I have wanted to do quilling for a very long time now. I bought the beginning supplies at Hobby Lobby and then bought some boards and tools from an online quilling store. Quilling is making shapes with thin pieces of colored paper. It is done by curling the paper with a small tool. 🙂
A few weeks ago I sat in my living room and made my first item. It was fun and relaxing. I can’t wait to do some more projects with lots of different shapes.
I would like to sell a few once I get going with it. 🙂
This was the finished first item, a dragonfly. I love dragonflies.
This is what I did with it. My hubby has lots of wood pieces from projects so I decided to put one to use. 🙂
This is sitting on our fireplace mantel. 🙂
I’ve been enjoying the small art projects this month. It is getting my creative juices flowing.
With the end of May brings June, I will dive back into editing my book for the final pass. 🙂 I wanted a break from it.
I see a notice saying happy anniversary. Didn’t realize I began on my oldest son’s birthday. It has been 4 years since I entered the blogging world. I hope to have many more! I enjoy it a lot. In a way it is my socializing. Thank you to all who follow! Keep writing everyone!
I don’t keep my payment method saved in WordPress because I really hate automatic renewals. Half the time the companies put the payment through before it is due which to me is wrong when I have a budget I follow. I don’t mind a couple days but I have had companies do a week to two weeks early. Upsets me. 🙁
I went to look at my blog on my computer this weekend and there was a blackened screen with a reminder that my WordPress premium was due in about ten days. Yes, I know, I got the email and have it saved and figured into my budget for the weekend before it is due.
I tried to dismiss it with the X and it would not go away. So I found the chat button to talk to support. They tried to say it was a problem with Explorer. Nope, it did it again with FireFox. Understand they are just trying to keep your site from expiring but it was wrong to block me from seeing my blog. I could move around the editing stuff but I like to look how my blog looks, plus I tend to use it more to reply to people.
I could see the blog on my phone but I like using the computer for writing and replying. To me WordPress doing this was denying me my already paid time for my blog. Heck, maybe I didn’t want to renew and you pretty much short changed me a week of my paid time. They are lucky that I like WordPress and don’t quit the premium part. 🙂
I had to rant. Hope your day is going good! 🙂
Anyone else have issues with companies that do that automatic payment? I don’t even like saving the payment info. I prefer to input it every time it is due. 🙂
