Felting with Friends

Some new felted balls

We seem to be getting the reputation for being the "crafty" house in our group of friends. And I think that is much better than being known as the "crappy house". So when we have little friends come over to visit or they need a place to crash for a few hours until mom and dad get home...we break out crafts, of course.

Pile of new colorful wool roving....

One of our favorite things to do is share a new craft obsession or teach our friends a new craft they've never experienced before. This summer we got the chance to show a few friends about felting - both wet felting and needle felting. And I am proud to say that both boys stuck with it and made some awesome art that they shared with their families.

And Big E is always game for new arts & crafts. Here he did both wet felting and tried some needle felting. How do you like his globe and his Jesus fish?:

Sigh...we do our part to help make the world a little safer for the arts & crafts obsessed...the more we teach, the more we spread the love of crap....I mean, craft! Hee hee hee hee
