WooHoo! My Christmas Indulgence Giveaway winner is Amanda of Pandy Potter Bears! As soon as I receive your address, Amanda, the package will go zipping through the mail to you. At least it will go as "zippy" as it can this time of year!
And for all of you who entered this giveaway, remember you will receive an extra entry in my upcoming bear giveaway! I can't tell you exactly when that will be, because I haven't even started it. But, you see, I have all sorts of surprises up my sleeve. And since you are here and I'm in a bit of a chatty mood, I'm going to let you in on them!
I've already told you that I'm starting work on 2 patterns that will be available from Etsy--one of an elephump and one of a bear. And you know that the current plans for the bear are that it will be 12 inches of a lovely honey tan mohair. I'm thinking he will be a cute little vintage-style bear, but you do know that bears tell us bear makers what they want to become. So, we'll just have to be patient to see who he becomes.
Well, the elephump is a bit more certain. He's going to be from Toffee's pattern (I've had a LOT of requests for his pattern) in a scrumptious vintage pale purple mohair. He's going to be in a giveaway as well, but that giveaway will be only for my mailing list members. You see, I'm just finishing up the final touches on my formal website that I will soon unveil. People who sign up to be on my mailing list will receive email newsletters with the first information and inklings about available Bingle Bears. If you are interested, you can sign up on my soon-to-be-website or on my blog. In fact, you may already have noticed it on the top right of the sidebar. I'm just so excited--I'm almost giddy!
Heaps of Hugs,
P.S. Alfie and Sebastian have been adopted. Alfie should be arriving to his new home in North Carolina today and Sebastian will soon be taking a similar route.
