Christmas in July is almost here!

The North Country Teddy Bears Christmas in July online conference and show begins this week! You can sign up for online workshops now. I'm taking Judi Paul's Felted Paws class and I am enjoying it very much. My bear now has toes!

In addition to the workshops offered, there will be games, prizes, swaps, and much more. You will also be able to chat with world-famous teddy bear artist, Ted Menten, on Friday evening in the Hospitality Chat Room. Participating artists will be available throughout the sale to answer any questions you may have.

Click the banner on the right side of my blog and you'll find the complete schedule for the four-day event beginning July 24 and running through July 27.

Please remember that all times listed are Eastern Standard Times.

Click on the Scuba Diving Santa to see a Sneak Preview of the show.
Hope to see everyone there.

The Waggle Arena

My son, Joseph, had recently started blogging. The Waggle Arena is a much different blog than mine, however, where he will:

"...put my own spin on current events and political developments. currently my interests include but are not limited to public policy, social stratification, and culture.
so this page will serve as a one-stop joe headquarters for all things waggle. it will be my combination news update/ book review/ social commentary/ random musing/ art appreciation/academic debate/et cetera page. "

He tells me that he's doing this to keep his mind active since he's living at home right now. That means his dad and I are not intellectually stimulating enough.

Christmas In July

We're getting closer to our summer online show. What was supposed to be the Spring Fling in June is now Christmas in July. Unfortunately, the delay was unavoidable due to a serious fire in the data center where more than 9,000 servers were damaged.

Just click on the banner to the right and it will take you to all the information about the show now scheduled for July 24 - 27. Previews of the artist booths will be available about a week before the show.

Hope to see you there.
