Getting excited!

The Be My Valentine online show is just around the corner. I will post tomorrow with the sneak peek at my bears that will be available.
The Tampa show is the next weekend, on Sunday the 20th. I am looking forward to seeing other Teddy Bear artists and, of course, their creations. These 2 will be traveling to Tampa with me. The brown bear is Reese. He is a little larger than usually for me at 14 inches. Padma is the purple elephant. She is only the 2nd ellie I have made and I think she turned out sweet.
Remember check back tomorrow for a sneak peek!

Making progress

The dining room is pretty much finished. I really didn't have to do much. The curio cabinet now has our family treasures on display. Glassware from Bill's parents and carnival glass from my grandmother. Pictures hung on the wall. I had to put up new drapery rods and curtains. There are no blinds on the windows in the front of the house. The windows are 52 inches wide and the kind of blinds I want are expensive so that will wait. We still haven't decided what to do with the room across from the dining room. The family room and kitchen are behind it. Maybe a sitting room or exercise room. Still have more pictures to hang but I'm getting there.
Don't forget the Be My Valentine Show at TBACA. It starts Feb 11, 8PM Australian time(I think that is 4AM EST in the US). I will have a sneak peek on the 1st.

Back to business

Finally feel like I can really get back to my critter creations. There is still a lot to do around the house but things are starting to get into a regular routine. I had forgotten how stressful moving can be. This morning I updated all my shops...etsy, artfire, and Bear Pile. Next on the list is updating my website.
Tian was created before the move and is now in my shops. Her name is pronounced Tee-Ahn and I believe it means "sweet". I just love pink and black together. Alpaca fur makes the best pandas!
This afternoon, it's back to sewing. Almost finished a Puppy Grrl to take to the Tampa show on Feb 20th. I hope to get 2 more new critters done before then ....we'll see.
Don't forget the TBACA Valentine show. It's online, so you can attend from anywhere in the world. I will have 3 critters in the show(completed before the move). A sneak peek coming soon!
