It’s funny how the smallest of gestures can turn into a lifelong passion.
Ten years ago, artist Nastasya Shuljak received a pack of wool as a gift from her friends. She used it to make a bear and a rabbit, and from there, her creativity blossomed. Now, Nastasya has turned her hobby into a successful money-making venture, and it’s easy to see why she’s become so successful. Her creations are whimsical, delightful renditions of familiar plants and animals, and they’ve built her a sizeable following on social media. Take a look:
Some creatures are familiar…
… while others are completely alien.
Her creations look like they came straight out of a children’s fairytale.
These little guys look cute enough to eat!
Who needs a potted plant when you could simply have one of these sitting by your window?
She isn’t afraid to get creative with her critters.
Some of her wool friends even look a bit human.
And of course, when one simply isn’t enough, it never hurts to bring home a friend.
It may not be financially wise to spend all your money on cute wool animals, but at the same time, no one would blame you if you did.
