Break from the Pressure

I am officially taking a break. An artistic break, that is.

I feel as though I have been spinning my wheels, trying to force something out of nothing.

I think taking a break from commission work and from pressuring myself to produce, produce, produce will bring back a bit of the joy that comes with raw creation.

Time to get back in touch with my own muse in my own way.

If I make something new, I'll post it for your perusal.

If I don't make anything, that will be OK, too.

I'll be reading all of your posts during this downtime because I enjoy them so much, so don't be surprised to see me in your comments section.

Until I am rejuvenated, take good care and enjoy life!

Come Adopt Me!

I'm not ignoring you....

I am waiting for you to come and adopt me!

I promise to be quiet and not make any messes.

I don't eat much and am reasonably priced.

Sweet Pea

Hooray! Sweet Pea is finally posted on eBay.

I am still a novice to eBay. I know how to BUY from problemo there!

It is the "tagging" that baffles me every time.

(Tail wagging, I understand!)

Sweet Pea ended up being listed under collectibles, though I think she would have done better listed under artist teddy bear. That is the market that would most likely find her interesting.

But how does one list a dog as a bear?

Not to be confused with a dog AND a bear, which would be an easy listing.

Any tips from the seasoned eBayers out there? Pretty please? I know I am not listing things correctly, but I am at a loss to fix things up!

I hope you all out there have been having a great creative month so far! Keep it up!

Best wishes to all! Thanks for popping in for a spell.

Here is my latest bear pattern.
I made him so that he would be a perfect little handful. He has a plumpy little bottom, jointed legs/arms/head, and a swoopy nose.
This one is made of sparse blonde mohair and is stuffed with wool and shot.
Hope you like him!
Thanks so much for dropping by.
Until next time, happy hand sewing!
