Wednesday 9 women gathered in my home and felted balls and angels.  A great atmosphere was created as conversation flowed freely and hands were busy at work. There was an eclectic group of women from a midwife, yoga teachers, homeschooling mom, and home daycare provider.  When I am with a group of people creating, talking about life, I am at my happiest.  I love learning from others and hearing other people's experiences.  It was all lovely and I am loving this hosting workshops in my home. It's been a dream of mine for many years and as this year is about being creative and living my dreams it all fits in quite nicely.

I fell in love with felting 4 years ago (I think, time can be very elusive for me).   My mad passion for barbed needles and wool began at a workshop for childcare providers where I learned to felt dolls.  I have had a love affair with this art form ever since.   Now my mission is to join community through creative expression.  So many people tell me that they are not creative and I always disagree with them.  I truly believe that we are all creative.  It is part of being human.  It is my opinion that when we put our creativity aside we create a void within ourselves.  I could keep on going but that will have to wait for another time.  I have been so busy lately that I am surprised my head is still on straight.  My plans for the next 24 hours is to go hang out with my dear friend in his cabin in the woods, go for a walk in the forest and warm up by the fire.  I am sure there will be a little felting in there somewhere ;) Have  a great weekend and see you soon!
