Happy Fall................

everyone! This is my favorite time of year. Cool weather, windows open, pumpkin cookies making, homemade soups and all the other things I associate with Fall.

I have finally have finished some bears and bought a new camera to take pictures. So far it is taking pretty good pictures for the amateur that I am. I use to sell my bears on eBay but just recently joined esty.com (well actually last year but haven't done anything with my account). Well there is this group of artist that I joined in blog land and they sell their bears there. I am just wondering what the traffic is like there. Do you think it is like eBay? I love the idea of selling my handmade items on etsy. There are some wonderful artist there. You really need to check it out. I think with the way the economy is going that we all should start supporting these wonderful people who make handmade things. I think that is what we all should do this holiday season is buy homemade items and give to family and friends. Or sell your handmade items on etsy. I know I appreciate nothing more than the time and effort someone puts into their homemade gift. Everything has been getting so commercial these days. I think we need to get back to basics. Give me a handmade washcloth, or afghan or scarf and I am happy. I think that everytime you use these wonderful items from someone you think that person, which is a great thing. But that is just my opinion. What do you all think?

You can check out my etsy here: http://www.petschminibear.etsy.com/ Here's one of the pincushions I am making. The acorn is filled with emery powder to sharpen your pins and needles and is a real acorn cap from North Carolina. I just love these things. Let me know what you think of them.
Happy Fall!!!!!!

what I just put on etsy. These are knitting needles that I have started making. They have different animals heads crocheted by me and then attached to knitting needles. Aren't they cute? I just started making bear heads but then Gabby or Margaret said I should make bunnies and dogs and then I started getting orders. But these are extras I put on etsy. You can see them here: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=15173278

If you make handmade items, it's great to have a place like etsy to sell them on. I have a few bears to put on there. Just have to take some pictures, which I am not the best at, and my camera is not that good taking pictures of little things, like bears. Enjoy.

Starbuck's Insulated Cold Cup...............

Okay thanks to my oldest daughter, Patricia, I am obsessing over this stupid cup. I have to have one. Apparently they stop making them and only had them for the summer. Well, how on earth would I know that since there isn't a Starbuck's in Anderson. Which total sucks (excuse my French). When I do happen to pass a Starbuck's and get their Passion Fruit Lemonade Ice Tea, I always save the cup to use. Which I hardly ever get anymore, because I only shop in Anderson. I have to have one of these, please someone out there find me one for under $20.00. They are going for over $40 on ebay right now, can you believe that. Don't want to spend that much on it. But this is really a necessity for me. Please someone out there has got to have for me. I'll make you a bear or something. Okay I'm begging now..............................please..............find me one.............
