I’m Back!

  • Posted on July 28, 2011 at 8:49 PM

I have been missing in action from here for quite a while for numerous reasons but I won’t bore you with those :)

Since the Sydney Craft and Quilt Fair in June which was such a fantastic week, I have been looking into the logistics and possibilities of doing further craft fairs. While the bigger ones are out for logistical reasons, smaller ones are possible. Do you know of any you would like me to exhibit at? Are you organising one? Due to the fact I have paper products, an inside venue would be preferable. Also, due to the logistical nightmare of owning only one car and having young children, it would need to be in Sydney!

I am also in the process of organising quilling classes from my home. What days and times would suit people the most? Would anyone be interested in a children’s class? How much would you pay for a 2 hour class?

Thank you for reading and I look forward to hearing your ideas. You can either leave a comment below or contact me via the Contact page.

Bamboo Paper Bead Roller Kits

Bamboo Paper Bead Roller Kits

I am very excited to announce a product that I will be stocking in my supplies range and I am the only one in Australia with them.

Through Janice Mae, I am now stocking the paper bead rollers with paper strips to make beads. These bamboo paper bead rollers are made in The Philippines, her homeland, where her sister has helped many families who now make these rollers and beads. Janice also pledges school supplies to underprivileged Filipino children.

These rollers make creating paper beads so easy but not only that, they are beautifully decorated with paper beads! You get consistent sized holes and the paper is held between the bamboo pieces so it doesn’t slip.

These will be in my online store after the Craft Fair where they will be displaying them and have them available for purchase. If you are interested in classes using these rollers to make beautiful, versatile paper beads to create stunning, unique jewellery, please contact me!

Happy New Year

Happy New Year to everyone out there! It is a little belated, I know.

It’s been a bit quiet on the creating front so far this year. The girls have been doing their craft kits from Santa as well as some science experiments but we have taken what good weather we have had to visit my parents who live near a beach. :) We’ve also had Amy’s birthday since Christmas and Sophie’s is next week. Not good timing with two January birthdays!!

While I may not have been creating much so far, I have been doing some ground work organising to sell quilling supplies as well as getting organised for 2 craft fairs I will be at. I am also looking into a regular artisan market and hopefully also running some classes. I will have to get myself creating in the next week though for 2 swaps I am in; one is for Valentine’s Day cards and another for Painted Paper Beads.

It should be a busy and exciting year ahead!

The girls’ quilling

  • Posted on August 24, 2010 at 8:59 PM

Back in June I gave the girls – aged 6 and 4 – their first quilling lesson. They had been on at me for ages to do it but I finally got to do it. It was great! They used a slotted tool to make a fish following a pattern and I am really proud of their efforts.

Amy's Quilling Aged 6

Sophie's Quilling Aged 4

It was interesting to see how differently they worked. Sophie (4) worked a lot tighter than Amy (6), thus producing a smaller fish.

One of the things I would like to do is children’s craft classes, including quilling. Do you think your children would be interested in quilling and craft classes?
