What's in my Etsy shop?

As I mentioned in my last post, I've become enamored of needle felting and am in the process of adding new pieces to my etsy shop.

I've also added the two books that David and I published which combine his photography and my writing, as well as framed prints of David's photos.

Here are some of the items that currently appear in my shop:

Craft Night at EtsyLabs-2/9/09

This was the pre-Valentine Craft Night and we worked on needle-felted hearts, among other things.

This was perfect synchronicity for me because I'd recently developed an interest in needle-felting and had purchased a small kit. I'd seen some felted items that attracted me and was interested in three dimensional objects in particular.

A couple of weeks ago, I completed a needle felted heart on a base of felt. It was three dimensional, but rather flat. I went to Craft Night in search of answers to some of my questions. I got the answers I was looking for and, as usual, had a wonderful time!

The evening was very well attended; pretty much a packed house for part of the evening..... The teacher for the evening, Nguyen-Le who owns the knitknit shop on was low key but very helpful and supportive.

I found out how to make my pieces rounder, received inspiration and had fun; what a great Valentine!

Thanks Nguyen! Thanks Etsy!
