First Preview

Hey Everyone!
I've been slowly working and brainstorming my pieces for the upcoming online show. I have one bear finished and another one almost done (I'd say that I've done about 3/4 of the work on him). So that still leaves me with 3 1/4 bears left to complete! I better get busy!

I wanted to take a moment to share this piece with you. I can't actually show you any of the bears for the show until the actual show date, but I thought I'd give you a preview of an accessory that I purchased to go with one of my pieces. It is a vintage (1960's) tin toy drum with little bears on the side playing different musical instruments. I thought it was perfect to fit in with the parade theme!

More previews to come!

Bears on Parade

Hey Everyone,
In a little over a month, I'll be participating in an online show produced by Back Roads Events/Teddies Worldwide with the theme of 'Bears on Parade'. I've been so busy with school that I just haven't had the time to work on bears; however, school is nearly over and I've started planning the bears that I'm going to be making exclusively for the show. I have some ideas relating to the theme, but I thought I'd ask you, my collectors and fans, what do you want to see from me? What can you think of relating to a parade theme that I could possibly recreate? I'm open to your ideas and suggestions. Feel free to comment on this post, and watch my blog for updates with new bears and more details about the online show!
