Needle felted Christmas ornaments – the grumpy cat and the hysterical cat

Back in the day when I started needle felting these kittens, they were all inspired by one cat, my sisters crazy huge black tabby named Joker. He did not hold back. At all. It was really inspiring, the concentration, the spirit! He would spend the whole day trying to get to the top of the cupboard, just to tip over an empty bottle stacked there and then leave. He thought he owned everything, mostly because he did, at some point. He did not appreciate it if things started going the other direction than he had planned, but he got over it pretty quickly. Although it obviously can ruin someone’s spirit if he is lifted out of the jewelry box sooner than planned, but you have to stay positive, there are a ton of other stuff to wreck, everywhere. Step back and look at the wider picture.

Surprise Christmas Ornament – The Needle Felted Angler fish

Needle felted Christmas ornaments are great because they are light and you can fill the tree with them without making it heavy.

The only thing that must be noted, your cat may have extra interest in it because it’s 100% natural lamb wool and the wool scent may give her flashbacks and bring up the urge to kill. Like a yarn ball does.

An angler fish for the geekery Christmas:

Needle felted Christmas ornaments – snowmen

Once upon a time, when it was the time of many snowflakes and a bit of warmer temperature than usual. While unique and beautiful, no falling snowflake shall stand alone! Together, they will become a snowman. True story, I cry every time.

Inktober ends, time to hibernate for a year

Happy Halloween and somehow Inktober 2016 has ended so quickly!

I hope everyone who enjoys drawing knows about this challenge already, if you don’t then put it into your calendar for the next year to draw one ink drawing a day for the entire month of October. Each day has a preset theme, you need to google it then. It’s fun, I promise :3

Peipsi tint. Taking my own ink to the ocean. But it’s a lake instead.

Peipsi tint (Osmerus eperlanus morfa spirinchus) is a fish that lives very happily in the great lake of Peipsi, in the East part of Estonia. My word, I get it, Peipsi has the best beaches, especially in the northern side. Best meaning here that it’s very slowly getting deeper, there are hardly any people there and it’s so clean. Not sure if someone cleans it or it just stays like this, but never seen even a cigarette butt out there. Maybe the Peipsi tint eats it.

Oh and now I’ve missed out on a perfectly good pun too, because Peipsi is the lake,  “tint” also means “ink” in Estonian and I was out there at the Peipsi shore painting with inks.
Moment of silence for the pun.

But here we go, off to the next topic and that is house cafes. We had a coffee and a cake at the cutest one in Kallaste. If you happen to go see the sandstone cliff (you know that awkward moment when there’s that time when you have to call a 4 meter sandstone exposure a cliff to get a feeling you went and saw something) at Kallaste town, you can find the Anna cafe and hostel near the crossroad and it’s like a Russian theme house that is an experience (notice: Estonia is not Russia. Russia is different. But there are a lot of Estonian Russians living near the Peipsi lakes Estonian side and it’s a part of the areas culture and it’s interesting).
