Happy New Year!

well I'm a bit late, but I want to wish you all a very Happy New Year! It's been all go here, back in my studio working on a commission bear and a panda. Leo, my bear that was nominated back in December in the British Bear Artist Awards has now returned to my arms. He is now available for adoption and is so excited to find a special new home all of his own.(UPDATE - LEO IS NOW ADOPTED)

Go to- - to see all his photos and my other bears.

I'm in a bit of a rush today, but I'll be back during the week to show you a little teddy restoration story! Catherine x

I was born in Belgium and plan to visit in Aug/Sept...I have heard my mother mention Anthwerp(hope I spelled correctly) I was born in Aisden..are you familiar with this place..tell me if you are please..I will be in Europe for 1 month visiting many blogger friends whom I've met!
In my post where I mention placing the Christmas tree in garden..DO IT and I assure you they will come and hide in it.Here they hide from the snow storms! A pleasure to meet you
I'll look forward to more visits.
