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.


  1. oh how exciting, a christmas show, I look forward to seeing your gorgeous characters. Hugs, Catherine x
