I'm home again

I'm home again from 5 weeks travel and slowly I am getting settled again. I've been back 10 days already but after the office there is always lots to organise. My bears and I had a ball!!!! It was lovely seeing my family and friends again and the show in Switzerland as well as the workshop was a great success. I made many new friends which I am looking forward to keep in contact.

I loved London and only wished I had more days to do sightseeing. I visited my bears at Teddy Bears of Witney (photo will follow as soon as I will be more organised). Hugglets was great, also not as successful as the Teddy Bear Festival in Switzerland for me.

My bears have found new homes in Switzerland, France, and Scotland and the whole trip was just fantastic.

I am finishing the bears for Witney at the moment and after that I will design and make a bear for the Online Show on 6/7th November. After that I will have to get my act together and make bears for Woodend. I am looking forward to seeing many of you at this exciting show. This will be the first time for me at Woodend and I cannot wait!!!

Back from the Gold Coast

I am back from the Gold Coast where I thorouly enjoyed myself! The show was great and I always have a ball teaching workshops. It was fantastic to catch up with so many traders, collectors and bear makers, and I had many chats. I would like to thank Patti, Graham and Kryst from Kympatti Bears for organising a wonderful show.

I arrived home with a cold - the nose is running champion style. I'm now designing and making bears for the Swiss Teddy Festival and Hugglets. Only seven weeks and I will be on the plane to Switzerland - time flys, when one has fun!!!

I have also up-dated my website - why not enjoy a cuppa and have a look.

Little sculpey bears for Mother's Day!

I had lots of fun playing with sculpey (clay) and shaping little bears holding flower buds. The have glass eyes and come in different colours. These little fellows will travel in nice gift boxes and if you adopt more than one the postage will reduce accordingly. There are only 14 of them and they will not be repeated! So, FIRST COME, FIRST SERVED!!! They are available in the catalogue/giftware section on my website. I'm sure every mother would love one of these cute fellows and if you are not a mother, treat yourselves anyway. They are available from my website or if you live in Perth call me to make an appointment to drop in and pick-up one or two.

ACD Awards

I had a wonderful time in Adelaide teaching workshops and all the bears/cats/raccoons turned out beautifully! I just got off the plane in Perth and arrived home when the storm and the hail started. Boy, was I glad I was not on that plane anymore!!!! We were lucky and apart from a broken branch that flattened a few plants in the backyard do not have any other storm damage. So, after all this excitement I had another workshop at my studio and approx. 4 days to create my ACD Award Critter. This required thinking outside the box as fantasie is not usually my thing. But I love my creation!!!! I hope you will too - unfortunately, you have to wait till June to see it... For more information click on the logo on the right.

Time is flying by

My god, it is already a week since the Sydney Teddy Bear Fair - I really don't know what happened to the time. I had a ball at the show and many bears have found new homes. Hendrix and Melyna were especially thrilled as they went on a trip to Singapore! All in all, a very successful show and I really enjoyed catching up with everybody - traders and collectors alike! On my way home I was stranded at Sydney airport due to the storms in Melbourne. I can now truly say that I know the airport as I had a 6 hours stay there.

The organisation for the workshop in Switzerland is now in full swing and I am so excited about it. You will also notice that the bears will slightly change again. I have something in mind but you have to wait and see.

I have also just finished the new designs for Teddy Bears of Witney 2011 and I am in the process of designing and making an exclusive critter for the ACD Awards in June.

More news to be revealed shortly - so stay tuned.
