*:: Summer ::*


You've probably heard Melbourne is a city with four seasons but Summer is definitely here and we're getting some serious hot summer days. Today is one of them, currently at 37 degrees. Thankfully the JLB studio is well insulated and my bears are not shedding their fur!

After all the eating, partying then lazing around, I finally got myself together and completed another little girl. Please meet my new girly bear "Summer"! She's just a little sad not being able to go outside to play with her little friends due to the scorching heat but she's mightly glad to be keeping cool inside...and I did promise her ice-cream to keep her happy! :D

Summer is now looking for a new home and for more photos and adoption details, please visit my website or click here. Now I can relax a bit and get ready for NYE!!! Have a safe and Happy New Year Everyone!!! :D

*:: as cute as a Button::*


Summer has finally arrived in Melbourne and she arrived with a vengeance!! We've been having 30+ degrees weather and today 34 but I'm soooooooo loving it, especially after the long stretched of cold weather we've had. Making most of the warm weather, (because you never know how long it will last as Melbourne is best known for it's four seasons in one day) I've been taking time out and basking in the sunshine but I haven't forgotten about my bears...
Please meet my new little anime bear "Button". Button is now available for adoption from my website and if you like to make your own "Button", he is created from my sugar anime pattern :D

*:: Natsumi ::*


This little girl reminds me so much of a "Natsumi" and with the 30 degree days we had over the weekend, I thought this name was very fitting for her. Despite the heat, she refused to remove her teddy bear hat...she's very attached to her hat you see, just like my Walter who thinks he's a little human trapped in a puppy's body, Natsumi thinks she's a little girl, 'pretending' to be a bear!! hehe...

Natsumi is now available for adoption and will keep herself very busy waiting for her new mommy. If you like to know more about Natsumi and see more photos of her and her hat, please click here.

*:: Yukimi ~ my little petal in the snow ::*


You've probably noticed why it's taking me much longer to create a new bear each week and I have no excuse except to say that it's all Facebook's fault! It's all those games and boy am I addicted!! LOL Thank you for playing with me and I am having a ball though I must admit, it's taking over my life and time to a HUGE extend and I really must try hard to be a bit more "balance" from now on.

I've almost forgotten the wonderful buzz I get when I finish a bear so here I like to present to you my latest bear "Yukimi"...she's like a little petal in the snow. Yukimi is now looking for a new home and is available for adoption from here.
Happy Friday everyone!!

HAPPY 6TH BIRTHDAY!


It's jennylovesbenny's Birthday and is 6y.o this month!! It seemed like only yesterday when I made my first bear and as I look back the years, I feel like a mum watching my little children grow and blossom. It's been another wonderful year and many bears have found new homes in far and wide locations. Many exciting places I'll love to be able to get the chance to visit one day.

"Corn" here is my sample bear, created from my first attempt at designing my own bear. I was very pleased with how he turned out and being my first, he's very special to me. He's still by my side, each day, keeping me and other bears in great company. Below is "Joshua", my very first bear to be created from my "Corn" pattern. "Joshua" was adopted by a lovely lady from Lincoln in the UK...hmmm...I wonder how he's doing now.

I often wonder whether I'm passing my bear's new home when I drive through a town where I know my bears have gone to live. Hoping that I might get a glimpse of them sitting by a window watching the world go by...



I'll like to THANK YOU for your support and for taking the time to send me lovely emails. It's always a delight to receive them and knowing my bears have made you smile! :D

To celebrate jennylovesbenny's 6th Birthday, I'll like to offer a blog giveaway. The winner will receive a softcover copy of my new Birthday Book together with a hard copy pattern of their choice.

How to Enter? Anyone who leaves a comment on this post during the next 7 days is automatically entered in the draw, starting with this post and ending Tuesday the 3rd of November.

Please leave one comment and tell me which is your favourite jlb bear from my adopted bears gallery page or from my patterns and also what pattern you would like to receive as the winner.

I will be using randome.org to generate a number to pick the winner. The winner will be revealed later that day. Good Luck and Thank you again!!! :D
