How my Quilling journey started

Hi all,
Firstly I thank everyone of you who have taken time to visit my blog and read my posts. 

I am Aparna Balakrishnan , a home maker and a mother of a lovely little boy. 
Though I am an MCA post graduate and a university rank holder, I have turned as a Quiller/Artist/jewelry designer owning a page called shequills in face book.

Quilling is a paper art where you roll and curl paper strips with a specially designed quilling /slotted needle to bring various shapes and patterns to create many beautiful quilled pieces.
You can create beautiful cards , jewelries , fridge magnets , candle holders , key chains , frames and many more using this art. As everyone say sky is the limit for your creativity.
Creative thoughts have no boundaries isn't it?

Coming back to how I started it....
I saw quilling art for the first time when one of my sisters gave me a quilled card that she bought in a sale happened inside her office premises. I didn't even know the name of the art when I saw that day. Later on I surfed the net during my free hours, skipping my noon nap and slowly found the art very interesting and just felt to give it a try and that is how I started to quill. As days passed by, I became familiar with the basic shapes, techniques and patterns and spent most of my time quilling strips ,when I was carrying my son . later on , as months rolled and a year scrolled , when I realized I had little space to spend on my craft , I took the art very seriously and started my page shequills in FB to showcase my handmade quilled work on dec 30th 2013.
