Such a lovely but busy few weeks!

I can't stop smiling! Yesterday I got my online copy of July's Teddy Bear Club International with my bear on the front cover! Remember that "big" bear I made a while back well that's what he was made for and I'm delighted. Its been a dream of mine to have a bear on the front cover of a magazine since I first started making bears and thanks to the lovely Kirste at TBCI my dreams have come true! There's also a 4 page article on me and the bears on page 14, I really couldn't want for more. If you would like a copy pop into WHSmiths or visit where you can buy a copy when it is available.
I've feel like I've got nothing done this week, I had to work as usual Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday and because I've been so tierd have done no bear making in the evenings (I usually work for a few hours every night!) I think its good to have a few days off then come back all fired up with new ideas! I also had a job interview yesterday, if I get the job I'll be working for Amersham and Wycombe college in the Health and Social Care department as a NVQ assessor. I qualified last year and have been waiting for the perfect hours to come available somewhere so I don't have to leave my other job, fingers crossed that I'll hear something early next week!
Right today I'm going to get myself sorted, there's muddle everywhere and I can't make bears in this mess ;-)

Teddy Bear Artist Event

Wow what a wonderful day it was yesterday, a day filled with great bears, talented artists, lovely collectors and the most amazing organisation. Samantha did a fantastic job hosting this show, as did her family and friends helping out with all the extra touches. Samantha was very brave to organise this show and all her hard work certainly paid off. I enjoyed myself immensely and can't wait until next year. A big thanks to everybody who purchased one of my bears or my mouse, which seemed to prove very popular!!!!! (I will be making more) I was delighted to win runner up in the exhibitors challenge for my winter entry "Winter Pickings" I was completely gobsmacked as the standard of bears was brilliant, I have a big smile on my face now.

A massive THANK YOU to everybody who voted.

A little bit behind......

No matter how hard I try and how hard I work I always seem to be behind, I've been working solid since my return from Devon, I've only had one weekend off and still I just want to complete one more bear! To top it all off I'm going to see the Foo Fighters tonight! I've had the tickets since December last year and its sods law it falls the weekend of an important show, I considered not going, but that's just plain silly so I'm busy working away until I absolutely have to stop, I've still got tomorrow and who needs sleep anyway!

I've have managed to added the last few bears that I have finished to my preview page today though take a look at
