Late to the Party!

I have been working like crazy trying to have as many lovely Christmas bears for the online show as I could, but sadly, there are three which I did not finish. I plan to list them on my website sometime within the next week. If you are on my mailing list, you will receive a notice as to exactly when it will be, as soon as I know myself!

Messy worktable, busy hands!

The Preview Has Begun!

The preview for the Teddies Worldwide Christmas Treasures Online Bear and Gift Show is open now!

My preview bear is a 13" cub who is all decked out for playing in snow. Her cuddly white alpaca plush snowsuit, inspired by vintage "Snowbabies" figurines, is part of her body, but her hat, trimmed with fluffy mohair is removeable. Please visit to see Snowbeary and all of the other preview bears and to vote for your favorites!


Show News and More

This weekend, the 9th Annual Christmas Holiday Teddy Bear Show and Sale will take place in Hunt Valley, Maryland ---without me.  It is always a wonderful show with delightful artists, great promoters, and lovely collectors, so I was very sad to have needed to cancel. I have been struggling to keep up with bears this year due to commitments at school, and illness in my family. If you are going, I will miss you, but I sincerely hope you will enjoy the show as much as I always do.

This weekend is also the beginning of the preview for the Teddies Worldwide Christmas Treasures Online Bear and Gift Show. The show itself will take place November 21-23, 2014, and I am happy I will be a part of this show as I had planned. The preview begins this afternoon at 4:00, and collectors are invited to check out the artists who will be in attendance and to vote for their favorite preview bears. I do hope you will check it out!

I editing this post because I've just received some lovely news I wanted to add! There is a new Teddy Bear magazine making its debut, and an article I wrote as well as a feature on my work will be included in this issue! Bear Beautiful is the brainchild of artist Helen Gleeson, and it is available as a digital magazine and a beautful bound book! I hope you will visit the site and take a look!

This big cuddly fellow is Smokey. He is going to live in North Carolina and his new mom wanted me to name him after the nearby mountain range. I think it suits him! I am not adding to my order list at this time, but I am trying to get the orders I have finished between shows and school and life! Smokey is one of these orders. I am so thankful for such patient collectors!
