Sneak Peek for the Who is Who in Bearmaking Show next week!

Well, after a mishap of making 4 bears from a revised V. Galli pattern that I learned I wasn't allowed to sell, I scurried to make 2 new bears of my own patterns that I designed specifically for the show.  I will be selling the patterns from my website on the day of the show, as well.  Here is a sneak peek of the 2 Booh's who will be available next weekend (Nov. 5 & 6) at the  Who is Who in Bearmaking On-Line Holiday Bazaar

Booh Bears in the Russian Webzine "Pretty Toys"!

I was so happy to see the photos I sent to the Webzine "Pretty Toys" published in their Holiday Issue today!  Below Boohbeary's photo is a link and it's FREE!   If you are a teddy bear artist, they are calling for photos, articles, etc. for future issues!

A Bag of Heaven from my friend in Maryland!

Oh my, what a lovely surprise I received today!  A special delivery all the way from Maryland from my friend, Cindy!   She knew how much I missed the Autumn leaves that Mom would send every Fall so she decided to step in for Mom and send me a special box filled with Autumn leaves from Maryland and Pennsylvania!  You are the best, Cindy!  Thank you so much for thinking of me and sending along a little piece of East Coast Joy!

Little Emily is Flying off to Russia!

Little Emily has found a new home in Russia!  She's the first Booh Bear to make her way Russia and I couldn't be happier!

So happy to have one of my patterns in Teddy Bear Review this month!

I just received a digital copy of Teddy Bear Review and I am speechless!  I feel so honored to have a pattern I designed featured in the magazine!   I wish Mom were here to share!  I know she would be so excited!  Her quilt patterns were published many times and it was so fun to share that excitement with her.  I feel her smiling from Heaven :O)   xoxo

Newest Booh Bear - a real labor of love!

Wow - this little one took me over 3 days on her face alone - I decided to use taxidermy eyes, needle felt eye surrounds and then re-root mohair around the eyes, as well.  Spending countless hours, I have once again vowed that it will be a while before I do this again!   I seem to forget how time consuming a project like this can be!   I love the way "Bebe Nellie" turned out, though!  Thanks Joanne Livingston (Desert Mountain Bears) for your amazing tutorials - I wouldn't have even tried to tackle these feats if it weren't for you!
