Bella McBride's Profile

About

Dear Etsy Shopper,

My name is Bella McBride and I would like to thank you so much for visiting my little corner of Etsy and would like to invite you to have a seat, grab a cup of tea and have a look around!

In this shop you will see all sorts of needlefelted soft sculptures that are made by poking and prodding different colours of wool with a extremely sharp barbed needle until you reach the perfect shape. It literally takes thousands of pokes and hours and hours (if not days) to reach just the right sculpture. Most of my wool comes from local shops, which means local sheep, alpaca and even rabbits!

Almost all of little creations are one of a kind works but if you see something in my sold items that you like I can always recreate something similar to met your needs. I also love a challenge and make custom…

Dear Etsy Shopper,

My name is Bella McBride and I would like to thank you so much for visiting my little corner of Etsy and would like to invite you to have a seat, grab a cup of tea and have a look around!

Almost all of little creations are one of a kind works but if you see something in my sold items that you like I can always recreate something similar to met your needs. I also love a challenge and make custom orders. Just convo me and we will talk! I have even on occasion traded my felts for other works of art!

Now a little bit of personal stuff. I'm very shy and don't normally talk about myself but I've decided I like you and will share a little! I was born and raised in the same small community that I live in now in beautiful Southern New Brunswick, Canada. At a fairly young age I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia and have lived with it for the past 15 years. Over the years I have fought this tooth and nail but have struggled to find a balance. Thanks to a fabulous husband and this wonderful invention of the internet, I have been able to open these two Etsy shops and have found a better balance! I have finally found a job that I love... and my boss? She's tough and pushes me, but she's got potential! ;-)

Thanks for taking the time to learn about me and my craft! I've enjoyed meeting you and please stop in any time!

Cheers,
Bella
