First creation....

How excited are you about a new year?
I'm very excited I have to say. 
You get a fresh start and a whole lot of "first's, right?
I don't make New Year resolutions, but rethink what worked for me last year and what could use some change and I go from there.
So this year I want to get better organized with my time as I have a lot more on my plate
and it felt like I was chasing my own tail for most of the time .
Keeping track of everything was a problem too. 
I believe I have a bit of ADD as well and get overwhelmed when I have too much in my head and then 
everything comes to a halt because I don't know what to do first.
More about that in a later post, when my new customized planner arrives.  :)
For now it's easy to keep track and here you see one of my first customs of 2014.

The good thing about the start of the year for me is that the busy time at my day job is over and things calm down and I have any or just a few custom orders lined up.
This here is one of them.
An owl for a soon to be born grandchild.
Yesterday was spend with cutting out fabrics, sewing the parts together...

...stuffing them with soft, fluffy wool.....

....and hand stitching the parts in place and embroidering the face.

This is the finished owl.
I love the leaf fabric. It's so versatile !
There will be a change in the owls this year. I feel they need to be a bit different and 
I have already some good ideas.
More about this at a later point as well, so come back and see what 2014 will bring 
for PolarBearCreations.
I'm excited !
