How to Add whimsy to your Christmas Tree with Bossy's Feltworks ~ Review & Giveaway!

"Chestnuts roasting on an open fire, Jack Frost nipping at your nose..." Christmas is about those cozy traditional, family moments that make us feel all warm and fuzzy within but commercialism and plastic glitz has taken over in recent years. Bossy's Feltworks puts the warm and fuzzy back into Christmas with homespun ornaments so endearing they tug at everyone's heart strings!

I love Christmas! Snuggling by a cozy fire watching the falling snow outside my window, baking cookies for Santa, and spending extra quality time with family. One of my favourite seasonal activities is carefully unpacking my cherished ornaments, my treasured Christmas decor. This year I have one more precious ornament to hang on my tree, a beautiful hand felted wool sheep created with meticulous care by the talented hands of Amy, Mandy, and Kari of Bossy's Feltworks.

Bossy's Feltworks is the cooperative effort of Amy Lum, Mandy Troxel, and Kari Van Gelder. Kari says, in 2006, they discovered felting needles and dove into a pile of wool from Amy's farm. Since then, they have continued to combine friendship, parenting, work, and craft into one big wool ball!
Their signature animal of course being the sheep, I was given a delicate and adorable white sheep ornament sporting a variegated purple and blue scarf to review which has fast become a favourite! Whimsy and home spun traditional charm are certainly inherent in its precious design. The ladies of Bossy's feltworks handcraft these classic darlings in a variety of charming forms. From fanciful flying pigs to amazing orca whales their unique wool creations add delight and character to transform any tree! These ornaments make unforgettable heartfelt gifts!

Among my favourites is the polar bear {of course everyone knows my affinity with this majestic creature}...I have several other favourites but would hate to spoil it for you. You will just have to visit Bossy's Feltworks, discover your own personal favourite, and enter to win an endearing Sheep Ornament {your choice of white, black, or black and white}which will be a conversation piece at your Christmas gathering this year!
