Hi all - I am home from the San Diego show -- it was a blast! There were lots of great teddies and dolls, many enthusiastic collectors and lots of fun. I was honored to receive a 2012 Industry Choice Award for my Father Christmas. You can see a list of winners on the Teddy Bear and Friends facebook page under "notes" Watch for the voting for The People's Choice TOBY in Teddy Bear and Friends.

- I am a teddy bear artist by profession. I also play rhythm guitar with a local bluegrass band on weekends that I am not off to teddy bear shows. I have a very funny papillon named PJ. He is 10 years old and he keeps me mobile by making me take him walking every day. I love antiquing and use many of my finds for my teddy bears. I am just starting to do mixed media artwork and collage. You can find some of my things my website:www.marthasbears.com
