a snow stone giveaway



To celebrate the falling snow, I'd like to have a little giveaway.


This is a larger textural stone, about 3" long, inspired by frost and the coming snows that cover the lumpy and odd bits in nature.  For those of you new to my work, I cover real stones that I've gathered in wool, felt it, and stitch on the surface.  In addition to stitches, this stone also boasts glass seed beads.  The varying textures make this a fun piece to run your hands over.


***THIS GIVEAWAY NOW CLOSED***
If you'd like to a chance to win this stone, you just need to leave me a comment on this post, but here's what I need from you...

I need your feedback.

I'd like to know what you would like to see from me this year, from this blog and in my shop.
More natural dyeing, more tutorials, more stones, more ornaments, more foraging...what would you like to see?

Leave a comment, and be sure to give me a way to contact you.  I'll ship worldwide, so everyone is more than welcome to enter.

I'll close the comments and announce the winner on Monday morning, Jan.16th.


Thank you everyone!
Have a great weekend!

I would love to be entered in your giveaway... Such a splendid piece!

What would I like to see on your blog? I enjoy reading all your posts. The foraging posts along with your creations are my most favorite- followed closely by the various ways to naturally die materials. My son and I really really enjoyed the acorn article and how to make food from natural resources. I am passionate about living as much as we can nature without all the chemicals! :)

Grainne said...

Oh wow! I'd love to get this Stone! The winter seems to be disinterested in visting Germany this time...
I would like to read more tutorials of you. I'm really looking forward to learn how to dye with natural materials!

MamaAngel said...

Well, many of those topics interest me! At this moment, natural dyeing is at the top of the list. I used your poinsettia pin tutorial to make several gifts for Christmas, so I love new tutorials from you too!

Krista said...

that stone is breathtaking!

more: natural dying, foraging (i live in MN too, so i love seeing what you find)

Betz White said...

I say keep doing what you are doing, as long as you love it! Your passion comes through and it shows in your work. I personally would love a chance to buy one of your acorn/mushroom ornaments, but only if you enjoy making them! :)

Follow your bliss! Then share it. It's what you do...

beached librarian said...

First: I'm jealous. We've hardly had any real winter weather here and our yards are lacking in lovely snow.

Second: I'm so inspired by everything you post, I hardly know what to suggest. I love learning, so I will never say no to more tutorials. You're foraging posts are always interesting and full of lovely and interesting pictures. ANd I love your pictures (Wordless Wednesday is often one of my favourite posts of the week). For me, more of the same would be just about perfect :)

Sarah M said...

Love the stone, we are just getting our first "real" snowfall of winter here in upstate NY. I would love to see more of everything, mostly the pieces you make for your children. I love the blocks and doll bed and the sweater for your daughter.

oversewn (Raven) said...

Oh my - I would love love love to win this - so beautiful!! Here in So. Cal - no snow!
I love everything on the blog.....hmmm......I would say some more tutorials. I love sneak peeks into how things are made. And I too would love to buy an acorn ornament as well.
:) xoxo

nini said...

What an amazing piece, looks like a small planet to me.

Although I only found your blog earlier today I must confess I'll be back for more. I already bookmarked a few of your tutorials (which I always like to see, everywhere) but like Betz White said, keep doing what you love and we shall all benefit from it.

And I thank you very much for visiting my blog and writing a comment there. It feels so wonderful to receive comments :)

mireya said...

I love all of your post, and your work as woolly inspiration. but I would like to see more post on natural dyeing and your awesome mushroom hunts
also the adorable tiny mushrooms within acorns would be so beautiful as pendents
thank you for being you and for the give-a-way

RaeA said...

OMG! How Beautiful!!!!
Keep doing what you love & just keep being you.
Blessings -

Valerie C. said...

I would love to win this breathtaking piece of artwork!

I've admired your work for sometime..and I truly believe that you must follow your heart when it comes to what you work on this year! Whatever you choose, I know we will all love it!

Muhku said...

I love reading all your posts! Since I'm always looking for inspiration I would say more tutorials and stones.
And such a beautiful giveaway! :)

eidolons said...

I do especially love your dyeing and foraging posts. They're always great for dreaming of things I'd like to do. (:

Sarah B said...

I think my favorite are the foraging posts, makes me feel like I'm taking a walk in the woods right along with you! Thank you for such an inspirational and beautiful blog!

Amy O'H. said...

That stone is lovely! As for your blog- more of the same! I've enjoyed all of your posts- they are so varied. You cover a wonderful assortment of topics. It's wonderful glimpsing crafts and nature through your eyes (and lens).

Moooody Cow ♥ said...

Hello,

I'm fairly new to your blog, but I love it already :)

I'd love to see more tutorials please.

Thanks xx

Christy on the Craggy Moor said...

I really love your foraging and pics. Your felted mushrooms fascinate me, as do your beautiful pins! I love your dying too. It is such a joy to read your blog because you let your creativity guide you in such an artistic way. I'd say, let inspiration be your guide this year too! I would enjoy more tutorials on dying, I'd love to learn more about it (and try some).

This snow stone is so fun to look at-the textures and subtle shades of white really draw the eye! I'd so love to win one.

Marilyn said...

I would love to see you progress naturally. You are doing more now than you did before and as you find new things they present more for you to explore. The mushrooms that you used, to dye the mushrooms that you made...for eg. The little brooches "with a view", are divine and maybe a few more will happen if you see something that sparks your imagination...everything you do is just a marvel and you know how I feel about your magic fingers!!!

Christie Clark said...

What I love about you is your honesty, simplicity and clarity. Your voice is pure as you describe your processes, your life. Each project you tackle breathes life into our curiosity.
So- post more about your daily doings. Yes- we are happy to hear that you wrapped miles of floss around clothespins. Tell us what you stumbled across today. Your plans, your musings, your world. And let us come along for the ride! (That's the best part)

J. Anthony Stubblefield said...

Very beautiful. I am fascinated with your covered stones. The textures are so organic.

I suppose I like to be surprised with the blogs I follow. I like to learn something new or interesting that I didn't even know existed.

I am partial to tutorials though. I have printed out your felt poinsettia tutorial and want to try one.

Gordana.M said...

Lisa, this stone reminds me of corals (brain refusing to accept the white stuff ;) and beautiful beach finds that are endless in their textures and feel, and glisten with water drops - just like your seed beads :)
What I would like is to live closer to you and join you on your foraging trips. What delights me with the piece I have from you is the feel under my fingers, smoothness of wood, softness of wool. So, in ideal life, i would be there to feel all the textures of your world, personally. Now, how are you going to translate this into your blog - no idea ;) Hug, Gordana

Maryann said...

I live in Florida, so your beautiful rock would add a touch of a snowy winter to my home and a chance to touch and feel your work. I love your foraging photos and I am intrigued by your crafts. More tutorials would be great but mostly just keep doing and growing as you are! I am amazed on how focused you are on your particular craft...it inspires me to try to focus and find something that I am good at and stick with it. Thank you for being you!

floatingink said...

This is beautiful, a really lovely thing. If it's all the same to you, though, you can keep the actual snow--we don't want it over here in Connecticut.

Count me as one who loves your work and your blog--just keep on keeping on!

Sonnentaucher Filzlinge said...

Die Steine sind ein Traum....ganz große Kunst ;O)
Wann zaubern Sie diese schönen Dinge ??
Ihr Block ist vielseitig, ich bin noch lange nicht fertig ihn durchzulesen...weitermachen..
ich schaue gerne vorbei...Liebe Grüße Jana

susan christensen said...

I really like your covered stones, Lisa! My favorite posts are the ones that show the extraordinary-ness of your daily life, and all the ways your creativity shines. Well, I guess that is every post, so no help here! love, sus

ecokaren said...

The fact that Betz is leaving you a comment, you are doing everything right sista! No need to change. Why fix what's not broken?

Wait. You go FIND things to fix or break (or age) new things. I forgot. What was I thinking???

(And what's up with my getting these word verifications wrong today?!!?!!)

Anonymous said...

Lisa, that stone is absolutely amazing! One of these days I am going to have to try and do one. I don't know what to suggest to you - you come up with so much on your own. I love your tutorials - thank you so much for being willing to share them! Since my job as a naturalist takes me outdoors with kids of all ages I love that so many of your projects include nature inspired crafting. Keep up the fantastic job you are doing!

Everything you make is perfect!!
Love your beautiful stone..
I would love to see needle felting goodies..

delinqious said...

I would love to see more tutorials & especially a tutorial for some of those beautiful stitches you add to your felted stones! They're beautiful :]

filzquadrat said...

i would like to see another nature-experiment like the coloured acorns in the forest!
(and: what has happened to the last few acorns?)

Jude said...

What a gorgeous creation.

I would like to see more tutorials, but, more than anything, I just like seeing your amazing creativity in action. You are consistently the blogger I find most amazing in terms of creativity and handmade items of beauty.

So, basically, more of you being you.

Chelsea said...

I really love the natural dying posts. I also love seeing what you find in the woods around your house. And, I really love the tiny, intricate details that you are able to document and illustrate, and narrate. Priceless.

Love!

BlackStar said...

Lisa, I LOVE that stone. It reminds me of coral.
I don't really have one thing that I'd like to see more of. Everything you post is a feast for the eyes. You've become my 'go to' blog when I'm looking for directions. I think to myself "I wonder if Lisa has a post about this"? I marked a natural dye post a while back.

We got a dusting of snow in TN yesteday. Hoping for more.

Sally said...

SOOOOOOOOOOO beautiful! Lisa, just keep making what you want to make and taking pictures to show us. You inspire me. Thank you!

CatherineinFrance said...

Your blog is full of inspiration for me (I pinched your idea of felted stones and offer them to my friends who ooooh and aaaaaaah at the sight of them). Anything woollen or wooden will do. I hope I had such an imagination as yours !

Cynthia Nicole said...

Hi Lisa- Everything you do interests me. As I've said before, you are in my top 5 favorite artist bloggers. I am curious about how you construct the felted scenes in wood, but I figure that's your artist secret. thanks for all of it! -Cindy

Bunny said...

Would love to be in the drawing. I have just found your blog recently. I love your visuals. It is easy to read and always so pleasing to the eye. Your work is so creative and inspirational. I would enjoy seeing anything you post and am now a follower.

girlunwinding said...

Well that is about the prettiest piece of textural art I have seen! just gorgeous.
I would like to see some more tutorials. You have such a creative and crafty way about you I would love to learn some of your tips and tricks.
Thanks!
Dawn

Lee said...

Dear Lisa, I would love to add this stone to my treasures. Your work is beautiful and inspiring. Keep on keeping on what you are doing! I would like more tutorials- for example, seeing your felted embroidery appliques with felt "scraps" - I have read felting techniques online and tried them, but my results are not the same-- is it because I have a front-end washer? I would also like to see you create some buttons- felted, embroidered, scenes, clay, wood, carved, beaded, etc.! Thank you, LeeW

Blue Dragon Arts said...

I love your stones and can't see enough of them!

rmj318 said...

what a beautiful piece of art. I am a new follower but your blog inspires me to think outside the box and experiment with materials. I am in awe!

Chrissieday said...

more natural dying and amore stones then I may actually get one form the shop.
brill blog so whatever is always a good post

Anonymous said...

This is really gorgeous. I really love the textures. It is really very beautiful.

Megan P said...

Your snow stone is beautiful! I love the texture and use of various materials. I really appreciate your tutorials in addition to your forage expedition finds/creations! :-)

Anne said...

I love all your posts, but tutorials are always a favorite,even though my finished products are a poor rendition of what you do!

Lorena said...

Muy bella,como siempre Ud. nos recrea con sus lindos trabajos manuales....El blanco y las texturas hacen de esta piedra un adorno muy elegante y sutil....
le envio muchos cariños y que sigan sus exitos!!!!

Tracy said...

Lisa, I enjoy your blog just as it is! There is a nice balance of all the things I am interested in. In December I especially enjoyed your posts on dress-tweaking and making gifts for your daughter. Perhaps more on repurposing, which clearly is a talent of yours, it takes a special kind of vision.
I was fortunate to have been able to purchase one of your charming tiny acorn ornaments with the mushroom inside and gave it to my daughter as a solstice gift. As we were taking down the tree, she deemed it to special to put away, its one we plan to enjoy all year.

laura morris said...

i recently became the proud and ever so lucky owner of one of your precious felted acorns. i would love to win one of your textural stones to add to my collection.
i love all your posts and look forward to reading them daily. i use acorns and other organics in my own medium (metals) and so i would love to see more acorn and mushroom creations!!!
thank you for sharing and happy creating!!!

srsaeaa@gmail.com said...

I so enjoy *all* of your posts. In my heart of hearts, I wish you could either clone yourself (so you would have more time to make beautiful objets d'art for your shop) or that you'd move to Alaska and be my next-door neighbor! : )

pwbrown said...

I would like to see some sculpting of other natural structures such as a "turkey Tail" fungus...what do you think?

pwbrown said...

This is the image of a turkey tail that i previously suggested to use as inspiration

I quite enjoy seeing this needlework that takes inspiration from the natural world. I'd love to see more needlework on stones showing lichen patterns, perhaps tutorials on fancy stitches. I'd love to hear more about mushrooms and foraging too. My favorite part of your blog is hearing specifically what sparks your impulse or whim to create your pieces. Thanks so much for sharing with all of us!

Wendy said...

Sorry, my name didn't show up in my comment. :P

Chiska said...

That's gorgeous! What would I like to see more of on your blog? Just whatever it is that you're doing--all that you listed is interesting. What I love the most about coming here is that it's always something different. So I guess for me keep sharing it all. Thanks for the chance!

bluekaeru said...

That stone is lovely. I love the tone on tone play of the textures. I enjoy most of your posts but would always enjoy more tutorials and ornaments.

lynda Howells said...

I would LOVE to win this most amazing snow stone, it is exquisite.xx What do you need to do, change.....actually nothing. I love your work, the way you photograph it and describe it to us. I love the way you openly show us how you do things. I love the way you show us your family and are so proud of them. You are great at doing the "green" thing and showing how to alter things, such as your jumper to fit your daughter and decorate it so beautifully I could go on and on..you asked for feed back ...l can only give you good feed back. I suppose what l look forward to is your happy, informative and beautifully present blog. Is there anything missing...not that l can see..just carry on doing what you are doing and 2012 will be a great year for youxxlynda

Paola said...

The stone is stunning! I've only recently begun reading your blog, and I must say I enjoy every single post. I'm particularly interested in your natural dyeing experiments, your interactions with nature, following your work process and also how you combine work/art with family life. And although I admire all that I've seen in your shop, I'd be especially thrilled if I managed to secure one of your felted landscape brooches, they are truly breathtaking.

kathy taylor said...

More natural dye, tutorials and foraging. I do love ALL you post, though.

Sorana said...

I am always trying to learn new things, so more tutorials. Actually more of everything you do - you are amazing, a true inspiration. Hugs from "Chill Town"!

Tracy said...

I too love all your posts, pics and especially the anecdotes of daily life. I would love to see more of your mushroom/lichen sculpture under glass with vintage book or variations thereof...fabulous!
Peace and blessings
Keep up the inspiring....(:
Tracy

Osagegypsy said...

I love your blog. Your little purple sweater is inspired! and your stones are awesome, so unique. I really think we are twins separated at birth, but don't worry i won't stalk you. ;-) You are much younger, and more creative. Pick me! i'm so embarrassed....

marie said...

I discovered your blog on Pinterest several months ago when I "pinned" your textural wool stones...fabulous by the way! I love all the things you create with supplies from nature. That would be my favorite feature. I love things you make from re-purposed wool like the sweater in your last post. Also felt and felting. Your blog is one of my very favorites and I'm so glad I discovered it.

Thanks for the chance in your giveaway!!

Tree Dellinger said...

Frankly I think you could take pictures of a compost pile and make it into an inspiring blog post.

I like hearing about your creative processes regardless of what your current project might be. Tells us more about what inspires you, what prompted you to try a new project, and even how somethings just don't turn out the way you had planned (whether for the good or the bad). And, if it's not too personal, tell us more about the business side of your crafting. There are many very talented crafters who blog, but relatively few of them are upfront about what didn't work for them, the project that failed, or obstacles they face in their shop.

dylagence said...

Your "found" things and creative ways of using them appeal to me on such a grounded and beautiful level. We seem to have all the same interests. Felting is something I'd like to see more of. Repurposing is also so smart and fun.
Thanks for the chance to win the lovely stone.

jojo said...

j aime tout mais surtout les tutos
ce que tu fais est superbe bisesssssssssssssssss

Jorin said...

Lisa, I love your stones, all of them. For that, I'm very happy about your giveaway, it is great! And I love all what you make out of natural things (for example your birch barks) and your photos you take of your work. Like some of the others, I think there is no need to change anything exept of the things that you want to change or that change because of your personal developpement. That's life.
Jorin

Margie Oomen said...

i would love to see you explore more of your aboriginal ancestral roots with art and craft inspired by that.
But of course you know I am your number one fan and love each and everything you create.
I love your sense of humor so much too.
I also want to see you involved in an art show and I might just have a proposition for you soon.
xo

wintunancy said...

As I am new to your blog I am not sure what to say...so far I have been interested in everything that I have seen, so whatever you do will be fun for me. Thanks so much for the giveaway. I am intrigued by stones and the creative things people do with them.

Denice Barker said...

Well, I've never seen anything like this stone. I've just discovered your blog and as I travel through past postings I'm just amazed at your imagination, workmanship and ability to find a way into the natural world around you. Stunning.
I'd like to see tutorials so I could fool myself into trying to do something like you do. But really, if pressed, I'd say keep up the variety.
Amazing!

coffeeforkatya said...

your blog keeps me sane some days. i miss living in the country with the ability to instantly escape to nature. one day, i'll move back. but until then, i have this.

i would love to see more forages into those beautiful surroundings of yours. i'd love to see more in your workspace (a very intimate place, i know.) and i'd love to see more natural dyeing.

but really, i love everything that you post.

4camie said...

Love it! Reminds me of the 1st snow of the season; crisp, clean and such amazing detail as a snowflake. Your attention to detail if phenomenal. I enjoy the tutorials and would definitely love to be able to shop more in your shop and learn some skills.

Glo said...

Because eclecticism is perhaps my biggest weakness, I love the mix you have been providing so far

Els said...

Ha Lisa, what a wonderful gem that stone of yours is !!! The stitching is so delicate !
(I see that a LOT of people agree to that ;-) !!!)
Winter hasn't arrived here (yet?) nature is a bit too early here : a hedgehock woken up in the garden already, hope he finds a save spot if winter might arrive after all ...

bonsoir je laisse un com je l'ai déjà admiré cette pierre je dis que j'adore!!mais j'ai pas beaucoup de chance !!!!bonne chance a tous
votre blog est une de mes plus belles découvertes!!

Jennifer Wilson said...

I love the way you take natural items, and breathe into them a totally new look. I am infatuated with your stones but am never quick enough to purchase them in your shop!
A chance to win one in your give-away would be great!

I love your blog as it is. I am getting to know Lisa the artist, the creator, the thinker outside of the box. Your photos are great too.

I am in awe of the creative output you have with small children, tasks, and rural living! You are an inspiration.

Kitten's Lost Her Mittens said...

Oh, I would so love to win this beautiful snow stone! Thank you so much for the chance.
I love the content of your blog! I hope that this year you might make more of those wonderful acorn ornaments with the mushroom in it. I so wanted one this year, and I was too late. :(
Thanks again for the giveaway!
x Katherine

Lisa said...

love the tutorials, love love the foraging, love the chickens and love that you share tidbits of your children along with your adventures...your wood turning, their stories of where they came from... come on you are crazy talented and we all want your store filled up remember we all love to shop ahead!

Anonymous said...

I`m a Norwegian living in Belgium, and I am missing the snow... I would love to cherish your beautiful snow stone!
I like everything in your blogg. Your beautiful pictures, your love and respect of nature, your passion for what you are creating, your project with your children, the tutorials and all your beautiful creations. My wish is that you will continue just like you are doing, and let us be a part of it! From my heart, Benedicte

momma rae said...

i really like seeing what YOU come up with! i would love to see more of your woodworking though. this stone is gorgeous!

Rhymes With Magic said...

I love your use of natural materials to make art. I don't mind what you do to stones, wood, or felt. Keep it up. You are doing wonderful things!

Rita said...

Please enter me also! That stone is so beautiful and it reminds me of beach stones with barnicles ... I just want to touch it!

As I just found your blog the other day I have to say I'd like more of everything! I have to look at your related post about felted stones right now, they're so pretty.

curlygirlpress said...

Not to be wishy-washy, but keep up the wide variety of interesting and inspiring posts - felting, wood work, foraging, photography, crafts for your littles, your thoughts and ideas - it's all good. = ) (p.s. my critters would love to have a conversation with a wintery wonderland stone!)

tami said...

Oh the beauty! We were blessed with a few snow flurries today.....so uplifting. I love your felting and embroidery. And I could never get enough of any of your work involving acorns or mushrooms. Your holiday ornaments were the cutest things ever! I'm constantly in awe of your talent.

Ellen L said...

I enjoy all your posts and beautiful photographs. More tutorials would be great. I love the stones, would like to win such a special work of art.

Maggie Mae said...

I am throughly enjoying your blog. I love your foraging walks in the woods. Nature is amazing!

I like tutorials.

I love all the wool felting that you make! In fact, I have been wondering if you do wholesale orders so I could sell your art in my shop.

Keep up the great work.

Lacey said...

Oh, I love your tutorials. I don't always do them, but they always set me on fire with intention to do them. :D Sometimes in my hectic life, that's enough. The desire to want to craft a beautiful item. The time to do it is sometimes the thing that is lacking.

I also love ornaments. Those are always easy to justify...hehehe. I managed to get one of your little acorns. :D

It might also be cool if you made little "stones" from your wood. I love finding flat river stones, but it might be cool to have a flat wooden stone at well. Something like a worry stone. But not really to worry. Just to be beautiful and remind me of the beauty outside when I'm stuck inside. Wow, I feel like I'm placing a special order all of a sudden! hahha

And it would be an honor to win your snow stone.

panthercreekcottage said...

My first visit to your blog and wowee, a giveaway! And a beauty at that. I've had a looky loo at your tutorials and absolutely love them. I have been trying my hand at some natural dyeing lately and would love to learn more about your processes. I enjoy collecting stones here and there. Simple gray ones with interesting shapes. A snow stone would be a lovely addition. :)

Sue A said...

I would love to win this beautiful textual stone. As far as your blog, I always like to see tutorials. Any time you are willing to share your techniques for creating such beautiful things, I would love it. I too appreciate the natural world around us. I'm always bringing interesting bits into the house. Happy creating!

I've only just found you, but I love your style - love nature, stones, texture, fibres, seedpods.. all the stuff you're doing, so keep on doing what you're doing!

Mousy Brown said...

I love the way you do it now...a variety of things that are all as interesting as each other! I enjoy the crafting posts and especially the clever things you up-cycle but I also enjoy your foraging and just your photo's....my feedback would be please carry on doing what you are doing - it's great! :D

busy at home said...

love the walks in the woods and the tutorials :-)

Laura said...

Tough question! I love what you do now! Maybe some tips on working with "homemade" felt (ie. from old clothes). Love the ornaments! Keep them coming! Felted brooches are always amazing too. Maybe pictures of how your work evolves - from roving to finished object?
Thanks for the great giveaway!

Amy said...

Lovely snow stone!

What would I like from your blog in the coming year? My favorites of your posts are foraging ones, natural dyeing ones, you take some of my favorite woods photos on the web and I love how you show me new ways too look at the natural resources for crafting.

spread your wings said...

this is an amazing piece. i'm pretty new to your blog so I don't really know what I'd like to see more of. I just know I love everything I've ever seen here on your blog and on your flickr post. You do such beautiful work.

Lois said...

Your snow stone is beautiful. I really have enjoyed all your blogs. They are so inspiring. I really enjoyed the one showing the doll bed that you made. The felting ones are great as well. Your pictures of life around you and your family make me wish for the days when I wasn't cooped up at work.

This is My Life said...

I think your blog is perfect the way it is, but I do always love tutorials.

casey said...

I love your foraging posts!

Kim said...

I'm always so inspired by all of your posts and am continually awed by your creativity. If anything I would love to see more tutorials especially concerning all things felted. I do really enjoy the variety of your posts however and am always excited to see what you're up to. I check your blog every day. By the way, the idea you had to give a heads up and announce the shop updates ahead of time was genius and so helpful.

Brittany said...

Lisa, I love everything you write about. And I've been loving the stones you're making lately. They're beautiful! My favorite posts from you are always a.) what you've been dyeing lately, and b.) what you've been making/stitching/felting lately.

Love from the Mitten.

Mariah said...

Wow, thanks for the opportunity to win! What wonderful things you make!!

Mattie van den Heuvel said...

I love your blog as it is! With the beautiful Photos and the lovely things you make. I specially like the things you make from things you find on your walks. They are like magic!
Thanx for sharing!

Mona said...

I wouldn't like your blog otherwise than it is. It must be exactly what you want to and you must do and create whatever makes you happy!!
And the same goes for your shop. But I suppose you'd like more than that ;)
Well, I think your wooden/woolen necklaces and brooches are very special and not like any I've seen anywhere else. Looking at what you make with wood and wool makes me feel so good. And wearing the one (and most exquisite one you've made) that I bought from you is such a joy. I've never received as many compliments and questions about my jewelry as I do with the necklace you've made. I'd relly love to see more of those :)

Melissa said...

GAsp what a fantastic give-away, I have been wanting to buy one, but alas I'm not fast enough :) I would love to see more tutorials on natural dyeing. I love wool and have a source for free raw wool and I would love to card it and dye it myself.

Wow! Lucky person who wins this beautiful artful stone.

I love your tutorials and foraging. Your blog inspires, so I guess I'd say, keep it up! I really enjoy the photos of your outdoor finds that inspire crafted items. I've used a couple of the tutorials and had great success. Thank you!

Happy 2012.

The stone is gorgeous, as is all of your felt work. I also enjoy a lot your 'make do' posts, transforming found or thrifted objects in toys, new clothes or objects of beauty.
Thank you for sharing glimpses of your life.

Hi Lisa, I love reading your blog each day - not only do you give me lots of inspiration and sometimes lots of giggles (I still laugh at the photo of your chook with a scarf on!), but I love your outlook on life, nature, family and craft! I would love to be able to learn more from you - so more tutorials - actually more of everything! I love it all, and I'm a huge mushroom freak too! I think your felted work is absolutely stunning, so yes, I would love to win one! Thank you for sharing your life with me each day! Cheers, Kaye

I would love to see anything you can show, but tutorials are especially wonderful. As is anything to do with felting. I just love your work. Thanks for sharing it with us on this blog.

When I opened up the notification of your new posting, in a matter of moments, I was in awe of the stone! I would love to see more tutorials, more MN wanderings (I'm a MN gal), and your creativeness. Yes, please enter me in the drawing. Lori
