Custom 1/12 scale felted animals on a movable metal wire armature

My love for miniatures, animals and dolls has always been very strong. Drawing, sculpting and animation are also part of my passions. Since I am an eternal kid inside, I like to move and play with my miniatures which lead me to learn needle felting so that I can make movable scupltures on a metal armature. My sculptures can take many positions and are made from a mix of wool and silk. They are 1/12 scale and are made to fit in any dollhouse scene. I simply love to do custom sculptures of people's pets and am always looking forward to a new challenge. I also started to make ball jointed dolls which has been a passion of mine since I can remember. I am open for commissions, please contact me should you have any questions or comments.

A trade with Judy Blondell!

For those of you who are familiar with this blog, you already know how much I admire Judy Blondell's miniatures...

When I went to the miniature show of Toronto last weekend I had the chance to talk to Liz of Grandpa's dollhouse who remebered how crasy I am over Judith's work. She told me that she was going to be at the show on sunday and that I could meet her. I went crasy! Just to make me crasier, she informs me that she was also interested in making a trade with me because she really liked the little felted Shih-tzu that Liz bought from me. It was too good to be truth and I could barely contain my joy. Good thing we were staying the night and that I had a couple of my felted animals with me! Next time I won't forget the business cards...

The next day I met her and she was soooo sweet. She showed me the shoes that she had brought with her. All were amazing but two of them were exactly the type I liked but I was too excited to even think. I showed her my felted animals and very fast, she took one of my long haired Shih-tzu and put in my hands two gorgeous pair of shoes... And guess what, they were the ones I really liked! How did she know? I could not control myself and did an embarassing happy dance... Hope she didn't think I was too crazy... 

Here are my newest additions to my Blondell collection:

If it wasn't for Liz, none of this would have happened, and I am very gratefull! She is simply the greatest! Thanks Liz!

I was talking to Judy about the possibility of making a replica of my wedding pumps and my husband's shoes and she agreed to make them! I can't wait! I mentionned that one of my projects was to make a replica of my wedding dress and she said that she could do that too. Wow, I can't wait to see how beautifull it will all be!! What a great miniature filled day! Now gotta go back to make more felties!
