About Me

My photo
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

stuff to sell and stuff to keep

I am going through everything I own to sort out stuff to keep and stuff to sell.  WHAT A MESS!!!

Life is kind of overwhelming at the moment and I find that a good purge helps clear my head.  I hope that it will be cold and cloudy so that I don't want to go outside and play instead. 

I will be posting things on etsy, but will have pics here before I do to give you a feel for what I have to get rid of.

I have also committed to do a talk at the Kansas City Jubilee bear show in Sept - the topic: "What are you going to do with that?"

So I may be keeping more than I originally hoped just for that talk.
