New Show Announcement - Pet Palooza - April 2015

Hello Everyone

 I have been working each and every day getting ready to share with you the new collection of Seraphim Bears at this coming Teddies Worldwide show in March - Teddy Bear Extravaganza! I have FIVE bears prepared for the show and look forward to sharing this new Over Hugged bear design with you! Beautiful Victorian ribbonwork, vintage style bonnets, sleepy hats and bears of varying sizes...

 It has been a really wonderful year so far... creativity is flowing here at Seraphim Bears Studio and the fun just keeps on coming... I am thrilled to announce that I will also be participating in the up and coming Teddies Worldwide Pet Palooza show in April!

Teddies Worldwide

I have already begun design work on these new pet style artist toys based on our furry friends who make each and every moment of our lives a joy without judgement and giving us unconditional love! I am basing this years pets on my own so... if you know anything about me you'll know what's coming and if you don't it will be a surprise! I am going out on a limb with these artist toys and letting my artist doll background come out to play. These will be their own style separate from my bears and I hope you will enjoy them.  I am in the final stages of development on one of the doggies coming to the show and then will begin work on another doggie style and hopefully a kitty cat and bunny too!

This is a brand new show for Teddies Worldwide all completely based on your pets and the love they share with us...  there will be a "pet boutique" for both gifts for pet lovers and items for pets ... I will also be participating in the boutique and creating some crafty items for you to enjoy!!!

Really happy to back and creating again! Thank you for your support of Seraphim Bears and your patience over the last year while I and my husband and love of my life got through his cancer and my heart issues! I cherish you all and can't wait to share this year with you!

A touched heart is blessed!

Surprisingly, and I know it will be hard to believe... lol, but on occasion I get asked why I continue to make bears, or just why I do in general...

Among many factors in reguards to this ... I received a beautiful email today from one of my collectors and wanted to share it with you...

This is why I make bears:

Hello Michele!!
I was so excited when I finally picked her up last night at the post office.  The package was so pretty.  You wrapped her especially nicely.  Loved the bear stickers, very detailed, and the leafy paper.  Very thoughtful touches.  She had stayed very quiet behind the pretty tissue paper -- but I don't know how.  (It was such a long wait.)  She is absolutely gorgeous.  I can't believe I am holding this incredibly heavy delicious bear!!  I love her so so much.  Really love her nose and her belly BUTTON and that it is a button and her round round belly.  Did I say that I love her weight; it is just the perfect heavy weight.  And her face is absolutely special.  I know she is mine to stay.  The Milne quote touches the heart.  Thank you.  And thank you for the lucky pennies and heart pocket  and tea and EVERYTHING wonderful about Cordelia and that came in the box -- because I surely missed something.
She is SO much more than I hoped for.
THank you Very, Very much!!
I have always admired your artistry.  Always thought I'd wait and buy a bear with clothes but she caught my eye.  Even like your new babies with the pursed lips and "funny" faces.  Please keep well and sharing what you do so well with the world.
Love and hugs,

Thank you so very much to Rose for her beautiful letter! It touches my heart and brings tears to my eye each and every time one of my bears is able to brighten someones day, warm their heart and bring joy to their home.

I am so very lucky to be able to do what I do and THANK YOU ALL for making it possible for me to follow in my grandmother's footsteps. I know she looks down and reads these letters also and is smilin from above!

This email made my day, my week, my year and years to come. I save them all!

Hello all


Okay so I am putting all this information out there for ALL CANADIAN bear artists or any artist for that matter. As you all know that Canadian bear show ended last year and I have been trying to get connected with a women in my area who has been hosting a doll and bear show for seven years... I have finally connected with her and will be helping her to run this show form now forward...

I want to get more bear artists to this show. It is a beautiful location in Belleville, Ontario. Applications are now being accepted for this June 1st. If you are interested in exhibiting please contact me asap. Table prices are extremely reasonable and I will email you the information.

Starting next year I will be beginning an online presence for this show as well as advertising in the bear magazines. My husband will be creating our graphic posters/ flyers and I will be asking for your help to spread the word!

If we hope to continue to have a Canadian presence in the bear world... this is a good start. Belleville is located in Prince Edward County area, wine country and beautiful scenery and very close to the US borders. We have gorgeous B&B locations for guests as well as comfortable hotels. We are right on walking trails and water routes ... there is so much to offer! It will be well worth the journey!

Please contact me if you are interested in getting a table this year or would like to be placed on a list for contacting for next year. If you are a collector and would like to be notified of this show in the future please send me your contact information via email.

I look forward to hearing back from you all!


So today I was contacted by a local lady who holds a doll and bear show each year here in my town. People drive in from all over to attend this show and although I connected with this lady a year ago but never heard from her... she lost my contact info and I did not have hers. Yesterday she was in our local Staples and someone who works there told her she should contact me. How fun!

So on June 1st I will be at the Belleville doll and bear show and am so thrilled to be a part of this event. With no Canadian bear show in existence any longer this is such and important show.

That is the good news, the bad news is that I don't have time to do the show and do my Rapid Fire shows from now until then so .... Rapid Fire shows are on hold for a short time.

After June 1st I will have another show online.
