New Teddy Bear Auction!


I'm so excited, there is a new auction in town!  

Artist Bears International is hosting it's first teddy bear auction.  It's kind of like an online teddy bear show, because the auction only runs from September 12 - September 14.  But it's an auction - like eBay only better :)

I will have several bears in the auction.  My starting bid prices will be below my regular adoption fees - and of course each bear will be one of a kind.


  • You will have to sign up for an Artist Bears International account in order to bid. Just go to www.ArtistBearsInternational.com  
  • Click "Login" in the upper left side of the page - it's in the black stripe.  
  • Create your account with the left side of the Log in page. 
I hope to see you at the show/auction September 12th!

Bear hugz,

3 New Tiny Teddies!

Wow summer has sure flown by!  I've been busy in the studio working on a new collection of mini bears - the "Tiny Treats" collection.  Each mini bear is named for a dessert, and will come with the recipe that he or she was named after!  Oh, and because it's been feeling a little like fall, I couldn't help but create the first Halloween bear of the year too ;)  You can find them all on the Available page.

New Closet Studio in Progress!

It can take me a while to settle in to a new place.  After almost 2 years of living in my new home, I've finally decided how I want my studio to be set up.

I wanted my space to be out of the way, and the room needed to have some daylight.  We do have an "empty" room (well, almost empty) at the front of the house, but it just wasn't right for my studio.  It would make the whole house look messy if I didn't clean up my work.  (WHEN, not "if" LOL!)

So we decided I would use the spare bedroom.  However, the furniture in there needs to stay.  There is an antique bed, dressing table and a futon.  There IS a nice sized closet though!  That's where I decided to set up shop.

Here was my original inspiration - a photo from Michael's using their cube storage system:


I just LOVE this, but I didn't want to spend a lot of money.  I also already had a couple of tables.  But this did give me a starting spot for an idea.  

This is what I came up with to start with....

Not nearly as pretty, but it's a start!  I've  had the plastic drawers for years; the portable tables for about one year.  At this point I've still got lots of "stuff" on the top shelf, and my mohair is in Rubbermaid tubs in 2 corners of the room.  Not real pretty when company comes to visit, but at least I can collapse the one table and close the doors on the "studio".



Just last week, after finishing my taxes, I decided to work on the studio a little more.  I found another storage area for the "stuff" on the top shelf and brought my bear collection out.  They are up there just temporarily.  

I like having the door on the left half way closed as the window is behind me and so daylight bounces off the door.  I also have a poster board there where I keep my many many ideas on post it notes!

The next step will be to put the mohair in pretty new cardboard storage boxes I ordered from Amazon.  I will put them up on the top shelf where the bears are currently.  

Then I will install some simple shelves on both sides of the closet on the inside where the closet extends beyond the doors.  The right side will have my office stuff (computer, printer, etc) and the right side will have some of my bear collection so I can enjoy it while I'm working.  They won't all fit there, but I'll have fun rotating the collection.

I can't wait to share the new photos when I take the next step!
