This absolutely beautiful felted wrap caught my attention today and the story charmed me!

Rachel Denny
I saw her listing this morning and laughed in awe at the idea. She knits “trophy’s”. My favorite is the deer in Norwegian knit pattern.
Excellent idea. Wonderful conversation pieces.

Here’s a link to her Etsy shop:
…and no, it’s not what it sounds like. I would like to know how she decided on the name though! Be sure and look at the Xmas with Krampus too (funny!) http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=18693379

The Pondering Pool (aka Susan Mrosek)
I love this artists work. I first discovered her earlier this year and have since ordered a number of my favorites as 5X7 cards, framed them and created a visual display with my small project bags in my bedroom-it’s eclectic and amuses me every time I go there.
Some of my favorites are “She Let Go”, “Red Tennies”, “Live”, “Grapes”, “Exclamations”, “Clarity Bucket”, “Comfortable Shoes”, “Present Yourself”, Not On A Tuesday”, “Grieve Not”, “Splits”, “From Her Shell”, “Laughed to Death”, “Nonjudgemental”, “Play the Keys”, “Beside the Point”, “Yodel” and “Joyous” …and, and, and….see for yourself.

A second artist that I discovered this year is Story People (aka Brian Andreas). This company is based in Iowa and I first saw their work on display at Poopsie’s in Galena. An absolutely stunning kitchen table of the 4 seasons. The price reflects both their uniqueness and popularity. Their cards are reasonable though! Enjoy

I discovered this lovely knit scarf today while surfing Etsy for some other items. I admit the listing also inspired me in my blog title.
