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!!

Not sure we'll be using the hot tub.... they are predicting snow flurries this coming Sunday!! So we are planning on layering our clothes: jackets, sweaters etc!
We are all excited about going.  Our trip will take about 13 hours of driving time plus stops for gas etc. I have done my test drive  of my son's HUGE truck... I can manage it but don't want to drive in St. Louis, Nashville, Chattanoga or on the very steeps grades in Tenn. Nor do I want to park it or back it up. I know I sound particular but it it HUGE!!
I plan on lots of pictures!

Here's a link to the school    

I'll be making the sweet grass baskets!!

I am working like mad to have things ready before we leave!!!  But  I don't want to insert my PayPal buttons until I am back!
