Visions of sugar plums dancing in my head.....

The year before last I was lucky enough to go and see the ballet The Nutcracker, I found it breathtaking, the dancing was beautiful,the music moving, it was the perfect Christmas treat.

The Nutcracker has always been one of my favourite Christmas tales. I am enchanted by the story as I follow Clara and Fritz's battle with the Mouse King, I'm wowed when the Nutcracker turns into a prince, I join them in the land of snow and the land of sweets with the beautiful dances, and so the Sugar Plum fairy has to be my all time favourite character! With this as my inspiration I have just finished a pretty pink bear, she's based on my idea of a Sugar Plum Beary and I'm really happy with her, she'll be available at my Christmas Webshow on the 5th December.

The Teddy Bear Annual 2010!

For all of you who's really missed Teddy Bear Scene magazine since they stopped publication a while back, you'll be delighted to know that Collect it! magazine has decided to produce a bumper packed Teddy Bear Annual. Its a 100 pages of beautiful bears, teddy's, bears and Teddy's. The wonderful Kathy Martin has stepped back into her "Teditor" role to put this all together and if its successful then there's rumours that they will produce 2 Annuals a year. I do hope so!

Kathy generously invited me to be included in the "Teddy at Christmas" feature with this fun piece called Christmouse Kisses! These two little cuties will be available from my Christmas Show, right here on the blog on the 5th December.

The new Teddy Bear Annual 2010 will be available from November 19th from the following links:

Or branches of WHSmiths.

Dreams really do come true!

I've just been doing a happy dance around the floor because I've just found out that I've got into the Teddy Bear Artist Invitational next year!

For those of you who are not aware of this show it is, in my opinion, very prestigious. Its held in Binghamtom, New York, USA, in August and all the proceeds go to the Ross Park Zoo. It is a invitation only event and I had to submit my application along with photos for judging about a month ago and ever since I've been eagerly waiting to hear and today I got the good news.

This is one of my wish list things to achieve with the bears and I'm both excited and terrified, I guess the hard work really starts now. Over the next 9 months I'm sure there will be lots to post about this exciting trip me, the bears and the mice will be taking.

Must dash now I feel I really must continue my happy dance!
