NEW BEARS & Bunni too!

I have a bunch of new bears made, and now I just have to photograph them all...
Here are the first 2. One is a little pink furball, the other is a one inch tall baby bunni. The baby bunni is the first micro mini I have made in quite a while. The bear is the third I have made from a recycled 50s stuffed toy poodle. I love this vintage faux fur. I think the end result makes all the work of taking apart a stuffed animal totally worth it.

Continuing on with past projects: Here is a little micro bee bear that I made, and sold on ebay. This was a while ago, a couple of years, I think. The marker detailing on his head was done with a fabric pen, and is not quite black enough in my opinion. Since then, I have learned a few more tricks of the trade. Now I use Copic Markers, they are the Best!

More photos of past projects

Happy Belated Halloween! I was so excited about Halloween this year, it was going to be the first year I took my 20 month old daughter trick or treating. I had gotten her the cutest little snuggly warm lion costume from a second hand shop. Oh the best-laid plans of mice and men ( is that how the quote actually goes?). So my daughter and I both came down with the flu the day before the big day. And were stuck miserably at home while everyone else celebrated.
....Abrupt change of subject...
Here are some more pics of past work. Hopefully tomorrow I will post some present stuff.
The first pic is a little bat bear I did either last year or the year before that. Sold on eBay. Boy, I loved that little bat. I must say it was one of my favorites. The other 2 pics are of a little micro anime cat in his little mouse car that I made, and a pic showing how tiny he is.

Going through stuff

It has been a very long time since I have done anything with this blog. But I have been going through a lot of pics of past bears I have done. I am going to start posting them for fun. First up is a little Halloween Panda I made several years ago. I can't remember exactly how tall he was, I think around 2 1/2" tall. I sold him on eBay. By the way, If anyone who has ever purchased a bear from me happens across this blog, I would love to hear from you!

The chick magnet

I have been such a naughty girl with this blog, but I swear I'm going to change my ways...
It's soo much more fun to just read all my favorite blogs....
So anyways, here's an update:
I have tons of finished bears and partially finished bears. It's like a bear explosion all over my desk and work space. The finished bears are either bears I just can't bear to let go of quite yet (this group seems to be growing) or bears that need the perfect little accessories before I can sell them. I just can't seem to bear to sell a bare bear anymore. The problem is, it seems to take more time to think up then make the perfect little accessories than it does to make the bear. My other problem is, and my dear husband makes fun of me for this, is that I seem to have to take at least a hundred pictures for each and every bear, then I have to go through and edit them and decide which to use. Oh well, everyone has character flaws.
So I finally got this bear finished and photographed. I've had this idea for quite a while:
He's the Chick Magnet (husband came up with name)
This little bear sure loves to party with the chicks, but please don't hold it against him!
Anyways, I haven't decided whether to eBay him or list him on Etsy.
I have not listed a bear on eBay for quite a while now, but I keep thinking I need to start doing it again.
