Dawson1Meet Dawson, a huge 32″ tall bear that is also quite wide too. This huggable jolly fellow is listed on eBay in an auction ending Sunday, November 30th. He is the best Christmas present anyone could hope for. He’s too big to fit down the chimney but would be happy to pre-taste any milk and cookies while taking up most of your sofa awaiting the arrival of Santa.

I had the loveliest time in the UK, starting my trip off at the sweetest shop in Scotland, Silly Bears, where the proprietress Julieann and her wonderful staff treated me to the best hospitality to be had in their fair city of Aberdeen. I met so many talented and friendly people including fellow bear makers and I look forward to returning again. Hugglets in London was everything I had imagined it would be and I can tell you that it was like a fairytale to be able to visit, and teach, and learn, and experience this wonderful country.

My hiatus in preparing for my UK trip and the time there has greatly inspired my art as well as bought me valuable time for healing my hands/arms so that I could take on my massive grizzly designs as well as other new patterns I was aspiring to create.
