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

baking bears

Well, my poor husband comes home today and walks into the kitchen saying "mmmmmm, something smells great.  What are you baking?"
He should know better by now.
He pulled the oven open and found
3 antiqued, distressed, dipped bears baking in the oven to give them that "dirty" look.  My Prim recipe is coffee, vanilla, nutmeg and cinnamon - so it smells great.
