Wrapping Up 2010
The Mable House Christmas Show was a big success! We had record attendance and record sales. It warms my heart to know that in these tough economic times, our visitors chose to purchase beautiful handmade gifts from so many talented local artisans.
I want to thank all of you for a wonderful 2010. Your kind words of encouragement in the comments you leave keep me motivated. I enjoy “meeting” each of you through emails and love to hear how your own quilling projects are progressing. I’ve been truly blessed by the many new friends I’ve made through this blog.
Looking Forward to 2011
More Quilling Patterns. As I mentioned, the Christmas show was great and my captured snowflake was a hit. I couldn’t keep it in stock. I have been asked to make a pattern for this ornament revealing all of my construction secrets and it will be the first of many to be released in 2011.
New Quilling Project Kits.
My good friend Sharon of Studio Foster
(a working art studio located in Hiram, GA) has a Pazzles
cutting machine that can create amazing paper shapes like gift card holders, bag toppers, fancy boxes, etc., that are perfect backdrops for quilled embellishments.
New Quilling Classes.
As we continue to grow at Studio Foster
, I look forward to creating new and exciting projects for our local quillers
. I am also excited about exploring the fusion of quilling with other types of paper art techniques and mediums.
New Year Inspiration
I ran across these words from advice columnist, Ann Landers. I have no idea when they were written, but they still ring true today.
“Let this coming year be better than all the others. Vow to do some of the things you’ve always wanted to do but couldn’t find the time. Call up a forgotten friend. Drop an old grudge, and replace it with some pleasant memories. Vow not to make a promise you don’t think you can keep. Walk tall, and smile more. You’ll look ten years younger. Don’t be afraid to say, ‘I love you’. Say it again. They are the sweetest words in the world.”
I wish you all the best in 2011!
