Life

Movie crew on New Avenue, 1989*


In the sage words of my cousin Loren, aka the Groovy Movie Man:

LIFE
is a cereal.

And indeed it is:

I would like to suggest that, more often than not, this is really the case:

LIFE
is a serial.

In my 44 years, I have found that life is truly a series that happens in multiple parts and sometimes has reruns of the episodes you'd much rather forget.

Though I love creating my bears, life often interrupts and doesn't allow me to have any time for creativity. I designed my first teddy bear pattern and created New Avenue Crew in August 1996, 16 years ago, but I have had to take many periods of hibernation from bear making, both long and short, because of life's reruns. I recently noticed that the last post here on this blog was posted five months ago!

I don't know whether life will be settling down anytime soon, but with the cooler fall weather, I am feeling the need to pick up the fur and fluff and get busy creating a little someone. And I'd like to share more with you, like the sweet hairless bear I finished back in the spring. I'm thrilled to say that he's been included in a publication...but I'll save that news for another blog post.

Happy autumn to you, dear readers! I hope you can pause to enjoy the colorful leaves, cooler air, pumpkin spice yummies, and a little Crew in your life every so often.

  3. Looks good, you have new crew members added in your team. I think fresh and energetic force will refresh your ideas in bear making.
    " I think therefore I am" sometimes daily stuff interfere our progress on moving towards the goal, but you still have dreams and you know what want to do, one day you would be there.
