Bear Production

I have been up to my eyeballs in fur the past 2 weeks. Once I registered for the November online show I got really motivated. I am required to have at least 3 bears to sell. Amazingly I have completed 3 mink bears in this short time. One of them is made from a mink color that I have never used before and it is really cute and different.

However, I have decided to list one of the bears for adoption later today. Part of this bear is also made from a mink color that is new to me. It is like the color of toffee.....yum :) Unfortunately, my son's motorbike engine totally blew apart in practice for the 2nd time this year (ugh !) so race season ended early for him , and I have to take my daughter to the dentist today to start the process for braces so all I see is $$$$ .

So check my website , or watch for your email later today if you are on my mailing list for the listing.

For now I must get back to making bears . I still have to complete at least 1 more for the show, and start on my Oct. giveaway bear too. It is an exciting , creative time in this bear den :)

Online Teddy Bear Show

I am excited to announce that I will be participating in my first online Teddy Bear Show in November. There are tons of wonderful artists from around the world taking part so it promises to be a fantastic show worth visting "virtually". I plan to have 3 or more bears available.

I'll tell you more as the date approaches.

Feeling Creative Again

Some people have been asking me when I'll have more bears available. Well, summer holidays are now officially over, school started for the kids yesterday. However we've been in the midst of a heat wave for the past several days- feels like 40C and it is so humid. I'm convinced this heat followed me home from Arizona !!! The temps are the same as the desert, but the difference is I don't have air conditioning in my house, nor do the schools . Cool weather is on the horizon but first there is a hurricane warning for Nova Scotia for tomorrow.

Despite the heat, I am starting to feel very creative . I am excited to get back to business and start a routine again. I haven't made a bear for awhile and I really miss it. I did manage to squeeze one out several weeks ago that I gifted to one of the ladies in Arizona.

Next week I plan to check my fur stash and see what bears are waiting to be created. So hopefully new bears will be available soon.

In the meantime, I got creative this moring and made this fruit basket for a family gathering later tonight. I'm pleased with how it turned out :)

I hope you have a blessed weekend :)
