winter snow...

This is the "SNOW"!!! the weather people were saying we would have... about 2 inches!!!  Not the horrendous life threatening storm they were threatening!! I get so tired of the exaggerations .... the storm watchers driving all around so they can report every little flake  ( snow storm) ... possible tornado clouds ( rainstorms) and so on!!  Plus telling us how cold things are and then adding on the wind chill ... It is winter... we don't live  in Florida... we should expect winter weather and be prepared

Happy New Year

                                    Happy New Year to you all!!! 

I'm not one for making NY resolutions .... other than general ones like staying healthy...exercising... and so on.  but maybe I should try harder !  Put more art into my work.... think outside the box more often .... try some new avenues of expression..... have more fun!

Any suggestions???

feels funny

No bear making ... no friend making... no sewing knitting. Glass Dragon Bears is quiet until after Christmas!!  And that feels really really strange!   So I guess I'll have to make more cookies and get ready for Christmas!!!

We are headed to our son's on Friday for a pre-Christmas get together... and then everyone comes here for a Christmas brunch and gifts!! Looking forward to it all!

The tree is done... I finished some outside lights etc. ... Now it is time to just add little stuff!!

Thanks for looking

Thanks to those of you who went to the Bear Blitz Show and took a look... not just at my "creations" but everyone else too!!
I have really been having fun with my felt gingerbread boys.  I joined a Facebook group called "Felt Craft Lovers" started by  Jennifer Tobicoe.... members of the group are from ALL over and post pictures of their work. I am amazed by some of the creations posted.... and the makers have made me step away from bears and friends to something new....
If you are on Facebook... take a look at this group.

Bear Blitz time!!!

The Bear Blitz show is only two days long!! Lenny is my lead bear... and he comes with a felt gingerbread man to hang on the tree.  Since I use USPS Priority Mail for US shipping I expect packages to arrive before Christmas in the US !

Off to the Post Office

Bears and friends are all packed up and headed to the PO.... I usually put packages in our mailbox for our mail person to pick up.... but there were too many!   These are some from the recent online bear shows!!

busy busy busy....

Sorry I have been away for so long.... the Folk School trip to North Carolina was loads of fun ! Managed to spend the entire trip in the back seat of my son's truck ( a huge 350 Silverado) and didn't have to take a turn at the wheel at all!! Hooray!!  Thank you husband and son!!
When we ruturned I had two online bears shows to prepare for and a physical one up in DesMoines!! And a small craft show at my daughter's non-profit on Thursday.  If I can make it through next week... I only have Thanksgiving, company and a CT scan to get through!!
