A positive thread for us to focus on what we're looking forward to in 2007!

Something important, something silly, something big, something small, something in the distance, something near, whatever it is, let's share it in here!

I have a very simple one, next week I'm looking forward to getting my house back to normal and settling down to making a big bear, just because I want to, not because it's on order for someone!  :dance:

I'm looking forward to doing a few bear shows this year. Also, the end of January will mark exactly 1 year since I made my very first bear! I'm also looking forward to the profile TBCI magazine is going to be doing on me in the near future!!

BUT, most of all.....I'M GETTING MARRIED IN AUGUST 2007!!!!!  bear_shocked  bear_grin  :dance:

Hi Paula

I cannot wait to get back into the swing of bear making again, I think my head is going to explode with ideas, but as usual never enough time to put them into action.  Maybe 2007 will be different and my resolution should be to find time.

I am looking forward to 2007 as this will be the first time for me to attend Hugglets in February, I don't care which room I am in as long as I am there, the one thing I do know is I am next to the toilets, so this might be a good thing or maybe a bad thing either way I could use them to hide in.  Maybe not! don't want my memories of Hugglets to be how nice the wallpaper was in the toilet.

Hope everyone has a marvelous New Year and Best wishes for 2007.

Thank you Paula!  :hug:

The wedding has already been booked for 2 years! Stuart and I have been together over 7 years and we have 2 children so it's about time!! LOL.

Jacqui, I THINK you may been on the lower level as they are the only toilets I can think of at Hugglets. It's always nice and busy on the lower level!!
You should be near Christie Bears as they are always on the lower level.

Congratulations on achieving a table at Hugglets Jacqui!  I think you'll have a great time there and I'm certain your bears will do well if your wonderful avatar collection is anything to go by!!  bear_thumb

Congratulations Gemma!!! That's great news!

I am looking forward to going to see tha Phantom of the Opera next weekend with my husband!  :dance:

I am also looking forward, with some apprehension, to going back to school in order to re-begin my teaching career after a very extended (eight years  :crackup: ) maternity leave!!! I am excited, but feeling a little intimidated by the job search process!  I'm also a little concerned about having time to be creative while working full time outside the home as well as caring for the boys when I get home. Oh how I wish I were more organized with my time!

I'm looking forward to working on the house we just moved into.  We're going to work on decorating, possibly doing an addition to the house, and lots of other house projects.  I'm also looking forward to working on Sunny Bears, our teddy bear store. 

What are you doing for your wedding?  Please keep us updated.   bear_original

I am looking forward to 2007. I was spoilt for xmas and got a new overlocker, so can concentrate on making teddy and doll clothes. I am going to be entering overseas teddy competitions (australian ones). I am looking forward to going back to school part time and starting work full time. Plus I am looking forward to all the teddy bears I am going to make. But most of all I am looking forward to been able to join in more on Teddy Talk with all my wonderful friends  bear_wub  I will be able to join in the challenges and the swaps. Bring on 2007  :dance:

I am looking forward to our home extensions being complete, we are currently painting at the moment, that means somewhere to park all of my bearmaking supplies and a home for my things to live permanently. Which will be a relief.  bear_happy   I am hoping that will also make me a little more productive too.  bear_grin

We are also looking forward to my son playing in State and possibly Australian representative baseball team, we know he has made the cut for the top 44 in his age group, we will know more in the next few months where we will be off to, so that means lots of training and travelling to come for the new year, its such a great achievement for him.  We are very very  proud of him. :clap:

P.S.  Congratulations again Melanie on your fantastic news.  :hug:

A new home... by the end of January!!!
A new job... for me.. hubs has started his. I need to go back to work, get out of the house, have some structure to my days so that I might be more productive! Since staying home to make bears 'full time' my productivity has fallen! Go figure! Once we move I'm hitting the pavement with resume in hand!
Producing two bear shows... April & August... going to give it my all and hope for the best!
A new website... time for another overhaul!
New bears! I need to work on some new designs.
Finding a new church to belong to.

All that ought to keep me busy!

Oh, and I'm "nervously anxious" for the movie my bunny is in, MIMZY, to come out in March!

Mom moving up to her new little house and away from that awful board and careless where she is now.

finishing all my UFO's

doing more special gollies, I was thinking of a golly boy dressed like an eskimo-sounds like a challenge, also a hansel and gretel- I have some extra brown ultra suede that is screaming LEADERHOSEN.....cute, huh?

Hey MJ  that baby thing is so exciting! everyone else, I think she has us trumped, but Miss Daph is right behind her....

also looking forward to sunshine and wildflowers and swimming.  And mom told me last night she wants to pull weeds....

Well now I'm looking forward to moving into our new house at the end of the month! 

After a nightmare year of trying to sell my house and my third lot of buyers 'changing their minds' for whatever reason (none of them to do with the actual house!) my partner and I made the decision this weekend, to carry on with our purchase, move in to the new house with my kids later this month and worry about selling my house from there.  It's going to be a busy month! bear_tongue

Me? Well, I am looking forward to the salon closing after all these years of running it..we are not renewing the lease....some other poor unsuspecting fool can take it on (but not me!!!!  :crackup: ) so I will have a huge weight lifted off my shoulders!!! I will still be hairdressing...but I'll just be self-employed and no employees to worry about!!!!!

The spring can't come quickly enough for me now...if we can't have a decent winter here these days then let's just get it over with and have spring instead!!

I am looking forward to Hugglets in Feb but I'm not relishing having to come up with a table full of bears as I am so far behind these days!! I am viewing that with mixed emotions!!!

I am also looking forward to designing lots of the new Three O'clock thingummies that have been flitting through my head for months ...some with more flitter than others...but all deserve to burst forth at some stage.

Oh good golly!  There are so many wonderful things to look forward to this new year.  I could make a list a mile long!  Instead I'll focus on just today.  I'm finally feeling well enough to go upstairs and work in my studio!!  Hooray!!

Warmest bear hugs,  :hug:

Looking forward to.....
~Being an aunt in late March! First lil' peanut for my family. 
~My first bear show is this year..looking forward to that very much!  Have been planning and designing.
~Taking a much needed vacation with hubby...we haven't had one in many years due to various health issues and whatnot. Nothing adventurous, just pure relaxation....and maybe some shopping..yes shopping bear_grin
~Designing and planting a special butterfly garden in my backyard.  I'm not good with plants (houseplants beware).....but I've been good with my veggie gardens so I thought I'd branch out a little bit.  My dog always loved the one corner of the yard, so it's going to be a little remembrance garden for her too bear_wub

Aleta, I didn't realise you were unwell ... so glad you're back where you belong in your studio again!  bear_flower

Jenny, does this mean you'll have time for more lovely bears?  I know what you mean about the pressures of providing for Hugglets ... head down and let's get started girl!!  bear_happy

Chrissi, a butterfly garden sounds wonderful!  bear_thumb
