Happy V-Day everyone!

Heart you

I hope you all have a wonderful day. Been busy, busy with work and just trying to get more done at home so I can enjoy more crafting time like last night, when I furiously quilled little hearts for some friends today. Have you heard of quilling? The next time you are in a craft store, just check out the quilling section. I was amazed by the variety of papers and tools one can purchase for this cool craft. Amazing. I treated myself last year to one tube of paper and a small quilling pen (the blue tool you see) but really, you can use a paper cutter to cut regular paper and then use a pencil or skewer stick for the same effect. That's how we did it growing up! :)

I have indeed heard of quilling, and I keep thinking I'll try it one of these days. You'll have to post a photo of something you create! Maybe that will be inspiration to try it out!

My wife says she has heard of this and seen it before, but has never done it. It looks pretty. By the way, I love all the colors, shapes and lines in this pic.
