Wow, I just want to thank all of you who have chosen to follow my blog; I never would have imagined I'd have that many people who would like to check in and see and read what I've been up to - as of today I have 201 followers, how fabulous is that.
I'm still working hard at having enough items for the upcoming craft fair, in between getting ready for that; I had another custom card order - a rooster with the text De Colores. I have never quilled a rooster so it was another nice challenge. My husband just asked me the other day why I hadn't done any roosters for him, looks like after this I might have too; he liked it and I hope the recipient likes it as well. I tried to not get too complicated with it, which was difficult for me; this was actually my second try - the first rooster parts ended up in the garbage, they were too intricate and too big. I did another sketch of what I wanted the rooster to look like and it worked much better second time around. The text was die cut on my Cricut, which doesn't get much use these days; so it was kind of nice to use it again.

Here is another set of paper bowls (still looking for a clever name for them), these have fringed flowers instead of petaled flowers. I LOVE these, the colors are so pretty in person; will have to do a set for me to have on my desk at work.
