We Came Back

And I'm sure I'm 10 pounds heavier!!!!
LOL
That's all we did eat and drink!!!
We had a fantastic time! Got to see and play with my wonderful friend Joanne....she had to help me eat and drink after all!
We had wonderfully hot weather and glorious sunshine. The only downer on the trip was that that bear boutique was closed and moved somewhere and I was unable to see and adopt a bear! I was very disappointed...cause that is the main reason I go to Salt Spring Island is to see all those fantastic artist bears. I have to admit I was a little angry as well cause I did email the store and received no response. Plus we called many times and nothing. There was no notice or message on the buisness phone. So I really hope I hear from the owner and that she is doing alright.
So I had my sad moment and then carried on!!! More drinking and eating...:O)

Here are a few quick pics!!!

The car and cottage we rented.

The view from our window!

Us outside the Empress Hotel in downtown Victoria
We decide to stop and have a drink and an espresso on the veranda at the Empress.....

The bill for two drinks!!! OUCH!!!!!
BUT we are worth it!!

A quick smooch after our drink!
:O)

We went to Chemanius and saw this sweet little AND I mean little hotel!! I have to stay there for at least one night!!! It is absolutely darling!!!



 Well that's about it for now! I am glad to be home! We have plans to visit again in September. Gives me something to look forward to and count the days at work!!
LOL

Just Three more sleeps till our trip to Victoria....WooHoo
That's the good  news
Have to work today...BLAH
That's the bad news...
LOL
I don't usually work Mondays so I am going to be messed up all day long!!!

Yesterday I managed to get the shading and jointing on my new bear pattern(actually it's a dog)done!
So hopefully I can finish him before I leave but I think that maybe rushing it!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I guess I better get ready for work
I leave you with a picture of my hang tags that I finally got around to doing.
Now I just need to place them on my bears!

Happy Monday!

Time Well Wasted

Started the day off at the hairdressers getting my "do" done!!
2 hour gossip fest..lol....
Gots to look purdy for my trip..however that might take more than a trip to the stylist
:O)

I got home and took a few pics of my new minis. Not sure if I am going to place them on Etsy at this time or just save them for the show in Sept....
hmmmm I will ponder on that one








Now I am going to go and have a wee little snoozer!
 In between the loads of laundry!

Happy Saturday

First off I'd like to give a BIG....

To my newest follower!!
WELCOME!!!
:O)

Today is going to be spent doing this and that!!!
You know those little catch up things you have to do but really prefer doing something else!
Must take my puppy girl to the vet today. Get her backside cleaned and checked and she must get a manicure/pedicure as well!! Wow she has some long nails!!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I've finished up some mini boxes and a mini bear..so I will try to get some photos done to show. Would like to finish a new design I've been working on...see how far I will get today!

This is a picture of the little shelf displays Mom and I will use at our shows. Mom spray painted them antique ivory and they look soooo much better.
I can already feel the excitement for the shows!! I've mailed my registration forms and we are good to go!!!
Yipppeee!!
I would also like to begin making my hang tags for my bears!!
So much to do!!!
Happy
Saturday!!!

Bugger, Bugger, Bugger

Nothing like coming home from work only to find that your blog has fallen apart!
The site where I was using the background needs to find a new server so I lost my favorite background.....AND I really, really liked it!!!
I tried so many different sites and was having no luck, I finally came across this one and it will have to do until I have more energy to figure something else out. Maybe it's time to purchase one!
Thank goodness we are closer to Friday!!!

Oh MY Goodness!

Well did I ever have fun dressing my bunny!!!
NOT!!!
:O)
She was being difficult...once again the bunny did not want to wear what I thought she should wear!!
So we played dress up for a good hour...trying on dresses and sweaters. Finally she settled on the outfit she has on. I thought I would complete her look with a bonnet...she sweetly declined and said I'd rather have a bow or two!
Wow! High Maintenance!!
Wonder where she gets it from????
Anyway she is as sweet as can be and I am very proud how she has turned out!
Please say Hello...
*~*BELLA*~*
