Karen Straznicky

Inspired by nature and the rhythm of the changing seasons, Karen's creations fuel the imagination. Using wool, wood and little bits found in natural settings, whimsy is crafted into each piece.


Karen and her family moved to Merrickville from Ottawa, and are honing their homesteading skills living alongside the natural world that lies around them. To find out more about Karen and her LittleWool creations follow along on Instagram @littlestwool.  Or check out her blog at
