No pity parties!!
One of the reasons for blogging, to me, is so that family and friends can see what's going on in my life. I realize that my last post was a bit of downer for some of you. My Mom even called me on Friday to say she was sorry that the Storybook Bears weren't being received well. (She's just the greatest Mom!!) My point was not to have a woe is me pity party.
I think an important part of my post was missed. I'm not a person to wallow in "Woe is me." I'm much more of a "Let's find a silver lining here!" kind of gal. There is always a silver lining to be found!! I went back to the place my bear business began. Ebay. Perhaps my current collectors aren't interested in this new line of bears. Who do I think I am anyway, thinking that my current collectors will just LOVE everything I do? I needed a good grounding!! And I got it!! ;o) This is me you see....with all my strengths and weaknesses. One of my greatest strengths is the ability to keep moving forward and taking with me what I've learned.
Okay, now onto pretty things!! A few posts back I mentioned that I was going to Fabric Depot for fabric to cover an old wicker chaise I found at Monticello. Well, my mission was accomplished!! I picked a pretty pink and white check upholstery fabric. It's a perfect balance for a room filled with florals and polka dots!! It will be soooo pretty. Now you know I'll share a picture when it's done!!
Gotta dash off now. I'm on a mission to find a child size tea pot!! Have a marvelous Sunday!!
Warmest bear hugs, Aleta
