Beary Sweet Notebook

This is Beary Sweet Sign and he is certainly sweet! I made this notebook for a friend that is moving to our unit at work. I have the idea in my head that my notebook is gold. It has been years in progress and I figure, if it's worth asking, its worth writing in the notebook... that way I don't have to ask again. So, I thought it would be worth giving her a notebook too to make her feel welcome.

It took me a while to think of something to write on the front of the sign but then I thought about it for a while and figured... when I get to a tough spot (usually about debits and credits!) I always think to myself 'what on earth did they say again??' then I go check my notes.

In person Beary is so rich with colour and shimmers he looks so CUTE! It will be a little bit sad to give him away but it's not as though I wont still see him everyday!
