"My work is inspired by nature and fairy tales and made for imaginary play. The main techniques I use are needle felting and wet felting, often combined. It usually takes me several hours to finish one of my carefully crafted pieces, and much attention is put into the details. I am self-taught, and I am continuously enjoying experimenting and learning!" ~ Jelena

New Hampshire Nature
New Hampshire Nature offers natural rustic decor and natural craft supplies such as birch bark, acorns, pinecones and more for crafters who are also inspired by nature!
"Nature inspires us to create! I enjoy collecting birch bark, wood, lichen and fungi from naturally fallen trees on my mountainside woodlot. I seasonally harvest acorns, nuts and pinecones and other natural objects I find in the forest. I use these natural elements to create my own crafts. I also sell my products to people who are looking to create their own art from nature." ~ Patty
White Line Cards
White Line Cards offers handmade white line woodcut prints on note cards and playing cards.
Devised by Provincetown artists in the early 1900’s, the white-line method involves incising a woodblock with a design, hand-painting each shape on the block, and transferring color to paper using a handheld baren. My prints are editioned multis done one at a time and are subtly unique in coloring. I love offering cards with images of my white line woodcut prints, all handmade in Jaffrey, NH.
