Wonderful for helping build mindfulness and reduce anxiety. Today, quilling is seeing a resurgence in popularity. It is sometimes used for decorating wedding invitations, for Christmas, birth announcements, greeting cards, Scrapbook pages,and boxes. Quilling can be used to decorate greeting cards, frames, books etc. and one can also create beautiful jewellery sets, key chains, models, hanging decor, vase, embellishments, gift tags, wall art, candle holder, 3d quilled gift box and many more….. Who can learn this art form? Anyone who has the passion to learn any new art form and for kids -   6 years is the best age at which a child can quill. With an adult present to guidethem / a child at the age of 4+ can create all the basic Quilling shapes. It’s an extraordinary activity for kids because it intrigues their creativity and develops their perception of geometric shapes. Let’s now look at the History of quilling: In England, with the appearance of first paper mills around 1495, the establishment of paper manufacturing was significant factor in the development of quill work. Paper, elaborately constructed into design and then gilded, substituted more expensive metal. There are records of French and Italian nuns using the torn edges of gilt-edged Holy books from 1200s - 1600s. These pieces were wrapped around goose quills to create coiled shapes for decoration of reliquaries and holy pictures. They used paper and then gilded or painted the finished work replicating expensive intricacies of wrought iron or carved ivory. This practice of using quills resulted in the craft's name - quilling. Many sources claim that in Europe the ladies of affluence were taught quilling along with the needle work in Edwardian and Victorian times. Special reassesses were made in tea caddies, baskets, portraits, screens and even in furniture sides to allocate the surface for intricate paper coils and shapes. The instructions and templates were published in magazines of the time. The quality of quilling was at its highest standard. These were mostly genteel women in Europe, and particularly in England, where quilling was seen as a proper hobby for young ladies to take up along with needlework. It flourished among the ladies of upper classes who had no need for gainful work and were spared domestic chores. Quilling guild of England makes references to The New Lady's Magazine of 1786: "... it affords an amusement to the female mind capable of the most pleasing and extensive variety; and at the same time, it conduces to fill up a leisure hour with an innocent recreation ..:' Another source, an Edwardian book of household management entitled 'Floral Mosaicon,'provided a reference to Queen Mary and Queen Alexandra purchasing paper pieces. Only those with money could afford to purchase the supplies needed for quilling such as foil, mica or flaked shell, which were often used as backgrounds. Wooden frames were sold for the sole purpose of being decorated with pieces of paper rolled, shaped and glued into patterns.The projects were usually finished by painting or gilding. The ladies were touse quilling to while away their hours in the pursuit of becoming accomplished women, comfortable knowing that in time, an eligible bachelor would likely take them as a wife. Quilling thereby became a means of signalling wealth and leisure time to prospective husbands. Until then they decorated screens, cabinets, frames,tea caddies, cribbage boards, wine coasters, work baskets and work boxes, urns and over time, even furniture. Certainly the craft was popular in the early 1810s (the Regency period), but its popularity waned soon after. In 1875 quilling was reintroduced in Europe by William Bemrose, who produced a kit called 'Mosaicon' that included a handbook on quilling. But by the beginning of 20th century it was only introduced as part of a school craft education. Many European museums hold examples of quilled work, and two major exhibitions of quilling have been held in 1927 in London, one reportedly displaying items quilled presumably by Charles I. The exhibition of 1988 in New York at the Florian-Papp Gallery presented for exhibition and sale some exquisite examples,mostly of European origin. Patricia Caputo also writes extensively on the revival of quilling in America. She has mentioned the American Quilling Guild, surviving suppliers, exhibitions, and overall growing popularity of the craft in 1970s-1980s. The Quilling guild of England is a very popular organisation across Europe and Australia, staging exhibitions and providing classes extensively in both modern and classic styles of quilling. British quilling guild staged festivals of the craft across the country since the 1990s, and hopes to have a permanent display of its archives. The best literary example of quilling as a ladies' pastime was given in Jane Austin's novel Sense and Sensibility. Lucy Steele, attempting to curry favour with the Middletons, in particular with Lady Middleton, creates a filigree work basket for the Middleton's spoilt daughter, Anna-Maria: "Perhaps," continued Elinor, "if I should happen to cut out, I may be of some use to Miss Lucy Steele, in rolling her papers for her; and there is so much still to be done to the basket, that it must be impossible, I think, for her labour singly, to finish it this evening. I should like the work exceedingly, if she would allow me a share in it." But later Austin depicts the filigree basket as a waste of time and money because of its useless fragility. (Sense and Sensibility, Jane Austin, Chapter 23) If you have ever wondered what the Bennet sisters were doing with a number of pieces of rolled paper spread over the table in one scene, fortunately, you will now be in the know! Many examples of quilled art can be found on cabinets and stands, cribbage boards, ladies' purses, a wide range of both pictures and frames, work baskets, tea caddies, coats of arms and wine coasters. Storage boxes, larger than most jewellery boxes with drawers and/or tops that opened, quilled lock boxes, are popular. In recent times, quilling jewellery has become a trend for fashion lovers, as it can be very light and easy to carry on them. Some items were specially designed for quilling, with recessed surfaces. Quilling was also combined or married with other techniques such as  embroidery & painting. Quilling can be found in art galleries in Europe and in the United States, and is an art that is practiced around the world. Difficulty level of this art: Quilling is relatively easy to learn compared to most other crafts, and with the resources available today, it can be learned by almost everyone. Basic quilling techniques can be learned almost anywhere and there are several videos online that teach how to start quilling. There are more exotic styles of quilling that aren't commonly taught, but can be learned through books that teach the specific styles.

A quick guide on renting housing in Luxembourg

Most newcomers and even for some of us living in Luxembourg for a while, the art of renting in Luxembourg is cumbersome and unclear. We thought it would be great to have a quick summary on how renting process works in Luxembourg. Basics to get started: Rental properties in Luxembourg are on high-demand. Luxembourg's resident population, primarily driven by expats, is increasing. The availability of rental properties is not increasing at the same level as the incoming demand. Hence, both the property prices are high and the rental prices are high. The rental pricing is on the same or similar range of renting in Paris or London. What does it mean to you? It means, you need to start early looking for a property to rent. It takes few months to finalise the rental process unless you get lucky. Where do people rent? Most people working in Luxembourg rent within the Luxembourg country. However, if you're an EU citizen, you also have the option of renting and living in border areas such as Trier (Germany), Arlon (Belgium), and Metz/Thionville (France). A number of people commute across the borders to work in Luxembourg and live in other countries. If you're a non-EU citizen, your Luxembourg visa does not permit you to live in other countries - you're required to live in Luxembourg country. What are the prices like? Prices depend obviously on the size of the property, location and type of apartment and facilities. So, make your own decision on what you're renting. In general, a ball-park figure in Luxembourg city: Single room - EUR 800 - EUR 1100 Studio - EUR 1000-EUR 1300 One bed room apartment - EUR 1500-EUR 1800 Two bed room apartment - EUR 1750 - EUR 2100 Three bed room apartment / Houses - above EUR 2500 What will you be paying for? The general rents and expenses on renting are the following: - Rental deposit (2-3 months is standard) - Basic Rent - Maintanence costs (this usually includes general cleaning and maintainence of common areas, and includes/excludes garbage maintenance) - Electricity costs (usually not included in the rent) - Water costs (on-top or included within the rental price. It depends) - Internet + telephone costs (not included in the rent) - You're required to take insurance for the apartment (few hundred EUR a year) - Agency fee. If the property is with an agency, then you also pay the agency fee (agency fee is bourne by the tenant. It is usually 1-full month of basic rent, not including maintenance and other costs, + VAT). In cases where the current tenant suggests someone to the rental agency, the agency fee is half-a-month rent + VAT. About agencies: Majority number of rental properties in Luxembourg is managed by agencies. Whilst there are house owners who are renting the properties without agencies, this tends to be rather a smaller offering. Most properties are managed by agencies and the agency fee is bourne by the tentant. As mentioned above, agency fee is typically one month basic rent + VAT. If you've been referred by the current tentant to the agent, then it is usually half-a-month rent + VAT. It is normal and common to take from agency managed rental properties in Luxembourg. Do follow the process of renting though. What's the renting process? 1. Find a property from online sites, your company housing forums, and friends' references. We recommend to start with our community and online platform (post what you're looking for and scan the current offers) (scan the current offers) You can also look up in and Luxembourg Expats Premium members ( If you're looking for help to put us with some agents who can look for a property for you, write to us here: or email on (we will place you in touch with agents we refer). 2. Once you find the property, call-up and discuss, and organize a quick visit. Most good properties are rented within days, so you need to make a quick decision. It is not common to be able to rent a property if you've still not arrived in town. Some people who are coming from far away countries such as India, it can be helpful to have a trusted agent. Do check with your employer if they are providing relocation assistance and the agent can find a place for you. It is common to come and take-up a temporary Airbnb or hotel accomodation and look for a permanent rental property. 3. Once you decide on the rental property, following is the general process of renting: - you confirm that you're interested in taking the property - they will require your employment contract, passport copy and visa/work permit, and also three months of salary slips. - Most house-owners/agencies prefer CDI (unlimited) contract. CDD (Limited) from EU institutions are usually accepted. CDD from non-EU institutions might face challenges and hence might maker your search harder. - Once the agency/house owner confirms accepting you as a tenant, they will send you a rental contract. The rental contract will be in French (only French is legally valid). Agencies might provide you with an unofficial English translation but you can do this yourself with or - The contract usually cannot be quit in the middle. Yearly or three year contracts are possible. If you need to quit the contract in between, it is generally not possible by both parties, unless mutually agreed. It is however common to have what is called as "Diplomat cluase". With a Diplomat Clause, in case, you're leaving the country, then you can provide a three months notice. It is however common that the house owner accepts a replacement if you need to change in-between. Note however that the house owner might not accept any replacement but someone who's equally as good as you and having a CDI. - Once you sign-the contract, the first month rent and 3 months of deposit (or an agreed deposit) is transferred to the given bank account. Rental deposits via bank transfer or bank deposit: Rental Deposit can be done via bank transfer to the owner's account or can be done via bank deposit (most banks offer housing deposits including BIL, BCEE, ING). The deposits are held on your name but will be released only after the agreement of the land-lord. There is not much of a difference whether you transfer or hold it in deposit except that the house-owner cannot use your deposit. Otherwise, when the house owner decides a certain amount to be deducted, holding a bank deposit is as good as a bank transfer. Don't dos in renting - Do not pay money without signing contract. If anyone asks to transfer money to reserve the property, this is not the norm and is likely to be a scam. - Behave as a good tenant. Keep the flat proper, do not make unncesssary troubles to neighbours including party noise. Word of mouth travels around the small country and might find it difficult renting properties in the future. - Remember you cannot quit in-between. Most landlords accept replacement if you find a satisfactory replacement that is acceptable to the landlord. So take your commitment seriously and do not act erratically. Renting a property in Luxembourg might take 2-3months and hence always good to start early. Living far away from your work place requires commuting and also lack of social life. So it's a compromise you've to make based on whether you're single or have a family and whether you can drive or will depend on public transport. This is a quick-guide and not an extensive guide.

How to ship anything to or from Luxembourg

How to ship anything to or from Luxembourg From entire households to smaller boxes and parcels, find out how to move your stuff overseas or across Europe     SPONSORED Whether you're planning a move to Luxembourg from overseas or need to move your stuff across Europe, unraveling the ins and outs of international shipping can be tricky, not to mention costly if you don't do it right.Logistics company Eurosender has successfully helped people ship everything from entire households to beloved musical instruments by land and sea, from door to door. Here they outline how to ship anything to or from Luxembourg while offering up some important tips on how to make your move as smooth as possible. Decide which items will come with you First things first: Nail down dimensions. If you're moving take stock of all of your personal belongings and household items to determine what is essential and what is replaceable then get out your tape measure!As you're deciding what stays and goes, factor in the cost of buying certain items in Luxembourg, where electronics and clothes tend to be on the pricier side, versus the cost of shipping them.  Shipping, freight, or ground transport: choose the right service for you   Once you know what you want to ship abroad and how much space you need -- maybe you can’t part with your beloved bedroom set, or on the contrary, want to send just a few boxes of clothes or books -- it'll be easier to choose the right shipping service. The most important things is to ensure that your package does not exceed the weight and dimension restrictions for your type of shipment. If you exceed the weight limit, there's a chance your package may not reach its final destination.  Standard shippingIf you're traveling light and just want to send a few boxes or suitcases, standard shipping (roughly 10 boxes max) is the way to go. You should get your things in 5-7 working days or if you opt for express shipping 24 hours (in Europe) or 48 hours (global).Standard shipping dimensions are as follows:Weight up to 30 kgMaximum length of 175 cmLength (in cm) + 2x width (in cm) + 2x height (in cm) < 300 cm (length plus two times width plus two times height should be less than 300 cm or 3 m altogether)Freight shipping  If you’ll be moving bulkier household items such as furniture or oversized oddly shaped items, you’ll need to send your belongings via freight transport on palettes.When choosing this option you'll need to be able to provide the exact dimensions length, width, and height (in cm) and weight (in kg) to your carrier.Larger items can be sent individually but if items weigh more than 50 kilograms, they'll need to be placed on a non-skid, sturdy pallet for easier handling (see packing tips below).  Ground transport  Anyone who plans to move the majority of their home or belongings from within Europe to the Luxemburg can do so via van delivery service in Europe, which can be used for moving any type of large shipment from a motorcycle to a few boxes.If you need to transport a lot of boxes or larger items, this can be the most cost-effective option, because you don't pay for each package individually (and you do not necessarily need to follow the packing guidelines, as you would with individual shipments sent through standard or any other type of service).Delivery time for dedicated vehicles throughout Europe is an estimated 24-48 hours. Van sizes are:Box van: 465 x 165 x 180 cm or 13 cubic meters and 800 kg capacityCurtain-side van: 410 x 210x 230cm or 19 cubic meters and 1100 kg capacity Pack it up like a pro Proper packing helps to better ensure that your shipment arrives safe and sound without any issues along the way: Standard shipment (overseas move) Make sure to protect the wheels and handles on the suitcase, as these are the most sensitive parts. Write your contact details on the box or suitcase as well, to be on the safe side.Wrapping suitcases is highly suggested When you wrap your suitcase, couriers will stick a label to the suitcase onto the suitcase. With fabric suitcases, it can easily fall off.All items other need to be packed into a cardboard box that is free of holes, tears or dents; something moisture-resistant with double cardboard walls is the best choice.When packing, fill the box with internal cushioning; make sure the items inside the box do not directly touch the box. When sealing the box, wrap it with duct tape and ensure it is sealed on all sides.You should evenly apply at least three strips of packing tape, at least 5 cm wide, across all flaps and seams, top and bottom.Freight or container shipment (overseas move)  If your items are too bulky for standard shipping, you'll need to send them via freight. Larger items can be sent individually in a box (apply the same rules for packing) but items weighing more than 50 kilograms should be placed on a non-skid, sturdy pallet for easier handling. Your pallet may be handled multiple times. To prevent damage, make sure to: Use cushioning material and rigid carton material.Secure and block with braces larger items. Items with uncommon shapes that cannot be boxed or items that are prone to slide.Use load-protector trays, bands and stretch wrap film to protect the shipment. An additional ‘tamper-tape’ can be wrapped around the load to ensure nobody interferes with the parcel.If you notice a certain box is heavy, be sure to put on a warning label so the person lifting it is aware.Dedicated vehicle transport across Europe  When using a van, make sure to prepare all your packages on the ground floor when the van arrives. Extra assistance may cost an added fee though the driver typically comes with the price. Not all your items need to be packed for van services. However, fragile items should be packed. Make sure to pack your items following best packing practices laid out above, using sturdy boxes that are well labeled, and padding your shipments.   Insuring your items   No matter what you plan to ship, getting insurance is a must for financial protection in the unlikely event of loss or damage to your shipment. Many logistics companies will insure all items and additional insurance can be bought via their services.If you end up filing a claim, it’s important to note that the declared value of the package, or the shipping insurance value, is the maximum coverage. You will only be reimbursed when the provider or carrier conducts an investigation and sets the value of the losses.  Which kind of insurance will depend on which shipping service you use:Standard shipping: if you plan to ship your items, you will need to buy insurance for each package. You can normally purchase the insurance through your logistics provider or the shipment company. Freight shipping: Freight shipments are insured according to the provisions of the Convention on the Contract for the International Carriage of Goods by Road (CMR Convention). Your insurance will apply to the entire package, and you can purchase it through a third-party company, a logistics provider or the carrier.    Get a price calculation Shipping costs will vary depending on a variety of factors, from package measurements, shipment type, weight, location, and more. Once you've determined these variables, then a carrier can calculate a price on your shipment. Do you need to ship something to or from Luxembourg  from overseas or across Europe?

Is it time to treat sugar like smoking & alchocol?

Initially, people didn’t know that cigarettes were bad for their health. Because people didn’t feel pain or sickness after smoking just a few cigarettes, no one suspected tobacco of inflicting any hazardous effects on the body and so it took years for doctors to associate cigarettes with bad lungs and cancer.  People loved cigarettes because it made them calm and relieved stress, and many doctors promoted its use for these reasons. Years later cigarette smokers have faced the harmful truths of smoking, but many are unable to quit because of the addictive nature of nicotine.  Sugars may come in the innocent form of Little Debby cakes and gummy bears, but this sweet substance can be every bit as poisonous as smoking cigarettes. Sugar is everywhere and is nearly impossible to avoid. Even if you try to avoid the obvious foods such as candy, chocolate, cake, and brownies, you will still find hidden sugars in our regular foods such as smoothies, yogurt, bread, and ketchup.   According to a study abou 35 million deaths occur worldwide each year, from diseases like diabetes, heart disease and cancer, an even greater burden on public health than infectious diseases. Sugar can lead to obesity which causes 17 million deaths per year. Click here to read more about suagr and alternatives that can be used to avoid it. Today our society has realized the harmful effects of cigarettes, but we have yet to realize the harmful effects of sugar. We see ourselves making the same mistake with sugar as we did with cigarettes. Can we stop this killer before it’s too late?
