Why I Felt Fuzzy? I wanted to express that feeling you get when you receive a gift for no good reason. Or the excitement you feel when you have really made someone’s day. That feeling you get when your significant other comes home with flowers after you’ve had a bad week, or to suprise you for no good reason. The warm fuzzy feeling you share by giving someone something to smile about. Even if it is as simple as buying yourself something special. This is what I had hoped to share with the world when I originally opened my shop.

I am a PhD candidate at Johns Hopkins SOM and when I have time I like to craft. At school I am a researcher in the biomedical sciences and am currently spending most of my day attempting to clone and Western Blot. On any given day where nothing seems to have worked in the lab, it's nice to come home and make something. This way I feel like I have been productive at some point during the day! Needle felting is also an effective stress relieving activity because you are literally stabbing at loose wool until it begins to condense - and in my case make its way to something cute - which makes me happy :)

I stumbled upon needle felting a while back after losing a pair of felt earrings and looking for ways to re-create them!

Needle felting is the process of condensing loose wool by repeatedly stabbing the fibers with special needles. Eventually they condense and can be shaped by stabbing more in one place than another. It doesn't make a lot of sense when described but it somehow works amazingly!

Each piece takes anywhere from 2-5hrs to complete. What is up on the page is currently available. I will take custom orders but please understand I am busy and will give my best estimate on the amount of time needed to complete the project.

Thank you for stopping by and please feel free to contact me if you have any questions!

I recently opened up another Etsy shop, Syringa Paper Co, where you can find more paper crafts, party and home decor items.
