Making Time

Prior to this past week, I have never felt starved for time to create. I have never had moments where my fingers actually itched to be creating, but my energy is so low that I cannot bring myself to do it.

This week has been very, very hard and last night I finally made a plumpy that I've been turning around and around in my imagination for a while. He is so lovely and will be listed on Monday. I'm hoping for some solid, peaceful sleep this weekend. I'm sending thoughts and prayers out into the universe in hope that everything works out and everyone in my life finds peace and joy.

I think he's one of my favorite creations ever...and he's for sale in my shop!

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 …
