Back to Blogging

Getting the hang of the blogging thing really takes getting used to. I've learned that some people are very casual about it, and others are very dedicated. I've decided that in order to keep it interesting, for both myself and others, it's got to be something that is done on a fairly routine basis. I, myself, tend not to keep going back and checking on blogs that I generally enjoy if nothing new is posted for a long period of time.

In light of that, I thought I'd start sharing some of the photos of some of my bears, both past and present. Hopefully, I'll see comments about what people like and dislike. I'm also thinking that it will help me keep coming up with ideas and staying focused on doing what I truly enjoy - making bears.

My first photo is of a bear I call "Nuthead". My husband actually calls it that, because of the large acorn top that I used as a hat. His uncle, whom I love dearly, is always coming up with nifty finds, and knows how much I enjoy them. When he showed me these large acorns, I knew immediately what I would use them for. The end result was even better than I had hoped.

His uncle was quite pleased with the use of the acorn tops as well, and I'm pleased to be able to show you them as a hat on one of my favorite bears.
