Hi! My name’s Regina, and I run Felt Shmelt, home to my handmade needle-felted figurines, ornaments and home decor. I try to purchase most of the wool I use in my creations from vendors on Etsy – I focus on natural and hand-dyed wool, and love to pick up new colors here and there to add to my ever-growing wool basket.
The name “Felt Shmelt” was thought up by my loving and supportive fiance (and best friend of almost a decade), Greg – I live with him and our two awesome dogs, Wally, a Boston Terrier, and Buddy, a Chihuahua mix, in a suburb of Boston, Massachusetts.
I am so obsessed with Etsy, and was so excited the day I opened my shop! I’m learning a lot about running a small business, even though this all started out as (and still is) first and foremost a hobby. My evenings (and some early mornings!) are spent busily and happily needle felting while “watching” TV (eyes on the needles, Regina!) or listening to music or talk radio.
When I’m not working on new projects, I love taking walks with Greg and the pups around our beautiful town or getting together with friends and family. I also love just sitting in our cozy little apartment at the top of a hill in the middle of the woods, with a cup of coffee, watching the occasional deer stroll by. I am constantly amazed by our natural surroundings. I work a challenging 9-5 job, which I do enjoy, but I cherish the weekends, where I can spend hours needle felting and wake up to lazy Sunday morning breakfasts!
Anyway, thanks for stopping by my blog! I try to post daily on great new handmade finds or updates on my own creations. And if you have an idea for a needle felted figurine of your own, please feel free to contact me through my Etsy shop – I love custom orders! http://www.etsy.com/shop/FeltShmelt
