Teacher Appreciation Week

Next week at my son's elementary school is Teacher Appreciation Week, this year I've planned ahead and we're ready. I just wanted to share a couple cards that I worked on recently for this occasion and remind you; with school ending in a few weeks make sure you share how much you've appreciated your child's teacher - we've been fortunate this year, my son has an awesome teacher; I'm secretly hoping she'll be promoted up to 2nd grade so he can have her again. Thank you Mrs. Morrow!

Beach Frame

About a month ago a very nice gal who lives here in Memphis contacted me via etsy, she introduced herself and her blog, http://stuffparentsneed.blogspot.com/ and asked me if I'd be interested in participating in her blog giveaway in May - celebrating Memphis in May, of course I would. I love getting feedback on my items. I knew I wanted to create a frame and I wanted it to be general so it could be for a boy or girl; a friend suggested a beach theme so that's what I did. Here is the end result, I covered this round frame (love my circles) with a pale blue dot paper, then quilled the sun, beach ball, shovel and bucket; and added some quilled circles around the frame photo opening just to bring it all together; I can't wait to hear what she has to say about it. And please check out her blog, it's chock full of great information for parents.

Happy Spring! If the pollen blows away I think it will be.

Almost a month has gone by since my last post, a month; I can't believe it. I've been busy working on custom orders and dealing with sinus/allergy issues - I moved to the Memphis Tn area in 1994 to attend Memphis College of Art, after graduation I stayed here and eventually met my husband here and each year my sinus issues get worse, so I've been tired and not blogging.

I've been fortunate to have two large custom orders, one was for an awesome woman named Danna; she ordered 25 dinosaur birthday invites for her son's 3rd birthday. The other order was for a super gal named Margaret Anne, she ordered 15 thank you note cards - she let me use my imagination although I already knew she liked butterflies, birds and the color green. A heartfelt thank you to both for the opportunity to create something that will be unique and hopefully admired. Here is an image of the thank you notecards, if anyone is interested in a set please feel free to contact me at creative@quillynilly.com or through my etsy shop (hit the convo button). Thanks for visiting and have a fabulous evening!
