Needle Felting Tutorials on the Internet

Monday, May 10, 2010

Welcome to my first blog post!

I had never thought or planned to write a blog before until last week. It all happened when I began to follow Julia's blog at BearCabinMiniatures She is my second customer on Etsy!

It was quite intriguing to read through Julia's posts and linkouts. With her encouragement, I decided to become a blogger though I know deep down I'm not loquacious. ;-)

Well, here I'm to give myself a challenge blogging away. My blog posts will focus on the aspect of my life as a crafter and dreamer who sometimes get lost in the fantasy land of creativity. I'm a hobbyist and want to think of myself as an artist so that I can ignore dirty dishes when I'm in the middle of completing a craft project.

My best regards to Julia who helped in a big way to make this blog happen. xx


Yesterday afternoon, while listing a few new craft items in my Etsy store, I got a convo from Gerry.  OMG, is it the same Gerry who answers needle felting questions in her weblog?  I've been a fan of her beautifully felted animals. After cross checking, I could confirm she is the guru whose work I have been secretly admiring.  I felt overjoyed when I found that she likes my dollhouse fish pond shown below.

I bought more granitex clay a week ago even though I don't know yet what I am going to make from it.  If I can figure out how to create the water effect in a fountain, I really would like to sculpt one.

Meanwhile, I will make a few more raw hide bones from polymer clay for my felted dogs that are yet to be born. :-)

  10. Hi,

    There is wonderful people in the miniature blog world.

    Now I will go to have a look to your Etsy shop!


  11. Hi Eva,

    I visited your mini-escenas blog. Your Elf Eärendur is so charming! No wonder you're proud of him. ;-)


  12. Hi I am glad I found your blog we have a lot in common I needle felt and use polymer clay :-) I also like paper mache at the moment. Your Dogs have such character :-) I am sure there are some tips on making water effects on the CDHM. I look forward to seeing more of your creations bye for now.

  13. Hi Juliet,

    Yes, indeed! We've a lot in common especially when I saw your tutorial for making a paper mache necklace display. I repurpose and recycle to save the environment! BTW, I love your tutorials.

    So little time, so many craft projects to do!
