Yesterday was day off. Seems my grocery store job scheduler likes giving me Wednesday off these days. I spoke with him today, b/c it just doesn't work for me. It makes way too much work for me on me 3 days away from a job where I'm in charge of a major order just doesn't work.
No is what it is...I'm not here to complain about work.
I'm here to show off my newest quilling project. Oh, right, there was a point to my rambling about day off. I had chores to do in the morning, then a walk to the beach. We always end up chatting with our bakery friends anyway, but yesterday I ran into an old friend I hadn't seen in a long time, so, before we knew it, it was nearly 1pm!! The super sucky part was that I had to be back to my kennel job for our annual OSHA meeting at 5 last night.
So I ran 2 miles to get my exercise in (not that walking 3 miles to the beach wasn't enough, but you know...running...sometimes it actually is therapeutic!). Then, I played with some paper for a bit.
I twirled a bunch of strips i cut from old scraps hubby had brought home from his other job (back when he still had that job!). I set them out as I liked them
...but then, I bumped them, and saw a big one next to a smaller one, and thought it looked like crazy eyes. Like the bird from the coco puffs commercial. that is what i made...
I thought it would stand up, but it's tail is too heavy. Or, his 'feet' aren't strong enough.
Anyway, I thought it was funny.
I also had an idea to quill some nursery rhymes.
Here's the start of 3 Blind Mice:
cute, huh?

  1. This is fun stuff! I always love paper "stuff"!!

    Read your post about Etsy shops as well...decided to leave my shops names just the way they are. I decided a long time ago to sell my photographing in a separate shop. Keeps things from getting "lost" in Etsy-land!!
