Wishing You A Very Merry Christmas

I received this cute video ecard today from a sweet friend and wanted to share it with all of you.

I hope you are all ready for the big day ! The gifts are all bought and wrapped in this den......yikes, I just remembered I better take the turkey out of the freezer as soon as I finish here !!!
Remember, Christmas it isn't about all the "stuff", it is about family, friends and celebrating that little baby boy born in a manger so long ago :)

Enjoy !

Noel - the missing bear :)

Some of you may be wondering what ever happened to the mink bear I was making. I did take photos on Sunday like I mentioned. I decided to do a private listing on my website exclusively for my mailing list members . They were the only ones who had the link to his info. I am happy to say that Noel is heading to Manitoba for Christmas where , "The weather outside is frightful " LOL. I hope he doesn't freeze in those insanely cold temps. I know his new mom will make take good care of him when he arrives though.

Here is the link so the rest of you can enjoy more photos now that he is officially adopted.

An eventful week

Well, I do apologize for taking longer than expected to get this mink bears head completed. I ended up spending Sunday morning at the emergency for another panic like attack. My blood pressure and heart rate were sky high so they did lots of blood tests and an EKG to make sure I wasn't having a heart attack. I had to start blood pressure medication and had a follow up appointment with my doctor today which ruled out thyroid problems. I HATE taking pills :( Who knows why this is happening as the symptoms are common for many different things. I'm am glad the doctor discovered the blood pressure issue though ! I 'll change my diet and exercise more to see if that will keep the blood pressure under control too.

I still need to have another test done to see if we can sort this out, but the wait may be 3 months I'm told. So, hopefully this medication will keep me on track until then . It seems to be making me tired so I have to have sneak a few naps here and there LOL.

I really do hope to get this bear done by the weekend if all goes as planned LOL. I hope you can wait :)

I've lost my head LOL

I've been working on this champagne and black mink bear the past week in between Christmas shopping and all the other activities. It looks kind of funny without a head, but I assure you it will have one soon. I still think they look like turkeys this way LOL. I hope to get the head completed and attached in the next few days. Then he/she will be looking for a new home.

I'm pretty sure this will be my last mink bear of 2009. I always get a little sentimental each year when I say that ! I 'd like to get a mohair bear made if time permits. But, I can't promise. It depends how the days unfold, and they seem to fill up quickly this time of year :)
