Quilling, Scrapbooks, and eBay

Once upon a time a long while ago I use to sell my scrapbooking sets on eBay under the sellers ID of DeeQuill. I did this for a number of reasons.
One it permitted my creative side to take hold, I was able to create designs that I liked and was not commissioned to make.

Second back in 2002 quilling was a rare commodity on eBay, this is way before it was flooded with quilling “knock-offs”. It was refreshing to be able to spread the word on quilling to a whole new market. Many had never heard or seen this art form, being amazed what strips of paper could produce. And for me it was fairly profitable, not a terrible side effect!

I lost count of the number I sold; it was well into the hundreds.
All these memories were brought back today when I ran across the disc of the pictures from the eBay auctions.

Hope you enjoyed walking down memory lane with me!

Quilling Books


I would surmise the “word” has gotten out about quilling due to the number of new releases from publishers. It’s about time! In the past new releases were far and few between, sometimes years before a new book would be published.

Custom Quilling Supplies is to receive two new books in the next weeks, then another two books will be released shortly after. Also be on the look out for a new book by our favorite floral punch artist. Yes, Custom Quilling has all these and more on pre-order.The main problem is the length of time between notification of the new releases and the actual time we have the publications is our hands. We have been anticipating these two books for months now!






NOW IN STOCK!




Here’s another book I think you will enjoy, although it is not totally quilling it is a must have for all you cardmakers! Due in stock soon.




As for the other quilling books due out, I’ll write more about those once a defined publish date is released.

In the meantime make sure to stop by the store:

Loads of new inventory just arrived, including velvet papers!
