WOW what a weekend!!!

Oh what a lovely busy, crazy weekend I've had!
Firstly Saturday was spent getting ready for my Christmas Blog Show, as I photographed bears/mice and sorted out my blog I was nervous, I always worry that I'll sell nothing, who knows why I worry because my lovely customers never let me down and I now have found homes for all 9 of my little ones. A BIG thank you to everyone who supports my work, you make my job so very special.

Van Gogh, for a bit more information

Secondly on Sunday me and Mum traveled down to the British Bear Fair in Brighton, it was so lovely to be the other side of the stall for once and we and fun strolling round and catching up with all our beary friends. The main reason we went to the fair was because it was the finals of the British Bear Awards, my little Van Gogh had been nominated in the miniature category and I was delighted when he was awarded 3rd place, the competition was immense and I was really shocked to here my name being called out! If you would like to see who won in each category there's a list here.

Now I must get myself sorted for Christmas, I have just one more little bear to make, lots of presents to get and planning to do, I'm having both sets of parents here on Christmas day and although I'm looking forward to spoiling them for once I am worried that I'll burn the Turkey!

  2. I saw all those sweet little bears and I am glad that they all have new homes for Christmas! Congratulations on two accounts - the second one for the honor at the British Bear Fair. Yea!

    Having been in your shoes recently with the show, I can relate to your nervousness. Now it is history, and you can enjoy the holidays. And I hope you do!

    Merry Christmas - to you and yours!
