TAG | Angels



Before Christmastime

Wow time  flies!! The last few weeks were very hectic and I had lots of problem with my modem and computer, I hope all is fixed now so I can reply to mails quickly , write new post and so on. It did how ever gave me an earlier chance of decorating our Christmastree.

My teaching was fun but also different as normal as I planned many trips outside the classroom, more work for me to organise a bus, drivers etc, but definitely worth it. They learn so much from these things. Meanwhile I also worked for my shop. I made many many angels and after that my shop started running out of votivs so I felted them.

All of them were done, packed seperately and send off to Apeldoorn. More work as thought but fun to do.

Had to order new wool again and as they are so jummy to look at i started making new votivs with them too.

And at Crafts and Co I gave a workshop how to make angels. Most of the ladies said "i am not creativ" but I always say every one is creativ and see the results. All very personal and unique. Well done ladies!!

After working so hard and also a wisomtooth removed in the hospital I was "beaten"down with fever and flue. Christmas days were good and after taking enoug rest I now feel like felting again :)  

Wil update some new works here tomorrow I hope..

and more….

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.

angels for peace

I am really into angels lately I guess you know already :) it is quite addictive to make them and as i have soo many colors wool it is very tempting to make at least 4 of each color, but i run out of wings again :(  I hope they will help to get peace in the middle east.

So last friday I was finally patient enoug to make some new angels. I experimented with the things I had and all of a sudden these grew out of my hands:
viltalakim, engeltjes, angel, felt, wool, wol,
First white angels, made from soft merino wool and wooden wings
viltalakim, , kim nijsten, wol, vilt, angel, white, wit, wool, wings
but why stick to white only ?
Let me make some red ones too...  
adding stars in silver  some in gold  and some in red. 
viltalakim, engel, angel, wol, wool,
and I asked my kids what other color shall I make now?
They looked at the curtain behind me whit all colors wool I ahve in Stock and  said that golden Yellow, So I followed their advice
After that I also made some purple ones as I think that is a trendy color for christmas  this year I think (but honestly it is my fav color ;-) )) 
viltalakim, angels, beschermengeltjes, rood, wit, pars, geel
and after that my wings were all gone......
So I need to order new ones... 2-3 weeks before they will arrive and I can have such a nice angel day again...  which colors to make then???

It is going to be a bussy period upcoming months, The Christmas holiday season is slowly starting. So every spare minute I try to make something and try to sell it in my shop or at fairs. I must admit due to the fact my camera isn't working properly anymore I hestitate listing new things to my shop. At fairs my range of products will be wider and more.viltalakim, Kim Nijsten, vilt, engeltjes, angel, wool, wol
