A New, Exciting Year

First of all, it's been a great holiday season for my little shop. Thank you all so much for your love and support! I've got fun plans for the new year, and I'm so excited to get started!

As you probably know, the wool stuff in my shop is needle felted. But I have been wanting to try my hand at wet felting. (If you're curious, check out this tutorial for making a basic piece of felt with this technique.) Folks, adding this technique to my repetoir brings on so many possibilities. I've been wanting to do some framed pictures, and I will do these with wet felting plus a little needle felting and maybe embroidery for accents and details. Can't wait! I've been brainstorming and sketching ideas for these---and obviously, I think one of the first pictures needs to have a sheep...

I'd also like to do some artsy, one-of-a-kind needle felted pieces. My first pieces will be a very artistic owl series. These owls will be highly detailed and larger than my usual pieces. Here's a peak at some sketches for the owls...

I also plan on doing some larger, outdoor shows this year and am considering doing some traveling for other shows in the region. (Oh, and my in-laws deserve a HUGE thanks for giving me a tent for outdoor craft shows for Christmas--so awesome--thanks, guys!!) 

Do you have big plans for the new year?
