Trying out a new design is always a risk. Sometimes it works out and sometimes, for whatever reason, it doesn't. My Storybook Bears turned out to be a huge risk. A jump that landed with a resounding thud!
I'll be honest, I'm used to having my bears sell pretty quickly. I've been very lucky to have such wonderful and devoted collectors. For this I am forever grateful. With this in mind, I am left to wonder.
Is it the bears? Is it the price? Is it the fact that I used the same pattern when my collectors are used to "One of a Kind." Are the ears crooked? The eyes crooked? Goofy noses? These and more questions pound away in my head!! I have a splitting headache and I'm cranky!!
So, what do I do? I change the plan a bit!! Afterall, I just spent a month on these little darlings and I have to pay for my trip to the TOBY awards. I'll let the collectors tell me if this design is worth continuing. I've decided to list each bear separately on eBay in the coming weeks. Gosh, it's been so long since my last listing on eBay.....I wonder if I remember how to do it? Well, no time like the present!! Off I go.....
Warmest bear hugs, Aleta
