Making Christmas..... lol.



This will be the next few weeks for me




as I'm now participating in the Teddies Worldwide Christmas show.. 
Always seem strange to be making Christmas at Halloween.. but then I just go back to this song and it all makes sense. lol. 

Speaking of Halloween. I need to start decorating! I'm so behind on everything. I hope it warms enough to put the cemetery up in the next week or so. I don't want to put it up too early. It started snowing the other day.... Hopefully, and this is a MAJOR finger crossing moment, that it's nice out on Halloween. Last year we had a huge windstorm and the power went out. It was stressful and many of my props got knocked over and wrecked in the process. 

Anyway, enough rambling on... I keep nodding off here in the studio so I'm going to get some rest and hopefully start fresh tomorrow and get at least one new bear made. 

Hugs, Melly

Insomnia = mobile blogging

So. I can't sleep again. So I decided to see if they made an app for blogger for my phone lol. Sometimes I think of the weird things insomniacs do to keep themselves occupied when they don't sleep. Mine always seems to be internet based. Lol
Tonight I traced on 2 new bears. And started to design a new dragon.. And I went on a hunting spree trying to find the piece of felt that I wanted to use in the dragon. I didn't find it. It all my felt is in one container. So I really have no idea were it got misplaced. I must've accidentally put it in the wrong tote. I guess I will keep looking or will have to order something else.... Bugger.
It's pouring rain tonight. I can hear it on the roof. It's very close to freezing though so we may wake up with a foot of snow. I really hope not lol!
Anyway, looks like the mobile blogging thing works. I better try to get some sleep. Hugs!

ho hum, ho hum...



Been having a Craptastic day today... Didn't get everything I wanted to get done accomplished.. but I got the basement paint almost totally done and finished sanding the holes in the bathroom.

I'm dyeing my hair back to bright red again now that my bear shows are done for the year. I have a couple bears to get up for sale still. Maybe I can get that done tomorrow. They have sort of an Alice in wonderland feel to them... I think I just need to make an Alice to go with them. :)

Had a good Turkey day yesterday but I came home and was so tired so I went to bed and started and finished the book The Perks of Being a Wallflower.. which was very good. They recently  turned this book into to a movie and of course it's only playing on the other end of the city.. I will have to see if anyone loves me enough to be dragged to see it.. lol!

So other than that it's going to be a few busy weeks of sewing! Don't forget that the Trick or Treat Studio tour is still on!!!!!! I have one piece left for sale.. although I've been trying my best to get one more piece added before the cut off.. the impending snow, house renos and other engagements have kept me away from my studio this weekend again.



Hugs!

The things I am thankful for.




It's Thanksgiving here in Canada and this year I am thankful for so many things. Last year I knew I had to make a huge change in my life. I had given up on life, I just accepted the fact that it was never going to get better.  I am thankful for all the wonderful people in my life who stood by me these past years when I was struggling so often. I'm thankful for my friend who was there for me when I thought for sure I was going to crack. I'm thankful to the person who made me realize that nothing was worth what I was going through and life could get better... and who then was there when I thought for sure I wasn't going to be able to make it through. I am thankful for my family who swooped in and helped me pick up the pieces when things were all said and done.
This year life is so much better.. It was a huge adjustment and I had some very difficult days.... but almost a year later and I no longer dread get getting up in morning or coming home at night. My home is now filled with laughter, friends and family... I am beyond thankful for that.

Hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving day. I hope each of you has someone you love to share the day with. 

What are you thankful for this Thanksgiving? 

I will leave you with a few pics from the Edmonton Doll show. It was a fun day.. although quite slow this year due to some other events that were on at the same time.
