Month: January 2014

A Little Ray Of Sunshine

I’m in Minnesota and it’s been a very, very cold winter. One thing I like to do at this point (end of January, the thick of it!) is look at some photos from spring/summer and remember what it’s like to feel really warm while standing outside. I offer you a little ray of sunshine…

A Little Bit Of Sunshine

A few days ago I purchased some new house plants, pots and dirt too. That helps the winter blues! I’m also trying to make as much new art-stuff as possible so that when the weather does warm up I’m more able to be out in it.

Awesome Recent Etsy Finds #5

I’ll start off with some BIG items!

First off is this wood slab table. I want to make a table sort of like this some day. (Note: My dad made the tables I grew up eating on! My brother still uses them, dents from years ago and all)

This couch makes quite a statement, doesn’t it? The purple and the details… lovely!

Now some smaller items..

This shop really figured out how to make some awesome journals. This one is so detailed.

Watercolor world map in cool colors. WANT!

Needle felted luna moth! She did a great job.

Amethyst crystal soap has been interesting to me for a long time. I would love to try and make some but it looks complicated!

Needle Felting Update (3+ Years!)

Needle felting is something I have enjoyed since I first picked it up well over 3 years ago. Over this time I have made many things! One of the first things I ever made was a rabbit with real cat hair on the outside, followed by owls. I am continuing to make owls, snowmen, woolly worms, bees, mushrooms, custom cats, mice and more. It is a goal of mine to make more new needle felted characters this year. This last year I did some really neat projects so I feel the need to keep the ball rolling. I want to share with you a couple of the new snowmen I felted this month, as well as some of my all-time favorites. (New owls at the top of the post!)
