What I've been up to....

I had noticed... well, DAPHNE had noticed, that I was having some bad emotional side effects from my latest blood pressure medication... AGAIN! That's the 7th one gosh darn it!

It happens slowly so I don't notice right away. But my doctor said I could go a month without - I wanted to wait till after the big show before taking any more B/P medication - and boy does it feel nice to feel "normal" again. Well, normal for me LOL! This has been going on for a year - it's very tiring.

The show is in just 2 1/2 weeks! Yep, I'm still working on those souvenir bears, also my own bears for the show. We've got the buffet centerpieces worked out & the favors worked out. I wrote up the press release yesterday and Daphne tweaked it for me. (She's an AWESOME writer!) Now I just need to write up my cover letter and send them out!

I was working on getting a list of addresses of editors of newspapers and radio stations, when my darned email program had me re-log in again - ARGH! I lost all of them... and need to find them all over again today. Ah well....

Chicagoland Teddy Bear Show Souvenir Teddy Bear

I know you haven't heard from me very often.... but that should end soon! the Chicagoland Teddy Bear Show is coming up so fast now! Daphne and I started working on putting this show together so long ago -- July of last year. Now it's almost here!

There are a lot of things yet to be done. One of those projects is to finish these little guys ;) There will be some like this, and some with black tips.

He is the FREE souvenir bear for the first 25 collectors to sign up for the Harvest Buffet on Saturday night. We'll also have a silent auction during the dinner to benefit the Good Bears of the World.

The teddy bear show itself is on Saturday, October 24th - in Schaumburg, IL (a Chicago suburb) We'll have over 45 international artists! For more info - www.ChicagolandTeddyBearShow.com
