March In The Bummlies ~ Bear Bummlies in Action!


Happy Monday everyone!

I have some FUN news & photos to share with you today!

I am having so much FUN making...


~ My new line of Stuffing Free Dog Toys ~ 

They have been traveling all over the world and reporting back their adventures for all of us to enjoy!

Meet Bear Bummlie Maple!




She has safely landed in OR to live with our friend Tweedles!





Tweedles loves cuddling and playing with her new Bummlie ~ Maple ~ outside in her magical backyard and inside in her warm and loving home!


Meet Bear Bummlie Oliver!


Teddy LOVES him!

He is having so much FUN teaching him new tricks and working out with him!


Here he is doing crunches!


...and learning how to do head stands!


and then the cool down part of their workout...

He is a perfect head rest for Teddy!



ZZZzzzzzzzz

and now after a great workout it is Nap Time for both Teddy & Oliver!

Each Bear Bummlie sends the message of LOVE both from his front chest and his back "bum"! :)

Handmade of soft fleece, a solid piece of terry cloth stuffing, thread and a lot of LOVE... 

Each Bear Bummlie is unique & the perfect buddy for both dogs and kids!

They are machine washable and if opened by your 4 footed kid, they will not leave stuffing everywhere since they are safely stuffed with a terry cloth towel section that is one solid, safe piece that makes your Bear Bummlie even more huggable!

They are approximately 10" high from tip of ears to toes and 8 " across from paw to paw.

I happily cut, sew, hand embroider and stuff each doll.


They are flying out of the shop but more are moving in for you to enjoy too!

The Bummlie Family is growing and would love to become a member of yours today!

They multiply like magic with LOVE and cannot wait to meet you!

Visit my Etsy Shop anytime to choose your very own Bummlie today!

Friday Funnies ~ Whittling Away the Day



Happy Friday Everyone!

It is me...
R-Chee

What a beautiful sunny day we are having in my backyard!

I am making a toothpick by whittling this piece of wood I found today while my mom works on some new drawings for us to enjoy. :)





* I wonder how many chomps it takes to get to the end of this stick? *

I guess I had better learn how to count to find out the answer!

I the meantime, I think I will just keep on chomping!

This is FUN!

What FUN things are you up to today?

Please leave me a note and let me know!

I cannot wait to hear all about it!

The Brave Heart ~ Our "Here HO" on a Snowy Day!


Happy Monday everyone!

Look who popped in to say "Hello" to all of us on our snowy weekend!

Meet Leo the Lion
~ our Hero ~ "Here HO"! :)

While a foot of snow falls outside and you are cooped up inside... 

What can you do for FUN?

Just pull out an advertising postcard out of the junk mail recycle pile, some gesso, crayola watercolor paints and some crayons!

Then create a background to play on by...

First applying a coat of gesso to your postcard for texture, 
then a light watercolor wash comes next to make blobs to find shapes to trace that look like a something to you,
and then color it in with crayons, markers or your favorite medium of choice!

You cannot do it wrong!

Remember... we are playing and having FUN!



When making mine, I left some of the postcard color and letters peek through to add to the design to play with and found letters to trace that said "HERO" to me in the postcard's original message of "Here's How". :)

To finish the message I heard him say, I pulled out some magazines and cut out letters and heart shapes to glue on "Brave Heart" as a collage.

Voila!

A snowy day becomes an unplanned playday!

What a good reminder that even when your plans are changed for you ... you can always choose to have FUN!

Friday Funnies ~ R-Chee the Snow Plow!


Hi Everyone!
Happy Friday!

Guess what happened last night?

It snowed!

...and snowed and snowed until my backyard was blanketed it the stuff!



My job today is to plow paths in the snow so I can get around to all of my favorite places!


Momma fed me my Wheaties, Cheerios and my spinach to give me extra energy and gas (tee hee) to work with!

My engines are fired up!


The first thing I need to do is make snow piles to clear the way and then I think my friend the sun will help to melt it some more this afternoon.


Boy!

This late Winter, early Spring snow season makes some heavy snow around here!

Where are the light fluffy flakes that flew earlier in the season?


I am getting tired and well... stuck in this cement!



I cannot feel my feet!


Momma...

Please come pick me up to air lift me out of this mess I got myself into!


I'm pooped and ready for a snack and a nap!

:)

I think we are supposed to get at least 6" more tomorrow!

I think I will let dad clear the next path for me to go out into!

What are you up to this weekend?

Please leave me a note and let me know!

I cannot wait to hear all about it!
