My mom is an artist, an incredibly talented one. She is also one of my favorite people in the world, so forgive me if I go on and on about how remarkable she is. Her particular medium is paper. She does what is called quilling, also known as paper filigree. This art is rare and simply amazing, you can check out mom’s stuff at http://www.whimsiquills.com/servlet/StoreFront.
So mom asked me if I could make a little box with a recessed lid that she could put quilling on. This is the first of what will hopefully become many. I can’t wait to bring it to her to see what she does with it!
