Diorama’s are Cool.

Hello Friends!

I hope 2014 is going well for all of you! I haven’t checked in for awhile and I wanted to share a recent creation. I’ve always been fascinated wit all things MINIATURE and I had these little circles that I picked up from a craft store, so I gave it a whirl.

This is my try at a bluebird themed diorama!

I WON! I WON FELTING STUFF!!! :)

Hey Friends! I’m so excited I just have to share! :)

Remember the poodles I just posted about?

Well, for those of you who don’t hang on my every post, (ha!) I received an order for 10 big poodles (5 pink, 5 white) that would be in centerpieces for a baby’s 1st birthday party.

Soooo, anyway, I misjudged the amount of pink wool roving I would need to complete the 5 pink poodles.  I had to place an “emergency order” for “CUPCAKE” colored roving. I called the very nice folks at LIVING FELT and they helped me out with my

Pink Poodle Predicament!

I received my pink roving in time to complete the order, and it all worked out!!! YAY!

So I posted pics of the final product on Living Felt’s Facebook page, to let them know how they helped me out. By posting pictures on their page, I was automatically entered in a drawing for a gift certificate to Living Felt’s awesome online store, a wonderful place full of what fellow felters covet: beautifully colored FUZZ (aka wool roving) and all the tools of the trade.

I WON!

YAY!

Poodle Party!

I just finished a special order requested by a party planner. Her client was having a 1st birthday party, and the party had a Paris theme.

The request was for ten of my poodles. When I found out they were for the centerpieces, I asked if she wanted them bigger than my normal 5 to 6 inch tall poodles. She said yes, and so began my first venture into SUPER SIZED needle felted creations!

IMG_7084IMG_7081IMG_7086I have to say, it was a learning experience! Although not too different as far as technique, planning just how much wool I needed was the hard part.

The order was for 5 pink and 5 white poodles, with lavender ribbons tied into bows on their ears.

Snooty attitude was standard.

I had about 2 and a half weeks to complete them all, and Halloween (my fave holiday second to Christmas) was in that time period too. But I managed it, and feel confident I provided my customer with my very best effort.

She was kind enough to send pictures….the first one is their arrival to her house:

This second picture is of the actual completed centerpiece. Her client was happy, and so was the party planner. It was a fun experience!

I may try to go large with my deer as well, since the holidays are now upon us. And by that I mean the carols are already playing in some stores, and the commercials have begun. This is the time of year that I use the MUTE button on my remote control OFTEN.

Hope this finds you all well!
