Making some faces & some crown tags

I could not get the faces to over cook this time like I did with the faces I did before. I will have to try to burn them in the toaster oven. How do you like the little crowns?

Icicle doll Pt. 6

I added a note in the silk pod. I printed it on silk fabric to go in the silk pod

Icicle doll Pt. 5

I added bronzer to the pale face to give it more depth. I think this is it. They are finished...untill I add or change something. I had better lighting today for taking photos so they show more depth.

Icicle doll Pt. 4

I want to make a million of these.

Framed and up

I love this little planet so much!. I am delighted every time I walk by it hanging on my wall. I got a great frame for it from our NEW IKEA. I am so happy IKEA is finally open.

You can Dress her up...

I made this mask for a party my daughter was going to. Her hair was looking too good that night to show off the mask. A girl must do what a girl has to do.

You can dress her up but you can't take her out.

Thank you Heidi!!!!

I have collected knitting needles for some time. I love the colors, feel, shape, and I like just having them in a vase like flowers. Heidi sent me a package with a lovely handful to add to my other addiction..."having things that just look pretty."
Thank you Heidi!

And then there was one

I took this photo last night.

I took this photo this morning.


Update on the beads....
One was under the stove, one under the dryer, one still on the table under bubble wrap and the last one was in the closet of the guest room on the floor.

Addiction never felt so good!

Stacy, my husband, thinks that I need an intervention. Felting has taken over and I don't think I can quit. Here is the latest drug of choice...felted acorns.

Felted Beads

I began to felt some beads and it did not stop. The embellishing began to take over and hours later they were done.

Cat toy Pt.2

I thought I would be nice to crusty and make her a felted ball to play with. I rolled the ball across the room she looked at it, smelled it and walked away. Such a nice kitty.

The great pumpkins' adventure (cat toy pt. 1)

One would think that the 4th shelf of the bookcase would be a safe place for a little pumpkin

Pumpkin #2

I made this pumpkin using an underlayer of yellow to add some depth to the color. Then I felted a layer of orange and added a few light, wispy strands of deep orange. I also made the stem a little different than the first one I made.

Crusty seemed to like the last pumpkin a lot. I found it in the middle of the living room on the floor this morning. I wish I could have seen where that pumpkin had been batted around last night. She looks so guilty...

felted owl

This little guy was fun to make. I poked my fingers a million times but I am convinced that felting with a needle is the way to go. I love the control you can have but my fingers are sore.

Felted Bird #2

I needed to make another Felted bird just to see if I could do it again and I had luck once again. This time I made a hat out of a silk pod and added vintage beads and peacock feathers to the hat. I enjoyed embellishing the hat.

Easter chick For Paige

Here is a photo of the first felted bird I did. It was a Easter gift for Paige. I really like this color.
