“ Anecdotal evidence suggests that many individuals are already using caffeine to self-medicate ADHD in themselves or their children. Many sufferers find it has the opposite effect than it does in other people: instead of making them more active and stimulated, it actually has more of a “calm-down” effect, and encourages sleep. The effectiveness of coffee in calming ADHD children has become a great discussion point on websites and forums. Many adults with ADHD also turn to coffee. In fact, some can’t do without it; caffeine’s stimulating effect helps them focus and stay on task.”
Wondering what the difference is between a needle-felted piece and a common stuffed plush?
Needle felting is a labour-intensive process where the artist, using mostly natural/organic fibres such as wool roving and a felting tool consisting of one or more industrial notched needles sculpts the piece from a cotton-like texture to a finished solid piece.
The texture and hardness in the end depends on the amount of hours dedicated to the process and the choice of fibre.
A typical needle felted piece would take anywhere from 6-8 hours to make while a more professional sculpture would take even months to be finished.
Needle felting artists usually prefer not to use any glue, thread, silicone or any other kind of ‘external’ material for their pieces. Sometimes a wire frame armature is necessary, but most of the time pieces are 100% wool.
Each needle-felted piece is one of a kind and incredibly difficult to replicate.
To look at examples of this kind of work and maybe get a one of a kind, unique, hand sculpted piece for your folk art collection or as a gift to a loved one, visithttp://monstroddities.etsy.com or search for “needle felted + toy/doll/bear/animal” (whatever you are interested in) at your favourite shopping website.
