My latest...

So, June is almost over!! Where did it go? I have been a busy little bee. I have just finished up a really big project, and about to begin another.

 I taught my last workshop a couple of weeks ago, and I think I will start up with workshops again come September.

 I ordered some little gems to mark my mark my art pieces. I am super happy with those! I got them from Sparkle Monster on Etsy.  I am going to make a listing for custom made needle felted cosplay ears very soon, and I want to make up stock for Northern Fancon next year!! :)

The big project I was working on was for my friend Cindy Brandner who is the author of the most excellent book series Exit Unicorns.  The pieces were inspired by the series. I just adore this series, and if you are a fan of anything Irish, especially Irish historical fiction, This is a just read series!! :)

Goodies in the works!

Hello all!

May is wrapping up, and  my workshops have been fantastic!! I have had loads of fun this spring teaching needle felting to all the great people I have met.  A big THANK YOU to all !! I have one last class  so far next month with a group of grade 8/9's at a local private school here in Quesnel. I am super excited to share this craft with budding minds. :) I am sure it will be a hit.

Workshops are winding down for the summer, and I have some goodies I am going to be working on for the Quesnel Farmer's Market for June. I can't wait to show you, but for now it has to be a secret! I promise it will be awesome! I am also thinking about planning for Northern Fancon next spring! So stay tuned for that.

Summer arrived early here, and yard work and planting have already begun weeks ago. I am expecting it to be a great summer, but likely hot and dry. I hope not too dry.

Have super summer! Stay tuned for updates.

Cheers!
