I feel like I should write a journal since I haven't written one in such a long time. My life is awfully busy and I hardly get to felt anymore, but I've been trying something a little different. I always envy people who felt their own sort of made-up creatures, and I wanted to give it a shot at one point.
I was doodling and I came up with several different creatures, some terrifying, some not so much. My English teacher loves it when I doodle. XP Anywho, I like mixing a moose with anything. I feel like meese (ha!) have such a funny face and they're chill no matter what their body looks like (Fun self-esteem booster. Be a moose.) My two favorites are Spider-moose and Moose-bird. I felted Moose-bird yesterday, and I was going to felt Spider-moose today, but I don't have enough brown wool.
Thinking about opening a shop on Etsy. I'll think about it more after Christmas when my life is considerably less hectic and I have some time off school to consider all these things. Mentally, I am dead, and I need to get my life back together at some point. It has only been recently that I'm even feeling well enough to felt, because you can't put the same life into your felties when you're sad.
On the whole premise of the weird creatures and my English teacher, she told me that maybe someday we could do a childrens' book together, me illustrating. I know that that's probably a long shot, but it's always been a dream of mine to illustrate a picture book. I'll do it someday, I really hope.
Lastly, it's almost my birthday! Not that that's relevant; I'm just really excited. I like saying things whether or not I know someone will listen because I need to get words out of my head. That said, there's my life! (Or at least the artistic side.)
