Hobbies Anyone?

Since so many are goofing off at RWA...fun!!! And I'm not...lol, I thought I'd post something not writing related.

Besides writing, what kind of hobbies do we have?

For me, I make award-winning teddy bears that have been featured in magazines including Texas Monthly, Texas Co-Op Monthly, The MacNeill Galley, Teddy Bear & Friends, Teddy Bear Review and numerous newspapers. The bears have sold all across the states, Canada, Russia, China, Switzerland, and as far away as Australia! http://terryspear.tripod.com/celticbears/

Like creating stories, each bear is unique, having its own personality. And when someone buys it, it's the bear's face that draws them in. :) these were 16th Century German dressed bears created for an author's new book release.

I make everything from Celtic Clan Bears, vampire bears and wizards to birth bears with names and birth dates embroidered on the paws. But one bear I've had some queries for lately--a werewolf bear--still hasn't come to fruition. LOL

Here's Patriotic Patrick, featured in Teddy Bear Review, and one found a home in Russia!



Do you have a special hobby?

  1. Love your bears! They are pure personality.

    A beloved friend of mine collected bears as a hobby. We chased all over London looking for Brittanica Bear.

  2. Thanks, Mary Margret! It's fun to take a break from writing sometimes and create something else. :)

  3. I have a good friend whose house is FULL of bears! I'll have to get one from you sometime.
    As far as my hobbies go, I have a long list dating back the last forty years or so. I've raised and ridden horses, grown tons of flowers and vegetables, cooked, canned, made jam, made bread, crocheted afghans, made sequined shirts for a country singer, made candles, and, of course, have spent a tremendous amount of time reading and writing books! I know lots of people who say they have no hobbies whatsoever, and they have SO much more spare time...

  4. Thanks, Cheryl! Yeah, I've hooked rugs, embroidered pictures until I couldn't find anyone else to give them away to--which finally led me to personalizing bear paws!, made quilts, made jams from wild blackberries and currants in Oregon and Oklahoma, only Oregon didn't have chiggers when we gathered the berries!!! I can't imagine how'd you'd find the time to do all that you do with working too! :)

  5. I love it when my writer pals show us their other talents. Love your bears and their fabulous creative outfits. When you put together a werewolf bear, I must see it. I've been trying to picture how to convey it . . . maybe a letterman's jacket? Haha, memories of Michael Landon. Thanks for sharing.

  6. Lol, Christina. My mother keeps saying, "You can't make a werewolf bear. That's ridiculous."

    Hmmm, I did look into it, but...

    One year I was asked if I could make a camel. :) Do you know how hard it is to make spindly legs like that? I did make some dragons though. :)

  7. Terry,
    NO reason why you couldn't make a werewolf bear...just have no idea what it would look like.
    BTW, I wasn't doing all of those things at the same time. Hobbies come and go....

  8. I agree, Cheryl. Just got to come up with something that works! It would be fun to do. :)
