Quilly Qute!

Natalie (age 11) started quilling paper (twirling strips to make paper objects) a couple of years ago. She's learned to do it really well and really fast. At Michael's one day we saw some really simple quilled items with a name brand on them (it rhymes with Lartha Looart). I told Natalie the ones she makes were better than those and an idea was hatched! We've just listed 2 sets of quilled embellishments on my Etsy site. Feel free to hop on over and take a gander at www.chefmama.etsy.com

I have 2 more sets of pictures to crop and edit before listing. Here are the 4 sets she's selling to give you an idea. If you have an idea you'd like her to try, she's open to making just about anything.
Beautiful Butterflies

Adorable Animals
Fishy Friends
The Food Pyramid (LOL!)


Thanks for stopping by!

Tell Natalie she has quite the talent. I think her future is secured. :) Very nice, I cannot pick a fave. Lartha Looart better watch out.

Wow, she is good! I've often wondered how quilling was done but don't have the patience to figure it out. Not to mention I would have to buy another tool!

Happy Valentines Day!
