Glad you’ve found me – my name is Kateri and I live in Scotland with my husband and son.
Just like Batgirl (Barbara Gordon) I’m a librarian by day but, unlike her, I spend my evenings hanging with my family, crafting, reading, absorbing popular culture or doing stuff for Girlguiding – I’m a leader for Scottish Senior Section Lones which supports girls who can’t attend a regular unit.
I seem to be stupidly busy with all of these activities so often fail to post daily or weekly instead most of these posts appear during holidays, weekends or the best of all breaks from work – the snow day. It has been said that I’ve blown my pension on stickers and crafty ideas which is true (though I’m sure those 1980s stickers are now collectibles). I’m pretty sure my road to hell is paved with the craft projects that never happened.
I’ve been crafting since I could handle a crayon (mother is an art teacher) and I’ve been making and designing my own miniature bears (under 3”) since April 2003. My bears and critters are continually evolving, so each one is usually unique (this is closely linked to my attention span and loath to mass produce as I find it really dull).
If you want to get in touch you can post a comment or email me at kateriww(at)gmail (dot)com
Thanks for visiting! Kateri

P.P.S. Bahoochie is Scots for bottom, bum or backside. Pronounced ba-hook-ee, it is used in a friendly manner, often with children. Since Scots is a spoken language there are different spellings of bahoochie including bahookie and behouchie.
Bahoochie was chosen as the spelling because “Animal ABC; a Scots alphabet by Susan Rennie” has B for ‘birlin bears wi big bahoochies’. If you are wondering, this means twirling bears with big bottoms.
