The Importance of Punctuation

Here are a few of my more recent projects!

This is my favorite project that I've ever done.  It explains the importance of punctuation and says;

'Let's eat children!'  and then 'Let's eat, children!'  and then 'Commas Save Lives'.   It also earned me my first Featured Project on Craftster!  Woo hoo!  I think the recipient also liked it. :)

And then I made a bunch of cute little owl notecards for another swap.  They were really hard to let go because they were so darn cute.  

Anyway, I've got a few more things in the works.  Summer always makes it easier to find time to craft!

Adventures in NeedleFelting

I received a very cool needlefelting kit.  I had never tried needlefelting before and I was a bit hesitant at first.  After all, you take a barbed needle and stab it into a very thin material.  How would I not injure myself?

Well, apparently I didn't have enough faith in myself.  After reading the directions on the website of the store that sold the kit ( and looking at Craftster's basic directions ( I got to work.  Of course, I couldn't do exactly what the directions for the kit said.  I had to improvise.

I ended up entering the little snowman I made in the Needlefelting Challenge on Craftster.  I didn't win, but I was really pleased with my entry, anyway, since it was my first try at it!

And a side view, so you can see the 3-Dness of his little nose.

I've got some more wool left over and I might try my hand at another or use it for something else.  This little guy was a gift for my mom for Christmas.  I've recently purchased a set of small cookie cutters that I might use as templates to make some flat, needlefelted ornaments.  Yes, I know it's only January, but getting a start on Christmas gifts is never a bad idea!
