Getting Organised – a new obsession..

I like lists. I like notebooks. I like the security of writing things down. (Especially after a major computer problem which meant a complete reset and rebuild of my PC!) Trouble is, I write things down on anything. I have about 4 or 5 notebooks on the go, as I can...

Moving Forward…

Hello! Long time to see….I know, it’s my fault. Those of you who follow me on social media will know that I slowed things down over the summer. I didn’t disappear, I just wasn’t drawing as much. I made a decision to stop doing craft fairs, and...

Balloons, Bunting and Books

A couple of weeks ago myself, Ted and my long suffering husband (Mr E) went on a day  trip to a little place a couple of hours drive away, called Hay on Wye. It’s a small Welsh village/town – which is, in many respects like many other Welsh villages… but...

Dreams versus Reality

Hello. It’s been a while (again). I realise my posts here can be quite eratic – To be honest I have struggled with what to say (which will shock some of you I know!), but, for various reasons, I feel I have found my voice again, so am giving it another go....

Why I Draw…

Last time, I told you about my hibernation habits (otherwise known as doing too much for too long, till the body says stop.)   Well, one way I stop is to draw. Yes, I know – that is also “work”. I am paid (by my extremely lovely customers) to draw. But it...

Burnt Soup

So – every now and again, my body throws a wobbly. It decides I have done too much and that it doesn’t want to do anything more. This week was one of those times. I started the week a bit tired, and it just got worse. Thoughts got muddled, mistakes were made....

Birthdays in December

Hello Everyone, how are you? Sorry I missed last week – things have been rather busy here. Lot’s going on – what with a bathroom refit and Jac trying to prepare for Christmas. It’s been noisy and dusty – and on some days very cold –...

A Day Trip

Hello All I’m back again! Sorry I missed you all last week, but every bear needs a little time off. And both Jac and I had a day off together last week, so we hopped on a train to Swansea. Jac said we were going to an Art Gallery and Museum – the Glynn...

Whitterings of an Illustrator…

Theodore.E.Bear is having a rest tonight, so it’s back to me to write this weeks blog – but too be honest I am out of practice! I never know what to write about. I mean – do I tell you about the week I have had, or maybe about the glorious weather we...

Taking it slow..

Hello again everyone – have you had a good week? It’s been very quiet here this week, as Jac was a bit poorly with a bad cold and couldn’t spend as much time as normal at the drawing board. Don’t worry though, I looked after her wih plenty of...
