A crazy week

Wow, it has been one busy week .  I have had tons of wonderful emails from strangers commenting on the recent newspaper article .  Such nice people !   It is exciting to chat about bears.  It's been a challenge trying to keep up with all the emails.  But I am thankful that people have enjoyed reading about my bears.

Plus I've been fortunate to have acquired some gorgeous new (vintage) mink fur , and met some lovely people. I have more  mink to pick up too . I'll  have a great stash to keep me in  business for awhile.  It's amazing how much fur is hanging around in people's closets. 

On top of that I've been driving my son all over town to several job interviews.  I am proud  that he got 2 job offers and started a  new job this week.  So, it has certainly been a very exciting week in our house.

First bear of 2012 - Lewis

Please meet 7" Lewis, my newest mink bear looking for a loving home :)  You can learn all about him here :

A moment in the spotlight

It has been such a crazy day , well week,  here in the den.  It all began last week when I got a call to be interviewed for the local newspaper.   It was quite a surprise and wonderful opportunity as this paper has a large circulation.   God has richly blessed me throughout my bear making journey .  I guess this is my 15 minutes of  fame lol.   I have had lots of  wonderful emails and comments from total strangers so it has been a fun day.  It's nice to have such a good start to 2012 after such a challenging year last year.

I  spent several days madly creating a couple of mink bears to have on hand, and then of course cleaning the sewing room.  No one is allowed to enter that disaster area lol. Let's just say I am messy when I create. I hope to get those bears listed soon so check back.

I am rather introverted so when I opened the newspaper this morning it was a little weird having a photo of me starting back !  However, the reoprted, Andrea Nemetz,  did a fantastic job interpreting what I said.  She really "got" it .  And the photographer, Eric Wynne, worked some kind of magic with his camera. 

You can read the article online if you feel inclined :  ARTICLE

I hope to get those bears listed soon so check back.

A New Year

I hope that the new year is starting out well for you.   It is always a time of reflection ,  hope , and opportunity to start fresh.  There are things I want to change, and ways in which I want to become a better person. And, of course there are lots of bears I am looking forward  to bringing to life !

I came across this video today that really moved me.  I had to share .  It is a tad long, but trust me it is worth taking the time to watch.

Make the most of 2012 .  It's a gift  !
