Bill Boyd Memorial Kansas City Jubilee

Things are just about packed up for the Jubilee which runs from tonight through Saturday. I am looking forward to seeing the other bear artists and the collectors... and those from Good Bears of the World! GBW sponsors the show and the funds raised ( auction, entrance fees, table fees etc) go to support its bear giftings!!

Sunday.... early Sunday we head out to Omaha for a small doll and bear show. Due to a mix up the show was moved from last Sunday to this one.  This means we will be super tired Sunday night!

If anyone is nearby.. to either show... I'd love to see you!

Kansas City Bill Boyd Memorial Jubilee is coming up!!

I will be attending ( and selling) at the Kansas City Bill Boyd Memorial Jubilee next weekend!! The Teddy Bear convention is being held at the KCI Expo Center... a wonderful facility. Thursday night will be the Good Bears of the World  Annual Meeting. Friday will hopefully have classes and/or talks followed by early admission to the sales room for convention go-ers. Then the banquet and hand out of the convention souvenir bears! Saturday will have open paid admission to the sales room!

So...o a busy time! To top it all of, the Omaha,NE Doll and Bear show was unexpectedly moved to Sunday the 29th! So we'll be heading out for there in the wee hours of the morning!!

If you want or need any info on these two shows, contact me and I'll be happy to help!!

Bright Star Promtions online show

Well... Bright Star Promotions' first online show has closed. The whole procedure was interesting... from  setting up a webpage to show my bears and friends, to PayPal buttons, to watching  for sales,  to the final pack up, label and put out in the mailbox!! I was delighted with my sales... thanks to all out there who looked and especially to those who bought!!
I am doing the Christmas "Teddies Worldwide" online show in off to work I go!

Halloween is coming...

I saw tutorial for a cat by Sue Daniels... and just had to make one for Halloween. And being Halloween, of course it had to be black. The cat keeps an eye on a mohair pumpkin pincushion....

The cat was made from vintage black rayon plush!
They have all been packed up and taken to the Post Office for a long journey to the UK... Lancashire to be exact!!!
