Puppies on ebay

I have two of my little dogs on ebay til Mon 12/3. Percy the Pug and Meggie the Scottie . I'm really happy with the way both of them turned out. It's very satisfying when the picture you have in your head translates to what you do with your hands. I have been sewing the smaller dogs completely by hand and I enjoy it more than machine sewing as I can fine tune features in a way not possible(at least for me) with machine sewing. I am doing a bear show Feb 24 and I will have a few bears but I think I am going to concentrate on some more small dogs & cats.

Ornament Swap

I'm very excited about my first swap. This is a Teddy Talk ornament exchange. I received the name and address of the person to get my ornament(shhhh! It's a secret). After going through boxes of various supplies and doo dads I put together a few things I might use in making my ornament. Last night I went to sleep thinking of what to make. Tonight I drew some patterns then cut out some parts and did a little sewing. It's beginning to take shape and now I can't wait to see how it turns out.

Ho Ho Oh Bearz Online Show

The online show is fast approaching. I have been working on photos and auction templates all day. The showroom opens Nov 21 and selling begins on Nov 23 at Bid4bears . I am also going to list several pieces as regular auctions on Bid4bears.

The web design class I am currently taking at ebearz university is coming in handy and I think I am getting the hang of html.

So, make sure you visit(and perhaps buy) the Ho Ho Oh Bearz Online Show! There will be a lot of great bears and critters.

Take a deep breath.


Stop the world I want to get off! I had jury duty this week. I only had to go 3 days but ended up on a jury for a DUI. Bill is getting a knee replacement on Mon the 12 so the rest of the time this week has been spent getting pre op tests, pre op classes and other appts. We have to take the trailer tomorrow to pick up a load of books because Bill will be out of commission for several weeks.
I am taking an online web design class at ebeaz U and trying to get ready for the Ho Ho Oh Bearz online show.
I am definately feeling overwhelmed and right now I can't see the light at the end of the tunnel.
Ok...pity party is over -back to work.
