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…

Tips for Gluing Quilling to a Background

You never know when inspiration is going to strike. I had a lightning moment a few weeks ago while watching HGTV. Whatever show it was had a quick scene where it panned across a revamped room, and Bam!

I’ve been trying to figure out some sort of artwork for our powder room since we moved into…

So, this week I’m sharing a quick tutorial on how to make quilling paper spirals. This post contains affiliate links. If you click on the links below and make a purchase,…

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.

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…
