Oh Me, Oh My

I watched five movies in a row on Saturday, which was, by the way, one of the most beautiful days of the year so far, and needle felted. I am almost done with the ten lions I started last week. I'm adding the eyes and noses to ten mini koalas today and will start up a batch of rainbow acorns for the craft fair!

My inventory list for the craft fair includes about 200 plumpies and mini plumpies. It's an unreasonable amount of work, but until it starts to feel like a burden, I'm keeping that amount as my target. The good thing about having that many plumpies is that if I don't sell them all, I'll have a good inventory for my Etsy shop in May. I can then start focusing on my more artistic sculptures and ventures into the wool world.

I keep thinking that I should be photo-documenting this process, just for kicks, but I'm so busy I forget to take out the camera. I cleaned my studio yesterday and it looks very pretty, so now is my chance. :)

Keep smiling!

Thar He Blows!

Sometimes you just need a whale made out of wool. I know I do. I almost can't stand to sell this whale because I've been trying to perfect the shape for months. I finally got him looking how I want him to look...but I can't tell you how many whale-esque cat toys there are floating around my house. I think he's one of my favorite creations ever...and he's for sale in my shop!

On Wool and the Future of Woolnimals

I love animals. The greatest moments in my life involve animals. In fact, there isn’t a fond memory that I have that doesn’t somehow include animals or the natural world.
It’s not surprising that my hobbies and artistic pursuits have always involved the animal world as well. 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 …
