Pastel Bunnies....

I guess I am just a bunny freak. I can't get them off of my mind!! I just want to sit and think about what kind I can do next! There are so many things to do with Easter bunnies and I have a whole month to do them. YIPPEEEEE!!!!!

So, I'm starting off my pastel collection with this little purple bunny peek a boo tear bear with a giant carrot. I love the way it turned out. If you love purple, then this bunny is for you. Keep an eye out on ebay....because I'll be listing more this week with some Easter eggs. There might be a blue bunny, a yellow bunny, a pink bunny......I'm getting all giddy just thinking about it.

On the journey to weight loss....

I know this blog is supposed to be dedicated to tear bears and such...but I want to also include my daily life and struggles and what not. One of the biggest issues in my life right now is my weight and it is depressing. But I am changing that! I rejoined Curves and had my first workout this morning. It felt so good to be back there and doing something that will benefit me. I'm setting small goals for myself.

  1. I want to lose 3o lbs by the end of May (hopefully more)

  2. I want to be a healthy wife and mother

  3. I want to live to be old and retire with my husband someday

  4. I want to be a healthy weight so I'm not huffing and puffing to climb the stairs at home.

  5. I want to be a role model for others with the same problem as myself.

Those are just some of the goals I want to accomplish. I would love to hear any weightloss success stories about your own personal journies in life. I'll keep you posted on my success. I say success because I'm changing the way I think about things and food and know that I can and will win this battle within me.

I love Easter....and Easter Bunnies! I just can't help myself when it comes to Easter. I get all silly and sentimental. With my tear animals I always try and make items for the holidays. Right now my mind is geared for Easter and St. Patricks Day. With Easter I love all of the pastel, blue, soft green, pale yellow, light purple. I was at Walmart yesterday and couldn't help but notice that one whole row of Easter items was broken down by colors. One section was blue (blue whopper boxes, Reeses cups, suckers, eggs, bunnies, etc.,), another yellow, another orange...well, I think you get the picture. I wanted to go crazy and start buying all of that stuff now! I refrained from doing so though.

I have found that my Easter tear bunnies are doing fabulous on ebay. I just wanted to share pics of the two bunnies that I've recently completed. Let me know what you think....leave me a comment.

Vintage or Victorian? That is the Question

I'm not really sure what to call this other than maybe Vintage or Victorian. I had some cards that I purchased off of ebay a couple of years ago and decided to use them with my tear bears. This set is my favorite and I just had to share it with all my blogging buddies out there. I've always been partial to green and the paper I used is from the DCWV Once upon a time pack. There is some beautiful prints in this pack, I'm in love with it!! The peek a boo bear I made is to die for! I'm just not saying that either, she is to die for! I worked really hard on her and she turned out better than I could have imagined. Don't you just love all the greens, oranges,creams and reds? I do too!! Let me know what you think, leave me a comment. I always enjoy what every one comments on. Until next time.....I hope you enjoy.

My Newest Creation!

I've had a creativity block for the last several weeks. Imagine that! I've always been inspired by something when it comes to making my tear bears. But creativity has not flowed and I've been bummed about it ......until now. I got in my little head that I wanted to do some spring bears. One of my design team members over at the Making Lemonade Design Team on ebay said I should consider doing something for I took her advice.

My mind started rolling and I produced two of the cutest little bears. They scream "SPRING". I'm posting them here for you to take a look at. They are also on ebay right now...but I wanted to share them with my bloggy friends also. If you have any ideas on what to do next, leave a comment for me. I'm up for a challenge!
