About Me

My photo
I am a teddy bear artist by profession. I also play rhythm guitar with a local bluegrass band on weekends that I am not off to teddy bear shows. I have a very funny papillon named PJ. He is 10 years old and he keeps me mobile by making me take him walking every day. I love antiquing and use many of my finds for my teddy bears. I am just starting to do mixed media artwork and collage. You can find some of my things my website:www.marthasbears.com

smartphone - smarter than me!

Well, I got a smart phone - after swearing that I would never get such a thing.  It is smart alright, it outsmarts me every day!  Just when I think that I figured out how to access mail, I find something I missed.  I think that I terminated a call but, oh, wait ....   maybe not.  It takes pictures when I least expect it.  sigh........
But it does allow me to accept credit cards at the shows, so it should be a good thing.
I got an HTC Merge -- I do love the weather app.   But who needs all the mystery apps?  Maybe I am just too old to begin learning new things.

February's Winner

Sarah Medina won last month's bog giveaway.  She won my hand crafted heart and nest necklace (you can see it in the Feb archive.
Congratulations Sarah!
