Funky Needle Felting Tutorial from Robin Joy Andreae

Here's my much awaited tutorial video. I hope you find it helpful :-)

I'm Back Again

So sorry that it's been so long since my last post.  Life just seemed to be getting in the way.  I've noticed that I spend more and more time with Facebook and less and less time with my blog.  I love my blog because it's so easy to express complex ideas. That is something which I rarely do, unfortunately.

Quite a bit has happened since my last post.  I've felted quite a few little ones. But this summer has been the slowest yet as far as sales are concerned.  I'm not sure if it's the economy or just the Summer blues. I've noticed that when my sales are slow my creativity and production seem to wane.  I wonder if it's the finances or the need for approval or possibly both.  However, this week, I have the most items on eBay that I've ever had on. I'm hope you all like them.

I'm Back

Well, I had fun in Chicago and it was great to see all of my relatives! I've got new little one for this week. Her name is Jasmine, like the tea.  I hope you all like her.

Thoughts on Creativity

I just finished rather short but erudite book on creativity. It's  "Show Your Work" by Austin Kleon. He also wrote "Steal Like an Artist" which I intend to read.  One particular section challenged my views on teaching and in progress posts.  I tend to be rather private and have a notion that nobody really wants to see my work in what I call its ugly phase.    Now I see that work doesn't exist in a vacuum and that the process is just as important as the result. So in the near future, I will be doing more documentation of my creative process. I hope you will enjoy reading it.  Also, I'll be heading off to Chicago soon and will be visiting one of my very favorite places on the 17th of this month. The Chicago Art Institute. I just love French impressionism and my paintings are heavily influenced from that.  Here's a painting of a wolf that I did sometime back.
