Teddy Bear and Friends, Free Giveaways and Updates Galore

Hello Everyone:

Just a quick note to say that things are heatin' up here at Seraphim Studios. With only a mere 3 months till the Teddy Bears on Vacation show I am starting to do the final touches on the new hug of bears that will be attending the show with me. I also started three new ones last night, and a few have a friend and come as a set. I also have a new little friend to offer you all that is a bear bud and a nice pocket size to fit in your quilted tea cups.... did I say quilted tea cup! If you saw the Alice set of bears you will have seen the new quilted tea cups and I will also be offering those at the coming show!

There are bags and certificates to make, table layouts to plan, stuffing tags to tack onto each bear, ATC's to be made and little final checks to be done but all in all it is going well. I think the show is going to be a great experience and I feel ready. I have counted yesterday and once the bears that I have just started are completed I will have 23 bears ready for the November show. I also hope to have enough bears to offer a small online Christmas show for all my online followers.... how very exciting indeed!

I also have some more good news: We got pulblished in the "Most Wanted" section of the Fall 2010 edition of Teddy Bear and Friends magazine! You have seen these two bears here before and Dot has already been adopted but Stevie will attend the show this holiday season.

So I really thought I would post some photos of the new hug but I think I will not and will keep them as a surprise for you all this coming season.

I will however let you know that I will be participating in a FREE giveaway of one of my bears through Bears and Buds magazine online starting in September and ending October 31st - Halloween ooooooooo! I LOVE the little bear that will be up for your FREE adoption and hope you will also. I will post all the links when the time comes.

Heres a hint: The giveaway bear is based on the touching and fabulous award winning film "UP".

Have a wonderful day and I will be back soon!

  4. I just got TB&F and was excited to see your bear and bunny. I thought, hey, I know her! :o) Congrats! And it sounds like you're going to be very prepared for your show. What fun--you'll have to share all about it.

    Bear hugs to you,

  5. Hi Michele
    You must be so excited to be published! I have to wait another month before the magazine gets out here in Australia!
    Have you read my latest blog on hoarding bear supplies!?

  6. Thank you everyone for your lovely comments. I am truly enjoying my busy schedule and only find the holding back and not sharing to be the hardest part. I will continue to work or should I say play with the bears and soooooo cannot wait to share them all with you! Have a wonderful day!

  7. CONGRATULATIONS! Well deserved! And they look fabulous in print--I was so tickled to see them when I received my copy of TB&F.
