I like to be optimistic but I think last week, my post about perhaps having TWO new creations to show you was probably over optimistic!  I am still working on the other bear but I was afraid another week will go by before I have anything to show you so, instead of keeping you waiting (and besides me being extremely excited to present to you) is my latest...TIPADY!
Tipady has just been listed on in my Etsy shop.  Please follow the link:
for more photos of my Tipady Rabbit and for adoption.
Thank you again for visiting my creations! Have a great week ahead everyone! :D

Al vida zein my lovely...

What a lovely weekend we had..the Sun was out and the Winter breeze was bearable!  I was able to take some photos of my latest Jenny Bear.  Here she is sitting in front of her little doll house, warm and snug with her new scarf. 

I won't be creating a listing for this Jenny Bear as she has found a new mummy already and is on her way to a more sunny and warm location in WA, Australia.   I've started cutting away again (hint, she's got long ears) and hopefully, I'll have a new little girl to show you soon.  Stay Tuned!


 Thank you again for visiting, it's always a pleasure hearing from you! :D

Rainy days and Thursdays...

just do not work well for me unless it is a sun-shower! We don't mind that do we Jenny Bear?  We LOVE sun showers.
Well, I enjoyed snuggling up on my couch in front of the fireplace and knitting Jenny Bear her new scarf and now, I think she's complete and I'm happy with the finish.  I so wanted to take photos to show you today but my windows were overcast by the storm.  "BIG wind BIG rain" so all we could do was sit by the window sill, feeling cosy and safe. 
I will try my hardest to take a bunch of photos of my new Jenny Bear in the next couple of days.  I'm very excited for you to meet her! :D
Until then, stay warm and keep smiling! :)

Not quite just ready yet...

Wow, it's another week already?! I can't believe how quickly the week has gone by but I tell you, I do look forward to my Thursdays where I can just sit in my studio and sew.  It's been so cold the past couple of weeks, tis nice and cosy being held up (by choice) inside but this weather is playing with my moods...I just couldn't decide on her dress!!
Here is a little peek at my latest Jenny Bear...she's not quite ready yet, something is missing and I'm yet to decide I said, this weather is putting me a funny mood..indecisive mainly! 
Catch you next week! :D

My new studio...

Hi Everyone :D
My, it's been too long and i have missed you all.  Thank you to everyone who had dropped me a message to make sure I was still ok.  The past three years has been manic and my little boy is now 3y.o!  We've moved home and I finally have my own studio again..(look above)!

I'm still not back in full swing yet but I do have 1 day a week to spend on my JLB...I can't complain, that's 1 day more than I had before.  As you can see below, a new Jenny Bear is in the making and oh yes, it feels so good to be sewing again.  Stay tuned, she's going to be a very special little girl! :D

Cherish ME...

Cherish the people we love...

Cherish the laughter and joy...
Cherish the small things...
Cherish the moment...

"Cherish" is my latest bear design.  I started creating her before I took my time away and wasn't finished until recently.  She's been sitting patiently, waiting for her Wings!
Cherish has found a new home not too far from her birth place.  Thank you Mara for adopting Cherish!

Buta! oink oink

Before introducing my new JLB friend, I would like you to meet an old JLB friend, "Buta", an anime piglet.  He was on my earlier post: "This little piggy" and was designed and created for Bear Essence back in July 2011.  Now I can also offer his pattern to you.  This little piggy is 12cm/5" tall and he is part of my "anime" collection.  Buta is only available from my Etsy shop at the moment and you can download straight away after check out! :D 
Hope you have lots of fun making your own Buta!


Hello my friends, it's been a while I know...
I hope you've all been well.  I'd like to give a heartfelt thank you to everyone who took the time to write to me during my absence, for your concerns and your continuing support.  I'd needed to be away for my family but am back now and am ready to make you smile again. :) 
I hope I can delight you with my happy characters once more and of course Jenny Bear's simple pleasure adventures!

Stay tuned! I shall have a new pattern to offer you very shortly!

Sponsor: Jenny's Tea Party!

Only 1 day, 6 hours and 1 minute to go before my long walk!! I'm very excited about it but at the same time, can't wait to get it over and done with!! :D The team and I walked 40km a couple of weeks ago and into the night during the last couple of hours. Let me say, I didn't like walking in the dark especially through the steep up hill slopes of the rain forest with the fern and tree branches smacking me in the face from my fellow team member walking in front of me! hehe
I think I fair pretty well after 40kms with only my little toe blistered like a red grape and my right heal blistered like no pediatrics would like to touch!! LOL Having said that 40km is far from the 100km which we're about to test our walking sticks with but we will certainly do our very best to finish. Just before the big day, I must thank all my family, friends and customers who has made a donation. Thank you so much Heather (my No.1 fan) for sponsoring me with her newly created "Jenny's Tea Party" Facebook page. "Jenny's Tea Party" is Heather's own collection of JLB bears. It's such a delightful place to be with lots of gorgeous photos taken by Heather herself. Best of all, it is open to everyone so please pop on by to "Jenny's Tea Party" and join in the fun! :D

This year, my friends (Tisha, Rachel, Ben) and I have signed up for the 2012 Oxfam Trailwalker challenge. Our aim is to complete the 100km walk within 48 hours and also raise $5000 for the Oxfam charity. Please help support me and my friends by donating as much or little as you can. Just visit our teampage below which we be updated as we meet and train. Any amount over $2 is tax deductible. Our Team number is 105 and our name is "Proving Them Wrong" but it soon shall be ...

"OMG What did I get myself into!" heck, we might not be able to prove anyone wrong but you can be assured we will do our darnedest!!

To also help raise money for our team, I'm offering a space on my blog to advertise your banner/logo for just $25 and for $50 you will also get a featured blog post. The logo will be on the side bar as you can see on the right. It will be put up once sponsorship money is received until the end of the walk date 23rd of April.

What do your sponsorship mean to people need?
$20 is enough to buy a blackboard, improving the quality of education in a poor community in Cambodia.

$50 is enough for a Sri Lankan community to grow and nurture a sustainable, communal vegetable garden.

$80 can help pay for a women's crisis centre in Papua New Guinea, providing vulnerable women and their children with a safe place.

$110 can provide training for a Malawian farmer in new techniques that helps make the land more productive. For many more examples visit the Oxfam Australia website at

This space is for everyone and not just bear artists...if you have a business or just a website or blog to promote. Sponsorship money can be debited directly into the Oxfam account through my team page

If you would be interested in becoming a sponsor, just email me for more details. Please pass this on to anyone you think may be interested. Thanking you in advance and please wish us luck! :D
