Just back from Hugglets!

Had a really fab day at Hugglets today.I sold lots of bears so just have 4  new ones to list in the next few days so watch this space.
One of the bears is Jeremiah and he is made with a hand dyed schulte mohair and is 5 inches high.He is priced at £55 with £5 uk postage and £7 overseas postage with full  insurance.
I love going to Hugglets to see all the lovely bears for sale and to choose from  the wonderful mohairs on offer.I am like a child in a sweet shop though when choosing the fur.I just want to buy them all so I can have one piece of everything lol. Having a piece of mohair in front of you is like having a blank canvas...who knows what sweet face will emerge and what character will come out.That is what I love about making two are ever alike!

Two more bears for Hugglets

I have 2 more bears to show you that are ready for Hugglets in 3 weeks.They are called Souffle and Chester.
Souffle is made with a lovely long cream coloured schulte mohair.I don't think that I have made such a hairy bear! Chester is a taupe colour and also made in a schulte mohair.He has a very endearing expression don't you think?Both bears are 12 inches high.
I have made bears for 8 years now and I still find that after all this time my bears never seem to want to come out the same....they all have their own little look.I see artists that make bears and their bears all look exactly the same apart from the colours used and try as I might my bears just choose how they want to look.It is great that they all look so different but also frustrating when I get a lovely face and  I wish they could all come out like that. I know now and have to accept that the next bear will look nothing like the last one as they all want to be individuals!!!

Teddies Worldwide Online Show

I have just accepted a place for the Teddies Worldwide Online show and will be creating some new miniatures especially for the show.
The show is a 2 day event and contains 75 bear artists from around the world.We all have to have a minimum of 5 bears for sale and these must be bears that haven't previously been for sale anywhere else.This makes the show great fun to visit so why not mark the date in your diary.
I got some lovely new swing tags in the post today for my bears.I am really pleased with them so am looking forward to using them on my show bears :0)
