I don't need to tell you how productive naptime can be for a new momma. While L was sleeping yesterday I got a chance to work (and finish!) this scarf. Naptime today also meant I could needlefelt the brooch, take photos and upload to Etsy. So productive, right? I'm really loving this new scarf. It's so texturelicious and the brooch makes it so versatile. I especially love the look of it as a neck cuff.

And it's just so darn photogenic...picking out 5 product photos for Etsy was hard work.

heart mobile

Here's a little sketch of my next felting project. A sweet mobile inspired by the birth announcement card I painted for Lila. The good thing about this is that I'll be needlefelting the hearts. That and the assembly can easily (and hopefully) be done in any spare time when Lila's awake. I usually keep any wetfelting work for when she naps. The hearts will be strung on a driftwood branch I picked up on our last trip in Toronto, which will also be painted white.
What do you think?

hello again

How the time does pass! Creative projects have been slow in the past few months, but I'm sure you've noticed that by now. My beautiful little daughter, Lila, is here, and has been for almost two months now.
But I guess I couldn't stay away from my studio for too long, because I'm back in it again. I've been in the mood for neckwear lately, and I just finished a new piece I've aptly named 'wall pocket.' Just so you know, something totally different from neckwear ;) Not quite sure about the snazz-appeal of the name so maybe I'll have to think up a new one. My mind is also drifting towards mobiles. I've got one in mind which was inspired by Lila's birth announcement card. I'll have to take a photo of that for tomorrow's post.
Well, it's good to be back in this space again. In the meantime, here's some of that new neckwear I mentioned. Can be found in my Etsy and (new!) Dawanda shops.
