Hi, I'm Shel

April 23, 2017

This sly little imp was sold yesterday on Facebook. Thanks to everyone who visited the Bear Collectors Anonymous Facebook group to catch BEAN's appearance in their Great Worldwide Online Bear Show.

I'm so happy my first piece in a really long time was wanted. You might think I'm confident every piece will sell since I've been doing this so long, but you'd be wrong -- every listing sees me biting my nails with anxiety about how my work will be received. I don't lose sleep over it or anything. I don't cease to function. I don't need, like, therapeutic intervention over it. But I do feel worried, and I think maybe that's a natural part of being a creative person professionally, to worry about whether one's audience is still watching, and still willing to buy.

I had lots of fun interacting with fellow bear makers and all those sweet collectors again, especially in this sort of venue where things happen in real time. Thanks to fabulous bear artist and long-time friend Kim Russell for invi...

I love sewing, soaping,
nature, reading, people, birds, Disney, coffee, & fleece

Musings and messes and magic and fun... the happy scrapbook of a creative, grateful life.

Sometimes I link to resources that I use personally and thus feel comfortable recommending to others. I participate in the Amazon Associates program, so when you purchase using my links I may receive a small percentage of the sale (at no additional cost to you.) Thank you for helping support indie artisans!  I will only recommend what I know and believe in; never just to be compensated. So when I write that I use and love something, you can trust that I really do.
