One of the good things about being small!

The really neat thing about these little bears is that they go so well with other little things! Yesterday, on a trip to Virginia Beach to have my hair done (yep, I travel an hour to get to the best beautician in the world) I found two Christmas ornaments that are just perfect with Little Santa! One of the ornaments was the sleigh, and the other was the stack of presents!
Little Santa told me he'd better get going if he's going to make it all the way to Hunt Valley in two weeks 'cause his legs are kinda short!

Candy corn counts as a vegetable, right?

Sometimes, you've just gotta laugh!! When I read the "tweet" which is the title of this post and seeing Frodo relaxing in my chair - I laughed out loud. Now isn't that the best thing to do?!!
Kim calls Frodo "Bendi Straw" because he is the most supple, bendable little creature - well, not so little anymore. Here he is from another angle:
Wishing you all lots of candy corn, a Frodo or two, and lots of laughs!!

A New Bear - A little Smile

It seems that the bear you've just finished is always the favorite. This time, I am in love! This little lad is meant to sit upon one of my clay leaves and he has that sweetest of smiles. He is rather Pooh-ish in color and is just a little dear. I expect he'll be going to Hunt Valley, but sometimes, they are just too sweet to part with!

Hunt Valley, Here We Come!!!

The crowd is gathering on the "waiting for my outfit" shelf in my workroom! I have so many exciting little ones just waiting to see whether they will be going to Hunt Valley or participating in the Teddies Worldwide online show.
I visited Jason and his kitties a week ago and we (well, not the kitties) went to a miniatures show held in Tyson's Corner. I bought an adorable little carriage, some wagons, small toys for Santa's sack, and a sleigh to entertain my little ones.
My philosophy is always - start with what can't be changed, and work with it! So. The adorable little carriage requires a very tiny "doll bunny" - and here she is in progress!
I promise lots of sneak peeks in the days ahead!

Fun With Photos!

Pierre - Art Poster
Pierre - Glamour Glow

Pierre - Old Photo
I've been having fun at the site with this favorite photo of Pierre, who is on his way to his new home in Illinois along with Hermione. I've shown some of the effects you can use on with the app I have on my Iphone. Well, if you go to the web site, choose the first option for working with the pictures, then apply the filters, you can really have some magical fun! The photos above have the name of the filter just after Pierre's name.
One of the most fun is a filter called Kaleidoscope! And did I mention, it's free!

And I think I have to add just one more:

Pierre - Heat Map
Too cool, eh?
