthday.
So the husband went out and got us some Dairy Queen, and then I had the energy to make a card. There is a direct correlation between the intake of dessert and the output of crafts.
Anyhow. I started out like I always do– browsing Google images for inspiration.
Ok, guys, I’ma get real for a minute. (Please excuse the ridiculous slang.) I feel that it is of utmost importance to respect others’ creative ideas. While I peruse the internet for inspiration, I go out of my way not to copy others’ designs. Occasionally I have made crafts I’ve found on other websites, but I don’t generally blog about those things (and if I do, I link back to the original site.) So I want to ask you to do the same. I would be honored if any of you wanted to make some of my crafts for your own personal use, but please don’t claim others’ hard work as your own original idea, and under no circumstances sell those products without permission from the artist. Be cool, ok? I’ll do the same for you.
Ok, so now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, let me tell you about this card I made. (more…)
For Mother’s Day this year, I decided to make quilled cards.
Quilling is relatively easy, once you have the right tools.
It is, however, time-consuming. Especially when you get a little over zealous.
I’ve come to the realization that I’m a crafting masochist. I always choose insanely detailed and time-consuming projects.
But they’re pretty. 🙂
