bears and babies...

 Do you get tired or seeing the same old same old here?   Im deep in over my head almost in bear making.  Ive finished all of these over the last few weeks.   thats three  single orders in the first pic.

 These 6 bears were made for my mother in law who lost her brother this year.

 These three were made for a woman whos husband died a couple years ago.  He happened to be the director of social services where I work.  

 And this giant order went to Jane Palmer a bloggy facebook friend!   I have a bunch more orders to do.  a young mother 36 years old died unexpectedly a few weeks ago leaving behind 5 children.  sooo sad!   and 2 orders of 4 and another order of 5!  Plus 18 santa/elf ornaments.  so Im not sure if I'll get to do any christmas crafting!  Not complaining though.  Im thankful for the orders and the exposure. 

 so, I know you already saw the base pics for these photos.. but Im addicted to picmonkey and had to play there a little bit!  

 arent they sweet? 

 oh...  I can never leave anything alone.. everything gets dressed up and decorated!  LOL!

I do soooo ADORE all my little grandpies!

Ok then.. I shall be off... gotta go sew for an hour before I leave for work..  
but just one more thing...     
we have been very lucky the past couple days, because while our neighbors, some starting at only 15 miles south and also to the south west are getting slammed with 70 plus inches of snow and are in states of emergency.. we have not gotten any.....

Our turn will come for sure at some point.  I feel bad for all the people who are stranded on the thruways..   it is seriously a disaster and I am praying for all those stranded people.  I just can not imagine being stranded like that!
let me just say I am sooooooo grateful that we were spared!
Happy Wedesday my bloggy pies!

All your bears look great, Vivian. I am sure all the recipients will treasure them. Your grands are too cute. I love how you dressed up your pictures of them. I got to see mine for a little bit yesterday after having been sick. I feel much better and was starting to have withdrawal from not seeing her!

Your bears are adorable. You've been a busy lady! Glad you still can find time for your grands in between all your sewing. We've had significant snowfall (enough to close all our schools yesterday) but we don't have it nearly as bad as your neighbors. Prayers to those stranded!

Don't know how you do it. I made 12 baby back packs once and it just about killed me!

I just love this idea. I wish I could sew.
I am in love with the brown plaid bear and the yellow bow tie. He is the cutest ever.
Bless your heart for doing these special bears.

I've been thinking of you today and wondered aloud to my husband if you had gotten slammed. Glad to hear you are out of the woods for the time being.

Fabulous bears! Sorry some are for such sad circumstances though. Those pies look adorable eith their little red noses, lol.

Love all your bears and they bring comfort to the owners on so many levels. Everything will work out and I'm sure you'll get to some crafting fun. If not, as long as you enjoy your kids and grand pies, that's all that matters! Maggie

The bears are awesome. I don't know how you do it. My daughter works in foster care/ adoption. It's a tough field.

I always love seeing the bears you make, Viv! Don't know how you manage to work, and sew, and watch your grandpies, and craft...
I suppose that's why you're up at 4:00AM blogging and making bears!
lol Hope you get some time for tea and rest in there too!

All of your bears are so cute!! You've been very busy making them, there are so many!! :) Cute pictures of your grands :) We had about 8 inches of snow last week and over the weekend it's all melted and lots of rainy weather yesterday and today...but snow is in the forecast for tomorrow and the rest of the week! I'd rather see the pretty white stuff! :) Wishing you a very Happy Thanksgiving!! xo Holly

Your bears are the sweetest! I have a thing for bears lately and my those grandbabies are adorable! I'm going to have to check out the pic monkey thingy.

I used to have a herd of plastic cows displayed on my kitchen windowsill. Everytime I turned around they were doing something disgusting! Kids!
