Happy Birthday Life in a Bell Jar!

20 Jan

It’s my blog’s first birthday!  Hooray!  It has been a great year!  So far I’ve made a total of 12 themed ball jars, more than a dozen mice, and a handful of gnomes.  Not bad for a total newbie!  To be honest, before 2011, I didn’t even know how to make the mice and gnomes.  Now I love the craft so much, I can’t think of letting a week pass by without needle felting.

What’s in store for 2012?  More fun themes, quirky mice and gnomes, and The Life in a Bell Jar Mice & Gnomes Adoption Agency!

By the way, I like you to meet Bailey, a dumbo mouse.  Catch his balancing act soon!

    Curious… have you thought of putting together a calendar of your lovely photos? Say on even as a no cost upfront kind of trial?

    Happy belated Birthday to your blog, I am totally inspired by your work and look forward to lots more. Am an avid follower of your blog, and your creatures have encouraged me to buy some needles to try out needleflelting. I have a calling to make a squirrel for my blog banner!
