It's been a busy October but not much sewing as you might have noticed hence no photos of new bears for my monthly wallpaper download.  Instead, I had the pleasure of going through my old creations and found this pair which I'd custom made for a lovely lady who wanted a bear to represent each of her family member.  This pair represented her daughter hugging her baby brother Tristan :D  I do love this photo and thought they would make a lovely wallpaper for November! I hope you like it too.  It is now ready for download, just click here.
Have a great month ahead!! :D

Artist revealed and the WINNERS are...

For many years, I've been asked to provide a photo of myself for bear magazines and also by some of my followers however,  though I do love to take photos and especially ones of my bears, I am rather VERY camera shy.  Just recently,  I was asked to submit a mini interview with the Teddy Bear Review magazine for their salute to "Artists of the Pacific Rim" article which features Bear Artist in Asia Pacific and a photo of oneself was required.  Since I decided to send a photo to the Teddy Bear Review magazine, I figured it was time to show myself so here I am..."Hello World!!" :D 

I would like to THANK YOU all for the birthday wishes, for entering my blog giveaway and for your beautiful comments.  I'm so thrilled to announce the 3 winners....

The 1st prize goes to No.

Halloween Special ~ The Witch, her cat and a magic broomstick!

October can only mean Halloween and here's a little story of one of my previous bears, Beatrice, her cat and her magic broomstick...

There's my magic broomstick!! Where have you been hiding!?


yup, feels good to me!!

C'mon Dribble, hop on...

Hold on tight...

Dribble: "I'm sorry about that Broomstick"...
Broomstick: "maybe you two should have gotten a bigger broom!!"

As a Halloween Special, purchase Beatrice aka MOMOKO's complete kit and you will receive Boots complete kit in Popa's mohair which is a similar colour as Dribble's for free. This special will only last till Halloween..oooooOOOO...BOO! :D


Remember my old friend MOMO? I've just received more of his mohair so now I can offer you
25% off MOMO's complete kit! MOMO is approximately 23cm standing and he wears this gorgeous colour pile sparse mohair. If you like to take advantage of this month's special (until mohair is sold out), just look on the right side bar to order. The monthly specials are only available from my blog and not website and as always, feel free to email me if you have any questions.

Am so enjoying the Spring weather, Mum's just potted 20 pots of petunias for my balcony and I can't wait for them to bloom...going to sit outside and watch them grow! LOL Hopefully I'll have some photos of my cascading petunias to show you in the next few weeks.
Have a super day everyone and thank you for stopping by! :D
