Pop over to the facebook page to see all the available decorations, there are lots of different kinds this year!

Hope you will come say hello!

New bears, and 2 new shows coming up for Little Handfuls

Hi Everyone!
Time for an update, Little Handfuls has had a big couple of months, not all good but as they say, whatever doesn't kill me makes me stronger!
We followed a tough month with a family break away thanks to my inlaws and really enjoyed the beach for a few days.
Now I'm heading into a new show season as I hit Auckland for 2 big shows, one this weekend 18 - 20 Oct and one on 30 November!  I haven't done these ones before so fingers crossed!
I hope to  do another show, this time the Raglan Twilight show just a few days before Christmas, will keep you posted on that one!
For now here are some new bears you won't have seen, they have just been uploaded to facebook which is where most of my work is shown, if you haven't found the page you please do drop by at:

What a great show that was!

2013 Happenings!

Hi Everyone!

I hope that the new year is treating you well so far!  Here at Little Handfuls Headquarters things are definately on the move!  I started a new job at the end of last year which has been keeping me away from my lovely bears, but I am now having to play catch up as I will be joining in again with the online bear show Teddies Worldwide which is available for viewing and purchasing in March!

I need 10 bears for this show and I am a late entry so I don't have much time to get things done!  Suffice to say there won't be a lot of housework getting done over the next couple of weeks! hehe

More news, the little teaser pic above is for my article/instructions being published in the next issue of  Australian Bear Creations Magazine in a few months time!  I spent many hours at the end of last year taking photos and writing up instructions for the 4 page spread so I can't wait to see how it turned out!  I have already been published in the magazines last issue which ran my profile and story which looked great!  You can read this on my facebook page if you would like to!

Because of the upcoming show I am putting my new bears on hold, none will be available until the show opens although there are still bears waiting for new homes in the facebook albums pages.  I have so many orders to get through too!

Again, I hope all of you enjoyed a wonderful Christmas and New Year, I look forward to hearing from you again this year so drop me a line whenever you like!

Mini Bear hugs!
