Etsy Showcase 28 october - Holidays Cards

I suppose the publicity for christmas decoration must start now, especially when handmade goods ask take a lot of time to be produced. Here is my Holiday Decoration Showcase on Etsy.
I designed these Star cards a year ago but it's a timeless idea and so lovely to send, to recive and to hang on your christmas tree or anywhere els in your house...

Happily for me Amanda found the Pink Dress I felted very appealing and presents it in her treasury on etsy. That generates a lot of intrest in that dress. So, if you're interested, you have to be fast.



I could happily set my mind free of all these thoughts. My actions concentrated on some new designs, handfelted soft toys (absolutely not like: Shaun the Sheep, although He's adorable), felted cushions and some new dresses with felt elements, but very
delicate. Can't wait to see it finished. The first dress is almost ready.
Now, some looser's wishfull thinking: I am planning to go to shops next week and show my stuff, but I'm still gathering THE most enthousiastic energy to show off. Must keep thinking " 'no' you have, 'yes' you can get ". Good luck to me!


Bloody fingers

Yesterday I discovered needle felting. It's however more for the finishing touches to my wetfelted object then for dryfelting in its pure form.

I find it difficult to needlefelt a ball. I think it's easier and it goes faster with water and soap. But attaching loose already wetfelted pieces to wetfelted surface works! Also making the thick "stiches" thinner and smoother is easier. I'm only wondering how I can get rid of the small wholes that the needle leaves behind...


56 members and growing

More then a year ago I started the Felting ArtCrafts group on Yahoo! and I'm pleased to see that the amount of members is constantly growing. We are already with 56 people. There are members from Australia, through Europe till Alaska.

At the very begining it was very quiet, nothing was happening and now everbody has a question and many give the answers. Nice to see (I started it :) )... We exchange some felting ideas, hints on techniques, tricks, inform each other about the books, courses and workshops in the neighbourhood. The Felting ArtCrafts starts living its own little life.
