life is sweet.....hop a long with us

Hello everyone and welcome to the LIFE IS SWEET QUILLING BLOG HOP. Not familiar with hopping....well this is how it works. You {the wonderful hopper} are to make your way through the quilling blogs {starting at the first blog on the list} where you'll find new projects and perhaps a chance to win a little blog candy. The Hop starts today, Saturday January 29th at 8 am {est} and will feature quilling blogs from around the world so there should be a plethora of eye candy....are you ready to hop a long with us? If you have arrived from Shruti then you are in the right place. If you have not, you need to go see Sandy at or click here for the starting point of this blog hop.

As a lot of you know,I am a sucker for 3d quilling so for my 'sweet' item I have made a wedding cake. It looks good enough to eat~ And what do you use for a cake stand on a mini wedding cake you might ask....well a wine glass is the perfect solution. Once I am done with this hop I am going to turn the wine glass over and fill it up {can't wait}. I am sorry to say that I don't have blog candy for this hop because my blogoversary is Feb 1st {so you know what that means}...make sure you stop by that day to see what I have to give to one lucky winner. As usual...I took oodles of pictures but managed to pare it down to enjoy.

The next blog you are to hop to is Regina at handmade by Regina who is a wonderful quiller from South America. I first saw her work through the North American Quilling Guild and she does amazing work so hop on over to see the 'sweet' quilling she has to share. 

If you get lost along the way, here is the entire list of quillers participating in the hop.

Thanks for taking the time to comment. I read each and every comment and appreciate all of them.
