Back home now after a lovely weekend in Devon, the B&B was excellent I would highly recommend The Swallows Guest House in Exmouth if your ever in the area, such a big room, with lovely owners who cooked a wicked breakfast! (no clearing up all weekend was bliss too) It was also about 3 minutes from the show venue so that really was a luxury walking down with my trolleys in the morning. The show had about 45 exhibitors all quite different, there was a mix of old and new artists, new bears and old bears. A big thank you to those of you who took a bear home with you from my stall! I met some lovely new people and discovered some wicked minature bears by a new artist Maria of Blee Bears http://www.bleebears.co.uk/ check out this lovely lady's bears, I think they are fab and sure she's going to be one to watch over the next few years! She had the most adorable cream and blue elephant that I loved and if I'd sold just one more bear I'd of brought him but alas paying the overdraft comes first!
I'm now hard at work for the Stratford show on 8th June, I'll be putting a preview page up on the website hopefully by the 1st June if not before, currently I'm working on a pale green bear that I hope to put into the exhibitors challenge under Autumn! I've also got spring and winter bears half finished!
For details of the show please visit Samantha's wonderful website full of information, I love how organised this girl is! Its going to be a brilliant show! http://www.teddybearartistevent.co.uk/index.htm
