Back from the Dallas Show!

Hello friends!!!  By now you have probably deserted this pathetic attempt at a blog....oh me, oh my.  There has been a lot going on....we just returned from Dallas Gift Market.  It was oh so warm down there.  Always hot.  Even over night, in my opinion.  Lordie!  But we ducked from one air conditioned space to another, and survived just fine!  Here are some pics of our booth.  I forgot to take my camera with me....aaaarrrrgh!!!  So these are the only two pics we took the whole show, with Lovin' Man's I-Phone.  Oh well.  We had a really great visit.....saw old friends, made new ones.....it was all good. 

Do you love the bunting hanging in my booth as much as I do?  My mama made it just for this show...and it stopped everyone in their tracks!  I was asked several times if I was selling it.  Well, now I've got something new to work on!!!  Dreaming Bear bunting!!!  Ha! 

Sending out a GIANT thank you to Mike and Susie, our gracious hosts who gave us a peaceful place to rest at the end of those long show days....and they always had the wine flowing....bless 'em.  And thanks to Angie, Dawny, Emily and Emma who kept the train on the tracks back home while we were gone.  Don't know what we would do without them!!!  More news soon...but for now, going to head out to the balloon glow....it's a gorgeous night for it!

Bubble Trouble is in the Etsy shop!

Hello friends!  It has been a whirlwind of activity here in Dreaming Bear land.  Lots of projects being juggled in the air all at once!  Still working hard at home, freshening up the patio with paint and accessories...and working really hard in the studio, creating samples for the upcoming Dallas Gift Market.  We just had a mini photo shoot, starring our adorable Emily and some of the popular Dreaming Bear products.  Too cute...will show you some of the pics soon.

  For now, though, I wanted to let you know that the Bubble Trouble fabric line is now available in our Etsy shop!  So those of you who can't find it locally, or can't make it into our store, you can get your hands on some now!  Woo hoo!

 Click HERE for the Etsy shop.  If you need larger amounts, just email me, and we'll see if we can make it happen.  Wishing you a sunshiney day!

We are A-List Winners! Yay!

Hiya!  How's it going?  I've been a bad little blogger...I'm not sure why....maybe it's the official transition into summertime.  So glad summer is here!  The kids were done with school last Thursday...and we are beginning our first week of sleeping in, playing around, and working on our tans.  Life is good.

 Lovin' Man has been busy with his "honey do" lists that just keep growing and growing.  We recently had our house repainted...which has led to other things naturally....new flower pots out front and more. Currently, the back patio is getting a makeover, and we are working our way through the backyard.  I've been clearing away overgrowth, planting new things, and have had fun putting little accessories here and there.  Totally loving garden accessories!    Will show you some pics very soon....but first I would like to say THANK YOU for making us the number one gift shop on KCRG's A-List!!! 

We are so very honored and happy!!!  Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!  We will continue to work hard to make you smile.  Thanks for making us smile!!!
