My name is Ellen and I have always been a creative person involved in several different crafts. Cross stitching, scrap booking, felting, and most recently quilling have occupied my time. I recently moved to Atlanta in 2017 for a corporate day job in the Horticulture industry. I love all things floral and plant related and this is reflected in several pieces in my shop.
As a hobby, I started this shop in the fall of 2013 with great inspiration from my mother. As the most creative person I knew, she could always be counted on to invent an awesome Halloween costume made by hand or just come up with a creative and unique science fair topic. She always allowed my brothers and I to be creative and hung up our drawings and showed them off proudly. So, in her spirit I started this shop with the goal of providing beautiful, innovative and unique handmade paper ornaments to those that appreciate genuine handmade goods. I really hope you take a look at my listings and enjoy my shop!
For those that are not familiar with this style of paper art, Quilling is a type of paper art using strips of paper that are rolled, glued and shaped. I love making flowers, Christmas ornaments, and other unique items. All of my items are dried, and then sealed with a clear spray sealant made for paper goods. This enhances the durability of the pieces, but does not take away from the delicate nature of the art. I advise avoiding water and direct sunlight to prevent melting and fading.
