Honors for Bingle Bears

This is what you might call my "Brag Page"--I'm not always very good at tooting my own horn, but I'm going to give it a shot!

First off, I never, ever, ever expected to have a bear grace the cover of a magazine, but now I know that dreams do come true! 

Here's Thaddeus on the front of  the February/March 2014 Teddy Bear Times, a wonderful magazine from the UK devoted to everything teddy bear. 

There's also a 4-page article in this issue devoted to me and my bears.  Unbelievable! 

Click on the photos below to better see the pages of the article about me and my bears.






I am over the moon!  I can't believe how fortunate I am to have won yet another award!  Amelia has won a 2014 Excellence in Bear Artistry Judge's Choice Award.  I am one very blessed and fortunate gal! 

Voting is taking place right now until October 31st, 2014.  Click on Amelia's photo if you would like to be part of this international voting phenomenon!  Or go directly to http://www.bearartistry.com/entries.


As for awards, I am thrilled that I won a 2012 TOBY Industry Choice Award for Evangeline and a 2011 TOBY Industry Choice Award for Livvy.  I also have the honor of saying that I have won a Judges Choice AND a People's Choice in the 2012 Excellence in Bear Artistry Awards for Thaddeus and a Judges Choice in the 2013 Excellence in Bear Artistry Awards for Isadora.  Here's a peek at the award winners.




Teddy Bear Review magazine published an article solely about me and my bears called "Bear Therapy" in the August 2011 issue.  I'm SO honored!  Click on the photos below to be able to read each page of the full 6-page article.

I was also thrilled that the Fall 2011 issue of Teddy Bear and Friends magazine included me as one of 9 up-and-coming artists in their article title "New Kids on the Block."  I wish I had photos I could show you, but, alas, I do not.  My Bingle Bears have graced the pages of many more magazines--I am so fortunate that they have been so well received.
