Holiday Photo

We went to florida on our hols this year and Ive just had the photos back this week. Here is my favorite of the 5 of us. I have 150 photos on my little camera but we had a photopass at the disney parks where you get photographers to take your pictures and then you can have them sent to you on a disc. I have another 150 on there. I don't want to bore you with hundreds of our pics but I will pop a few on here for my own benefit

Need to get sorted

I have spent a couple of hours tonight sorting. I can't believe I have so much stuff ( well I did buy it all...). I have so much craft stuff that its everywhere. I need to either use it or loose it. ( Thats a good saying). I did make my first card in over a year the other day and I actually really enjoyed it so who knows, it is Christmas soon so I have the perfect excuse. I also have so many tools and equipment for making my bears that Im forever searching for them so I have sorted all of that out into a cool storage bag today. Im hoping it gives me more time to actually create something...

Here is a picture of my latest bear. His name is Vinnie and he is from my Hairy Hoodlam collection. He hs huge feet and a big tummy and he is very laid back.

Meet J J

Just while Im taking photos today of a new bear called Vinnie I happened upon a picture of a bear I made earlier in the year. His name is JJ and he was adopted in Stratford Upon Avon at the Teddy Bear Artist event. I haven't put his picture up on my website yet so here he is. I love this style of bear as they can be posed in lots of different ways.



I hope you like him.

A week on facebook..

I joined facebook last Saturday as I said in my last post and already I have 40 friends. Now alot are my family but Ive been amazed how many people I have got in touch with who I knew from school or worked with years ago. Ive had quite a few chats with some great people and it has been great. I always said I would never join the likes of facebook as I didn't see a point to it but I do now. It keeps you in touch with people. We all lead really busy lives and its too easy to live in a little world of your own but its great speaking to lots of different people too. I have found photos of me on facebook that I didn't know were there. A girl I was in school with had pictures in her albums that had me on the last day of school and a class photo from junior school.

Last day of school

There was 9 of us who hung round together and went all the way through school from infants to high school being friends.

We had a reunion in 2000 and we all met up again. Then we lost touch. I have been in touch with 2 this year through a school reunion and now through facebook I have found more people I was in school with. It has been a great week and it has brought back loads of memories.

Getting Teckie

My kids laugh at me and tell me "Im not with it". Well Ive suprised myself today and opened a flickr account. It is a website where you can put lots of your photos so that people can see them. I have uploaded 200 of my previous creations to this account and if you look on my side bar you can be taken to my flickr account to see them. Im so chuffed I did this. It may seem a little thing to some of you out there but believe me this is a major thing in my cappabilities. Lets see what else I can do when I put my mind to it......

Edited: Ive just joined facebook now, my kids will wonder whats happened to me......
