Another good reason to join ArtFire

Hi all,

I hope you all had a lovely Christmas :o)

I would also like to wish you all a very happy new year.......I hope you have a very happy and healthy 2009!!!

I just thought I'd mention another good reason to join ArtFire. By taking out a membership you will be 'doing your bit' to help the environment.



One of my MANY new year's resolutions this year is to become more 'green'.......and this is one more way for me to do this :o)

There's only around 3,000 $7 (roughly around £4) places left so now would be a good time to join in if you're thinking about it. I believe the price is going to rise to around $20-$25 once all the $7 slots are taken!!

Why not pop along and see for yourself by visiting the site, just click on the link below :o)






Well.........2009!!! I've got quite a bit to look forward to this year! It's my last year of studying at uni and I have to admit, as much as I enjoy being a student (definitely should have done this YEARS ago!!), it will be nice to have more time to myself again. I find it quite difficult at the moment fitting everything into my life.......between being a single parent (and all that entails), studying, working part time and making bears! There's just not enough hours in the day.

I've also got 2 bear shows this year which I'm REALLY excited about :o) Apart from getting the chance to meet other fantastic bear artists (many of who's work I've admired for quite some time), it'll be so nice to meet some of my collectors :o) Although, I dare say nearer the time I'll be really nervous as these will be my first 'proper' bear shows!

I'll also be hitting the big 40 this year!!!! WOW, where does the time go.....scary!!!

Speak to you all again soon :o)

Hugs
Janice

Hi Janice, Thanks for your lovely comment on my blog. You make gorgeous bears! I'm thinking that maybe you could give me some tips on time management! How do you fit it all in , I'm amazed :-)
Good luck with your final year at uni.
