I have received calls about repairing a bear or completing one. Others have found, as I did, that creating bears is not as easy as it may appear. Beyond bears, for me there is memory bears. Beyond creating a bear is preserving a memory. Beyond a craft is a ministry.
I never thought I would be doing any of this; creating memory bears and publishing on a blog. Contrary to my thoughts, here I am, doing both…and loving it.
A bear was brought to me locally for completion. Another bear came to the shop from the west coast. When I pick up the phone, I never know what I will find at the other end. My bear ministry has provided the answers…so far.
Another week has gone by…another weekend is here. Enjoy. See you Monday.
