Makoto-chan!



Just as I thought the beautiful Spring weather have arrived, it soon left us with rain rain and more rain...I don't mind the rain so much but it's been so cold and today, I even had hail stones dropping onto my balcony. I do love staying in on cold raining days and sew. Please meet my newly completed bear "Makoto"!! Like me, she also loves to sit by the window and watch the rain..."Makoto" is now living in Stony Brook, US. looking for a new home and is available from my shoppe.
Have a great weekend, whatever the weather may bring :-)

Dribble on eBay


It's been soooooooooo long since I've had a bear on auction on eBay. I've just listed Dribble for a 10 day auction. Dribbles auction ends 05 Oct, 2009. To go to his auction, just click here!! Thank you for visiting :D

a lovely day for crafting...


It's Friday again..my favourite day of the week which always seems to end so quickly for me and it's also raining again which makes it a lovely day to stay in, listen to the rain drops and sew.
This kind of weather makes me a little lethargic and so I decided to give myself a little break from the hectic week of chickadee making and do a little crafting instead. This is a big old jar I didn't want to throw out so kept it to hold my stainless steel shots. It has been sitting on my work desk for weeks and have been wanting to decorate it for a while and today was the perfect day to do just that!! :D

Although I like to recycle things, I also like them looking pretty...especially if I have to look at it all the time..pretty things inspires my creativity! hehe

At the very least, I wanted to decorate the lid but wanted it be functional too...I don't like to waste and everything has to have a purpose in my home, therefore, since I tend to run out of room to hold my pins on my other pin cushion created from my old recycled tea set, it only made sense to turn this into a BIG pin cushion....

Ta daaaaaa!! With my new eye candy, I can get just a little more inspiration each day.

If you have jars and thought of throwing them away...just stop and think what you can create on a peaceful raining day! Hope you have a great weekend coming up :D

LARGE CHICKADEES PATTERN & KITS are ready!!


Thank you for your lovely comments regarding Butterfly, she's been adopted today and have found a home close to home in Melbourne, Australia.
This is a slightly different pattern to my original chickadee pattern and is now available in my shop . This pattern includes two different body styles and two different head styles so you can mix and match to create your large Chickadee! :D
Besides the fact that Bump and Flop are a little jealous I didn't make them dresses, I had so much fun dressing up Butterfly so I'm going to make a dress each for Bump and Flop tomorrow...they want to look pretty too!!
Hope you have lots of fun with this new pattern! :D

A BIRTHDAY BOOK?


It's been on my mind for a while but due to the cost of publishing books in Australia, I had to put it in the back burner until just recently I've been asked by a few people to create JLB calenders and birthday book. You probably have noticed I've started a new poll on the right hand side of this blog. Would you be interested in purchasing a JLB birthday book if it was published? If so what is your favourite jlb bear you would like to be included in the the book from my gallery pages? Would love to know what your thoughts are, please feel free to comment, would love to hear from you! Thank you for your time :D

jennylovesbenny's bear family logo



Yesterday was such a beautiful Spring day...it was sunny and warm, very much what my body needed after what seemed like a very very long Winter! In the afternoon Jenny bear decided to hold a little indoor tea party...right beside my big windows so we could all take in the sun and in the comforts of our home....the only thing missing are the cupcakes Jenny bear complained...mummy ate all the cupcakes!!!! hehe

Am so excited that jennylovesbenny's bear family group is constantly seeing new members joining and photos are gradually being loaded and shared. There's so much activity already and it's only been the second day! :D Jenny bear is having such fun on her fb page too...she now wants me to create jlb gifts so that she can send jlb bears to all her friends...rolling my eyes and taking a big sigh...want want want...I think I've created a monster! lol

Instead of logging in each time, I decided to create a button for all members..
Here is a little button I made for our bear family group, you can copy and paste the html code below to add to your blog or website so with a click of a button, you're there!

ATTENTION: CALLING ALL JLB MUMS AND DADS!!


HELLO!!! My name is Jenny and I'm a jennylovesbenny bear. My mummy is Jenny Lee!
I'm usually a good girl and I don't ask for much but I really really wanted my own Facebook page and pleaded and pleaded for mummy to give me one and she finally said yes! YIPPEE..
Mummy often wonders about what happens to my siblings once they've gone to live with their new families and she gets so excited when she receives photos and emails from new parents.

She also gets really excited when receiving photos from new mums and dads who created their own jlb bears so we decided we would create a "jennylovesbenny's bear family" group.

This group is created for ALL my siblings and their mummies and daddies! This gives me a chance to meet my older siblings and keep in touch with my younger ones. I hope it will be a happy place for everyone to share their twitter, photos/videos, adventures, travels and to meet the other JLB siblings who have found homes all over the world!
It's also open to everyone, all are welcome to join in the fun! :D

Here is my facebook account, I'll love to be your fb friend: http://www.facebook.com/jennylovesbenny
Here is the jennylovesbenny's bear family group: http://www.facebook.com/jennylovesbenny?ref=name#/group.php?gid=154479535660&ref=mf

The group is still new ( less than 24 hours ) and mummy and me are still updating it so bear with us for now! There's already some JLB mums there already!! This is so exciting!!! :D
