I love this! It is so great to see someone doing something interesting with quilling, not just cards with the same daisies on them. I quill myself. Anyway, I have a blog post about quilling, and I wondered if it was OK if I used this photo, and the elements quillings among the inspirational examples (credited and linked here, of course).

I know they are ugly as sin, but I have a special place in my heart for angler fish. Did you know that the female is the big one with the lit head, and the male is a tiny slug-like thing that blindy sniffs out a female and when he finds one he permanently fuses himself with her tissue, becoming basically a parasitic set of external gonads? The more you know.
Wow, it is amazing how detailed and intricate it is. Was it hard to make it symmetrical on such a tiny scale? I want to learn to do this kind of wire wrapping, and I don't think I've ever seen it before. Is there a name for the technique? Well, anyway, it is beautiful. I hope you don't mind, but I included a picture of this beautiful project as inspiration on my blog (linked and credited, of course). Let me know if thats alright.

As a huge nerd+a huge crafter, these are the coolest things ever. I am going to make these (well, not these, exactly, but something decoupaged with comic books). I have a blog, and I wanted to put these on there (linked and credited, of course) because they are the coolest decoupage things I found. Technically, the article is about Elmer's, which I know you didn't use, but I needed something that was decoupaged so that I could mention that modge podge is the same thing as thinned down Elmer's (you also didn't use Modge Podge, but someone replicating this project probably would, right?).

SO. COOL. These are gorgeous, and definitely on my list of things to make. I just wanted to let you know that I put a picture of these (credited and linked) on my craft blog, in an article about Elmer's glue. (I don't actually know what mixture you used for the paper mache, but I've always used Elmer's, and I was just looking for something gorgeous made with paper mache).

This is awesome! I have a blog, and I wrote an article which included examples of awesome things to do with hot glue, and this one what i used. But also, when I was little my family used to collect things in the fall and make a centerpiece for Christmas with all of the seed pods and nuts and leaves and mushrooms and stuff, and seeing this reminded me of that. So I wrote another blog post about that experience, and I'd like to put a picture of your project up there, if you don't mind. The address is http://sticktoyourglueguns.wordpress.com/2012/12/20/fall-collection-in-swing/ . I was also wondering, how long did this table art last? Did the mushrooms eventually shrivel or rot, or did they stay cool-looking for a while?
ummmm, I'm not sure where to post this. I can't find the poll. I've never voted in a craft challenge before, so I'm not sure whether it isn't up yet, or if it is just hiding somewhere that I don't know to look. Am I missing something?
