Waiting to be Adopted

These three little cuties have just been added to my Etsy store where they'll wait patiently to be adopted. In the meantime they'll reside with me and enjoy the company of the variety of bears in my hug. The bears and me will be sad to see them go, as  they make great companions for larger bears.

Check out these new items in my Etsy Store!

Hi everyone, I've just added some new items to my Etsy store. Thought I'd better put more stock in after it being sold out last week!!
I've so enjoyed using the skills I learned while attending K.C. Willis Online Collage Camp . It's so much fun creating this fabric collage art.

I always like making things that are useful. I've purchased these 3 cotton bags and added the beautiful fabric collages to them. The small drawstring has an image from raggedyblessings on it. 

The 2 tote bags have images from my own original artworks of teddy paintings,making them truly unique and one of a kind. I also added fabric lining to the bags and pockets with doileys attached. 
I hope you like them as much as I enjoyed making them.  

Happy week-end to all!! Robyn.

So to the gym I go!!

Challenges are what make life interesting; overcoming them is what makes life meaningful.        -Joshua J. Marine 

Well it's with apprehension and lack of enthusiasm I'm beginning a fitness program at the gym. Docs.' recommendation, due to my thinning bone density. 

Never having really been an exercise person, always enjoyed sitting with my painting or creative projects, I'm finding it all a bit overwhelming, and hard to picture myself "working out" at the gym. But underneath all this I really feel I must give it my best shot and try to build up my strength, so as hopefully to preserve myself for a better quality of life as I get older. 
So I'll just have to fit in my crafting around all this. Have half finished projects all over the house at present, so hoping to get to them soon when I get some sort of routine established.
The joys of getting older!!! Am sooo happy though, have just sold all items in my Etsy store!!! That made my week!! So looking forward to adding more items soon!!
Wishing you all a good week, filled with health, vitality and happiness!!! Hugs Robyn.
