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

Day 1 - The very beginning of blogging for MirthfulMary Creations. I'm very excited! I've just started sharing my love of creating with people outside of my immediate family and friends. I created a shop on the Etsy web, which I just love by the way, and have had a couple of sales. I find that I've been spending every waking moment thinking of something new to create or trying to put something I can see into a card. Even driving around town, with all of the trees and flowers blooming, I want to put that beauty into a card! My family is extremely supportive (and my best friend Brenda too!) and for the time being I am going from their advice. Hopefully, as new people find me, I can get some new prospective on my shop and learn to sell what I have created. So if you are new to MirthfulMary Creations, please let me know you are there and what you think of my work.
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!
