Little Pig, Little Pig, Let Me In

There are a lot of hairs on her chinny chin chin. I just listed this sweet little pig in my Etsy Shop. I've been adoring pigs lately. I just love them. The fatter and rounder and pinker the better.

This little piggie isn't the only thing that's bright pink in my neck of the woods. Yesterday was scalding hot and I took to the cool waters of Lake Champlain for some relief. I managed to cover almost everywhere with sunblock - but missed my back. I have a horrible, terrible sunburn. I feel like a dog with a toothache - grumbly and sore and whimpering. I'm on a mission to find some really awesome aloe.

I have been taking a short break from art to do some recovery and reading and relaxing and swimming. All of these things are dearly important. I have a four-day weekend coming up and will be spending some serious time working on new designs for my needle felt and watercolor shop.

Don't forget to sign up for my GIVEAWAY in the post beneath this one!!!!

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 …
