Wool critters

** This is not a sponsored post.  All opinions contained herein are my own. **
Today I want to share with you a fun Etsy shop: Good Natured by Dani.  I first discovered her through a post on one of the blogs I follow.  Then, I won a facebook giveaway for a free craftimal.  I asked her if she could make a fox for my husband (since that's his Woodbadge critter). Renard the Fox was born.
Fast forward several months to when I completed the Woodbadge course.  I knew I wanted to ask if she could make a beaver so we could have a "matched set" so to speak.  I finally decided to go for it and emailed the request.  Dani was quick to jump on the idea and she created Winston the Beaver.

I love that she even included a "chewed" tree stump.  A funny side-note:  Over the last night of our training, we were asked to do some kind of service at the camp.  Options were limited in the pouring rain, so my patrol decided to gather up some dead-wood and pile it near the firepit for the next group to be able to use for firewood.  As we shared our projects the following morning, one of the staff members (also a Beaver) informed us that this wasn't firewood, it was a snack!

Anyway, I'm super pleased with our cute, wool critters. I'm sure they'll become the best of friends.
If you've ever wondered what to get someone for a gift or just because, you should check out Dani's shop.  She has lots of cute animals and is open to new ideas.  You think of it, she'll craft it!
