Completion

com·ple·tion

Function: noun

Meaning: 1 [noncount] : the act or process of completing or finishing something : the state of being complete or finished He will receive his degree upon completion of his studies. The project is near completion. [=almost finished]


 Upon completion of Duke's nap he will entertain you with a short presentation of my most recently completed project.

Happy Saturday everyone. Now that I am bright eyed and busy tailed I would like to show you the jumbo quilling project that my mom was working on

The flowers are very pretty but they don't smell like real flowers do. 

Even though it is snowing outside it feels like spring time inside with this bright little pot of flowers. Even the butterfly likes it.

That concludes my presentation. I hope you enjoyed it. 

Well done Duke. You did good. Now it's off to the kitchen for a special treat.

  1. The second picture posted here is beyond words! SO ADORABLE! (Both Duke, and the Project!) This could be made into a poster and sold to 4th grade girls to hang up in their rooms! So precious!

  3. OMG, that is so cute, those wonderful flowers. And Duke you sure did do a good presentation. You don't even have to water those. What a good deal. Your Mom did a super job on those. We are really impressed. Have a great week end.

  6. Oh, I LOVE LOVE LOVE it!!!!! Everything about it! It seems you can make these really fast! I've never known anyone who does this, and had never seen any before you. It must be a kind of rare craft. Why isn't it more popular, it is so beautiful and versatile!
