New borns

Every commission I do is special but every now and again I get to make VERY special bear and over the past week I've had 2 special bears to make for my good friend Jackie. Last weekend she was made a Grandma for the first time TWICE!!!! Her eldest son's girlfriend Naomi, who also happens to be my good friend had a baby girl, Megan Isobella on Saturday and the Jackie's 3rd eldest son's wife Lindsay had a baby boy Blake on the Sunday!!! Its been cuddles all round and I have to say Megan is one of the most content babies I've ever met, just cute, cute, cute! Anyway Jackie's a big fan of my bears and commissioned two bears almost as soon as she knew the girls where expecting and here they are!

A successful day at Hugglets!

It seems all my hard work was worth it as Sunday was fabulous! It was such a lovely day, you can always rely on the Hugglets team to make it a special day. I got the chance to catch up with old friends and make new ones, had lots of fun talking to collectors new and old, I even managed to run down to purchase myself the sweetest tiny bear from Samantha of Mary Myrtle Miniatures, Teeny is only 5cm high and now sitting in pride of place within my own hug!

Thanks so much to everyone who brought a bear or mouse your support of my work means so much.

I've now only got 2 bears available that I'll be popping on the website shortly!

For now its back to work, there's the website to update, a big Hamley's order, commissions to finish and its the Inn on the Lake show in a few weeks, gosh and I thought I'd be able to have a rest!!!!!!

Packed & ready to go?!

Well I'm almost sorted, I've got the bears all packed up, the stand etc and I've been running through my "show list essentials" in my head for the last hour! All I left to do is work out what to wear!

I'm off to a 30th Birthday party tonight, (A BIG HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my lovely mate Matt!!!!) Usually I would be finishing off the last few bits but had to get myself sorted early, I'm driving so no danger of me having a hangover in the morning & I've already warned people I'll be leaving early, lets just hope I can sleep tonight, I often lay awake worrying before a show, either that or dreaming I forgot all the bears and had nothing to sell.

Anyway lets hope you see you there all bright and bushy tailed!!!!!

Counting down the days...

There's only 2 more sleeps until the big day and I can't wait! Even though I'm dead nervous about: 1. Not getting there as it will be the first time I've driven into London (Usually my very great mate drives us!) and 2. What if I don't sell anything!!!!! I get this overwhelming sense of "I'm not worthy" a few days before the show and it doesn't really leave me until I've sold my first bear, its silly really we've been doing the Hugglets show for a few years now, but its just so important in my eyes and there are such an amazing amount of talented artist there I wonder how I ever got offered a table, but the minute I sell I start to enjoy myself, there really is nothing like a Hugglets show, every year I do better and better and have had lots of enquiries on the preview page but its still nerve racking. In one way I hope these nerves never leave me, it makes me want to produce better bears and I would hate to become complacent about what I do. So for the next few days I'm going to be a little nuts, not really any different than normal some might think ;-)

If your thinking of coming to the show I'd recommend it highly, its going to be wonderful you can find out more details here:

Do come by and say "Hello" if you can, now I must get back to panicking!!!!!!

Only one week to go!!!!!!!


I always have a mad panic before a Hugglets show, no matter how organised I think I'll be it never seems to work out as I planned, this time is no exception, I'm way behind! However I have managed to upload my preview page today as promised! There's a few more bears to be finished and I'll hope to get them up by the end of the week, but in the meantime take a peek at whats finished so far.
