I'm baaaaack

I just cannot seem to keep up with everything I need to do.  And remembering to post to my blog seems to take back seat.  My apologies to my followers.  I have been somewhat productive on making felties, but not as much as I would like.  I do think I am developing my own style and am happy about that.  Let me show you what I have made recently and you can decide.

This first one is a sweet little bunny.  His head is jointed.  I am so happy with his face, something I have always had a problem with.
This next one, a grey tabby is one of my favorite cats I have done.  Again, I am very happy with the face.

I love the smug smile on my rainbow kitty.  He looks so happy and serene.  This was a lot of fun to do with all the bright colors.

This little guy was done for a friend's son's birthday.  He is eight and loved his little cat.

This guy is my pride and joy.  I worked really hard on him.  The first try did not look too good.  I spent a couple weeks adding and redoing areas like the face.  He is 12" long and 12" tall at the tip of his tail.  I am thrilled with the outcome.
It really does take a lot of work to shape wool with a barbed needle so that you end up with a sculpture.  Why do it when sculpting with clay would be easier.  The challenge.  To take something like wool, something you would never imagine making a sculpture out of, and to shape it with a needle that you stab into the wool over and over to create a cat, dog, doll or anything you want to me is amazing.   I love watching the wool take shape, adding muscles and features and creating something cute or very realistic.  I have seen felted animals that are so realistic that if I hadn't been told it was a picture of a feltie, I would have thought it was the real deal.
It takes lots of patience, creativity, time and the love of the process to needle felt.  It is not for everyone, but everyone can enjoy the results.

A new line of polymer clay sculpts in my Etsy shop.  Tiny little animal sculptures.  Hubby came up with the name PETites, as they are petite  little pets.  I love it and was very surprised he thought of it.  Each one comes in its own little pet carrier.  I will be making a lot more of these and putting them in my shop.
 These first ones were not easy to make with the heat we have been having.  The clay got soft very quickly and made it difficult to work with.  I am hoping I can get a little more detailed on the next batch, but working that small is not the easiest thing to do.  Very challenging.

It has, once again, been forever since I posted here.  Really have not had to time to make anything.  Now that I am not working, I am creating again. Here is a centaur that I worked on for a long time.  It is needle felted out of wool.  It is 12" tall and 12" long.  I have also entered it into a contest.  Wish me luck.
I have also created a new line of polymer clay sculpts.  I call them Hen Feathers.  I have had pet chickens for two years now.  I really love my birds, and had a few favorites too.  Out of the 27 birds I had I only have one left.  over the past year, first foxes then bobcats killed them off.  Every time one was killed a pile of beautiful colored and fuzzy feathers were left behind.  I would gather them up planning on using them in my crafts.  In honor of my beloved birds I lost, I started sculpting whimsical hens and roosters in three sizes using the feathers for their wings and tails.  You can see the whole line of them at my Etsy store:  Here are a few pics to peak your curiosity.

I have found a wonderful new art form, and am totally addicted.  It is called Zentangle.  I see it as a form of meditative creating.  A tangle is a design.  you draw a string, a scribble line, basically, crossing over itself, curving, straight, all at once.  Then in each section that is created, you draw a different tangle.  I bought a kit from the website  In fact, I also got a kit for my two nieces and two nephews, and I hope they are enjoying this as much as I am.
I did not realize how wide spread this was until I started finding blogs about it. They even have certified Zentangle teachers.  I would love to become one, but have to save up a lot of money first.
Here are the first few pieces I have created.
