Slow Down

I'm overwhelmed by the amount of comments on my Owl Giveaway! Thank you for all of your lovely feedback - it makes me smile every day.

I have been moving really, really slowly lately. My husband is having some stomach issues and we've been managing that as well as house sitting for a friend. I didn't realize how tired I was until I stopped going, and then I just slept and slept. I'm hoping to re-energize at some point and get going with needle felting again (I'm in the middle of a lovely Possum!) but I'm giving myself this little break and trying not to feel bad about it

I have been painting a bit. I'm still gearing up to open my new sister shop Tickle Me Pig - and hope to have that up and running by September at the latest. I'm having a blast painting pigs and lions and polar bears and realizing that Hey, maybe I AM good at illustration! Who knew?

I hope all of you dears are having wonderful summers! The Giveaway ends this weekend - and I can't wait to delight one of you with a little owl friend. Keep Smiling!

  3. Oh yes, napping is on the schedule for sure! :)

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 …
