It is getting so close to Christmas and to the end of the year that I have decided to have a sale on my bears, I need to make room so that I can create some new ones. I have just put some bears a bunny and a very cute elephant on bear pile. They are all looking for new homes and their prices have been reduced by 30-40%
Blushful is anxiously waiting for her new mom or dad to adopt her.
I think if your trying to redesign the head Jenny that it takes a lot of playing around and tweeking. It's something that maybe you work on for a bit and set it down and then pick it up later on. I find when you spend to much time on something and it's not working out and you just become frustrated, if you put it down and leave it for awhile then go back at it with a clear head then issue or problems with it just jumps out at you. I think redoing a head has to be one of the hardest things to do and it does take time. So sometimes just put it down and walk away and then a day or two later just go back to it.
WOW could they have made that any more confusing. Thanks Katy and Joanne, that was so painful for me let me tell you. Just to add a simple little button. The tutorial was so vague and of course you can't get any help from blogspot.
Thanks again, at least people can email me easier this way.
Hi Joanne, when you say add a picture do you mean just a though I was doing a regular post? The way you are explaining it is exactly how the tutorial was describing how to do it. But it was never mentioned how it was actually done. I want to add a permanent email button on my sidebar.
I am not as frustrated today LOL, I am feeling better and no longer ready to jump off a bridge LOL.
Thanks and hugs
Ok I'm going to try and keep my frustrations to a min on this . I have wasted over two hours trying to add an email button to my blod. OMG I am ready to rip someones face off at google. You can't get any help, anytime you search for help it totally sends you in the opposite direction you want, you never get anything even remotely close that helps. UGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH.
I even went to the internet and found a great tutorial for adding an email button and even downloaded a lovely email button. The tutorial is for blogspot (which is what I am using) but but I can't follow the directions as nothing on my blog comes up even looking anything close to the tutorial. I can't seem to add a gadget unless I want to make money or sell something on Amazon or post something on YouTube. Then I'm told to add the image to my widgets, well guess what I don't have any widgets so how the h*** do you find widgets or gadgets and add them to your flippin blog.
I'm sorry I am ready to jump off a bridge at any moment , I can't remember the last time being this frustrated over a stupid program that is as useless as tits on a bull.
Ok gonna go and have a major drink now maybe two. But if you visit my blog and wanna email well guess what you can't .
Sorry but I needed to vent (still don't feel any better)
Thank you Jane so much for all your hard work, you are like our own little Teddy Talk roving reporting. I hope you are feeling better, I know you have a wedding coming up shortly :-).
Eddie I really don't think you need that red bear, as cute as it is LOL. I'm sure someone will be able to answer your question though lol.
I think it comes down to the bear itself. I myself don't usually buy a bear that's dressed, but one of Karen's I would be in a minute as all her bears are dressed so perfectly and they compliment her bears. Martha Burch makes some beautiful bears and the clothes are amazing as well. I like bears with a pair of pants on them or s simple dress. But most times I hate to cover up the mohair, although I have been contemplating doing some bears with just simple clothes, nothing to over the top.
To each their own, again it really depends on the bear.
Just wanted to let people know that I have set up a new facebook page under Little Bear Guy, http://www.facebook.com/LittleBearGuy
The old facebook page for the bear guys will be deleted over the week, so if you have liked that page please like my new one so I don't lose touch with anyone.
I found this online site, not sure if it's what your after.
Also found one on Amazon
Ed, the unofficial photographer for Hugglets is usually Jane Martin but I'm not sure if managed to take pictures this time or not. She is amazing when she does though there are sooooo many great pics that it does make you feel like you are there. It usually takes her a few days though to sort through and post them because there are so many .
I know what your plan is, you want to see pics so you can ooh and ahh and then see who has what left to buy
I started out doing them the same way as you did Sheree. But for the past few yrs, I put the joints in and then stuff and sew up the openings and pull the toes. I find it so much easier to do it that way. Then I attach all the limbs and stuff the body and voila all done. I think it's just a personal preference, everyone I'm sure has their own favourite way of stuffing.
I like a bear with weight to it, a friend of mine once told me when I wasn't putting enough weight in my bears that they had no soul. So I started putting steel shot in the tummies of my bears to give them soul. I prefer a bear with weight when I am collecting as well. It's a personal preference but I don't care for a bear that is to light in weight.
