New Website, New Wooly Horizons in these Times of Covid and Corona 2020

Dr. Now, Younan Nowzaradan, My 600-lb Life

The Covid-19 crisis has been challenging and caused almost everyone to make life adjustments, changes, and often to have to redirect focus to keep things we enjoyed before "the 'Rona" so rudely and unexpectedly disrupted our lives.

For me, this means that my local teaching of needle felting has been suspended indefinitely, for the safety of family and my fiber friends and local community. I am finding I have more stay-at-home time for needle felting (which I can't complain about!), so I decided to reactivate my Etsy shop under the new name,
Needle Felt by Cherie' (for selling washed wool fiber and related things), and also have a new web store at Amazon Handmade to sell my art work. 
 
During this time, I'm also enjoying stretching my skills with 2D wool paintings, along with pushing myself into making more complex 3D sculptures of real people. It's all part of the world of needle felting that I love so much!

So, as so many of us are forced to do in this strange year of 2020, I am reworking, reimagining, and reinventing areas of my little world. Finding ways to be happy, healthy, and helpful during this time of crisis and uncertainty, while stubbornly refusing to give up hope, to keep my faith high and my fear low, and to live a good life around all the adversities out there. After all, adversity is an opportunity to become stronger, to make things better, to learn and survive and grow until better times come around...and then we're ready and have the capacity to get the most from those new better times! 

This is my life, and doggone it, with the grace of God, it's going to be a good one! It's not "normal" anymore, or the same...but really, when is life ever "normal," and being the same seldom gives room for growth. So onward and upward, and for me, it will be with a needle in one hand, the Bible in the other, and fluffy balls of wool in my pockets...a song of praise in my heart and a smile on my face! I wish the same for you all!
