I have been so busy this week trying to get this advent calendar finished for my daughter. She very much adores Sentimental Circus so thats the theme I went with.

The photo is not very good as its off my phone, we've had a new computer and the camera software needs to installed. Which does mean there will be a wait as I have a new bear to photograph.

I know...its been awhile life certainly got in the way. Back to the beginning years... its a miniature! I'm so pleased how he turned out.

Show and tell soon, promise x

Cathy's creations

What a glorious sunny day and what was a girl supposed to do but while away an hour on Facebook :) Real work has been very stressful then other things and my bears and any interest in them took a severe back seat. Just catching up on Facebook really cheered me up and it was lovely to meet Cathy on there. Here is a link to her blog

I've a much needed holiday coming up then hopefully I'll get some mojo back and start making again. I need to try and not let other people stress me out, its nearly always other people's stress too! Hope you have some sunshine too.

The Snowman....

Hi, like a lot of Bloggers I did'nt intend to be away for so long but hey ho avoiding the white stuff and stopping in has its advantages. No real reason for being away but I suppose a few changes in my 'real' job and I sometimes feel I can only concentrate on one thing at a time. So bears will be appearing but it might take a while.

Did you enjoy The Snowman? I know I did old and new. Here is something else I enjoyed over Christmas.....

Eek...look what appeared in my garden yesterday! One of the snowmen from Dr Who. My daughter is also a fan and it makes a change from the cuddly looking Snowman. Well I think it does.....

Now where did that time fly to! Here, finally, is one of my latest bears, Albie.

I've got to admit I do love a panda. Hope everyone likes him.

Its been a while.....

I think the less you blog, the less you blog, so apologies for going AWOL. Here are some of the things I've been up to.....

A trip to St Annes stopping rather cheaply at the new Travelodge. We love St Annes and have'nt been for a few years. Also a £3.50 day ticket saw us get the bus into Blackpool and a tram to Fleetwood. We've got another Travelodge deal booked for September and December, if you can catch the offers its great.

This is the case of a grandfather clock my dad made many years back, its my next project for a makeover. I'm having a bit of a bearmaking break until autumn but need something to 'do'.

This is where we spent a wonderful week in May. We love the Antalya region of Turkey, there are some wonderful hotels. This one is The Delphin Diva in Lara beach, a great hotel with the best staff ever..

Late but not least here is a bear I made a while back, bear with no name yet!

Oh and here is where we've been spending loads of time, barbecues, sunbathing.....

OK thats a fib, roll on summer!
