Meet Billy

So I was at a store the other day in the toy section and noticed those Ugly Dolls. Well my theme this year for gift giving is homemade and upcycled. So I couldn't resist making one with more a teddy bear look for the cutness. I named him billy. He's made for a little girl I know out of upcycled upholstery and vintage button with a scrap fabric heart. I know he doesn't have a mouth but I thought the eyes had enough personality that he didn't need it and my friends that was over agreed. My hubby thought it was a horrible looking bear and couldn't believe I would do this on purpose, LOL, but my 19mo old LOVED him. So I guess I'm going to have to make one for her as well....LOL. So I figure Hey if it passed my toddler test I'm sure the gift will be a hit with the toddler (leaving nameless so the parents don't know, LOL) I'm giving this to for christmas. I even added a note....

"Hi, *****!
My name is Billy.
I may not be the
Cutiest bear on the
block but I was
made with lots of
love and a unique

So anywho, I know I've been gone awhile in the blogging world but with the holidays I've been busy busy. Busy with having fun with my family, now that my hubby is home, like going to or having christmas parties, went to an awesome Concert (first childless date we had in a LONG time, TEE HEE) and busy with getting all the christmas gifts done or bought. I kinda can't wait for the holidays to be over so I can get back to a slower routine. Though I have been enjoying life. Happy Holidays
