The Most Dapper Mouse

I promised my good friend and the big boss that I would be sharing photos of him and his friends here on bearbits. And besides, a visit to Disney World just isn’t the same without a visit with Mickey and friends. So without further ado, I would like to share these photos with three of my favorite characters.

First up is this excellent picture of me and Mickey. He is so photogenic! I think I just might need to frame it and hang it on the wall where I can see it every day. And for all his fame and longevity, Mickey is the nicest mouse you’ll ever meet.

After visiting with Mickey, I had a chance to hang out with Goofy for a few minutes. Can you believe it? Just me and Goofy! I would love to get myself a hat like his. If I could find one in my size, maybe next time we could take a photo together in our green hats.


Finally, I was a bit tongue-tied when I met Minnie. She is so sweet and so wonderful that I didn’t quite know what to say. Fortunately, she’s used to meeting fans that fumble around for something intelligent to say.


love & hugs,

A Halloween Party


Hi ho. Sebastian here. I’ve got more photos and this time they are from Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party.

It was so much fun that I think I am going to have to go back again. Maybe not this year though. I think I’ve got plenty to do with all the other holidays coming up.

Do you recognize these two?  I was so incredibly excited to meet them for the first time.  This is Jack and Sally from Nightmare Before Christmas!  They were fantastic and so very friendly!

Can you see me in this close-up?

Of all the photos we took of the castle show, this particular one is my favorite because it captures the balloons from the movie “Up”.  I love the way they transform the castle and tell a story with pictures.

We also saw the Halloween Parade.   The song was really catchy.  It’s still echoing in my head right now.

The parade floats were amazing.  This one is Captain Hook’s ship with Smee on the front and Captain Hook on the back.

There were dancing zombies too.

Villains were all around.  The pirate float not only had Jack Sparrow, it had Barbossa!

The bears from the Country Bear Jamboree danced right by me.  One of these days I am going to meet them all in person.

The ghosts from the Haunted Mansion materialized for the procession.  Spooky!

Now these seven gentlemen weren’t scary at all – just very Happy and Grumpy and Sleepy and Bashful and Sneezy and Dopey and, last but not least, Doc!


Here I am with Dopey.

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my Halloween party pics!

More Friends

Hi ho. It’s me again, Sebastian. A few days ago I had lunch at a place that almost made me feel like I was in Hundred-Acre Wood. I’ll bet you are wondering how that could be. It’s because all my favorite friends from Hundred-Acre Wood were there!

First I met my friend Eeyore. He’s such a softie. I loved, loved, loved meeting Eeyore. He’s so huggable and very nice too.

After Eeyore traveled on, along came Pooh. While we are both bears, Pooh is iconic. Even so, he’s just the same as he always has been: my favorite bear – along with Duffy and a few others!

Trailing after Pooh was his little pink friend, Piglet. Piglet is every bit as adorable in real life as he is in the storybook.

Lastly, we met Tigger. There’s no one like him. He’s one-of-a-kind and so happy and bouncy that we all had to get in a photo together. It was fun being hugged by a Tigger!

I was so excited I almost forgot to eat my lunch!

love & hugs,

A Great Couple of Scarers

Hi ho my favorite people! Sebastian here and I’m back from another Disney adventure. You-know-who is sorting through tons of photos mumbling things like “what’s with the crazy hair?” and “your eyes are closed” and “why did we take this picture?” So it looks like it is going to be up to me to show you some of my favorite Disney moments and maybe later, she’ll show you some of hers.

Today I am sharing the time I met Sulley and Mike Wazowski from Monsters, Inc. at Hollywood Studios. I’m not sure if I have ever had so much fun. I think I wanna be a monster too! They were a blast. What a great couple of scarers!

Here we are meeting for the first time. I felt a little bit like a mouse with an elephant. I hope I didn’t scare them! I love these guys!

Here’s a photo of me and Sulley. Ain’t he sorta charming in a big and furry kind of way?

In this photo, Mike is getting a really close look at me. I have to say I wondered if I was going to be a midday snack but then I realized, he only has the one eye to check out everything so it all turned out okay.

And then there’s this one. We were all taking cues from our new friends on how to be scary but I think we need a lot more practice. Being scary and loveable at the same time is an art and we need a little more practice.

If you ever have a chance to meet these guys, don’t be scared! They are delightful and I promise they won’t eat you for lunch.

love & hugs,

Impressive Chocolate Plate

The plate is made entirely of sugar. The rest is chocolate.  Too pretty to eat! I don't want to be the one who takes the first bite but it sure is tempting!

Sittin’ and Strummin’

Hi ho! Sebastian here once again. Last year I attended the first IBMA (International Bluegrass Music Association) Wide Open festival. I’m a big fan of all kinds of music and when they have an international festival right here where I live, I like to be a part of it to show my support for my hometown of Raleigh, NC. This year our Sir Walter Raleigh icon got an even bigger decoration although I was a little bit disappointed that someone stole his banjo this time around. Go figure. Anyway, can you see me?

How about now? Yes, that’s me. I thought I would bring out my banjo for the occasion. You didn’t know I played the banjo, did you?

Now the interesting part about this particular stage is that it was created by artist Bland Hoke who works with reclaimed and recycled materials. And the materials for this particular artwork? Hundreds of banjo parts that failed quality control inspections. Is that cool or what?

Here I am sitting in one of the banjo hoops strumming on my own banjo. It was wonderful. The sound was exceptional.

It was a great weekend for bluegrass music fans from across the globe. Now I have to put my banjo away because I am off on another adventure soon and I need to rest my paws before I hit the road again. See you ‘round the bend!

love & hugs,

First Stage of Painting – Witch Hat 2014

I’ve started the first stage of painting on the witch’s hat that I began not long ago. These two arrows indicate a couple of important details. The upper arrow is pointing to a line which eventually will be key to an important feature in this project. The lower arrow points to a small eyelet which is related to the line. Eventually you will see how all this fits together. In the meantime,

back to the paint. First I added some texture.

Here is a view from further away.

Here’s where the first of the colors come in.

And a few more.

Remember the previous post where I showed how I added fabric to the paper mache base? This close-up photo gives you a chance to see how it looks similar to a canvas.

A little more fussing around with paint. Now it’s time to consider the other details I want to add.

Until next time,
