Quilling Paper Water Lilies

It has been one very wet spring so far, here in Delaware. Our backyard is so soggy, it reminds me of a swamp. And swamps remind me of frogs.

Border Buddy Quilling Tool Review

If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you’ve seen me write time and time again about quilling tools. But, I’ve only written about the tools you really need to start quilling.

Quilling Paper Horseshoes

My mom began one of my favorite family traditions about 14 years ago. One Saturday afternoon in March, we all gather together at her house to enjoy what she’s dubbed the “Green Dinner”. To celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, everyone wears green clothes and eat corned beef, shepherd’s pie, and turnips. The house is decorated and we all get Irish party favors. The kicker is that my sister and I contribute some green food or recipe to the meal. This seems simple enough.…

But this year, I’m bringing the festival to me and sharing some quilling paper cherry blossoms! This…

The 4 Types of Glue Every Quilling Artist Needs

We’ve all been there. You’re in the craft store, where you swore you were just going to pick up that one thing for your next project. The next thing you know, you’re at the checkout with $60 worth of who knows what in your cart. No judgment; I’ve been there many times. We crafters are notorious supply hoarders. But I’ve been on a mission lately to declutter my stash and make my supplies multitask. Yet, the one place I just…
