Busy, Busy and Birthday Wishes!


Since arriving home late Monday, I've hardly had a moment to just be still. That's the way it always is around here....life moving at warp speed! I'm back working in my mess of a studio. I really need to get the rest of the upstairs rooms finished so I can get organized again. Working in such disarray is distracting at the very least. I'm normally a total neat freak....a place for everything and everything in its place. I think it's time to make a to-do list and get back on track!

Here's a quick little snapshot of three of the four bears I'm presently working on. They're kind of funny looking at this stage!! Many bear artists detail the head with ears, eyes, noses and mouth before attaching the head to the body and then they rest the heads in jars or bowls until the body is finished. Is it me, or is that kind of creepy? Perhaps I'm the odd duck. I like to finish the details as the whole bear is sitting in front of me. It's like having a lovely conversation with a friend.

Speaking of a lovely conversation with a friend....I'd like to wish my girl, Brittany, a very Happy Birthday! Hi Bee!! I love you, beautiful girlie!! This is my favorite picture of Brittany. It was taken by my Mom on Brittany's wedding day this past August.
Warmest bear hugs, Aleta

I just love reading your blog...it's like sitting back with a lovely cup of tea and a wonderful old book. Oh...and Max still doesn't have any new siblings...the waiting...oh the waiting. Hugs,

Thank you, Shantell. You're a doll!! Wait, are you comparing me to an old book? Ha!

Warmest bear hugs, Aleta
