Some might find she&nbsp;looks a bit ghostly, eerie even,&nbsp;I think she is just true and primer to nature , but a nature put to sleep with the &quot;fire inside&quot; waiting to give its bloomings. Winter.

Difficult to keep up on every front.</p> <p> I&nbsp;also happen to have a kid who was born on the 22nd, and as&nbsp;I am basically a maker of things,&nbsp;I usually use all my creativity to fabricate a toy of my own, that will pass the child test, !</p> <p> This year she got a tree house with a familly of little bendy dolls. She is seven years old. And she loved it so much&nbsp;it was worth the hours spent away from my felting needle!</p> <p> I&nbsp;hope you had the immense priviledge to be surrounded by your loved ones by the end of this year, and enjoy the warmth coming from true love.</p> <p> I&nbsp;wish you many many joyful and meaningful events for the coming year. And if you happen to be patient as you were and still visit me from time to time on this place,&nbsp;I hope your spirit be uplifted by my little creations as frivolous and kind they&nbsp;should be.</p> <p> Merry Christmas and Happy New Year 2015!</p> <p> &nbsp;</p> <div content-type="media" style="width: 100%; text-align: left; margin-top: 10px; margin-bottom: 10px;"> <img height="1772" original-height="952" original-width="714" src="http://static.wixstatic.com/media/5ef05e_c3138fab49e54a6f88a19cf0679a8c26.jpg" style="border: 0px currentColor; width: 714px; height: 952px; display: inline;" width="1329" /></div> <p> &nbsp;</p> <p> &nbsp;</p> <p> &nbsp;</p> <p> &nbsp;</p> <p> &nbsp;</p> Thu, 25 Dec 2014 12:45:18 GMT ccdc4908-d52d-4f76-8d89-a3fb2772b819 Shay http://feltoohlala.wix.com/feltoohlala/apps/blog/shay <p> Here she is , my shooting star!</p> <p> Some little doll just feel special.</p> <p> This one, with her grace and her crown on her head, happens to even be pretty!
