About Quilling by Kath
Natasha had searched everywhere to find the perfect gift for her husband. She wanted something unique that showed her love and appreciation to her partner and their five children. She wanted something so special that when he looked at it, it instantly put a smile on his face and reminded him just why their family was so important. Everything that she considered for a gift wasn’t right; nothing came close to what she thought she was looking for - not personalised, not meaningful, and certainly not unique. (How can something that’s been mass-manufactured a billion times over be unique?)
Natasha emailed me and asked if I could help her create a special quilled art wall piece for her husband. Of course, it was an instant “Yes!”. There’s nothing I love more than my clients to create something unique and of significance to them. Natasha had a few ideas of what she wanted; some colour ideas, some text and a nod to a more traditional quilling style. After I had a feel for what she was after, I emailed her some samples of coloured quilling papers that I felt would be perfect for her design, along with a sketch of my vision of what she wanted. Perfect!
Natasha’s problem was solved. She now had the perfect handmade gift, made even better in the knowledge that there was nothing else out there like it. I kept Natasha updated (and excited!) with photos during the making of her piece, and she felt confident throughout the process that her piece was being made on time and to my high-quality standards.
Natasha was so excited when her finished quilled piece arrived to her after travelling many kilometres across the country and understandably, she couldn’t wait to give it to her husband. A few days later, I received the most beautiful email.
“Thanks so much Kath! It’s arrived perfectly… it looks amazing. You took my vague ideas and turned them into something fabulous that we will both treasure… Thank you for making it all so easy.”
I’d helped bring her gift to life – a unique, personalised, handcrafted paper quilled wall piece for someone – just like you - who appreciates art that’s a little out of the ordinary.
