This is my personal journey as I learn, share my inspirations and enjoy the art of quilling.

Expanding my ideas
I've been searching around a bit to find other crafters in my area. And I have found a group call the North Florida Craft Revolution. Some are even from Jacksonville, which is quite close to me. I'm following their blog for a while in hopes of feeling comfortable enough to join their group. I've also spoken with my granddaughter's preK teacher and for Mother's Day I am going to provide the kids with the means to make a card for their mom. It will get my name out locally and I think it will be a ton of fun to see what these kids come up with when presented all of these paper cut outs! I'll take pictures and post them when it is done.
Have a great weekend and don't forget to check the mirthfulmary.etsy.com page at least once a week - Buy Handmade!
At Valentines 2009 one of my nieces needed a card for her fellow. She didn't want a mushy stuff card. She didn't want a sexually suggestive card. Just something she could write a little note in. When I heard about her situation I decided to create a card for her. She loved it! And so did everyone else that saw it. So it started me thinking and I decided to start designing cards to see if others really were interested in my designs.
So that's it. My sincere desire to help my niece has led me to create an Etsy shop and now my own blog!
