Oldies But Goodies

Oct 21, 2014

Are you ready to start cre­at­ing for the hol­i­days? If so, I have sev­er­al online work­shops that will keep you busy for months and the best part these are dis­count­ed and the prices are amaz­ing. Even though these work­shops were cre­at­ed sev­er­al years ago the foun­da­tion for each of the projects are time­less. All you need to do is replace the pat­tern papers I used with cur­rent papers and BAM you have some gor­geous hol­i­day dec­o­ra­tions. If you look through all the work­shops, you’ll find sev­er­al that are free. To get you start­ed just click on this link HERE and it will take you to one of the free online work­shops I...

Teeny Tiny Needle Felted Terrarium

Oct 20, 2014

I’ve been in Beau­mont help­ing mom and dad with a few of their aches and pains these past few weeks so while I’m sit­ting in the evenings I’ve been doing some nee­dle felt­ing. Over the week­end, I decid­ed to give it a go at mak­ing a tee­ny tiny ter­rar­i­um. The jar for this ter­rar­i­um is only 2″ x 2″. Which means the mush­rooms and gnome house are real­ly tiny. The tallest mush­room mea­sures 1″ and the gnome house is only .75″ and I LOVE the tee­ny tiny acorn cap used as the roof. Mom and dad have some super tiny acorns on their oak tree that are per­fect for these lit­tle hous­es. It’s a bat­tle between me and the squir­rel on who gets them first. I plan on mak­ing sev­er­al more of these tee­ny tiny nee­dle felt­ed ter­rar­i­ums because...

Needle Felted Doll

Oct 14, 2014

I’m in Beau­mont for a bit get­ting mom and dad tak­en care of, they are nick­named Gimp 1 and Gimp 2, at the moment. Dad has a nerve in his leg both­er­ing him and mom has a knee that wont straight­en. Between the two of them they are quite the pair. When I arrived last week my youngest niece, Isabel­la came down with a 24 hour tum­my bug so while watch­ing her for a few hours I made her a nee­dle felt­ed doll. She picked the wool col­ors and instruct­ed me on how she want­ed her doll to look. Col­lab­o­rat­ing with kids on a project is real­ly fun. She loves her doll and I was ever so hap­py to make it for her. The tum­my bug hit my niece Made­lyn, last night. I’m real­ly hop­ing...

Needle Felted Santa with Fir Tree

Oct 13, 2014

I’ve been hav­ing loads of fun nee­dle felt­ing. I start­ed this San­ta over the week­end and thought I would share with you a few pho­tos of him in the works. If any of you are inter­est­ed in learn­ing this art form let me know and I will glad­ly put togeth­er a tuto­r­i­al of a sim­ple project for begin­ners. Here is my San­ta before adding his rosey cheeks, eyes and eye­brows. It’s fun to see the per­son­al­i­ty of your piece come to life once you add these fea­tures. Every nee­dle felt­ed piece has it’s own unique look. And here is San­ta with his facial fea­tures and a bit more fluff added to his beard. Love his rosey cheeks. I decid­ed this San­ta need­ed a prop so what bet­ter item than a small fir tree for him...

Yes­ter­day, I thought I would try and nee­dle felt a San­ta orna­ment. Today, I’m going to try to make him a pair of glass­es. I love try­ing and dis­cov­er­ing new art forms. One nev­er knows if they can until they try. I will always try. I hope I inspire you to do the...
