First Blogoversary..Remembrance Day...

Its my blog's first birthday...More than anything...its a great remembrance day for me...The quilling has turned my world into a very beautiful place...even my boredom into an artistic piece of work...
With just 6 months of active blogging (Sep-March), 42 blog posts, it had hit a century blog admirers very recently...This would not be possible without the wonderful visitors and blogger friends like you all...

Thank you all so much for all your support, encouragement and hope this journey continues well with all your  wishes and constant supportive words.

What i can give to you all on this special day of mine, other than preparing a small quilled card..
Here for you ...

Tag at the back of card

Made a pocket to hold a tag at the back of the card to leave message...
Hope you all like it.

I love QUILLING and Love to express my LOVE through Quilling....

So, on this special day, i loved to contibute few of my quilled flowers and leaves to LOVE Quilling Charity of Japan.

Its my way of expression....through EXPRESSIVE CREATIONS!!!

This charity is started to pay back the love for the people who make donations for Japan's tsunami and Earthquake victims.The charity gathers quilled flowers, leaves and insects and make small envelopes, cards as a way of gratitude towards donations made.

I can very well recall the day of Japan's earthquake and tsunami on March 11, 2011 as Taiwan also gave alert warning throughout the country and we had many earthquake aftershocks. After a day, warning signals were withdrawn and the country was declared safe from tsunami.

Here is my small contribution of quilled flowers and leaves for this wonderful team of people termed Love Quilling Charity. These are ready to make their journey to Japan soon. If you love to express yours, then check here to contribute.

And a special thanks to my dear Blogger pal Suganthi of Daydreams...her constant encouraging words has turned into this one year old blog of mine!!!

Thanks once again dear blogger pals and visitors!!!!
