I’ve gotten a little sidetracked, but it’s all good. I was a bit surprised by the mailman today when he delivered a package filled with goodies. An order I placed for some supplies arrived so quickly I wasn’t prepared, but then the box beckoned me to take a peek before I had even gotten started on the day’s work. Before I knew it I was off and running in a different direction. It’s okay because it falls right in line with my plan – the plan I have stored in my head somewhere up there.

I’ve decided on the color palette I want to work with and that in itself had me wracking my brain for half a day. Me thinks I think way too much. The colors I have chosen are silver, soft pastel pink, cream, a little brown and some sugary glitter to round it out. Here’s a collage of my choices but this image doesn’t do it justice at all. The silver is shinier, the pink is warmer, the brown is just a little off and the glitter is much prettier. Now you've got a somewhat murky idea of the colors.

Actually, I have used similar colors before and I was really happy with the results. I used them on a 12" clown bear that made a little while back. Maybe this photo will give you an idea of the colors when they are incorporated into a single piece.

If all goes according to plan (seldom happens - but one has to have hope), I will be able to share with you what I have created. My goal is to have it ready to share by the 25th of February. It seems appropriate to pick the 25th since this is my 25th year making bears and I’d like to do it up right. Maybe this year will be one I can look back on and say it was a very good (silver anniversary) year. I hope you will come back to visit my blog on that day and see what’s up.
