Miesmama

Hi there!

I was asked to do a post about me and to show my face, so hi, here I am! I took this picture of myself last year, there's not a lot of photos of me knocking around, thousands of my kid's though! lol!

So, here's my mini bio -

I have always loved being creative, especially in fiber arts, I even went to art college to pursue this, however I came to realise that I have not the ambitious drive to do that as a career, so it was shelved for a while. Work, travel, marriage, and kid's later, I decided to satrt again. Firstly, I wanted to re-learn how to knit, and was taught by a wonderful friend at a knitting group, this led to the discovery of felting, which I fell in love with. I began to make bags, and bowls, and loved to make them, but i began to wonder what to do with all my little creations. It was about this time that I also discovered Etsy, and the natural progression was to start selling my wares there. This has been a lovely way to continue my art, and make a little step towards a more self-sustaining lifestyle.

I live very happily in the Adirondacks, in Upstate New York, with my husband, two kids, dog and two cats, sometimes working at a local bookstore, and sometimes working on my felted creations. Life is good! ♥
