Almost finished and back to blogging

I have had so much work lately, that I didn't have a lot of time for blogging.
I nearly finished a big book, for my illustration work. 160 pages thick and a lot of drawings to make,(I hope to finish it tomorrow, and then i want to have a little celebration this week-end.)
so there was really no time left for bears and blogging.

But in the evenings, while I watch TV, I have gone one making some bears and I will share some pictures today.
I will gradually post them on bearpile and etsy. But, also, AND THIS IS IMPORTANT! on the new pussman&co shop
This is important for you to, because I will be listing the bears on this blog, with 5% discount.
This is to encourage people to buy directly from me.
The check-out system is the same as on bear pile.

I have been working in the garden a lot, the last 2 week-ends, the weather was super! Everything has got a real sun boost and is growing spectacular.

Already some colour in the garden, spring is my favorit!

I also have made some changes in my little bear studio, and am pleased about it, it is difficult to stay organised, especially with so much things in such a small house,
I am lucky my husband is a messmaker to, so he wont pick on me, about this :)
I have arranged a small photostudio in the corner of our living room (on top of a chinise box, with lots of drawers. I treasured it, but never really used it.), and with the help of a strong hanging lamp and a piece of paper, it's much easier to take my bear pictures.
The Chinese box is really great to keep all my stuff organised, like buttons, ribbons, scissors, little charms, glue, cotterpins, little books etc....
And i wrapped all my ribbons on cards and they look great!!
I really enjoy my little bear sudio.

And then off course! My two companions day in day out! Milan and Vroefke, they never leave my side.
Vroefke(the cat) really likes helping out and Milan(dog) is a good critic.

Love that little bear with the skirt on the window sill. You do make such beautiful things. I'm sure your artwork will be much admired in the book.

Your new bears are so sweet Danielle. I also love the little dress on the bear.
I am very impressed with the illustrations you have done. They are beautiful.
And I also love the way you have arranged your work space. I love to see where others work.
