Advent fun

Well hello there dear friends. It's Horace here with you to share some festive fun. We've been a little neglectful of the blog lately. Wilbear's studying has tired us all out. All work and no play makes for a very grumpy atmosphere in The House of Bears though so I borrowed the credit card to pawchase some supplies for a Christmas project.

Oh good, they've arrived. Let's see what's in the box.

Oooh. A Tando Advent house.

And a lovely Christmas paper pack.

There's even some free ribbon included. How lovely.

I'd better start building an Advent house.

First, I'll read the instructions carefully.

Goodness, there are lots of pieces. Hmm, this may take some time

I think I'll need some of Podgy's special glue for the house construction.

I'll start with the little boxes - one done...

23 to go!

The shell of the house just slots together. easy pawsy.

Miracle of miracles, the box fits too.

Now to glue the sides. This is my technique to apply pressure and make sure the glue adheres properly. I was going to use Podgy for this step but we don't want the house to collapse under his weight, do we?

There. All done. I just need to decorate it now.

Gold and white boxes

With glittery gold and white numbers. How festive.


One finished house.

The bears said I could open the first box, as I made the house. Now, what have we got in here.

One for each paw. How yummy. Podgy offered to taste test them for me, but I think I'll be okay.

With love from the bears


  1. Awesome work Horace!
    Hope your fatigue eases up on you x

  2. Bravo bears - especially Horace, of course! I think it's very kind of you all to support Wilbear when he's feeling so under pressure, and it's very important to encourage him to take the occasional break to enjoy some crafting too... All work and no play makes Wilbear a Won'tBear! Hope you're all enjoying a restful, recuperative Sunday.
