We had this sent overseas as a gift and we were told it was beautiful! Not only that, it was sent with special care and made it undamaged. I highly recommend these ornaments to anyone who wants something special on their tree or in there home!

This was a dirty Santa Ornament gift. No one had ever seen quilled work before. They got 'stolen" several time. Big success. Beautiful
Snowflakes aren't just for Christmas
After I sold my house and no longer had the homeowner upkeep chores hanging over my head when I came home from my day job, I found myself very bored and just doing a lot of reading.
I had a few friends who had started Etsy shops and were having a blast making and selling their items all over the world. I've always been a crafty/artsy person and decided to come up with something unique that not many people were selling at the time.....Quilling. It was a very popular craft back in the 70's/80's, but not many shops were doing it on Etsy. I sat down and created several different snowflake designs and to help set my shop apart from the few other shops selling quilling, I came up with unique packaging that turned my creations into already gift-wrapped presentations for my buyers.
It's been so exciting watching my shop grow each year and sending my snowflakes all over the world....Australia, Japan, Canada, New Zealand, Great Britain, Hong Kong, Sweden, Belgium to name a few, and my favorite was Slovania (because I had no idea where that was at). I've also enjoyed the challenges my customers have presented me with, such as creating a monogrammed snowflake or putting a company logo (Jockey International) in the middle of a snowflake. My designs have been used as props in Jockey International and Sundance's holiday catalogs. I've also been contracted to author the quilling section of a book which was published in September 2013. Check it out on Amazon: Snowflakes, Sunbursts and Stars (Fold, Cut, and Curl).
Designer, Creator, Photographer, Shipper
I love all things creative and am in my element when I'm using my hands and imagination just creating. I also love nature and all animals and am blessed to have three dogs and a green-cheeked conure who hang out with me while I make my snowflakes.
I have always had a passion for creating things since I was young from crocheting/knitting, cross-stitching, quilting, cake decorating, just to name a few, and of course--Quilling.
I've tried to create a unique gift giving item here that requires nothing from you except the recipient's name and yours on the matching gift tag. My snowflakes are handmade entirely by me, taking several hours to complete. They come beautifully packaged in either a gift box with matching ribbon and gift tag or round 2 piece tin container lined with cardstock and topped with a matching gift label on the lid.
In our busy, time-crunched world....what could be better than a unique, one-of-a-kind, inexpensive gift ready for giving? All you need to do is fill out the gifttag....let me do the rest!
Hope you enjoy,
