Inspiration

So many things inspire me to create.......

My favorite woodland butterfly, the Wood Nymph, I am working on her in felty form.


Our box turtle, Mister, has inspired me for a while now. But I am having trouble putting him into a felty form.


Another inspiring turtle that says hello every time we visit my sister at work. The lucky girl (my sister, not the turtle) works at a beautiful nearby arboretum.


This cute little toad lived in our orchard last summer. Toads and frogs in felty form would be cute!


Oh, the lovely moon, has inspired people for centuries. Fauna took this beautiful picture! (Proud mama moment!)


I love mushrooms and fungi of any sort. I have a collection of shelf fungi on our nature table. Shelf fungi would be interesting in felty form.

And the beautiful mushroom....mushrooms are easy to make in felty form! :)


And of course, my lovely ladies inspire me to create every single day!

Ain't it the truth, nature and the beautiful nature of our children are the best inspiration.
