Quilling Paper Pumpkin

So, of course, I couldn’t let one more week go by without sharing my own quilling paper pumpkin! This post contains affiliate links. If you click on the links below and make a purchase I…

The Dot

True story. When I was very young, I took classes at our local art museum. Every weekend, my mom would drive me into the city (which seemed like a really big deal at the time) and I would excitedly play with paints, charcoal, and paper. We even were taught how to make candles one week! But then, one Saturday morning, during a lesson in clay sculpture, a little boy who was sitting near me began to make fun of the…

How to Make Quilling Paper Paisley

I’m not one for wearing much in the way of flashy clothes. I tend to stay away from patterned clothes and stick to solid tops and jeans most days.

Quilling Paper Clouds

Just recently, my kids have started getting into cloud-watching. It took them a little while to understand what in the world I was talking about. But now, they can lie in the grass and stare up at the clouds for quite a while. Even when they’re riding in the car, they’ll look out the window and ask if I can see the dragon, eggplant, bicycle-riding elephant, or whatever it is that they’re seeing in the sky. All this cloud stuff got…

How to Make a Quilling Paper Dragonfly

After Mr. Craftery and I got married in 2009, we moved into a large townhouse in our town. It was a perfectly nice home and we stayed for a number of years until we had our children and started running out of room. One of my favorite things about that house was that every summer, dragonflies would appear from nowhere and buzz all around. I guess it was because our house backed up to a small forest. But the sight of…
