New Bears

So sorry its been a while, we have been so busy creating new things and entering contests.  Please meet Russell Scare Crow,  he was a challenge on the Guild of Master bear makers,  I had so much fun and I have discovered I just love making theme bears.  We will be at the Treasured Creation Craft show in November and then have one more event before Christmas..  At the shop we are trying to get more artist made gift ware in for Christmas too.
