New mini treasures and my first bear of the year!

Today I would like to share a couple of things with all of you!  First are my new little treasures that I purchased.  :o)  These little cats are made by the very talented Linda Fisher.  I won the little grey kitten on E-bay and I just fell in love with it, so I contacted Linda and had the orange cat, "Crookshanks" commissioned.  He is so perfect, I love him!  He has glow in the dark eyes and a poseable tail.  He is destined for my Harry Potter pet shop that I am building :o) 
If you would like to visit Linda's auctions and add one of her pieces of art to your collection just click here.  I can't say enough wonderful things about her animals!  I am hoping to add many more to my mini scenes!

Next I would like to share my very first bear of 2011!  Her name is "Fern".  I am really wishing for spring lately, so I just had to make a spring-like bear! 
If you would like more information about Fern you can visit my website where I currently have her listed.  I hope you like her!

I have been working on my goodies for the swap the past few days!  How are the rest of you doing?  Has everyone been in contact with their partners?  If you are having trouble getting in touch with each other, or if you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to e-mail me! 
 I hope you are all having fun with your mini making!

Have a great week!

I feel so lucky!

Look what I got :o)  I was so happy last month to learn that I won the beautiful giveaway prize from After Dark Miniatures!!  I picked it up at the post office a couple of days ago and it was like Christmas all over again!  I feel so lucky to have this wonderful piece of work in my collection!  
Thank you again Eve!  
Please visit her wonderful blog to see her amazing work!

New minis in my Etsy shop!

I hope you all had a wonderful week!  I have been thinking a lot about new year's resolutions and goals for 2011,  I'm sure a lot of you have also!  Part of my resolution/goal is to make more minis available in my Etsy shop this year.  I have done just that this morning!  I added three plants that I have been working on over the past couple of weeks.  I hope you like them!!  I am going to try and find a balance between making bears and making minis (another part of my resolution). 
I would love to hear what you think!  Or if there is anything special you would like to see, either miniature or bear related!

Have a wonderful weekend!
