Work in progress

Thought I'd let you peek at a few things on my work table today.
I have another new bear waiting to be dressed.

She is such a lovely color. 
We're off now to explore my embarrassingly large fabric stash so she can tell me what she likes.  I doubt she'll listen to my opinion though ~ she hasn't got an ears yet!  Oh dear, I fear I'm feeling rather whimsical today ~ this could get interesting.

Oh ~ and look what I found for another
of my Holiday Bears to wear!  

She is still only a pile of body parts
resting in a basket next to my sewing chair,
but I'm thinking she'll be in a fur trimmed coat
and perhaps a muff too.

She will be in the upcoming
Holiday Show on Nov 5th and 6th.

We can all take a page from Dolores' Book

Just a quick reminder that the
begins in one week.

You'll have to wait until Saturday October 1st
to enter the site for the
3rd year of Halloween Trick or Treating
with international artists displaying their incredible seasonal art!

And here's a peek at the Spell Book
that will come with my witch bear,
Dolores Hogswallow.

Sixteen pages of fun little spells and potion recipes
sure to bring a smile to your face.

I do hope you all will stop by and see what
other Halloween treats I and
the other artists have to offer. 

There will even be a door prize for one lucky winner!

If you just can't wait, you can visit the blog for this event
for more sneak peeks right now!

An Early Treat ~ Trick-or-Treating Mice Available NOW!

As I have informed you earlier, I am taking part in the October 1st
Halloween Artists' Studio Trick-or-Treat Tour and Show

But it seems I have over produced on the mice, as the show only permits an artist to display up to 4 items.  

That means I have some Trick-or-Treating Mice available now!


There will be more mice available in the show ~ including
another vampire and coffin.  
These were too much fun to make to stop at one.

While talking with my daughter a few days ago, the conversation included a reminiscence of how at the age of 2, she watched the video of The Wizard of Oz every single night.  This went on for 18 months (really) and believe it or not, was actually somewhat of a welcomed relief for her father and I, since her previous obsession had been with The Nutcracker Ballet – the Mikhail Baryshnikov version no less (really).  Mr. Cobblestone and I know every blooper in the Oz video ~ and I bet you never noticed how many birds are in that movie!

Anyway, this led to a discussion about how perhaps her generation has missed out on the excitement of anticipation.  I mean, they practically had loads of entertainment at their fingertips ~ and now information as well, thanks to the www.

Let's take The Wizard of Oz for example.  I distinctly remember the frenzied excitement we experienced all week waiting for that night.  We played Oz games at recess.  We walked linked arm in arm a la Dorothy, Tin man, Scarecrow and Lion.  We sang the songs from morning to night, much to our parents' delight, I'm sure.  But I think part of the fun was the buildup to that magical night when finally those cute little munchkins were on your very own TV screen. 
Oh, how you savored every minute!
(Well, except for those flying monkeys, but we aren't going into that now.  Let's just say it necessitated a well-timed bathroom break.)

Well, I kind of feel like I'm doing that to you now, dear followers.  It is true that I have not had anything new to show you for quite some time.  My work table has been quite busy ~ overflowing in fact with all sorts of holiday goodies.  I have just completed my Halloween offerings ~ but I cannot show all of them now because they are to be part of the

But I will share little one preview with you.

Meet Dolores Hogswallow, my witch bear with her
book of Magic Potions and Spells and her Batty friend,
who sometimes hitches a ride on Dolores' back.

I hope you will all be able to attend the event. 
It is in support of Bat Conservation International
and promises to be loads of fun.
There is even a door prize!

Only 19 more days until the tour begins on October 1st!

I know it's hard to wait ~ but, hey ~ you can always pop in a video while you're waiting.
