Maxwell Mouse

Maxwell is the largest mouse I've ever made or  would want to see in my house!!

He is almost 10 inches tall to the top of his head... not his ears, but his head!!  He is wearing glasses, a vintage clip on bow tie and an altered vintage collar.....   He took off for the UK almost as soon as he was finished and has settled into his new home!!

Summer Sizzler online show

Bright Star Promotions is having another online bear show on August 2 -3  ... a quickie show and another chance to look at and buy bears and bear friends.

Mellie is my preview bear and her colors really sizzle!  She is made in hand dyed blue greens and hot peachy pink mohair with a hot pink perle cotton nose!!
She reminds me of watermelon... sort of!!!

Here is the link so you can see ALL of the preview bears       Summer Sizzler Show     

I am working hard on bears and friends for the show ..... and my portion of the souvenir bears for the Kansas City  Bill Boyd Memorial Jubilee in September.

Forgot to mention that my granddaughter is now a teenager ... huge milestone!!!  Love you Lili!!

trip to the Maker's Fair

Bob and I went into Kansas City ... to Union Station actually... to take a look at this year's Maker's Fair. I think this is Kansas City's fifth show. Last year we went on a very hot Saturday and it was a mad house. This year the weather was so much nicer and since it was the last day/ Sunday , it was much less frenetic. Lots of new things... more non-profits : Kauffman Center, organic foods, lego giveaways ( boxes of donated legos are put into nice boxes with assembly instructions and given to children in the local CASA court system). The woodworkers guild made wooden toy parts for children to put together. Lots of companies demonstrating 3-d printers.  Booths of handcrafted items.  etc etc etc.... Interesting.... New this year too was a group of restored or souped up vintage cars on the drive outside of the station.

This was a nice change from bear making.... the "Summer Sizzler" show is August 2-3. I need some new things!!

We have plans for swimming with our daughter and the grandchildren on Wednesday. It certainly has been hot enough.  Hopefully  rain will "not fall"  from 4 to 6 pm!! LOL
