Looking Ahead in 2010!

Hi guys, well Easter has come and gone and the time just seems to be flying by for me so quickly, that I thought I would share my upcoming plans for the next few months ahead.

For those of you patiently waiting for any new creations, I am planning to work on a couple during the month of May, with a "Cory" inspired panda in mind and a Fantasy Critter to be introduced to coincide with the "Fantasy Ball" Online Show.
I had big plans for this online show, but unfortunately, time got away from me, due to other commitments and I had to withdraw from both the competition and the actual online show. However, I have been so inspired by the theme of the show that I will endeavour to have a brand new critter available around the end of May!

June and July is dedicated to another order and show exclusives for my hometown "in the fur" bear show in Perth ( details below ), this is the only show I will be attending this year, and after that, orders will have to become my priority once again.

For my ever patient collectors that are waiting for "Antonio" and "Casper", ( you know who you are ) they are nearly completed and will be with you very soon!

The W.A Teddy Bear Challenge - 30th & 31st July to 1st August 2010

All show details are at , there is a competition, demonstrations, bear supplies and of course, new bears and critters looking to find their forever homes.

If you would like to be one of the first to view any of the new creations on offer over the next few months, please join my new "Special Sneak Peek" list by emailing me at , if you have already joined Russell Bears Members Club, you will need to join separately the "Special Sneak Peek" list to ensure you get all the details on new pieces.

The next new creation, a "Cory" inspired panda will be available in early to mid May and only Members on the "Special Sneak Peek" list will receive more information about him very soon. This time around I will be inviting these members to vote on his colour combinations, sales methods, and preferred listing times to make adoption more convenient for everyone concerned.
If you have any questions, please ask, I would love to hear from you!

Happy Easter to All

Wishing you all a happy and safe Easter holiday.

Boy, have I been a busy bear lady lately, as well as catching up on orders and finishing a couple of new creations for my website, I haven't been able to do much else due to some much needed renovations that have been happening to my home studio.
It's been a long time coming, lots of hard work, but it's nearly done!
Now I won't be embarrassed anymore taking collectors into my work space, no more yukky old carpet, and no more mess everywhere!!
So guess what I will be doing over the Easter holiday.....
I have already started reorganising and moving stuff back in...
still have to wait another day before the furniture can go back in.....

3 rooms worth of furniture and horded bear stuff is poked in all around the rest of the house, wherever it could fit for the last month...what a mess.....will take some more piccies when it is all done!
I think it's gonna make a big change, nothing like clearing out the old and making room for the new.
I can feel the inspiration brewing already!!!!!!
