I'd hoped to have everything ready before Easter, but these days I have to be kind to myself and understand not everything will be just the way I'd wanted... ahhh, one of the many life lessons taught by my children. Time is short in the studio these days, but I'm always happy to carve out a little work time to slow down and make a few bears like these. Stuffing with excelsior and sewing their small pieces take time. These activities allow me space to sit and think. It's quiet in the studio when I work like this- and it's a very welcome change up. I wouldn't give up the work I'm doing with the POLKA DOT CLUB for anything- I love this new project, but there are times when it's nice to be slow and let the work come into fruition without knowing just what I'll be making today... let the creativity flow.
