Small Changes to Website

Although I have fun "playing" with my website - it is very time consuming. Right now I need all the time I can find to make bears!

Last night I figured out another way to cut down on the time it takes to add new bears to my website. (Originally it would take over an hour to add a bear to my site!)

I have added a "Flickr Badge" of the available bears to my Bears for Adoption page.

A "Flickr Badge" automatically displays photos that you have chosen from your Flickr account. Since I upload my photos to Flickr anyways, it made good sense to me.

I just had to make the badge code one time, it adjusts the photos as I add them. I do my website myself - and I do it by writing code by hand. I don't use a program. Less time "coding" means more time for bears! I hope you still enjoy visiting my website!!

2 New Bears & a Bunny!!

I'm hoping my goal for 2008 is in progress... getting bears done :) I've finished up 2 Pocket Bears and a Half Pint Bunny. If you'd like to visit them on my website they'd love to see you!

Parting with Some Mohair.....

Like many artists... I tend to hoard my supplies - especially mohair! I thought I'd try to sell some of it on ebay before the pile tumbles down on top of me LOL!

If you are interested, you can find it here.

Winter is almost over.... and then.....

DOWN she goes.......

I swear, the ice will all be melted by the end of this week, and I have not had one accident this entire cold, snowy, icy winter... but this weekend I slipped and fell.

I was taking my Girls out and slipped on some ice in the back yard that was covered by a very thin layer of snow.

I really messed my knee up and couldn't walk -- but it's healing up now.

It was very annoying... as I hate to ask other people to do things for me.

This photo I found on Flickr. Isn't it cool? Photography and Flickr are one of my hobbies that I don't have as much time for as I'd like.

New Bear for Adoption!

Sorry I was a day late with the website update - but he's here finally!
This is Nutmeg. He's a brother to Cricket made a couple of years ago. He's 9 1/2" tall and can stand up all by himself. He is currently looking for a new home. There is more information about him on my website.

New Bear Coming WEDNESDAY!!!!

Yes, finally -- a new bear will be posted on my website on Wednesday. I am so sorry for the long delay. I've been working on special orders, but have decided that I need to fit website bears in there too.
