What a busy computer day! My etsy shop is now all set up and running. I had planned on having four bears up for sale, but it didn't quite worked out that way--which in no way has been a bad thing. One bear sold. Another bear is on hold. And the third bear, Chiparoo, is staying in our hug for a while. As I was preparing Chip for etsy, our 11 year old pleaded with me to keep him for a while because she "might want him for Christmas." So Chip has found a cozy spot in our corner cabinet for the time being!
However, one pretty girl did make it on etsy today. Cassie is the lone bear in my etsy shop and ready to find a new home--she's such a cuddly, fluffy girl at 13 1/2 inches with her long golden beige mohair. Update on 8/3/09. Cassie has been adopted.
I'm expecting that she should have company with at least one other bear in the next week or so.
I also thought I would show you Charlie, the bear that sold today. He's an 11 1/2 inch, vintage-style bear with a very soulful expression. I had fun working on his hand coloring and distressing. I think he turned out quite well.
Have a great day!
