When I was in fifth grade, my teacher told the class she was going to teach us how to quill as part of our art curriculum. I had no idea what quilling was, but I was a little nervous because I’m not artistic. We soon learned that quilling involved rolling very thin strips of paper to make designs, and I soon learned that I loved it. Although I didn’t continue quilling after the school year was over, I always remembered how much I enjoyed it.
A few years ago, I was going through a stressful time, and I searched for something that would help me relax. When I came across an article that mentioned quilling, I thought about how much I had enjoyed it all those years ago. I bought some supplies, but I was worried that I wouldn’t remember how to quill. To my surprise, it all came right back to me. I enjoy this craft so much, and I have enjoyed sharing the results with friends and family.
Fifth grade was a long time ago, but this lesson will stay with me forever.
How do you relax? I’d love to hear about it!
