My name is Kirilka Simeonova.
I am from Blagoevgrad, Bulgaria. I am 52 years old.
About 2 years ago i lost my job because of the recession and I had plenty of free time and nothing to do.
One day browsing the internet I saw someone posted a picture of beautiful handmade paper flowers.
Excited and inspired, that same day I bought one roll of Cartotecnica Rossi magical paper.
I am still happy and satisfied with the quality of Cartotecnica Rossi papers, which is why I never felt the need to buy or search for different products.
The first color of paper I got was pink, and so was my first flower: a Rose. It felt like this was what I was meant to do all of my life.
By collecting all kinds of flowers from my garden, I was able to replicate the images i saw.
Shortly after, orders came: flower baskets, bouquets, special occasions gifts and weddings. With my creations being seen on my Facebook Page, Paper Flowers by Kirilka, i was invited to conduct workshops in many of the biggest cities in Bulgaria, like Sofia and Plovdiv. I am so happy and blessed to still learn every day and spread everywhere i go the beauty of this art.
Hopefully in the future, i will be able to make my dream come true, which is to own a shop/studio where i can work on bigger projects and host my own workshops.
