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.
