Quilling a Tree

Inspired by one of my favorite poems, Trees by Joyce Kilmer

I think that I shall never see
A poem lovely as a tree

A tree whose hungry mouth is prest
Against the earth's sweet flowing breast

A tree who looks to God all day,
And lifts her leafy arms to pray;
A tree that may in summer wear
A nest of robins in her hair.
Upon whose bosom snow has lain;
Who lives intimately with rain.

Poems are made by fools like me,
but only God can make a tree.

Collaboration Revives Enthusiasm for Quilling

Since I'm training for the 3-Day Walk in November, I haven't had much time nor inspiration to quill.   One of my teammates is a graphic artist and designed some cards that we embellished.  I was excited putting a new spin on my quilling, collaborating with others and having fun!  All for a good cause.  Proceeds of all sales will go to our team for San Diego's 3-Day Walk for the Cure in November.
