Introducing Tim, My Alaskan Spirit Bear

TimProcess (72) I finished him a couple of days ago and he is almost ready to go!  Although it is going to be hard to let him go.

I know “spirit bears” are typically white, but this is a brown one, just because he is. I decided (actually, it was decided for me) that he would be a spirit bear because creating him has helped me through a very challenging week. He even went with me to the OR and I stuffed him while waiting for my husband to come out of surgery.

I named him Tim after the ER doctor who took such good care of my husband.

And during his process, I photographed every step of his creation so I can soon share with you exactly what it takes to make a bear. That will take place on a post to come sometime in the future.

The sun is shining again today and we are all on the road to recovery in our house. We are grateful and blessed, for sure.

Thank you for joining in the magic!
