Just dropping in to say a quick hello.
Thanks so much for all your kind words about my magazine ad. I'm anxious to see what you guys make with Timber once it's in stores. Speaking of which, it should be shipping soon and I promised to post a list of those of you shop owners carrying the whole line so people know where to go. So once you get your stock in, let me know and I'll link away.
It comes from the book Kanzashi in Bloom.
I think these flowers are gorgeous and so easy to make. The book gives basic techniques and then a bunch of sample projects. To be honest, I doubt I'd really do any of the actual projects, and the basic techniques are really very simple, but the book is still worth it as an easy reference and a good guide to which kinds of glue to use and stuff like that.
The holly leaves are made from wool felt.
