Snow Day!!!

Snow Day in New England!!
I think most of New England is having a snow day today! Here in NH we're forecasted for up to 20" of snow! Though many are complaining I'm thrilled at the idea of having an excuse to cancel appointments and stay at home! I have so much to do.... putting away the remainder of the Christmas decorations, getting out the Valentine's Day ones.... laundry and ironing... plowing through the mound of papers on my desk... looking through the new spring catalogs that have come in the mail.... and OH YEAH, bear making!! How could I forget that one! ;) I now have two almost finished (I know, I know, why not just finish one, Daph!!??) And I cut out two elephants last night. I'm excited about those!

Plans for the Maine Teddy Bear & Fiber Arts Show and the Chicagoland Teddy Bear Show are well under way and I'm so pleased at the number of talented artists who are sending their applications in!! I've just posted a list of artists who will be participating in the Chicagoland show in October. More will be added as the app. deadline isn't 'til the end of March. If you are a bear collector I think there will be a lot of artists on there you know! If you are an artist and your name isn't there why not consider joining us??
Time to get started on my Snow Day!!

Lucky you, Daphne! It looks beautiful up there! We're having snow... for now anyhow. It's supposed to change to rain this afternoon (but of course, that's what it always does down here on the Cape)! lol Have a lovely day!

Louise - Can't say as I miss the winter weather down there a whole lot!! I miss fall though... tourists gone but still beautiful at the beach! Anyway, we're supposed to get sleet and ice on top of our 20" of snow... ought to be interesting!!

Snap! We're all snowy in the UK today too! It's our heaviest snow fall across the country in about twenty years.
