Proud to be an URSA winner!

I am thrilled to announce that two of my entries have received awards in the Eighth Annual 2013 URSA Awards Competition. Both Nicholas and Rudy won third place in their respective categories. This makes Nicholas a two-time award winner, having also won a TOBY Industry Choice Award earlier this year.


This is such an honor for me to have not just one, but two of my bears receive awards in this year's competition among so many talented artists. My thanks to all those who voted!

You can see all the winners and their awards here.

Many Thanks!

The Beary June Online Show was a great success and I would like to thank all those who visited the show and stopped by my showroom to see my new additions.

Here are the photos of my show bears which I am delighted to report both very quickly found new homes.

Brodie will be making his home in PA.

Karlee will be making her home in CA.
I would especially like to send warm hugs and thanks to everyone who voted for my Brodie in the 'best of show' competition. I am truly grateful! Also, thank you to the darling collectors who chose to bring my work home and many thanks to Karin Jehle for organizing another wonderful show! I am looking forward to the next one!!

A TOBY for Nicholas

What a wonderful start to my year! I am delighted to tell you that my bear "Nicholas" has won a TOBY Industry Choice Award. This prestigious award is sponsored annually by Teddy Bear & Friends magazine. The competition is fierce and daunting. To say I am thrilled is an understatement...I am absolutely ecstatic!  WOW!!
This year's TOBY Industry Choice winners become the nominees for the Public's Choice Awards. The ballot and online voting instructions will appear in the June issue of Teddy Bear & Friends. I will be sure and let you know about it.
