DE STRESSED!













My previous post looked far more frightening than it was supposed to be! I'm so sorry if I alarmed some of my blog friends. Last week I had minor surgery to my mouth, my husband was not well (nothing serious) and my workload in the office, overwhelming. But ... I did some crafting and bearmaking in the evenings and the stress disappeared. What do people do with their stress if they don't create??








I completed Dinky, the scruffy, melancholy little bear. Dinky was born a year ago but I'd never sewn his ears (poor little mite!). Now he has ears and a bell and bow around his neck and is quite happy living with all the other bears and friends.








A few years ago scrapbooking was my passion but then the bears came along and I lost interest in the scrapbooking and I also didn't have time for it. It seemed a pity that all the beautiful papers and goodies were not being used anymore so I tried my hand in decorating chipboard boxes. Here is the result ..... I still need a lot of practice.

Dinky is a very sweet bear. And I agree, creativity is a de-stresser, for sure. Hope you and your hubby return to good health soon. I love the way you have redone your blog. Love and hugs, Vicki
