Day 22 ~ 31 Days of Pandas

We are past the solstice! Is it getting lighter yet? Well, not really! It has been raining like mad, trying to catch up on the rather dry November we had. I’m sure the trees are thirsty, and really, I’d rather have rain than snow. This time last year, I was was stuck at home, because it snowed I couldn’t get down the hill, my power was out, and my car was in the shop because I had hit a deer a week earlier. So a little rain? Meh!

Meanwhile, it’s time for the next episodes of…

Bears Under the Big Top (starring the Wu Self!)

Day 21 ~ 31 Days of Pandas

Happy Solstice, everyone! It’s day 21 of 31 Days of Pandas, and the end of the days getting darker and shorter, could not have come at a better time. Here in the Pacific Northwest, it is raining buckets and dark by 4:15. Now that we have reached the Solstice, the days will slowly start to get longer and longer. Huzzah!

45 has been impeached, Chrispmoss is coming, and Mr. Wu has run away with the panda kindergarten to join the circus! What could possibly go wrong? Read on after the ‘toons for a brief announcement about the felty emotional support panda project coming in January on Kickstarter!

But now…it’s time for …Bears Under the Bigtop!

So…About those felted Pandas…

In early January, I am going to do one of Kickstarter’s January projects called “Make 100”, the idea being that you make a limited offering of something and agree to have no more than 100 backers. Within those guidelines, I have a bit of leeway, I started making these needle felted pandas a couple of months ago, because I felt (get it?) the need to take on a new activity to deal with all the nervous energy the current political climate engendered.

I’ve been thinking about how to structure this project, and what specifically to offer. I decided that in order to be responsive to which versions of pandas are the most requested, I would roll the rewards out in small groups. This will be a fairly fast and furious funding period, and I am going to keep the initial funding goal fairly low, because it really doesn’t matter how many people (up to 100) want one of these pandas, since there is no minimum order that I need to make as with the pins and patches.

The first group will get posted on the opening day (projected as Thursday, January 9th) and then on both Mondays, I will post new, more complex offerings, and all will be available till the project closes on January 24th. (If they haven’t sold out!)

Now, you CAN change your reward choice, and Kickstarter makes that fairly easy to do. Because of the limited nature of the rewards, it’s important that you change your choice within the Kickstarter website, so that someone else has a chance to get what you no longer have selected.  I will help walk anyone through the process if they are having a hard time figuring it out. I will have step by step instructions on my project page as well. It will be way too confusing if I get half a dozen requests outside of Kickstarter for off the record changes.

Not to sound all hey you kids get off my lawn about this but because of the way people pledge on Kickstarter, I can’t take requests for changes on other platforms (like Facebook, email, or here) and change them for you on Kickstarter. I mean, if I could change things within someone’s pledge, I could make them all say you pledged $1000, and head off to the south of France before you saw your credit card had been charged.

To this end, it is important that you use an email address that you regularly check when you sign up to pledge, as that is the best way to communicate right from the Kickstarter website.

It seems like there are always 2 or 3 people who don’t respond to messages or requests for information and I really want you to get your panda! And when you want to make changes, it’s really important that I know you’ve gotten messages from me.

So! Get ready to welcome a little felt panda into your life! Huzzah!

Panda On!

Day 19 ~ 31 Days of Pandas

Well, I’m sitting here listening to the “debate” in the house over all of 45’s crimes. Sigh…I think I got it right in yesterday’s ‘toon, quite frankly. I’ve been listening to Rachel Maddow read her new book Blowout, which is all about the oil and gas industry and how Russia is entangled in all of it. It’s a serious read with all sorts of tales of incompetence and corruption. You might need to read a little bit of The Panda Chronicles in between chapters!

Meanwhile, here is the next episode of Mei Xiang’s Nightmare Before Christmas!

Hold it right there, panda boy!

Panda on!
Bob T Panda

Just thought I’d pop in here with a thought about a Kickstarter Make 100 project for January. I’m thinking felted pandas… Whaddya say?

Day 18 ~ 31 Days of Pandas

Today is the day! Day 18 of 31 days of Pandas celebrates…

Impeachment Day!!!

A bear can dream, am I right?

We wish it was Impeachment and Removal Day, but let’s see where this goes. Maybe (hahahahaha) a few members of the GOP in the Senate will grow a spine. I know, I know…

Panda on!
Bob T we shall overcome Panda

Tune in tomorrow for the next episode of Mei Xiang’s Nightmare Before Christmas!

Day 17 ~ 31 Days of Pandas

Ah! it is Impeachment Eve! I’m going to be heading out to our local demonstration. I don’t think it will be as big as the one the day after the “inauguration” of our national nightmare. Still, it will feel good to join with other people who are frustrated with the path HWMNBN has been leading this country.  In the words of The Dude, and of Mr. Wu…

Dis agression will not stand, man!

Meanwhile, Mei Xiang is having her own nightmare…

Pinky does not travel light!

It’s been a long time coming….

Be da bear!

Day 16 ~ 31 Days of Pandas

We are on the downhill slope:

towards the shortest day of the year…
towards the vote to impeach HWMNBN

TOWARDS THE END OF 31 DAYS OF PANDAS!!!!!!!

We shall have one more day of kinder, gentler pandas from a more innocent time, before heading paws first into the maelstrom! A healthy serving of cake (by which I mean a really large one with extra frosting) may be in order as well.

Invite Pinky to your holiday parties, with this Pinky Paper Doll!

Day 15 ~ 31 Days of Pandas

Oh my goodness! We are almost at the halfway point of 31 Days of Pandas! Are you excited? I know that I am! This week we will continue with our latest Holiday (instant) Classic, Mei Xiang’s Nightmare before Christmas (Part 3 premiering on Tuesday!) and on Wednesday, we will have an Impeachment special! Huzzah!

But now, let’s take a trip down memory lane and see what pandas we were posting in December of 2012!

Bee-lieve!

Escape! Come with me, little cake, so we can be alone together.

Legalize cake today! Prevent illicit cuppycake activities.

THIS is a case for Inspector Panda!

Day 14 ~ 31 Days of Pandas

Whew! We survived Friday the 13th (not to mention the marathon hearing in the House Judiciary chambers.) To be honest, I did not watch or listen to that hearing. My capacity to listen to the republican naysayers yelling about how this was all totally unfair and besides, nobody can impeach the “president” except for the “president”!!! Otherwise it is a COUP!!!!

Yeah, um…no.

So, I’m getting ready to watch the entire House vote on impeachment, and to take to the streets the night before! Don’t forget to call or email your Rep in Congress and tell them what you think, whether you are for or against impeachment. (Not that anyone reading THIS blog is against it, but hey, I’m willing to listen to calm, well reasoned arguments *)

*provided you have actually read the Constitution and what it has to say about impeachment and the respective powers of the executive and legislative branches of government,

Meanwhile, here are some pandas to lift your spirits while we wait…

Day 13 ~ 31 Days of Pandas

Day 13…Friday the 13th…could we be any unluckier? Wait! Step away form the TV or Radio!

Time to forget about the great National tragedy for a few minutes while we join Mr. Wu, Bee the Bear, and all the rest of the gang for the exciting conclusion of …
