around here, things are a special kind of crazy!

I've started a new hobby! It's called quilling, and apparently it an ancient art invented by monks to decorate religious relics and stuff using tightly rolled scraps of thin paper leftover from book making. These days though, it's mostly used for making cards, embellishments, and 3D structures. I've made 5 cards so far, however one of them has been banished from the light of day for being ugly, and one of them really is just a few strips of paper glued to a card. The other three turned out well though!

If you noticed the middle one is a birthday card! An adorable friend of ours is turning 5 tomorrow and her party is on Saturday! I'm making her gift out of this:

yea before shot ;)
Bonus point to anyone who can guess what it will be! That picture is the only hint you get until Saturday after the party, I don't want to spoil the surprise.
