Holiday Showcase: Amarama Art

What kinds of fabulous goodies to you carry?

I am a fiber artist who loves to wool sculpt.
The simple answer is I can make almost anything out of wool and I always love a challenge!
I make a variety of wool sculpted items from hand needle felted mini sock monkeys, poseable dolls, masks, hats to miniatures of animals and they are all made from hand needle felting wool. I make original designs and never try to make the same thing twice. This way each person gets their own unique piece of art.

What inspires your work?

A little bit of everything in life inspires me. Which is the beauty of wool sculpting since I never feel stuck in just one area of creating.
My children are a big inspiration for my artwork as well as my husband, sister and all things fantasy or of a science fiction nature.

Why is handmade important to you?

When one buys something that someone has handmade, they are not only supporting a fellow artisan they are supporting someones innovation and passion that the artist has put into their item.
I grew up in a household where my father was a sculptor and my mother was the sole bread winner as a teacher. We had to make everything count and always had a high importance on gifts that we hand made for others or that we recieved. The reason for this was because these gifts were made from the heart to be shared with others. That is how I feel about items I make today and why I am proud of them. Consistent quality with a touch of love is something I always aim for in my art.

Share a handmade gift that anyone can do!

Something that is cheap and easy to use around your house for polishing wood furniture or for dusting are old panty hose. Just cut them into hand sized squares. They work great for also getting the dust off of the TV screen or the dashboard of ones car.

Homeschool Fun: Knights

It is going to be mostly pics today. We have had a fun start to knight week. Jayne played lego knights with his daddy and people knights too. We made puppets to play with all week long and Jayne has done great on his worksheets so far. There is also a new addition to our school! His name is Croci the crocodileand he is Jayne's new puppet friend for school. We were going to wait for Ziggy the Zebra with his all about reading class in the fall but he is to advanced for the level that Ziggy comes with so we let him choose a friend for himself. Now on to the pictures!

DIY Little Passports

Adam came up with the idea first and I loved it, then stressed about it, then hated it, then it really grew on me... I'm confusing, I know! We have been getting little passports in the mail for a few months now and Little Guy just loves it. We like it too, don't get me wrong, but for the $15 we are paying each month for the 2 year subscription we feel like we could do better. So the idea was this, let's make our own! I loved the idea, because we could do much cooler souvenirs and relate them to people that we know who have been there too. We could also go anywhere and better form them to what we are learning about. The part that stressed me out was that it meant doing a ton of research and writting the letters on top of everything a homeschool mom already does, I did not like that at all. Today I realized that I know a lot of people who have been to other countries. With their help I would have a launching point to write the letters and any kind of idea what kind of souven…

Bean Plant Experiment Finale

What did we learn? Sun and water give the best affect, of course. We also saw that water and sun are not equally important to plants. A plant can still grow and produce beans without water, albeit stunted. No sun and  the bean plant is doomed to death. Plants 1 and 2 both have bean pods growing now.
