When to change.........

Sometimes I think about changing my direction of teddy bear making. Not to remove myself from it, but maybe a change of designs and approachability.
 Since my accident, I was not able to keep up with the ongoing struggle to have a teddy available on a regular basis. When you can not keep up, your collectors just move on or loose interest.  My bears involve much attention to detail. I don't know if I have slipped away from this because of the pain and difficulty that I experience while I am making my bear. I do know that I give it my best effort that I have to make my teddies. And now, when I do have a bear available, it just dose not move like they use to. Or it does not move at all. Who knows, maybe it has a lot to do with the state of the economy right now. But I do know that I see some other artists that are still making sales. Mostly because I believe that they have kept on producing their work and doing all that needs to be done to have a successful business.
With that said, today I have been drawing up a new style/design for a teddy bear. It falls along the line of the plush meets doll design. I plan on adding as much detail as I possibly can muster up! Without the struggle and pain I previously would receive.
 I'll try and report back as often as possible on my new way of tackling this situation.
I am looking forward to using my ideas and creating adorable stuffed  fuzzy, furry, gifts for you and your friends <3

Whether you make 1 a year or 100, please don't stop making your teddy bears. You see them all the time but "we" don't and they are refreshing! When I stumbled upon your bears I was so excited as you have a style that I adore. I found you while browsing artist bears on Etsy and I was knocked out by the one's you had for sale, which I ended up buying one that night, and viewing your portfolio link on your website page was great as you are a fantastic bear artist. Keep 'em comin! I know I'll adopt another and maybe another after that and so on. Thanks, G (adopted OOAK Laura)

Texas Trash!

Yeppers, thats what they call it. I call mine "Texas White Trash".

It is a yummy sweet snack mix that consists of white or milk chocolate coated snack mix, cereal, pretzels and pecans and peanuts! It comes in a gift bag with organza ribbon. Can be decorated for special order.

New changes to come

With a new name, I have decided to make my art available here at my blog. Things are really difficult using other sites to sell my work. I'm a creature that makes many different pieces and uses a variety of mediums. I find it boring to stay with one thing and create something over and over again. I have more fun mixing things up and going with what fits my fancy that day. So, on the right side column I will be adding pages for you to choose from. First I am adding some bears I made to be available. If you have any questions or a special request, don't hesitate to contact me. I will be happy to work something out with you. With thanks, Roxanne

Check out the bears on the "Available Bears" page.

Evolution of my open-mouths

I have a couple picture here that shows the evolution of my open-mouth bears.
I began with just a open mouth bear with the ultra-suede tongue.

I now make them with the full pallet.

Or with the ulta-suede tongue, with teeth and gum.
