Today is the longest day of the year, and that means tonight is the animals’ Firefly Ball. Gwendolyn Raccoon has made a crown of fresh wildflowers, decorated with a big sun and some fireflies, and festooned with twinkly golden ribbons. Here is how she did it.
Friends, we've been making you Hazel Village animals for TEN YEARS! Time sure does march on; it doesn't feel like that long. When I started making woodland animals and selling them on Etsy in May 2010, I never expected us to get so big. Maybe big enough that I could do this full-time and sell wholesale to a few stores, sure, but I couldn't picture this.
