My boyfriend booked a class at Tinkle Art Room for me as a surprise when he was away, and to be honest I didn’t quite know what to expect. The idea of how one can use plain white clay to make these miniature plates of food baffled me, and I was looking forward to figuring that out.
Sometime ago, I was inspired by a DIY wall clock project I came across on pinterest. The writer reassured that it was really simple, so I thought — why not?
During the Christmas season, a good friend asked if I’d like to help build a carousel fair box set she bought. I said, “sure!”, because I love Christmas, carousels, making stuff, and how difficult can assembling be, right? Boy, were we wrong.
I’ve never heard of paper quilling before this – in fact, when my partner planned this as a surprise for me and when I arrived at the venue, I was thinking “what is this??”. And so I started with a little bit of skepticism but ended it with so much engagement and enthusiasm and continued building on my piece even after heading home.
