Maude White's Paper Art

For those of us who love to work and play with paper; here is a special treat. One of my quilling. friends (Marianne Fassett) sent me a link to this web site. the artist's name is Maude White. She doesn't quill but what she does is outstanding. She hand cuts her designs using a surgical knife; I thought quilling was time consuming! Be sure to visit her web site; some of her work will blow you away. In the meantime here are just a few of my favorites.

It just keeps growing and growing . . .

 We are very excited here at Whimsiquills; these are pictures of our new distribution center which is run by our son, Stephen, in Massachsetts. When we first started selling quilling supplies we sold only Lake City papers with the encouragement of Malinda Johnston (You can read the long version of our story by clicking on the two links.) My "inventory" at that time fit on backs of two doors. but then we started to grow. Our inventory spilled over into and finally took over the basement of our home. We expanded inventory to include kits and tools from Quilled Creations, Lake City ad of course the kits I designed for our friends over at Paplin Products. We were bursting at the seams. A few weeks ago our son Stephen came up with the brilliant idea of warehousing the inventory. He has taken over the fullfilment and shipping of the orders leaving me to do the less physical side of the business; the blog, web site etc. Thank goodness, because four days after the move I fell and broke my collarbone and am looking at a lenthly rehab. But here are the pictures of Whimsiquills new digs!
