Lauren has a shop on Itsy that she updates about once a month, and she sends e-mails and notices of when the latest update will be, but I've still yet to get my hands on one of these little guys because they sell out so fast! She also makes cake toppers for weddings and can customize them to the match the couple. He designs were recently featured in a bridal magazine in Florida. Check out her blog for more fun pics and great trends. Her husband is a talented photographer and they take pics of the little guys in cute little settings and they just come alive!
I'm not sure how I came across Lauren Alane's site, but so very happy I did. She makes these cute little needle-felted (explanation to come) owls and birds and they are just adorable.
If you haven't been exposed to the needle felting craze, you basically take this big fluffy pieces of wool and poke them to death until you've shaped and smoothed them into cute little creatures like these. I'll admit, I took a trip to Michaeals, bought some wool and some needles and poked my heart out, but end result looked basically like something that my dog had chewed for several hours. All the more reason to admire the beauty of these little guys, but I will admit, it is a great tension reliever.
