Busy Bees ... Er ... BEARS!

Here we are back again. Things have been very hectic at the ArtSmart Craft Cottage studio lately and it's taken a little while for us to catch our breath, but now that we're all caught up, we thought we'd pop in to update you all on what's been going on here.

A week or so ago (it's very hard for little bears to keep track of the date, you know!) Libby was part of the Girls Day Out weekend and since she was helping to organise it, the studio was in an uproar for the few days before! There were patterns to pack, kits to kit up, brushes to count ... including the two that Corey tried to turn into stilts so he could reach the biscuit jar on the kitchen bench!! ... Boy, was Libby in a flap! But being helpful little bears (well ONE of us is!!) we jumped in to help and off she went to her weekend "FUN"shop. What she didn't realise was that we had hidden in one of her boxes because we decided WE would like to join in the fun! This is what the room looked like when we arrived.

Ooh! Balloons!! Libby set up lots of her quilts to the side there and there were all sorts of goodies in those bags ... including Corey in one of them for a while, after he fell in while he was trying to take a peek. BOYS!! We got him back out of the bag just in time for all the ladies to come flooding in.
Wow! Look at all those ladies! There was lots of chatting, lots of laughing and a little bit of work done ... that's why Corey and I call them "FUN"shops instead of "WORK"shops!
Here's Libby helping some ladies to paint more cute bears like us. We thought she'd spotted us with the camera, but she was smiling at someone beside us ... PHEW! That was close!
Here she is with Jo ... don't those aprons look cute? I wonder if they come in bear sizes? Oh ... Corey wants a blue one with a truck so it's not as girly ... BOYS!!
Here's Marilyn from the Patchwork Tea House. Look at all those goodies! I bet lots of ladies had fun shopping here during the weekend!
I bet Jen from Embellish A Little sold lots of pretty buttons too. Oops! Has Jen spotted us? Duck, Corey!!
This is the project that Libby taught over the weekend ... oh look! It's a stitchery picture of our house ... there's a bear in there ... or two! Hee! Hee! ( A little Playschool joke there!)
As well as the pretty projects the ladies painted and stitched away on during the two days, there were lots of fun competitions, giveaways, lucky draws and YUMMY food to make little teddy tummies happy! Libby finally sprang us when Corey fell into the cream on the yummy scones. It took AGES to get the cream out of his fur! Then Libby made us sit in a quiet corner out of the way ... but we still had heaps of fun! Thanks to all the lovely ladies who helped make the day so special ... we can't wait to catch up with you all again!
As you can imagine, it's taken us a little while to unpack everything and tidy the studio after the "FUN"shop, so we haven't got much else to show you, but I promise we'll be back soon to show you a sneaky-peek of Libby's new design. Let's just say ... it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas! Hee! Hee!
Oops! An email just arrived, so we'd better be good teddy bears and answer it. We hope you'll come back and visit us again soon. Have fun!
