LINKEDIn I have started linking with fellow artists and bear related business's at a site called LINKEDIn I wasn't sure how well it would work and I knew it would be only as good as the amount of people that would join me. Its a case of 'more the merrier'. I would love to have all the bear related business', artists and collectors all linked. It would make it something fantastic as a reference point online. I know that the very 'Professional' edge this site has will/would scare some bear makers off. But it is this very edge that we need to embrace if we wish to have ourselves seen by the world at large. The bear world has a bad habit of being insular. Staying where its snug and warm. Check out LinkedIn. and then EMAIL me so I can send you an invitation to join us.

The best thing I liked about this is.........it is a 'Favourites' hosted outside my own program.(I lost all my connections just recently) so I will no longer have to worry anymore. PLUS.... you can rate the people you do business with. PLUS.... if you are after something specific, someone LINKEDIn with you will undoubtedly have the business/ artist for you. Come join me!!!!
I enjoy creating my 'Teddy Style platypus'= PUDDLES from a variety of materials.
I love using Sassy mini fabrics and my all time favourite fabric is the Japanese silk. I totally and absolutely adore it. The many pile lengths and its ability to be dyed leaves it self open to my creative flow.
