This is a little bear I just finished for a Christmas present. (Ok so I'm running a little late LOL)
My son (he is 17) designed this bear for his friend.
She is a huge fan of the band Widespread Panic - - so he wanted a "panic" bear for a gift for her.
The logo on Panic's tummy is called the Note Eater.

Panic bear is axp 5" and made out of mohair with an ultra suede tummy inset and paw pads. The appliques are made out of velvet and suede.

I have been tagged!
By Sherrie of and
Laura Lynn of

Now I must share 5 interesting things about my self that no one knows.

1) I look and feel like that picture in the morning until I have coffee and wake up.
2) I love and collect strange vintage looking bobble head Halloween decorations.
3) I make up and sing weird songs on a whim. (I don't sing very well so it drives my family crazy!)
4) I love all types of styles - vintage, primitive, anime, traditional, quirky etc. And I have several projects in various mediums started in each of these categories.
5) I have two dogs that follow me around and are always touching the back of my knee. When I turn around to walk in a different direction it is like pushing a revolving door.

Now I'm suppose to pick people that I would like to know more about, so tag you're it! Please list five things about yourself & then tag five other friends.

Every feel a little bit snow flakey?
This is a little snowflake pin. She is apx 2"
Her body is made like a paper doll - out of felt and card stock. Her hand and shoes are clay and her head is cloth covered clay.
I made her for a Winter pin doll swap.
My kids think that I have totally lost it and that she is the "weirdest" thing I have every made.
I guess she must extremely weird then because they think that my sock monkeys are pretty strange too. LOL Oh well. Sometimes you just gotta make something that is a little off the wall :o)

Christmas Pin Doll Swap
Before Christmas I participated in a pin doll swap.
The theme was Elves or Santa.
Here is the little elf that I made and the one I received.
Mine arrived first so they got to play, tell secrets and talk about Santa until the little bear elf was sent away to her new owner.
The elf was made by Kelly.
I just love him.
Thank you again Kelly!
