Yes, I know that's a wide range of topics that I'm planning to cover!
First of all: Pinterest. Unfortuately, I've discovered that evil website. ;-)
Just kidding about it being evil...addicting does apply though. If you would like to follow me on Pinterest, you can find me listed as stacy27c.
Now here are a couple of ideas that I discovered on Pinterest and have actually done. The first is an ornament that I did as a small present for my niece's wedding. The curls are created by slicing the wedding invitation up. The only thing that I did differently from the original post is to use a knitting needle to wrap the paper around.
The second is a box made out of paper strips. I actually made this to hold the ornament. The post for that one I think is in Japanese but easy enough to see how to do it. I used scrapbooking paper to make mine. It took two sheets of 12" x 12" paper.
Next comes some WIP progress! I worked on what is now my focus piece: 12 Days of Christmas from Teresa Wentzler. I finished off Days 5 and 6 which puts me at the half-way mark!
Since that was my goal for this turn in my rotation, I've put it aside for a bit and my randomizer chose Rapunzel from HAED as my next WIP.
And now for the animals mentioned in the title. I live in the beautiful Pacific Northwest of the United States. On the way home from church last week, my husband and I were treated to this sight:
For those who might not know what these lovely creatures are, they are Roosevelt Elk. These are all cows (females) and calves.
