September Update

Whew! I battled THE HOT most of the Summer and I think I emerged the victor…AGAIN! (3 cheers for all of us who managed to REVENGE THE HOT)

I have managed to convince Elle to post some downloadable paper dolls of me in the Bears Howse Mercantile (click here) Esty Shop AS WELL AS to allow for FIVE CUSTOM ORDERS of little Hope Ornaments/Figurines. YUP! I try to keep Elle busy, otherwise she would just have her full time job at the library to occupy her time, which I’m sure must be a snooze fest. As a good boss bear, I wouldn’t want her to be bored or lacking in things to do, so I always try to offer creative work/ideas for her. (she IS excited about the opportunity to make little custom Hopes; she told me so!)

Here is a photo of the two poses: One is a stand-alone figurine that is a pencil holder & the other is a hanging ornament that can hang on a wall, hook, knob or tree. The stand alone Hope can be posed to hold a teacup rather than be a pencil holder and the flag can say anything one wants. I’m most excited to offer these for a limited time.

WE DID IT! $610 RAISED!

We did it y’all! Together, we raised $610 to send a chronically ill, special needs or handicapped child to Summer Camp at Texas Lions Camp this summer. In the previous post, you read about my GoFundMe campaign and my Camp Kits I offered for sale. Y’all answered the call by donating or purchasing a Camp Kit. Also, Plushie Wear made the official Camp T-shirts and will donate a portion of their sales to the cause. (Thank you Froggie and Gator and Crew)

Camp Hoop La Hoo Ray postcards

And now, I have souvenir post cards of Camp Hoop La Hoo Ray (by elleM) available in the Esty shop “Bears Howse Mercantile“. A portion of the sales of these professionally printed postcards will be donated to Texas Lions Camp. These cards come 3 in a set for $7 (shipping included) and are representative of the last 3 years of our plushie camp that plushies from all over the world on Instagram attend via a #. We just completed the 2019 camp and I’m already making plans for the 2020 camp.

Go check out Plushie Wear for a Hooman or plushie sized Camp HLHR 2019 Tshirt (sold through end of July) and then get your postcards from Bears Howse Mercantile. All of which are special souvenirs from a fun time at Camp Hoop La Hoo Ray (and most importantly, help a child attend camp and make happy memories as well).
