If you have read my profile you know this love affair with paper started in 1983.
I did start out making little Christmas people. There was Santa & Mrs. Claus, an Elf, Angel, Drummer Boy & a Snowman. The snowman is still part of my designs today. I did have a following of people, just like I do for my birds & snowflakes. Every year I would make a new design just like today. I also made lovely Gel Candles, which helped me push into the craft shows in my area. Back than my name & website was Notjustquilling.
Than in 2009 Country Living approached me to feature my Chickadee Ornament in their Dec/Jan 2010 magazine. This really jump started my business.
The following year I received an order from a company Cardinal Industries for 100 Cardinals for their customers.
Acouple months ago I did provide some Snowflakes for the back drop of a photo shoot.
I have been a part of the Etsy community since 2007. My customers are wonderful. Here are a just a few of their comments:
These quilled snowflakes are beautiful. I will definitely be buying more. They exactly as pictures and described. Thank you !!
Beautiful workmanship and lovely customer service (as usual).
The photos are beautiful but they don't come close to showing how very lovely these ornaments are. I am amazed at the meticulous work and the talent that went into creating them. And I am very grateful for the fast turnaround on the order. Thank you so much!
In the mist of all this wonderfulness I moved, downsizing from a normal home to a tiny home. But it is all good in the end, I am very happy quilling & going to the beach & the Assateague wildlife refuge. There is so much inspiration here.
