Stars and Stripes Forever!!! New Tear Bear On Ebay

We are very much a patriotic family, so I had to make this cute bear fit for the occasion. My bears are available on Ebay. My bears are dimensional paper piecings. If interested in the auctions just click on the button on the top right, it will take you there.

We are going camping again...yeah!! We plan on going near Leavenworth Washington in the forest. It is very pretty there and I will be sure to take lots of pics to share. Leavenworth is one of my favorite places. It looks like an old German town.

I have been really busy with work. I started a new class that is in the mornings. So my hours have changed a bit. This doesn't allow for me make a bear every day, but I will try and bring something new every week.

Have a blessed day!!

I have the beach layout complete

I haven't added my pictures yet but I have a layout completed for myself...yeah!! I have years to do.....lol.... I have usd the same style bears that I offer for sale on Ebay. You are more than welcome to scraplift for personal use only.

A title has not been added, as I feel that not all pages require a title...simply put!! ;)

Jolee's were added to add that fun small stuff. Sometimes buying that small stuff is just better than making it. (smiles) The big beach ball on the left page that is tucked away is the journaling tag. It has small cherries scattered on it.

Hope you enjoy the layout.

Have a blessed night!

Paper Pieced Baby Pool With Tear Bear on Ebay

Good morning to all!!

I have designed a new pool and have it available on Ebay tonight. It will come with the sitting bear in her cute, orange tankini. I have also shown what the standing bear with the beach ball would or could look like together.

I love to make paper piecing patterens!! The pool measures 5.5 x 8.5 inches and was designed by me. I hope to have my paper piecing patterns available one day soon. I just have to figure out how to get my drawings into the program and make the files. If you have any information in this area please e-mail me.

Have a blessed day!

Orange tankini with polka dots with a personal page idea

Okay, this little one will be out tonight and you could do one of those citrus layouts with her. Or I have given you an idea for personal use with my layout that is in progress. Nothing is glued or sewn yet so I can still play with it's arrangement, and add other goodies. I do like how it has lot's of movement to it. Also the big beach ball on the left is a pull out that will serve a journaling spot.

One of my goals when I create a page is to make sure that there is still some of that beautiful paper showing after I place my pictures. I often see great designer pages that look wonderful, but then I visually place pictures and all the beautiful papers are all covered up. So that is why my layouts are created the way they are. I also want to keep the eye's moving.

Hope you all have a blessed day!!

I will bring more color sets in the weeks to follow. If you have a color set idea leave a message for me.

Have a blessed day.

My Tear Bear order is complete

This was fun and challenging all at the same time...lol...then my dear customer wrote me this morning and said to take my time....lol... I laugh because I thought I had to have to her by the 10th and I was in crazy mod last week getting them done.....lol...so when she wrote me I was just going on to write her and tell her that they are in the mail today.

But any how here they are she was going for the era of the 50's. This is representing a dear friend of hers and the family. There are mom and dad, and the children , various ages. There were also a few paper piecings I made to go with a few of them.

Anne, if you are reading this I hope they are everything you imagined. (smiles)

Hope you all have a blessed day. But I must get to making a bear for ebay tonight, and then there is work this afternoon.

I just made my first lollipop flowers

Okay, I just had to share my new flowers that I just finished. I didn't even let the stickles dry.....lol... They are a lot of fun to make, but they are not the fastest flower to make. There are several steps to making them, and this is what makes them time consuming. These here are 3 inches ea.

Have a blessed day.

Pug and Tortoise napping in the morning sunshine

I know this isn't scrapping, but it is a memory to be scraped. I just had to show you these two members of our family sharing this strip of sunshine coming in the bay window of the dining room. Sometime's though they fight over the spot....lol....the pug 9 (Pinky) barks at Flash (tortoise's name) as they fight for this strip.

Well I have been very busy with my custom order and have it almost done. I haven't been able to list reg. on Ebay but will soon. I think it is already slowing there for the summer, or maybe my recent bears are not of interest.....lol......who knows I just love making them.

Hope you all have a blessed day.

Scrapbooking and Paper Piecing

Not a lot going on today, just the same ole hum drum of daily living. I am thinking about changing what I sell on ebay. My mind has been swimming with idea's as how to better utilize my blog with my creations. Here in the future I think I am going to be selling designer page kits and my bears as well as some of my own creations with textured cardstock.

Designer page kit's will have all the pieces cut for you and all you have to do is assemble it. These are great for taking to crops, or those who just don't have a lot of time, or love the thought of scrapbooing but just don't know where to begin. They will also make great gifts.

I will provide a picture to the buyer. Because not every person wants tear bears as cute as they can be, my page kits will not have the bears they will be an additional item that one could buy. As I did a survey with my friends at church and family, and they love my pages they just are not into the bears. So look to the future for these kits. And they won't be but maybe one a week as I am a very busy mom...lol.... :)

I am also going to start adding more of my paper pieicngs, so be on the look out for them. These above are a couple that I designed.

Have a blessed day!!
