Running in circles....

I haven't started to get ready for the show....which is one week from today! Although I'm not trying to finish more bears for the show as I have enough in my critter room to more than fill a table, I still have to make tags for many of them. Then they have to be packed, table covers readied, bags and tissues for (hopefully) the many purchases the collectors will make.
I have also been making Christmas dresses for Blythe dolls. I will be listing them in my Nancy's Notions shop on etsy. Anything to keep the funds coming in.
My Christmas swap for TBACA will be on it's way on Monday. It's a surprise, so no pics yet. The other swap I joined is Viv's Littlest Elf swap. Already finished my little elf too...also no pics til after Dec 1st.
The other thing I have been working on is getting a really good photograph of a critter I want to submit to a competition. Judging is based on the photograph and the judges don't see the actual creation, so the photo must be good. The piece I'm trying to photograph is mostly white and while it looks fine on my computer when it's printed there is a glare on the white fur. I have tried several different lighting techniques. Even took pics outside yesterday...a rare cloudy day here in Florida. I'm getting frustrated and not sure what to try next.
The little bear in the photo is Carly. She has been sitting around here for awhile in little shorts so I decided a cute dress might help her find a new home. She will be going to the show Nov 7 with me. By the way, the show, which is presented by the Sunshine Bear Den of Good Bears of the World will by at 4725 Lake Worth Rd, Lake Worth, Florida from 10 - 3. If your in that neck of the woods, come by.
