Sad news of TBS

This morning as I sit here still a bit blurry eyed I am still shocked at the sad news that Teddy Bear Scene will be finishing after the July issue. I had hoped that overnight this announcement would have been one big joke but depressingly not. This wonderful magazine was the first to feature my bears and Kathy Martin has always been such a support to new artists, she has been so kind to me over the last few years and I will miss TBS dropping through my letter box every month, what will we do without it! A sad day in the bear world :-)

Oh I do like to be beside the seaside....

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 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!

Devon cream teas! Yum

One of the bigger bears I'll be bringing to the show!

Me and Mum are off to Exmouth in Devon tomorrow morning. We will be exhibiting at the Devon Bear fair organised by Emmery Bears and Teddies of Trenode, we thought it would be nice to have a few days away in a B&B, rather than traveling down and back in one day! I'm really looking forward to having a relaxing few days and lots of cream teas!

If you are coming along to the show do please pop over and say hello to us, I will have 16 bears with me and Mum will have a large selection of her wicked knitting.

For more info on the show please visit:

New Bear

(Please note Kingsbury is now sold)
I've just popped a new bear on the website you can visit Kingsbury here
Kingsbury has a much fatter body than I would normally do, I really like him though, he looks very butch like you'd not want to mess with him but underneath he'd be a real softy!
I am now working on bears for the Exmouth Show on 18th May
and then its the Teddy Bear Artist Event in Stratford on 8th June
I'll be putting a preview page up for this event nearer the time,
along with my entries in the The Exhibitors' Challenge!
