The three images above are of quilled flowers: wild tomatoes, yellow roses, and hairy leschenaultias. I made these in January of 2008, intending to create a sampler of quilled flowers. I managed to get only these three done, but maybe some day I'll make the rest. So many other projects, tools, and supplies are competing for my attention!

Hi everyone! Well, I finally found time to create a site where people can view my cards and other paper projects. I figured a blog would be easier than updating my long-untouched website, so here it goes!
I haven't taken pictures of my recent work yet, but I'll be posting some older stuff over the next few days just to get started. I do sell my work and will consider custom orders, so feel free to get in touch with me if you're interested.
The picture above is of quilled flowers on a greeting card. Quilling is basically rolling thin strips of paper into coils that are then pinched into different shapes. These ones were made using 1/8" paper on its edge, so the card is just over 1/8" thick. The quilled designs are sturdier than you might think, although they do sometimes get crushed in the mail if you're not careful. These designs are quite intricate--the pictures really don't do them justice!
