Inspiration

Oof...life can be complicated, eh?

I've received a few private messages asking about my art/shop/life and I thought I'd do a quick update. I know the holidays are coming and this could be a wonderful time for my shop. I think there a few reasons I've been on an art hiatus lately, mostly due to personal events in my life and helping my best friend get ready for her wedding (which was this past Saturday). I've had a few health issues that I'm attending to, and at the end of the day, I've been relishing going to bed really early.

I'm currently smack dab in the middle of a large commission, a small commission, an even smaller commission, and another large commission due around Christmas. Mystery mystery! However, I do have a few creatures waiting to be photographed - a bear, a giraffe, and a sleeping fox. I'm hoping for ten minutes of sunshine to get good shots of my little friends, and listings should be forthcoming.

I hope you are all smiling and doing well and I hope to be more active now that my weekends are freed up a bit!

Anyone else having trouble with inspiration?

    Sending you smiles... you always make us smile!
    I have non-creative times~ usually the during the most beautiful weather and the cold, dark... damp weather. One because I don't want to be indoors and the other because light (lack of)is so important. Seems like that describes the weather in our little corner lately :)

    Hope you have a wonderful rest of the week & that your special orders are bringing you joy!

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 …

Thar He Blows!

Sometimes you just need a whale made out of wool. I know I do. I almost can't stand to sell this whale because I've been trying to perfect the shape for months. 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!
