German Quilling on Display

Recently I heard from a quilling pal, Karren Doll Tolliver, who lives in Germany for part of the year. She and a friend came upon this department store window in Munich and sent me images... how cool to see rolled paper on such a grand scale!


I can only imagine the work that went into the design and construction, and wish I could give credit to the creator, but unfortunately we're not even sure which store it was... possibly Kaufhof.


Karren said, "The trees looked like they were made out of posterboard strips about six inches wide. What a display!"

And speaking of displays...


I'd like to welcome new sponsor, ljlh designs. You might remember the interview I did with owner/paper artist Libby Hampel... her classy and colorful jewelry designs never fail to impress.

By the way, there's still a spot for your ad to be displayed this month, as well as a very nice incentive for first-time advertisers... see details here.

Have an enjoyable holiday weekend and remember, this week's two giveaways are going on now if you haven't had a chance to enter yet - count 'em - one, two!

This is the kind of marvelous window display that gets people talking. I wish more commercial establishments here would promote art and design skills this way.
