Checking in!

Just thought I would check in quickly. I have a horrid cold/bug/virus so I'm extra crabby as the Doll show is on Sunday and I don't want to be sick for it! I have to put the finishing touches on 3 more bears.... but I am ready! Everything else is packed and sitting by the door waiting. Now I just need something to get rid of this bug!!!

If you are in the Edmonton area please stop by! It's a fun show with lots of dolls, bears and other goodies to buy.


Lots more happening here and Saturday Oct 1st is the start of the Trick or Treat Tour!! I have 4 Brand new pieces made just for the tour and I am very excited about them. Be sure to check it out!!!

So next is Halloween and getting ready for the Teddies World Wide Christmas show... It's difficult to think about Christmas when everything is Halloween right now! lol.
Hugs,
Melanie

Working working working....

The deadline for the Trick or Treat Studio Tour is just around the corner and I am happy to report 4 Brand new critters will be making their debut! Tonight will be spent on accessories and if I have time I will do my photo shoot as well. I am VERY excited and happy with what I've managed to accomplish the past few weeks.
Next is the Doll show! Yikes, it's in three short weeks!

I shall leave you with a few photos of  my little terrors..





Hugs!

Easing the pain by saving some wee lives


My heart hurts from the loss of my Motty and it opens up the wounds of loosing Spooky all over again. I know my 2 friends I'm missing so much would be so concerned to see me in such rough shape, Motley would be sitting on my lap nudging me and looking at me with love... Spooky would be resting a big head on my knee, looking at me in wonder of why I was so sad... I try to think of that when I start crying all over again.
Over the weekend what came across my path was a pile of feral malnourished kittens... I won't get into how or why, but winter is coming very quickly here and I knew these little souls would not make it through the winter without adequate food or shelter. A few phone calls to my family at home and I was told I could choose 2 of the little ones to bring back to the office with me.

So let me introduce Lilly and Angel. 





We are smitten and although they don't fill the hole left, it really does help as a distraction.. and I can take some comfort in the fact that they won't be starving outside in the cold... Adding yet more kittens to the world that there are no homes for. I wish people would spay and neuter their animals... but I guess that is another rant. We will be going to the vet as I'm sure they both have ear mites, maybe worms and need to be spayed.. although Angel is still way too tiny for that. She is very bony and tiny for her age and needs to put on a huge amount of weight.

We have a long weekend coming up here so I will be spending it finishing off my pieces for the Trick or Treat tour. Fall has really come quickly here and today is the first day I've had to wear a jacket since spring. I will likely have to turn the furnace back on tonight but I have been resisting.. lol. 
Hope you are all having a wonderful week,
Hugs,
Melanie
