Good-Bye, 2010...Hello, 2011!

Brrr... It's a cold one out there this last day of 2010! We had our first winter snowstorm yesterday and overnight, and though it's sunny out, it's only 7 degrees (and feels like -8). They even have the freeway closed because it's so icy. My husband and I are very glad we don't need to go anywhere. We and the kids are snug here at home. I've had my morning tea, and soon I'm preparing to go sew some bear parts!

Speaking of bears, I wanted to let you know that New Avenue Crew has been accepted into the next online Teddies Worldwide bear show coming up in March! Be sure to add it to your new calendar.

Though it's winter and Christmas has just passed, I have two springtime bears in the works and a third ready to be started. Pastel colors, new spring growth, and warm breezes are on my mind.

As 2010 ends and 2011 begins, I would like to say thank you to you all for being friends of the Crew. I have enjoyed getting to know many of you over the past year! I hope to present lots of new Crew members to you next year--I have many new ideas written down, drawn out, and dancing in my head. And most of all, I pray God blesses you throughout the coming year and that you thank Him as the giver of all good things.

Every good thing given and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shifting shadow (James 1:17).


  1. Hi Debora,

    Your Bible verse brought John 6:35 into my thoughts (that is my license tag).

    Blessings to you all. Stay warm (we are 40 degrees WARMER than we were 3 days ago - (strange weather).

    Can't wait to see the New Avenue Crew Kids.



  2. Happy New Year, Debora!
    May 2011 bring happiness, good fortune, and adventure to you and yours. Big Hugs, Laura♥

  3. Hope you all have a great new year Debora :o)

    So glad for your friendship!!

    can't wait to see your new move to pastel color design...
    happy new year, Debora.

  6. Good afternoon Deb..I'm sorry that I am just now visiting your blog in this new year :) I'm going to try and get back into blogging more often and being sure to visit my blog friends more often as well.

    LOVE the verse. Wishing you and your family a wonderful and joy filled new year. May you have much peace and happiness

    big hugs, Doreen
