Jess McCaughey's rules of bear making ( that i constantly break)

1. Do not start to obsess or work on a bear head ( especially eyes and nose and ear placement ) late at night, this causes for many a late night and little sleep, and mondo regetso the next morning.

2. DO not obsess/check bear head first thing in the morning as bears and bear heads like their maker never are at their best first thing in the morning. And is only cause for much angst and wobbles which even within an hour they are looking altogether a different ( and much better bear)

3. Do not check/obsess over/start to work on bear head or bear with five minutes to go before having to leave work or head out the door to something "important" , this leaves for much rushing and panic and late arriving.

4. Do not travel with bear in progress which is still in bits ( especially the head, if you are pretty happy with it) as things go missing on public transport and bear heads aren't often turned into at lost and found. Also to save self embarrassment of having to ring lost and found enquiring for lost bear head.

Are we sensing some sort of pattern here?
i think so.
Constantly set, constantly broken.
Rules are made to be broken right?
PS this was written in an attempt to stop myself from #1.

Those rules have to be broken sometimes, the ideas won't leave your head otherwise. Its a constant battle to switch off isn't it?!
Love this post.XX
