Today my last bear of this year was "born": bearkidz mini #8, a cute little girl crocheted from gorgeous yellow eyelash yarn. I still need to take pictures and will post them as soon as I get a chance which will be in the new year 2010! HAPPY NEW YEAR!

I hope everybody had a peaceful Christmas, I surely did. It was a wonderful and quiet time I could spend with my family. One more day and a new exciting year will begin. I am looking forward to going to Florida in January where I will attend the Naples doll show. Since I am a doll collector besides making and collecting bears, this show is for years now my favourite on my schedule.

Another beautiful day, sunshine and cooler temperatures. I am working on another bearkidz mini. It will be mini number eight and I might start giving them names instead of just numbers. Several people asked me to name them.

Today we have another cold and rainy day. The weatherman said there might be a chance for some wet snow, however it rained all day. I really wouldn't mind if we had at least a little white dusting for Christmas, even if it was just for one day!

I would like to introduce you to bearkidz® mini #7.
This funny little bear is one of a kind and crocheted from an eyelash yarnin a beautiful turquoise shade. It sits 5 inches tall and will be available through my website.

Before sending out bearkidz® mini #6 to his new mommy I took a picture of the siblings.

Bearkidz mini #6 is almost ready to be introduced to the bear world! I crocheted him/her from a beautiful yellow eyelash yarn. I used a cream colored cotton yarn for the paws and off white felting wool for the face.

In this Christmas card my bear Christopher was the star! This picture was also in the Teddybear magazines.

This is another card I made, featuring one of my bearkidz babies. This one is Rascal who is one of my favourite bears and still lives with me.

I thought to share some bearkidz Christmas cards I had designed and sent out in previous years. I will add more during the next couple of days and hope you will enjoy them.
It is a rainy day and I am working on bearkidz mini #6.

The response to this new series is very positive. At this point I have planned to limit the series to a number of 10 bearkidz minis. These minis are all one of a kind, each with it's distinctive own personality.

All the minis that I have made so far have each found a new family to live with.

Mini #6, a yellow one with pudgy cheeks, will be finished this week and go on ebay by the end of this week.
