Shop Update

I've had some really, really late nights lately - as a result of heat, coffee late in the day (bummer), and having a great deal on my mind. I'm gearing up to take a couple of weekends away to the ocean in July, which will be so revitalizing. A few nights here and there I've been up painting - which is a rare thing for me.

The fox and hedgehog are new - and the reshoot of the mouse looks really cute. I'm quite pleased with it.

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

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 …
