What is this blog?

This blog is about my crafts as I'm sure it's obvious, but rather specifically I post about my quilling. I suppose I didn't include quilling in the title simply because that would limit what I could put in this blog. In other words, 99% of this is in fact quilling.

There ARE periods where I don't post anything for a long time, but that doesn't mean I'm done with quilling! I'll post again. Eventually.

The "unlimited pattern" method!!

I lack the ability to create my own patterns sometimes for some things, I suppose it's because I lack the ability to draw. There are definitly quillers like me that love to quill and possibly other paper crafts, but can't draw or paint! That's me. Anyway, my "unlimited pattern" method is simply finding what you want to quill on the internet, and changing the size, printing it, and putting your quilling over it! Do you ever quill like this? If you want it to be simple, look up a "cartoon" version of what you want to quill! I like to do this instead of looking up patterns because I feel like I'm at least partially coming up with it on my own, know what I mean? If I use a pattern...it just doesn't feel right to me, LOL. That was how I was able to quill this cat, I tried to draw it...but I fail at that!!

I think I will be quilling like this again if I'm quilling something like that, since you won't ever have to do that with flowers or something similar! My 3D designs are all my own as of late, but that's just different to me then some flat quilling!
As you can see, I also made the cat a cute little ball of yarn! Also, you may extrapolate that I make cards, which I do! I love the paper crimper! I also have a homeade for you stamp on the back. If you're a quiller and you make cards, even if you don't stamp, I recomend getting that one stamp! It's like the hallmark thing you see on the back of cards-but YOU made it! You don't even need stamp pads, markers work just fine!


  1. Your cat is really cute. I love his expression and the colors of his fur.

  2. Thanks! I totally should take a side pic of the cat...because I cut 3 mm paper as thin as possible to make the features. Like...I wouldn't doubt it if it were 1/2 mm wide. Now THAT was hard to work with!
