Today I am featuring the
Needle Felted Artwork
 Created by:
Marina Lubomirsky of
Golden Thread Design

I am just amazed at Marina's Needle Felted Artwork!

I am happy to feature her work here today.

Here's what the Artist says about her work:
My name is Marina, and I create handmade, unique and original felt art and jewelry, inspired by nature. The felt art I create is enhanced with texture, depth, rich colors and the unique warmth of wool. My jewelry is fashioned with great attention to detail and the highest artistic quality. I take great delight in seeing the enjoyment that my art brings to others.

 My Little Garden in Israel
An original needle felted wool painting. I was inspired by my beautiful little garden in the back of my house here in Israel. The sun is so warm and the garden is blooming. My younger children help me take care of it. I tried to depict the warmth and beauty of this amazing land.

Girl Gathering Poppies in the Field
This is an original needle felted "wool painting". An image of a girl walking throw the field of poppies and gathering them on the way. This wool painting is created with the finest Shetland and Merino wool. No drawing or glue was used to make this - it's all intuitive, made spontaneously with a special needle. Definitely one of a kind.

A Winter Wedding!

A Custom Made Cake Topper I created for a Winter Wedding!  Instead of holding a bouquet of flowers, this bride has her hands in a warm fur muff, decorated with a little white bow.  The little Puggles are dressed in their little winter coats, each with their name on them.  The base is made with white clay with glitter added, and it sparkles like beautiful snow.

A Gingerbread Couple!

Inspired by a friend and fellow blogger, Sher from Sher Hasting Designs, when she shared her wonderful Gingerbread designs on her blog, I created this adorable Gingerbread Couple!  I imagined a magical holiday sort of feel to the topper.  In keeping with that idea, I used white clay, with glitter mixed in, to create the base.  It glistens like newly fallen snow, so pretty.  A garland of holly leaves, berries, and little hearts decorate the edge of the base and two tiny candy canes sit right in the middle.  The Gingerbread Man is wearing a top hat decorated with holly leaves and berries and the Gingerbread Girl is wearing a great big red bow and is holding holly in her hand.  Mica powder was used to make the holly leaves and berries shimmer.  The sweet expressions on their faces show just how happy and festive they feel!  Perfect for a winter wedding, a holiday party, or a gift for someone special...  A keepsake to enjoy!

  .¸.•´¸.•*´¨) ¸.•*¨)

That Look...

Oh my goodness... Some days, well ALL days actually, it's so difficult to leave the house with this little one looking at you!  When we have to leave and she has to stay, she can really pour on the guilt with THAT LOOK!  But she forgives us for having to leave her home, and she wiggles and waggles and is so excited when she sees us again!  It's like she hasn't seen us in many, many days!!  In fact, if we leave the room for just a little bit, we get that same wiggly reaction when we return!  LOL!  Dear sweet Emmi!  Don't our babies bring us lots of joy and love?!  :)  

As you can tell, she spends a lot of time laying on the back of the couch looking out the window... It's her favorite place to spend time.  There are a lot of birds, chipmunks, squirrels... And living here, there's also a lot of raccoons, opossum, bunnies... Izzie and Emmi keep each other company while we are out, and they keep busy watching out for critters.  Izzie's not allowed on the couch, but she jumps right up there when no-one is looking and then jumps right down when someone re-enters the room.  She thinks she has us fooled, but her white hair gives her away every time!  That look Emmi gives us... We always get a similar look from Izzie when we leave the house, but we don't get the same wiggly reaction when we get home, she just barks, and boy that one can bark LOUD!

Yup, that's Izzie's LOOK! 

 .¸.•´¸.•*´¨) ¸.•*¨)

Sports Theme Wedding Cake Topper

In a previous post, I shared a wedding cake topper that I made where I incorporated the couple's hobbies, (you can see that post HERE) and today I am sharing a wedding cake topper that incorporates their love for their sports teams!  Just like creating a topper including a couple's hobbies, making a sport theme topper, that's special to the couple, makes it unique and one-of-a-kind too!  This topper is an example of just that!  It's one of my most recent wedding cake toppers, and was such fun to create.

For this Sports Theme Wedding Cake Topper the couple LOVES Football but I can customize the jersey's for any sport you'd like.  The bride and groom are wearing their team jersey's over their wedding attire. The bride isn't carrying a bouquet, but one can be added if you'd like. They are posed on a base made to look like they are standing on the 50 Yard Line of a Football Field. It's 3 1/2" round and they are approximately 5" tall.  

 Each is lovingly handmade by me, they are made to be one of a kind toppers and 
keepsakes to be enjoyed for years to come.  :)
