Over on my FB page I am having a giveaway: Meet Uno Bear! click here to go to my Facebook page
Uno is a sweet little anniversary bear. It is one year ago that I made my first jointed bear! His name was Vaughn and this is him:
Uno is 4″ tall and all wool. He’s jointed and his head, arms and legs move. His ears and eyes are sewn on for extra durability. For a toy, I recommend he be for children 4 and older.
To enter over on FB, comment on Uno’s post by tagging a friend and telling me why you appreciate them 🙂 You can do more than one post. I’m going to have my teenage daughter pick a random winner from all the comments. We will announce Uno’s new home on Sat Jan 17th. The contest closes at 11:59pm EST Jan 16th. The person who LEFT the comment will receive Uno. Shipping is on Wooly Topic. I can’t thank you enough for entering!! Uno is one excited little dude.
I wanted to share a more personal side of Wooly Topic, where I create in my home and some of the fun chaos I work in. This space seriously makes me tick 🙂 I live in Southwestern Ontario, it’s winter here and very cold and snowy as I write this. There really isn’t anything that comforts me more than being cozy in here where I can create. My home is crazy busy. We have 5 children, the oldest is 17 and the youngest is 3. We also have 6 rescued pets that live with us. At this point in my mommy career, it’s not possible to work away in a room away from the chaos of the family. Our house is open concept, so my wonderful work space that I am showing you here, is out in the middle of the house, so I can sit and work but still be in the thick of things happening 🙂 I love all things vintage. I collect old spools of all sizes, I love buttons. It makes me happy to display them in old mason jars and makes for easy access too! One of my favourite things is packaging up items to send off to their new homes. I have quite a stamp collection for this. I think I’m going to be over run with packaging supplies soon! I’m addicted to them! Of course I like to decorate and add lots of whimsy. So fun and comforting. Fills my soul. The two beautiful dolls are part of my waldorf collection, meet Millicent from Abby Owsley Dolls and Emmalynne from Lemon Drop Dolls. I have such a love for deer. My artist friend Krista Schneider painted these gorgeous pictures. I’m so filled with joy to have them. Kind of a funny thing… I do all my felting upon this yoga ball. I think I’ve taught myself to balance quite well as a result. In fact, and I wish I could get a video of this some time, my 3 year old son will often stand on the yoga ball behind me as I work and bounce as his little arms are around my neck. How I don’t stab myself is a mystery! I often think it’s quite a side show we have going on with this.
Thank you for looking! I am so pleased to introduce a more casual side of myself to you! ~
Well Hi! Fancy meeting you here.
I have finally done it… Wooly Topic is now officially a “.com” 🙂
I think this will be mega fun. My passion is creating and next to that is sharing the fruits of that passion with you. I’ve met some amazing people since starting Wooly Topic. I want to share with you all the chaos, crazy, all the happy and the whimsy that goes into Wooly Topic. I might tantrum. I might cry. I may YELL. There might even be cursing… but I WILL laugh and love and share.
Be patient with me as I try to learn this whole process. What a new task for a very nontechy person!
