Easter Bears and a Bunny

I’ve been getting some bears (and a bunny–only one pink mohair left) ready for Easter. I’ve added the little lambs for free. www.celticbears.com

And baby and I were playing on the floor yesterday while I was trying to get some pictures. Tanner, the black havanese, and Max, the white, adore her. But Max is a little more wary because she grabs his hair. Tanner doesn’t mind as much. He just loves her. He was not playing tug of war with her on the toy…she kept offering it to him, but he rested his chin on it and they were practically nose to nose. So I had to get a shot. And yes, I washed it after the picture. She is still teething.

But while Keira and I were watching the antics of 2 squirrels out the window, the one taking off, and the other flaunting his tail in an aggressive taunt, suddenly, the hawk flew down onto the patio and sat on the chair right next to the window. And turned his yellow eyes on us. He sat there for some time, bold as could be as we both watched him, and then he flew off and baby got upset. He’s really huge. And I wish I could have gotten a picture of him that close, again!!! But I was holding on to Keira, so couldn’t.

Shipping another bear off today, then have a couple more to make.

Have to do the promo blogs for Flight of the Wolf today, and then, writing Howard’s story. Okay, having really awful nightmares at night, so this morning I was thinking, hmmm, what if a shifter has a parent that is a jaguar and one that is a wolf. In the real world, which is what I base my shifters on, though, hey, how many have you really met? Okay, so they keep their identity secret from humans…most of the time. But since they have a human half, it is possible. Really. Man falls in love with woman…have baby. Then what? She or he wouldn’t be able to have offspring? Or the shifter couple wouldn’t? Or…I could just make it up. 🙂 But I have to know that my readers will go along with it.

Off to do something with the puppies, then get to work.

Hopefully, I will be able to capture the hawk up really close and personal one of these times. That was such a shock!

Have a nice, nightmare-free day and night!!!

Teddy Bears, Sleepless Nights, and Losing Things

Have to make this short because baby is on her way over. I’m so tired this morning. Have you ever had one of those nights that you’re dreaming most of the night, but not really asleep because you know you’re dreaming and you can’t “wake” up either? I don’t remember the dreams, but you know, if that happens, at least it could be a dream ALL about the story I need to write so I could just run with it. But no….it has to be something totally weird and bizarre that I couldn’t write about in a million years. *sigh*

And with baby here all day, I can’t rest either. *double sigh*

So yesterday, and the day before, I was trying to get the bears finished for two orders. Pink Rainbow Bear and MacDonald Clan Bear. I have a couple of more orders to finish also.

I also found my watch charger! Darn fae hid it in my bear making materials box. It’s been missing since before I went to see my son in Omaha for Christmas. See, if I don’t look for something (which I did, all over the place), then I’ll find it when I’m not looking for it. Good thing I finally brought out the box to make the bears! Usually, I find something after I’ve replaced it. I did get a set of 2, that actually are supposed to charge faster than the one that came with this. So hopefully, I won’t lose all 3 of them.

The good thing is when I can’t find something I really want to find, I often find something else I wasn’t looking for but wondered where it had gotten off to some other time.

Okay, off to get ready for the little one. Have a super day!!

Uh-Oh, Look Who Came to Dinner! Cooper Hawk!

So the goldfinches were all over the feeders and having a ball. This goldfinch has a black sunflower seed in her mouth, and then suddenly they split….

Then the cooper hawk landed on the fence, looking for HIS meal. He came back again and sat on my table near the window, watched me watching him, but I couldn’t move my camera to take a shot. Then he flew off. I would have loved to have gotten him really close up like that!

Edits are done on Billionaire Wolf Christmas and turned in, and I finished one of the bears. Have to take a photo of it and get it ready to ship. The other needs to be finished this morning. So that’s next up!

And then, I’m off to write the next jaguar shifter story.

Have a super predator-free day!

Birds in the Rain

A dove with water droplets on its back, goldfinch, and red-bellied woodpecker. Tried to capture the cardinals, but missed them. 🙂 ❤

We had rain all day yesterday and the day before. The birds were singing and eating in the rain.

But I was diligently revising A Billionaire Wolf Christmas. Managed to get through 260 pages yesterday. It didn’t take long to make the few minor changes, but I had to read the book all the way through to make sure I caught everything. Forty pages to go, then  have to work on a couple of bear orders. 🙂 ❤

Have a super, wonderful, fun day!!!

Keep on Keeping on…

Baby sleeping on my lap. I had to use the light I had, which was just the natural light from the windows, because I couldn’t move or I’d wake baby. And it was incredibly hard to get all her features in focus when I couldn’t move the camera very far from her while she was sleeping on my lap. I took 17 pictures of her, and only this one (the eleventh one!) turned out nice and crisp. 🙂 ❤ But from viewing it on my camera, I couldn’t tell because it was too dark on the screen. 🙂 That’s why it’s best to shoot more than “enough,” hoping that one of them will be the winner!And because baby won’t allow me to put a head band on her, I came up with another solution for the fairy picture I created of her! Fairy flower overlay!

Yesterday, when I was taking the puppies out, I always walk baby, and was showing her a touch of spring: a dianthus flower! Two, in fact. And the grape hyacinths are coming up! The flower isn’t as crisp as I’d like it, but it was beginning to get dark, and I’d had to wait until baby went home!

They keep warning of bad weather–cold, but for now, it’s raining and mild.

On the writing front:The Demon Guardian Series are now all in print. And I talked to my editor about the changes to A Billionaire Wolf Christmas. She said it was brilliant. 🙂

So the edits, and making a couple of bears, are my priority this weekend. And then, I’ve got to knuckle down on writing the next jaguar shifter story. I’m still trying to figure out the opening. And I do think about it off and on all the time, running different scenarios in my mind. They’re sitting in a kitty cat club (jaguar run, but I’ve done that before, so maybe need something wildly different–yes!)

I’ve written 26 wolf shifter and 5 jaguar shifter books. The key for me is to always make them UNIQUE. There’s nothing worse than reading an author’s book that is the same as some other book the author wrote. It’s a challenge for me, because, obviously, it’s just me thinking up the stories. But, I watch movies or listen to the news or think about something that has happened in my past, and voila! I have it! But I can’t wait for that to happen, or I’d never write a story. So I have to keep thinking about it until I have it!

I’m feeling so much better, which is why I’m back to playing with my photography some too! Yay!

Seize the moment! Woohoo!

Playing with Baby

I got on the floor with her while she was crawling around and the next thing I know, she’s in a fantasy world. Yes, I know. An author’s overactive imagination!

She’s asleep, but on lap so can’t move.

I think my editor just called. I can’t move. *sigh*

Have a super day!

Wolf and Baby with Texture Backgrounds and 4 Stars RT Reviews! SOLD!!!

Baby was just telling me why the hair bow was a no go. When I showed her the picture later, she was laughing. But fake laughing. Like practicing. It was the funniest thing ever. Had me laughing so hard. I used overhead lights, sunlight from window, and one softbox light on the left of her.

The other photo is of the alpha wolf (darker), play fighting with his brother at The International Wolf Center, Ely. I’ll be going back there and hope I’ll be able to take some good pictures of them again!

SOLD! Sold the next 3 books in the wolf/jaguar series!! One will be the jaguar, Howard’s story, the next Brock’s SEAL wolf story, and then another Silver Wolf Town Christmas!

Feeling better and then do a bunch of stuff and I’m wiped out again. And my teeth feel like they all need to be pulled this morning…again. Ugh. But at least I’m getting more stuff done. I spent all day yesterday taking care of baby and managing to get the teen demon trilogy formatted the day before, and the covers and books uploaded yesterday. They came back for final proofing today, so will be working on that next.

I’m still trying to come up with the opening for the new jaguar shifter book/Howard’s story. So I’ve been mulling that over. I know what her mission is and his mission is, but I have to figure out how they meet up and the conflict begins. 🙂

Okay, off to get to proofing. Have a terrific day!!!
