Wonderful Weekend

Weekends just don't get any better then this!!!
I had a fabulous weekend spent with friends and antique shopping!!
Saturday Went shopping with a friend down on Whyte Ave...it's the local hip strip for a lack of a better term. Filled with shops and restaurants and neat things and people to see. The weather was fantastic not to hot just right for walking around. I managed to find some Chistmas goodies for Mom which I have stashed away. I also found some goodies for myself....well for bears!!! Surprised?????
Saturday night was spent with my honeybun!! Had a great dinner out with great food and awesome service. If you live in Edmonton you really must go to "Homefire Grill" They have great food, fantastic service!!! Plus the atmosphere in there is very warm and inviting!!
Which brings us to Monday..where instead of sewing, here I sit showing off my treasures!!!
I apologize for the not so great pics. The lighting wasn't that good and I am to lazy to bring out the lamps!!
LOL
So anyway here are a few pics
I'm not sure why I had to have this!! It just appealed to me!
This hat is going to get some pretty embellishments! It will look very sweet on a bear.
Also some nice trim for little dresses!
Mom actually found this sweet little silk pants and shirt outfit. I have plans for those pants already brewing in my mind!!! LOL

Now I am off to work on my rabbit!!!
Happy Monday!

My NEW Baby!!


She doesn't have a name yet cause my Mom is not here and it is her job to name the newbies...LOL..
I am extremely happy how she turned out! I'm not sure if you can tell on the photos but I gave her eyelashes!!! I have been wanting to try that for awhile. I bought some probably a year ago...better late then never but she was was screaming to me that she wanted eyelashes!! And she was right!!!
So I will save her for my Teddy Bear Show and Sale that's in October. Actually most of the bears and critters I make now will go to the show.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I have already started my next bear or rather BUNNY!!! He's been sewn and I am stuffing away!!! I'm using a mohair called"mink" and it's gorgeous!!! Should turn out very nice!

Thought I'd take a break and share my new girlie giraffe with you!
Any name suggestions???

Victoria Here We Come

 I have booked a trip to Victoria BC for this July and I am so excited. We are going to be staying at the same cottage we were in last year!!!
It's a sweet little one bedroom with kitchen and separate livingroom. I fell in love with it when we were there!
Of course I need to stop in at" Upstairs Bears" on Salt Spring Island...Heaven ON Earth.
I truely want to live there..

A magical place full of the most amazing artist bears!!!
Here I get to spend a couple of hours talking with the owner and friend Rona and admiring the beautiful bears and yes hopefully bring a special friend home!!!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Of course we will eat at all the bays and harbours we can get to..heehee...
plus a nice afternoon spent downtown
So many things to do....NEED more time!!
I can't wait!

A Big Thank You

I just wanted to say Thank You to the lovely lady who purchased a whack of my new minis! Her feedback was so wonderful and made me feel amazing. When trying out new things you are never sure if others will enjoy them as much as the creator...lol....so I was on pins and needles waiting to hear from her. Then she leaves me such great feedback that I know for sure to continue making my little wooden treasures!!!
Not sure if you read my blog but....
THANKS SUSAN!!!
Feedback is so important. It lets sellers not only know that you received your item but that you love it and are happy. Plus it is a fantastic way for other buyers to get information.

Where Have I Been??

OoOoOops!
Well things here have been, let's just say overwhelming and difficult. Trying to get through it day by day. Won't bore you with all the details.
:)
I am almost finished some minis and have been working on some new designs..first one was a flop though so back to the drawing board! As soon as I'm done I will take some pics and place on Etsy.
For now I leave you with a favorite cartoon!
I love this!!

hmmmmmm...wondering if that would work at my job??
