I finally have a new modem soooo happy after one week being without.... Now I can add more pictures
I bought cardboard boxes and cut out a shape and covered it with some of the florsity wrapping, from the inside, This way people can see what is inside without having to open the box.
A stamp of my shoplogo on the front side, the poem glued inside the box, my adress stamped inside and then finally added an angel. A lot of work , but it feels so good.
These I made as trial but loved them so much I descided to make them also in Red
After the reds, i was so enthusiastic I tried the pastel colors too.
And last but not least, the White ones. more are on their way...
My price for one angel is € 14,95 incl a box. Prijs is €14,95 per stuk, incl doos
Shipping is in a flat enveloppe (i'll fold flat the box again) De engel wordt verzonden in een platte enveloppe
Europe: € 4,75
Worldwide: € 5,-

Yes I am going international with my felting workshops... Germany, India, Sweden,, Belgium, Sounds good no? I hope to add more countries to it, as I like teaching and travelling too so a good combination.
But to be honest, Belgium isn;t that far from my place... only 30 minutes drive. Today's destination was one town more far then where I held an exhibition in May. Only the trees looks different. Where back then in May the trees were fresh green, now they slowly turning yellow, red, brown and becoma empty before the winter is here... Nervertheless, I am always feeling gratefull for the beautyfull area we live in and all the changes in nature per season.
At the place to be, were 8 children waiting for me to arrive. We had lots of fun while making 2 pieces of soap per person. Hopefully they wil once come to my place too, to do another workshop here.
ps. the table had this great color... but does now look little strange on the picture.
Today I had an annual day of the dutch felting society. I left very early with P. Noordhoff , drove to germany and picked up my Colleque A, drove to Susteren and dropped off my cardingmachine at M. place. All before 8,15. Then we finally drove to Amersfoort, a 2 hours drive from my place.
Not even 30 minutes from our last stop the heighway was closed and we had to follow the boards for the alternativ route, we saw villages we never were before and we arrived more north at the same heighway. I expected we could drive on it again, but still that part was also closed. I followed the signs Eindhoven again and arrive at the first spot we had to leave the heighway, arghhh, We drove a circle!! :( Finally we arrived one hour too late, missed the meeting but were in time for the worskhops
My first worskhop was called: "Knopen stansen en vilten".
We pilled up prefelt , one at a time and after felting it thoroughly it was punched and i got 4 beads
The second I participated was called : "deksels vilten" (felting with a lid)
I forgot to take pictures but there is a picture with all the things I "produced "
Next one was called "Zeeuwse Knoop" given by Ellen Bergman. Therefor we used some kind of sponge with holes and we added prefelt and wool on it. nice results!!
Then we moved over to the table to learn about how to make a scouts braird. The lady whom taught us , Titia Rithagen, told me that it was only possible for 4 times, "the folding". but I felt triggered and thought about it, and so I made a longer one. She was happy it also worked.
Then we went to try felting a Keltic knot , Which was also fun to do,,, amazing how a long felted cord of 1.5 m can become so short after knotting it.
Last thing i did was making a button from felt. We all got the first one for free the next ones were €0,75 each, Very special ones,for a special project.
In the left corner all the things I made , Very pleased with it
the other side of the table , not all people added their results there.
While driving back to our place we discussed about the scoutsbraird and we (A and me) descided it should be possible to make it longer....
Top one was a short one and bottom one is one part how I made it there and second part is made in the car... not by me, I was driving but by A.
It was a very nice meeting and i feel loaded with new plans and ideas
After writing this post I made 2 longer brairds and 2 more "ballflowers" by making holes in a sponge
These last few days of my vacation, I try to finish as many things as possible.
My husband is helping me to get the furniture I might need in the shop painted in white. As I don't have a definite plan so far, about my set -up. Depens on where i'll be standing in the building etc. I thought better (let) more things painted white as too few...
Also my other projects are still asking time. I have the interior project for which raw wool needs to be bought, washed and a bigger problem: also dried.... I can hardly find a proper space to get it dry .... and after that where to storage it?
bought 17 new fleeces, a kid passing by thought it was chicken...
my 3 washing tubs, and in front and back wool drying
I added plastic boxes upside down, they let in air from the bottum so the wool can dry
I asked a grocery store for vergetable cardboard boxes and I now use them as storage for the dried wool. It would be a pity to add all the wool back in a plastic garbage bag again plus this is easier to make a huge pile...
Another project is a jacket for a wedding on September 14th. I'll only show you one picture as i don;t want to show the rest yet.. I wil use chiffon silk and 2 layers of merinowool.... pictures of the result be posted here after the wedding i think.
The beginning, calculating how big my felt needs to be.....
