I started making bears in January 1998 and here it's already 2012! Fourteen years and I have loved every minute of it! I have met so many kindhearted people who share a common bond of anything hand crafted; vintage or antique "junque", animals of all kinds...oh, the list goes on and on! The internet opened a whole new world for me back then. You have broadened my horizons way beyond my wildest dreams! I thank you all for being a part of my life and I pray we may continue our friendships over the coming years. May God Bless You all abundantly with love, comfort, peace and joy. Happy New Year!
