Invisible Child

There are more than 22,000 homeless children in New York, the highest number since the Great Depression. This is one of their stories.


promise rain

Some time back last year, I made a bunch of felted raindrops which I had planned to make a toy mobile with (see post). It took a bit of experimentation, and a lot of willpower to overcome my inertia, but I finally completed it! It’s called promise rain, inspired by Isaiah 44:3. How precious, the promise of rain is, a gift bringing forth life and blessing.

meet the family’s been 2 months in my (metaphorical) workshop! Yes, I’ve been busy experimenting, as well as finding lots of stuff to up-cycle. But I’ve also been expanding my family of little square creatures. Introducing…

Here’s a little family history.
Vintor (not in photo) has been given away to a good home in Tasmania, to my very own baby niece! As for Herbie, due to his amiable nature, I’ve gotten a couple of requests, so he now has two ‘descendants’. Next, we have Megamind, cos you know, he is a giant blue head. Then we have Oscar, who is by no means a grouch; he’s really a dark grey softie. Finally, little Bumble Bee, super quiet and shy, but irresistible all the same.

Here’s the deal. I’m looking for good homes for these babies, for any donation* (I was going to sell them for S$14) but I’ve decided otherwise. It feels a little cruel selling them… So if you are wanting to adopt any, post a comment or something. Note: All the Herbies are taken.
