Back and with a new look!

Morning all!

I'm just starting to get back into the swing of things. When your gone for nearly a week it kind of throws you off. I had a blast at the German Fest though and got to help my friend out with all of her wedding stuff. So it definitely was a fun 4 day weekend!

Well, I finally got my hair done and it looks pretty cute! I'm a red head now!

Here are a couple Christmas cards I made that I just had to share with ya'll.

As always, enjoy! Be back soon!

Quilled Angel

Took my first attempt at a quilled person, which is a bit more difficult than your basic quilling. But hey, I'll only get better with practice!

My bestie is coming into town this weekend and I'll be working on her Save the Dates and other wedding stuff. Should be fun! And we are also going to a 6x6 Calendar Class tomorrow, can't wait.
