Being the bored, unemployed person that I am, I had a brilliant idea. Actually, I had the idea a couple of years ago, but just started doing it. Besides the loose screw, I'm slow too.
People seemed to like the bears wearing flannel pajamas I have been making, so I decided to make them and try to sell them. Their faces are cuter than Smirky bear who's pictures is in a previous post. I haven't invested much into them so far because I have a lot of fabric in my craft stash, and I have even sold a few. It's a little extra money and something to do. I don't work on them everyday, but days I do work on them I spend a lot of time making them.
I was going to make them and donate them to the children's hospital, but from everything I have read, hospitals only want new, in the original packaging. I'm still going to check into it some more. Also, there are always craft fairs around, so I figure if I work on them all year, I should have a half way decent amount made to sell at the end of the year for the holidays. There is always Craiglist, too. I have been told I need my own website, but I haven't decided on that yet. I don't want to be committed to making tons of them and get bear burn out. See, I must have a screw loose.
Luckily, we haven't had all the snow like the East has had. We have had snow, then rain and now mud season has come really early. We are do for more snow and rain tonight and tomorrow. Perfect weather for staying in and working on bears.
