Quilling

My husband and I married in September 2012.  I loved planning the wedding and wanted to add as many personal touches that we had time for.  After combing through Pinterest I found a ton of inspiration and got to work…for 18 months.  Centerpieces, invitations, signs, games, a card-box, etc…our family room became wedding central.

After returning from our honeymoon I found myself walking around in circles.  I was bored.  My mind during the two years prior were completely consumed with wedding, wedding wedding and more wedding.  What would I do now?  I looked to Pinterest once again for idea’s and inspiration.  This picture started it all.  What was this?  After doing a bit of research I discovered quilling…
