Gifts of Encouragement

Cancer Kickin' Cowgirl Bear
I am a two-time breast cancer survivor, and happy and thankful to be one.  During the months of treatments, I received many gifts of encouragement - cards, stuffed animals, food, rides to treatment, prayers, etc.  Another very needed gift was the gift of laughter and fun, because there were lots of non-fun times, believe me.  Taking these things in mind, I have created several gifts for breast cancer patients over the years, including what I would call fun themed gifts.  Just added to my Etsy shop today is Cancer Kickin' Cowgirl Bear.  I love the cowboy/cowgirl theme and thought it would be fun to provide a gift that encourages a cancer patient to "kick cancer down the road".

Cancer Fighter Bear

Cancer Fighter Bear encourages someone to "knock out cancer".  Again, a little fun, some encouragement, something every cancer patient needs.

Cancer Fighting Super Hero
Everybody needs a super hero sometimes.  Cancer Fighting Super Hero can provide encouragement at a time when you need something "super" to help you get through it.

The main thing these gifts do, other than bring some levity to a difficult situation, is they remind the recipient that someone is thinking of them or praying for them.  Sometimes letting a person know you care is the best thing you can do for them.  Combine these bears with a personal note from you and you just might lift their spirits.

Come visit my Etsy shop anytime: bearfamilygifts.etsy.com.  I have more gifts for cancer patients and lots of other "beary" good things.

The First Day of the New Way

I Care About You
Now that my domain, www.bearfamilygifts.com  is taking visitors to my Etsy shop as of this morning, I am very excited to operate my Etsy shop full time and added some new products last night.  I'd like to introduce you to those products.

First is a new breast cancer patient bear. https://www.etsy.com/listing/619385539/gift-for-breast-cancer-patientbreast
She is dressed in pink, of course, with a pink hat.  She is an "I Care about you" bear, holding a sign that says just that. (Update: this item as been sold!)

Patriotic Trio

My second new product is actually 3 in 1.  This is a patriotic gift or home decor, offered in 3 colors of bears and 3 colors of dresses.  I call them the Patriotic Trio, but the listing is for your choice of 1 bear.  If you would be interested in all 3, please contact me.  See this listing at https://www.etsy.com/listing/619395399/americana-decor4th-of-july-decor4th-july .

Please come see me at my etsy shop:https://www.etsy.com/shop/BearFamilyGifts anytime.  It's open 24/7.

Thank you for your interest in my products!  Suggestions always welcome.

Modifying and Moving On

Moving On:  On June 1st, I took all of my products down from my website and left only my home page to direct people to check out my etsy shop.  On the morning of June 7th, even that last page will be gone and anyone looking for www.bearfamilygifts.com will automatically be directed to https://www.etsy.com/shop/BearFamilyGifts .  

Modifying:  Along with moving on, I am modifying my product line.  Since there is a size of bear (out of 4) that I can no longer get, all of those designs are gone and I am concentrating on the other 3 sizes of bears, as well as different types of bears, some cows, and bunnies will be added.  So, out with many of my supplies, and probably in with a bunch of news ones.  My small room MUST be full of craft supplies!!!  And I'm sure it soon will be.

In the meantime, I am slowly adding items to my etsy shop.  Here are a few of the newest ones.

Gardening Angel Bear
A fun gift for the avid gardener, this angel bear comes with tiny gardening tools and watering can.

Red and Gold Christmas Angel

Looking forward to Christmas gifts and decor, I added the Red and Gold Christmas Angel Bear.  Lovely fabric featuring the shape of an angel on red and trimmed in gold.

Snow Angel Girl Bear

Snow Angel Girl Bear is a vision of winter loveliness in white and blue with silver trim.  The boa around her neck is white with silver strands,  She holds a cross-stitched sign that reads "Let It Snow".  Just a little winter fun.

Mr and Mrs Ornament Bears

My very newest addition, I made these for my son and daughter-in-law last Christmas.  The gown is ivory and the vest is black, as close as I could come to their colors.  Bouquet was also a close match to their colors.  Bride can also be in white, several choices on flower colors.

Stop by and visit any time.  You never know when something knew will be added.  I have many new items in the "queue".
