Tick Tock

Oh, the trouble with time! I wish I had more of it! I wish I had a hobby that didn't take so much time! I wish, I wish, I wish! But c'est la vie! I am diligently working on a shop update. So far I have a little owl, a bunny, a brown bear, a pig, a polar bear, and a few little surprises...and now I'm just waiting on a sunny day during which I can photograph all of them. *sigh* One of my major upcoming projects is building a suitable light box. Vermont winters are long and dark, and I can't rely on good light all the time.

I have also been occupying myself with diet and exercise - something that takes a lot of effort to get going at first. Between a full time job, fitting in workouts, and felting, I'm sleeping like a rock!

I hope to be better prepared next year for holiday orders and requests, but this is a learning process and needle felting is just a slow-moving craft. It's the snail of crafting. Ooh, snails!

Much love to all! I'm hoping to update the shop this week providing I can sneak in a photograph or two tomorrow morning.

I think he's one of my favorite creations ever...and he's for sale in my shop!

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 …
