beary busy birthday week!

Juds bears
crazy busy!  Heres a picture above of the bears that I made from Sue Reaneys husband's clothing.  They turned out so sweet.  Kat wanted hers to have a colored nose.  I enjoyed making sues bears and I hope that the family members that will be receiving them for christmas will love them.   Ive made 25 bears in the past few weeks and am finishing up the last 3 this weekend.

Im glad that they bring so much comfort and joy to people.   With this last order I am also making 10 Santa star ornaments, also made out of clothing.  I'll post when finished. 
I really cant wait to get busy on some of my own christmas projects!

So in between the bears, we had bethanys 27th birthday dinner this week.  I only took 3 pics and two didnt turn out well.. but this one of torry liking my ice cream and cake better then his is pretty funny!  And tonight I get to babysit for my marla pie!  I'll have her all to myself!  woohoo!  I'll be sure to get a good pic of her.. she is getting so freaken big! 
I like yours better gammie!
Today is Torry pies 2nd birthday! woohoo!!  God I love my grandbabies!
Bethany and Big Torry have a big party planned for him, so I'll be sure to get pictures there too.. He's going to be overwhelmed though.  
so for now, I'm off to make the cupcake toppers then I have to do some very quick shopping to get the rest of his present, then home to make a salad to take, then off to help set up for the party..   another busy day.  
but its all good, I think I thrived on that.  Went shopping with my two besties last night right after work, and was able to pick up a bunch of christmas presents.. still soooo much to do though!
happy saturday girlies!

I just love his curls! He is too cute! I'd be driving him nuts twirling my fingers in his hair. Tehe....What a lovely idea for Sue to have you make bears out her husband's clothes, how precious will those bears be to the receivers. I follow Sue on fact her pinings are how I found Elizebeth's blog which led me to you & the rest of you dear ladies. Have a great weekend

You are a WHIRLWIND! I had to stop & take a few deep breaths, my Vivvy, after reading all you did and are STILL doing! I think the bears are absolutely WONDERFUL! I also love the sweet kitties who are HELPING you! LOL! Torry is TWO??? Good grief! Wasn't he just BORN yesterday??? They grow up way too fast! Glad you get to babysit your Marla-pie! Have a BEAUTIFUL weekend, and remember to BREATHE! Kai loves you!

Those bears are wonderful, Vivian. I had to laugh at Torry eating your dessert ~ my granddaughter does the same. I've just got a few more presents to get. Mainly for the hubster and I'll wrap that up next week.

I love your bears.
Happy Birthday Torrie Pie. My Quinny was 3 yesterday. When we called he was so excited talking about balloons and the fire station house that we got him. It was so cute listening to him. His Daddy told him that we got him the fire station. I could hear him say, " Grammy got dis for me." I love that he get it all now. Have fun busy lady. You are always running here or there but having lots of fun. I will be posting soon about the swap. Have you gotten your package yet?
