My First Blog Hop!!!
Hi all!! Hope your weekend is off to a good start. I just wanted to let you all know that I'm going to be in my first blog hop!! woo hoo!! Jen over at Jen's Craft Corner has asked me to be in her Teddy Bear Blog Hop on Friday, September 9th. I'm pretty excited since I've never been in one. How nice is that?!? I didn't know that the 9th is National Teddy Bear Day. Here's a little background on the teddy bear:
(Taken from: http://www.festivology.com/topics/teddy.html)
Teddy bears are, of course, named after US President Theodore "Teddy" Roosevelt. The name came about after a 1902 hunting expedition. The hunt had found no game, so at the end of the day someone brought out a baby bear and suggested that Roosevelt might like to shoot it instead. Roosevelt understandably felt that this was not exactly sporting and refused. The incident was illustrated in a newspaper cartoon entitled "Drawing the Line" - which also referred to the political situation at the time. An enterprising New York toymaker saw an opportunity and brought out a cute stuffed bear named "Teddy's Bear". The rest, as the say, is history.
So, please come join the fun next Friday and stop by to check out the talented ladies that will participating with me. I'll even have some blog candy! ;) Take care and be safe!
