Christmas and stuff....

Christmas bear that sold on ebay
Panda Christmas bear with Tree!

Hello! Boy, I sure have neglected this little blog. I have to be the world's most awful blogger. I keep forgetting that I started it and when I do remember....I've got other things occupying my time. So anyway, here's the scoop on what's been going on in my life. The Christmas season has started, the tree is put up, the decorations are out and it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!!! Over the summer I had turned the pilot light out to our fireplace. My husband is so afraid of lighting that thing. He tried...but no success. I got down the next morning with my sister and we figured out how to light that thing. If you could have seen us....you would have cracked up. She kept waving the candle lighter back and forth and I was cracking up laughing...because I was sure she was going to burn us up. Needless to say...we got that baby lit and it's working just fine!!! We'll stay nice and toasty when the snow starts to fall.

I've been working on a few Christmas tear bears and they've been selling rather nicely. I'm always excited when one reaches the $5 mark, but I've had 2 sell this week over that mark. I'm glad because I was beginning to think that my bears weren't that great. Sales have been terrible on Ebay lately for everyone.

Free blog candy at http://going-buggy.blogspot.com/

Check it out!!!!
Another CRAZY day!!
Ok, so I'm not this good at blogging. I think it is great though and I love posting the stuff I work on here. Now, I just need to get the word out that I have a blog, LOL. I also post things at http://makinglemonadedesignteam.blogspot.com/ , I do a better job over there than here. I'm working on it though.

I have a couple of auctions posted on ebay right now of some Pretty in...Blue....Purple. Yessers, my theme this week is Pretty in something. Bear with me as I get some more bears made this week. There are certainly a lot of things going on in my life right now. My sister may have to have her gall bladder taken out and that leaves full responsibility of taking care of my nieces to me and Kenneth. We love the girls...but they are a handful...plus we have one of our own. That's 4 kids altogether! Whew!!! Did I mention all of this might be happening today?!!? Yeah, I know things happen fast around here. LOL. So, I know you are dying to see my bears, so I'll not keep you in suspense any longer!

Favorite Autumn Bear! How Cute is She?



I have this bear posted on ebay and I think she is just the sweetest thing. I love her! She has a bid of $10.50 right now and I am hoping that she will go higher and higher. Too bad all my bears can't sell for that amount of money. I love creating these little bears, it really doesn't make a difference if I make anything or not. I just like sharing them. LOL.
Trick or treat is tonight in my neighborhood. My foster son is going as the Joker and my nieces are going as Hannah Montana and Steve Urkel. They are all such a hoot. My husband is dressing up as batman and I will post pics when I take them this evening. It's always so much fun to see who is out trick or treating.

Puppies are ready for new homes!


So, I have these 4 beautiful daschund puppies that need new homes. We have 2 girls and 2 boys left. They turned 6 wks old on Friday Oct 24,2008. They are beautiful little miniatures. We took the liberty of naming each one, but I'm sure whoever they go home with will give them new names. The names that we gave them are Boomer (he's the largest doggie and so sweet), Clyde (he has white on his little paws), SaraBella (she was born feet first and I helped deliver her) and my favorite little gal Ruby.

I'm not so good at this!

I sold these sweet little bears on ebay for our THINK PINK challenge on MLDT! Aren't they just adorable? I think so too!

OK, so I am not so good at this blogging thing. You would think as much time as I spend on the computer that I could get this. But I have no clue. Life seems to pass me by and somehow I always manage to find myself in the slow lane.



I've been working on a Thanks word book album. It's my first. I think it is turning out really well. I'll post a pic when I get it completed. I take so long on albums...everything has to be just right for me. I guess I am kind of a perfectionist when it comes to my art. I tell my sister all the time that she is anal about cleaning...well....I'm anal about my scrap booking!!! LOL.

My Very First Post






Ok. So, this is my first post to my newly created blog. I'm excited to be here but am totally clueless as to what I am doing. I guess I will learn as I go, Huh? Why did I create a blog? Well, to be honest...to help promote my tear bears and build my business. I'm totally addicted to tear bears! I'll post some here to show you what I do. I'm also involved with a wonderful group of ladies on ebay called the Making Lemonade Design Team. I'm co-leader and Emily is our wonderful leader. Just type in MLDT in the search engine on ebay and you will find us!

My favorite color is green, so you will see a lot of green in my blog. I think it is just a bright cheerful color. My eyes are also green, that might be another reason I love the color,LOL!
