The Big Ta Da!

Well, here they are. All finished.....finally. Whoohoo! Party in a blog post!! I'm still working on getting all the details uploaded onto my website so it will be awhile yet before they're available. Actually, it will be later this afternoon, now that I think of it. It's Gracie and Walker's turn to go to the vet today!!
Just for fun, I'm posting a picture of the bears when I was just beginning to work on the details. What a transformation, huh? I love before and after pictures!!

The loveliest Thursday to you!!

Warmest bear hugs, Aleta

I just found your blog via Lisa at A Thing For Roses! I have to tell you that I am in awe of your bears! A dear friend of mine made bears for years and went to all of the bear shows. Yours are so sweet - love the guy with the tin hat!!

Happiness to you!!

It's interesting to see the bears at this stage! Nice work!

Aleta -
When you get a minute, please stop by my blog and see where the sweet little yellow birds I bought at Flourishes have landed. They are just perfect, exactly what I needed. I knew the minute the door opened and I saw them on the front table that they just had to come home with me. And I knew just where they would be. They are definitely conversation starters here!

Impossible to pick a favorite! They are all just beautiful.

All of these bears turned out beautifully... not that I'm surprised you have such a wonderful eye for detail. I'm sad I missed the update... I especially loved Miss Muffet.
