Quilling in Peacock Colours

Before I talk about my quilling, I want to say how awesome it is to wake up on a snowy day to find my sidewalk, and part of my driveway (not all because my car was in the way), cleared of snow!  Oh, and the mean old snowplow had been by - that was done too!  Wonderful neighbour!  

I recently had a request for three quilled ornaments to be done in peacock colours.  Cool, eh!!  
So, I sent a pic of colours I thought might work....


People know what they want, and here's the end result.  


I can't take the credit for these awesome colour combos.  I will say though, that I love the way the turned out!


The bottom of the ornaments - looking kinda funky!


That's all for today - now off to the market.


Happy Crafting

Christmas Ornaments


I'm guessing by now you know my passion for quilling. If you're new to my blog, welcome!

Recently, I was at the Holiday Market sale in the wonderful city of Georgetown.  For me, it's not just about selling my crafts.  Connecting with people, and seeing their eyes light up when they first look at my ornaments - it's heartwarming.


As much as I love the combination of greens, reds and white, I've had a jolly god time testing out 'new' colours.



Christmas should be fun, filled with anticipation...and funky colours - yes!!



Why not blue and green.  The colours look so fresh!



Pretty pinks, and lilac. Love love love!



Gorgeous purples, and perhaps some greys too!



Back to the playful shades of orange.  
Hmm, one of these things is not like the other (a throw-back to Sesame Street).  Doesn't it just pop with the collar of silver and red glimmer paper! (two thumbs up for Stampin' Up! for your fabulous glimmer paper)


Thank you for stopping by.  I leave you with this....


Christmas waves a magic wand over this world, 
and behold, 
everything is softer and more beautiful.
