OH MY GOODNESS!!!! I am so excited; I got through to the top 3 in the judges voting for THE BEAR ARTISTRY AWARDS with my bear RANGOR (Category 16" & above undressed). It's now down to the public voting to find an overall winner so please take the time to go over to the website and cast your votes - but be quick voting closes on the 8th November!
I've not posted for a while as migraines have hampered my creativity but today the sun is shining and my mojo seems to be back so what better thing to do but get out the mohair and faux furs to plan bears for Woburn in June. Here's a selection of the natural realistic ones I have.
This is a new bear design in the making; his taken a whole metre of Schulte alpaca fur and is super soft. It's my first bear with claws and I've experimented with a more realistic paw; 1 down just 3 to go!
With just a few weeks to go until the Hugglets Winter Bearfest there is fur and fluff flying everywhere in my workshop while I get bears ready for the big event. Be sure to come and visit us in Hall 4 (upstairs) on stand 134. Be sure to follow us on Facebook to keep up to date with the latest makes www.facebook.com/montonbears
I received a lovely email from a free lance writer today named Bryony Harrison. She wrote a lovely piece about last September's Hugglets and even mentioned me and the Monton Bears! Here's the link so you can read it too.
