Hamlet & two tiny bears!

Hamlet, a custom order piggy I’ve been working on for what feels like ages..is finally finished and well on his way to his new home! Now I’ve got two more little bears in the works! I hope to get them done and in the shop by the end of the week! Tweet This Post Stumble […]


Wow…it’s been a while…

alrighty! so it’s been quite awhile since i’ve updated this thing…but i guess that tends to happen when you wind up chasing an almost one & 1/2 year old around alllllll day! not to mention, sneaking in creative time & trying to keep up with all the daily who-ha of chores,bills, & all that wonderful […]


don’t attempt to try this at home…..

 ….okay? unless of course you’re alot smarter than me (which i’m bettin’ you are!) & wear long sleeves & an apron! yup…i decided to shave this mohair…which on first thought actually seems pretty ludicrous since mohair is soooo expensive, but i had this mohair sitting around for quite some time & i never really liked […]



 my very first octopus! yay! i finished her up this morning & just added her to the shop ! she has an extensively needle felted face, but i kept the rest of her fairly simplistic….although i did have a strange urge to needle felt a little top hat for her, but i think that may be […]


that’s MR. PORKTINI, to you!

 yep…i said it. Mr. Porktini…..because what could be more weird than a “porktini”? maybe a plush Mr. Porktini? nah…the alchoholic kind are just plain freaky….& i’m not saying that simply because i’m a vegetarian…but pork..in your martini??? whatever happened to good ole green olives? geesh! oh well. this new little guy is number 57 in […]


pen pal & stuff!

seriously tho’…it is really beautiful out today…i should be out & about, but instead…as a mentioned in the previous post…my mind is a swirl of ideas once that long awaited sunshine sneaks out! not to mention, i’ve got tons upon tons of laundry that i’ve been slacking on..that really needs to be done! i will […]


i know…i’m a slacker…i totally forgot to post yesterday’s doodle. but at least i managed to make one today! i really must have been some sort of plant in a former life. whenever it is gloomy out (such as today…& the majority of winter) i sink into some sorta seasonal depression kind of thing. only, […]


abe the lion!

 yay! abe is finally complete! he’s number 56 in the lil’ outsiders series & is my first ever lion! this guy nearly made my arm fall off! i wound up needle felting his entire mane….including the back of his head! so needless to say he took me forever! anywhoot….this is going to be a truly […]


it’s almost over!

ugh. it’s almost over. the house buying process, that is! we’re finally getting somewhere in this whole process & it’s stinkin’ about time! the whole experience has left a sour taste in my mouth….from buyers agents who were not representing us (the buyer!) to smelly septic tanks! this is actually the fourth house we tried […]


kipper kitty!

 i am finally finished with #55….he is a mint greenish kitty made from a medium density mohair with a chocolate backing. i named him “mr. kipper kitty” after my hubby …who has a strange cat like tendencies to eat tons …and i mean tons of kippers! fortunately for me, he only eats them when he […]


a note from 425sqftart….

i love to make odd little furry animals out of mohair & wool (among other numerous crafty projects!) Each piece is unique and one of a kind..painstakingly created over days! i do not normally do commission work, but hey if ya have any ideas throw 'em my way!
