I’m late on posting this for Earth Day, but as my daughter reminded me this morning, “Every day is Earth Day.” Happy week, all!
Made this little Earth to fit in the palm of a hand, with lovely dyed wools in different blues and greens. Added those whispy little clouds on last. My friend Bethany Kohoutek shot this image in front of a watercolor backdrop.
Couldn’t make a Leia without a Chewie!
We made POP-up cards over the weekend and the kids really got into it. LOVED all their awesome self-expression. Our daughter turned herself into girl Rambo. 🙂
Neon paper + glitter hearts + glue + googly eyes + super creative kiddos = V Day FUN!
Olivia, our five-year-old, had asked me to make a princess the other day. She’s always been more into Batgirl or Wonder Woman than princesses, so it surprised me. But Princess Leia really IS a Super Hero.
Hope it’s been a cozy, lovely start to 2017 for you all!
So excited to be asked to be part of Beaverdale Books’ “We Heart Local Authors” event February 11th, for Pearl & the Whale. More details to come!
Also thrilled to be teaching another needle-felting class January 28th at Knitting Next Door. We’re making little heart whales, just in time for Valentine’s Day.
This little sweetie was made from leftover tufts of cherry red wool. Thought she might fly right out of my hands.
PJs, Crafts & Storytime will happen again soon. !!! Thanks to Ephemera’s Karen and Arin for opening up their always sparkly shop downtown to host the Pearl & the Whale reading!
I think this week calls for a bit of good news…
Copies of Pearl & the Whale are now available on my brand new etsy shop: http://www.etsy.com/shop/PearlandtheWhale
AND. Cute lil’ ornaments for sale too. Book + ornament = the perfect gift for the holidays. More felted character ornaments to come! Happy, cozy Friday all.
Hot off the press, FIRST printed copy has arrived!! Opened the box up with our five-year old, who is learning to read. Loved watching her try to pick out some of the sight words they’ve been learning about in Kindergarten.
Just a few minor color shifts to do before printing them all. !! (Like getting the title shifted to the right to get it off the spine!) Looking at a BOOK RELEASE by end of November.
