The first annual woolery.com weave off has some very inspirational towels to drool over!

thewooleryguy

What an adventure! We are pleased to present the winners of the first Woolery Weave-Off! Inundated with over 75 amazingly beautiful, diverse towels, we struggled to keep judging deadlines, and are still working on washing and folding all the entries for delivery! Next week, we will be delivering them to The Simon House, where they’ll go into ‘starter baskets’ that provide basic household supplies to the ladies moving out into their own housing! Without further ado…

Knitting Mice; Handmade Plushies

20130515-131212.jpg

This spring I came down with a bug, a knitting bug! I scored a bunch of fabulous multi-colored yarns in exciting and punchy colors at my local craft store and a wonder knitter, since then it’s been so much fun!

From coasters to little furbabies (mouse stuffies) I’ve been knitting away and having a blast. And for whatever reason i only ever get the urge to knit when the weather is warm so scarves are out of the question, haha!

Since I can’t read a pattern to save my life I always come up with my own! Rules are meant to be broken. I am also working on a rug, slowly it will emerge and hopefully that will be my next post!
Have a lovely day!

Hello from the new UpStartArt Blog!

20110602-052055.jpg

Welcome to UpStartArt Blog! I’ll be your resident UpStart bringing you creations of my own and inspirational snippets from all over the web and my own local surroundings! From paper to leather, vintage or new, I love it all. So many things can easily brighten a creative moment for me or give me the inspiration I need to get my rear in gear on a project. Maybe some of the things that get me up and going can help you too!

Be an UpStart and let’s all get up and start some Art!

Fondest Wishes To You,
Jessanne
