One of the pitfalls of being an artist if you do holiday pieces is that you have to start months in advance. I have been trying to get myself in the mood to do the Christmas bear I am working on. I have to get him done because I am doing an ad in the upcoming Teddy Bear & Friends that will be out in November.
The problem is I am not really in the mood for Christmas yet. Now if you're wondering why I have the snowman shown above...well it's because the bear isn't done and I had the snowman handy. So he got to have his pic taken for this post.
I made a whole bunch of them several years ago and gave them to everyone along with their presents. It's a little custom of mine. I always make some little trinket my friends and family can have right when I deliver their presents. You have to admit he is kind of cute though! I used to make a lot of yarn animals and snowmen. I haven't made any in a while. He actually has a bit of glitter on his embroidered snowflakes, but it doesn't show in the pic.
I have a little bird in the works for Halloween I would much rather be working on. But alas the Christmas ad is due in a few days so the bear must come first! You should probably be seeing him soon!
Fa la la la la la!
Back to work I go...sigh~
I hope you all had a lovely weekend! Hugs, K. <3
Oh and PS...I changed up my website again...just a tad! *Giggles* I have to fiddle with it constantly!
