Working on New Bears

Although I loved the Renaissance Faire, I LOVE having my weekends back!! I'm working really hard on 5 more bears. They are all Pocket Bears - 1 Panda and 4 fall colored bears. I hope to have them finished soon. The little guy up there has already found a new home, but I always like to post photos with my blog posts ;)

I hope you'll see a post soon entitled "5 New Bears!"

Einstein - a New Mini Bear!

I'd like to introduce you to Einstein, my latest miniature mohair bear. Einstein is one of a kind, standing at 3.75" tall. Yes, he's fully jointed and can stand by himself! Einstein is not on my website yet, but he is available in my Artfire Shop!

I want to hear about your bear collection!

I am a collector as well as an artist, and I LOVE to hear about other people's bear collections! Also, although I do have a "Suggestion Box" on my website, it can sometimes take "forever" before suggested bears come into being...often due to fur inventory.

So I thought it would be fun to do a series of fast & easy surveys. Here's the first one of the series....
What Size Bears do you Collect?

New Panda Born - Pumpkin Spice!

A new 8" panda has been born today. I thought for sure he was a girl, but nooooo, it's a boy! Never trust those ultrasounds LOL!! Please welcome Pumpkin Spice!

Pumpkin Spice is an 8" panda looking for a new home. In an effort to spend less time working on my website (and more time working on bears) I am not updating the website every time a bear is born. He IS available from my Artfire shop here if you don't want to wait for the website update ;)

It took a bit longer to finish Pumpkin Spice today that I anticipated... my thoughts have been with all those who lost loved ones 8 years ago today. :(

Summer's Gone - now Back to Work!

Myself, Hubby and Katie - a good "Faire Friend"!

I am dreadfully behind on emails and I am so sorry! I'm hoping to catch up on everything this week.

Hubby and I spend many weekends of the summer at the Bristol Renaissance Faire in Wisconsin. We can't go on vacation with so many dogs (it would cost us more per night for them than for us LOL!) and the Faire is within easy driving distance for us - so that is our "vacation" during the summer.

We have a wonderful time and dress up too (as you can see), see shows, and SHOP! We go so often that we've made some very nice friends! Some friends we are able to see even during the "off season", and others we only get to see during Faire - but it's always fun when the season comes around and we get to see everyone again!

The only problem is that the weekends are when I get my house chores done... that means I have to do them during the week instead - which means less time for my bears. (hubby's been home a lot too this summer!)

Last weekend was closing weekend for the Bristol Ren. Faire. Now I'm trying to get everything in order - kind of like how it's like when you come home from vacation! I really enjoyed the Faire, but I'm ready to "come back" from vacation and get back to work! There's a bear show to work on too ;)
