Mini Monday: Cozy Cottage Creations

Our new feature--Mini Mondays! Today's randomly chosen Team Member is Cozy Cottage Creations. A bit more about Cozy from her profile...

Ever since I made my first pillow, I've wanted to have my own shop where I sell handmade items. Now - one career, one husband, two children, a move across the country and back, and fifteen years later - I'm doing it.

I'm one of those people you see knitting everywhere they go. I'd knit while driving if I could. There are a few side benefits to my passion for felting: 1. My four-year-old can walk across the room holding a bowl without me holding my breath. 2. Knitting is great for weight loss. It is impossible to knit and eat ice cream at the same time. 3. The washing machine is a very exciting appliance when there's something felting in it.

All of my designs are original and I do not follow a pattern. My ideas tend to come to me at odd times. The challenge is how to turn that thought into something you can hold in your hands.

I love the process of creation. You take two things (like a sheep and some sticks of bamboo), put them together, and out comes something completely and utterly unique (like a felted pencil cup!) Amazing! (after all, isn't that how we all got here to begin with?) And sometimes the end product and journey to get there can be quite a surprise. To me, that's what life is all about.

Cozy makes beautiful things! I am the lucky owner of one of her pretty pencil cups and it makes me feel happy when I see the colors and designs that she custom-made for me :)

Not only is she an amazing craftsperson but funny too, "Knitting is great for weight loss. It is impossible to knit and eat ice cream at the same time." I love it!
