Quilled Red Truck with Tree

Quilled Red Truck with Tree

This Quilled Red Truck with Tree is literally the VERY LAST commission of the Christmas season! Now, don’t get me wrong, I have numerous commissions that are scheduled for after Christmas, but it’s time to take a tiny break and relax. I lost count of…

Demo Customers Wanted

Demo customers are wanted for a few cat pieces that I’d like to add to my 2021 lineup. The offer is 50% off the new items for people that sign up for each of the demo pieces I need to make. This way I get…

Quilled Letter G Monogram | Gardening Theme

Quilled Letter G Monogram | Gardening Theme

The last of the 2020 monograms is this Quilled Letter G Monogram | Gardening Theme. I think it came out pretty cute, especially considering the last minute rush to get it completed. I really like this cute little theme monogram. I’m partial to gardening and…

Quilled Letter M Monogram | Beach Theme

Quilled Letter M Monogram | Beach Theme

My mother requested this Quilled Letter M Monogram | Beach Theme. The problem was that she didn’t realize the woman who created the design that she liked so much was someone I consider a friend and have known for many years. I was uncomfortable straight-up…

Paper Quilled Scrollwork Hearse

Paper Quilled Scrollwork Hearse

This Paper Quilled Scrollwork Hearse was commissioned as a gift for a Mortician-in-Training. I was really excited to create this; my only regret being that I didn’t have more time to enhance the design. I could definitely see how lovely this would have been with…

Quilled Letter H Monogram | Blue Scrollwork

Quilled Letter H Monogram | Blue Scrollwork

This is the third and last Quilled Letter H Monogram | Blue Scrollwork of the year. I kind of feel like these have been a fool’s errand and taken up precious time, but I have an obsessive compulsive need to have a happy customer. I’m…

Scrollwork Seal Point Fat Cat | Limited Edition 9×9

Scrollwork Seal Point Fat Cat | Limited Edition 9×9

The Scrollwork Seal Point Fat Cat is a limited edition item on my Etsy shop. I made it on a whim for a customer that wanted a different frame than normal. In order to fill the 9″ x 9″ frame, I had to increase the…

Quilled Custom Blended Siamese

Quilled Custom Blended Siamese

Making this Quilled Custom Blended Siamese was a challenge because if any of you have tried your hand at paper art, blending custom “colors” is much more difficult with paper than with paint. With paper it’s a matter of giving the illusion of blended shades.…

Custom White & Gray Scrollwork Cat

Custom White & Gray Scrollwork Cat

This Custom White & Gray Scrollwork Cat was a piece I made recently for a repeat customer. She already had a scrollwork cat and wanted a commemorative piece for the latest addition to her family. I always love custom cats because I get to try…

Light & Dark Quilled Letter H Monogram

Light & Dark Quilled Letter H Monogram

This Light & Dark Quilled Letter H Monogram came about because I was trying to create a monogram for a customer, but once I started it, it took me off on a tangent that I knew the customer wasn’t looking for. Instead of scrapping the…

Quilled Scrollwork Snowman Scene

Quilled Scrollwork Snowman Scene

I might be wrong, but I don’t think I’ve ever made an actual Christmas themed quilling before. Maybe that’s why when my customer changed her mind from a Scrollwork Red Fox to a Quilled Snowman Scene, I was actually kind of glad! Not only did…

Quilled TMNT Tribute Collage

Quilled TMNT Tribute Collage

This Quilled TMNT Tribute Collage started out as a monogram request, but once I started brainstorming for design ideas, I realized that it would be better as a tribute collage than monogram. In case you’re not as old as I am, TMNT stands for “Teenage…

Teakwood-Look Scrollwork Fat Cat

Teakwood-Look Scrollwork Fat Cat

I created this Teakwood-Look Scrollwork Fat Cat after a marathon of trying to please a repeat customer. I’m not sure I’ve ever made as many cats in a row just to find one that someone likes. Moral of the story: try, try, again, for they…

Quilled Letter O Monogram | Blue & Beige

Quilled Letter O Monogram | Blue & Beige

This lovely Quilled Letter O Monogram | Blue & Beige is the first monogram I’ve made for many years. Seriously! I think the last complete monogram I created was for the book that was published in 2018. It was nice to have the opportunity to…

Quilled Letter H Monogram | Extreme Blue Scrollwork

Quilled Letter H Monogram | Extreme Blue Scrollwork

As part of the Christmas rush this year I was commissioned to create this Quilled Letter H Monogram | Extreme Blue Scrollwork piece. It is 8″ x 10″ and inside an 11″ x 14″ frame. I personally think it is absolutely stunning, but my client…
