Plumpies and Heycorns Oh My!

I've been hard at work redesigning my business vision. I've planned, primped, ordered supplies, and stabbed into creation my new line of needle-felted creatures known as Plumpies. They fit right in the palm of your hand, are fat (of course), and ridiculously cute. I will be posting the whole lot of them online in the coming weeks. As I build inventory, I hope to sell them on Esty and at a local toystore called Jamie Two-Coats that specializes in Waldorf inspired, handmade toys.

It's been a while since I've opened my tin of watercolors, and hopefully will get back to those again someday soon. Right now, I'm loving creating animals in 3D.

I will post a family photo of the first round of Plumpies this week. I'm so excited!

Over time, my interests focused on needle felting and creating small friends that make me smile and bring joy to others. I’ve had my Woolnimals needle felting business for nearly a decade and it has been a huge source of happiness and relaxation for me.
Shortly before I left college, I changed my major from English to Eco-Psychology. I began studying the connections between humans and the natural world. My studies focused on the understanding that direct experiences with wilderness and the natural world foster compassion and a sense of place. In turn, this sense of belonging fosters stewardship for the natural world. When we feel that we’re an important part of something, we tend to take care of it. We come to …
