How my week is starting off

Hello dear friends,

I hope you have all enjoyed the weekend. 
Mine went a little to quickly for my liking and now it is Monday again.

Tomorrow I am going to the Dentist which I am not looking forward to ... I need to have a crown
please wish me luck!

I just had to share a little sneak peek of what I am making before signing off.
Francesca bear is waiting to be finished ~ I am making her for a blog friend who has to commissioned me to make her a bespoke bear for her daughter.
 Back to work now.
Do what you love. Love what you do.
Enjoy your week


  1. Hi Carolyn, I'm sure Francesca will be a cutie and will make a little girl very happy.
    I wish you all the best for your dentist visit and hope all goes well.

  2. Carolyn, Good luck with the dentist. Everything will go find. My mouth is full of crowns and yours will last a long, long time.
    Have a great week. Ginger

  3. Hi Carolyn, at least you can think of how beautiful Francesca will turn out while you're at the dentist. Hope it all goes successfully. Hope the rest of your week is filled with happy times, hugs Robyn

  4. I'd love to see the bear once it's finished. Good luck at the dentist. Think happy thoughts - it may help while sitting in the chair.

  5. Hi Carolyn, I do hope your trip to the dentist was not too painful.
    I'm looking forward to see little Francesca arrive.

  6. I don't like going to the dentist either. I have to be sedated to go.

    I can't wait to see how your wee bear turns out!


  7. Ohhh, can't wait to see Francesca!!!

    Good luck, my friend. I've had several crowns and now a couple of root canals, and even though I know what to expect and have had no problems, it's still nerve-racking.

    I have to go in for my mamogram this morning . . . .

    I hope you have a fabulous week!!

    Much love,

  8. I hope your dentist is as gentle as ours, you'll be fine.

  9. My darling friend,

    I have tears in my eyes at this moment. You have reminded me to do what I LOVE. Confusion sets in when I start thinking about what I SHOULD BE PRODUCING to make sales.....I need to make what I love.

    OH YOU TOO are taking off wallpaper? I am trying to use a steamer (which is quite effective!) but we are having a heat wave!!!!! I had to take a break.

    YOUR BEAR IS GOING TO BE stunning. I am so glad to hear that you are making magic for a dear blogger pal. Are blogger friends just special?

  24. Hi Carolyn, popping over here to see how´s you doing. I love that inspiration you left us, "do what you love". That´s exactly what I´m doing right now. :)

  25. Carolyn, I hope all goes well for your crown. I know just how you feel as I have had a few myself. In fact I have a dental appt. this week for cleaning etc. Not a fun visit, but necessary every 6 months.
    Love the quote and so true.
    Thank you for sharing. Have a great week ahead.
    Lot of Love, Celestina Marie
