Vacation & Internet Break

(I'm yawning as I write this...)

I'm taking a little vacation to work on some crafts, tidy up my inner space, and go to the ocean. I will be checking email periodically, but generally speaking the less I'm online, the more I can relax into the tangible world of art. I'm hoping to restock my shop considerably for the fall/winter season and get my Tickle Me Pig shop up and running (finally).

Wishing you all a couple of weeks of peace, art, and beauty! I'll be taking my camera with me everywhere I go, so expect some ocean pictures soon!

As always - Keep Smiling!



  1. Hope you continue to have a nice break. Taking time away is important.

  2. Enjoy your vacation! I've selected you to receive a One Lovely Blog award, please feel free to visit my blog for details!

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 …
