I started the year out interestingly...somehow...through every fault of my own...literally...on January 1st...deleting every single page of the Mostly Bears website. (With no easy backup system in place, I might add. Hem...happy new year to me!)
After about a week of sputzing around (yes, it's a made up word meaning puttering with a few choice phrases mixed in), I managed to restore about half the pages. And as I was preparing myself for the possibility that I was going to have to recreate the rest, I got a phone call from the tekkies at the server company saying they had completed a restoration of the entire site for me! Happy New Year to me again!
With the website back in business, now I can get back to blogging.
Recently, I got my hands on a new display case and have been busy organizing all the miniatures I have here at the store into this:
#2...a 12" pink ribbon plush Life bear from Gund.
#3...a little bear, named "Little Bear", from artist Sharon Barron. He's more beige and less pink than the photos indicates.
#4...last but not least. But smallest...a Bad Hair Day bear from Deb Canham. This lovely is appropriately named Tricky and is part of the 2004 collection.
#5...Oops, and here's one last bonus giveaway. A set of the current issues of Teddy Bear Review and Teddy Bear & Friends. If you'd like to enter the drawing, (we'll draw names sometime before Valentine's day), just leave a comment below or visit the Mostly Bears website...which is working just dandy nowadays, I might add...here. Just click on "join mailing list" to get yourself entered.Best of luck to everyone!
