Commence drooling!

I finally have a week off from my day job all next week. I am going to completely disconnect from the internet, computers, phones, and any sign of technology. I will be doing the following:

* needle felting

* drooling a little

* needle felting

* eating cake with my lovely friends because September 18th is my 31st BIRTHDAY! (my kind friend Erin is hosting the party at her house - so I don't even have to clean for it!)

* going to the New England Aquarium to visit my friends the harbor seals (favorite animal, by the way)

* doing outside things like canoeing, bird watching, nature tours, tubing on a river (can you say cold tush?)

* doing inside things like BRUNCH at my favorite brunch place (Sneakers in Winooski) and baking pies and learning how to roast a turkey (not kidding - I'm clueless!)

* RELAXING (hugely important)

* eating more cake

I hope everyone has a marvelous week. September is my favorite month!

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

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.
