Recently I needed a self-portrait for a magazine article but I procrastinated and left it to the last minute. I hate having my picture taken! I would rather just share my bears and I was very tempted to hide behind them.
I moved them around, tried to stack them and yes, talked to them a little; then I took a deep breath, looked up at my beautiful daughter who was photographing me and smiled. She smiled back, told me I looked good and not to worry.
I realized I am so lucky to have such a supportive family who boost me whenever I need it and cheer me on. Lucky to create these little bears that make everyone smile and lucky to have met so many amazing people around the world because of my bears. So thank you to you all! I promise to always push myself to come up with new ideas and to create from the heart. That's what I want in the bears I collect and that's what you'll get in the bears you adopt from me.
Hi, my name is Logan. I’ve decided to appoint myself the mascot for Lanctôt’s Loveables Teddy Bears, and I have given myself permission to write this weeks blog post (The sky is the limit, just like Mom says!). There are all kinds of things happening around here. We are all getting ready to move to a new home in a new town. Right now we live outside of Peace River Alberta, Canada. We are moving to a really pretty place outside of Whitecourt, Alberta. Dad lives there already, and the rest of us are soon to follow. Mom is really excited about the move. Packing is gonna be a mess, but mom is happy to finally have her own studio!!! Right now she does he work partly in her bedroom and partly in her chair in the living room; Boy does she grumble about it… Don’t tell her I said that though, I don’t want to get in trouble!
Mom has been busy making bears for her sites, personalized orders, and online shows. This part she doesn’t complain about, hehe it makes her happy happy happy!! She makes everyone of us with love and let me tell you, we really feel it in the process. She’s always happy when she’s making bears, and she says we can always make her smile. Another thing that makes her smile is getting new fabric and there has been a lot coming in the mail lately! WOW! I am excited to see what little brothers and sisters she’s going to make next, and I hope you are too!
Tomorrow, Friday March 16, 2018 the Teddies Worldwide Online Show starts and I have 8 bears to offer. I've created some new designs in a range of sizes that I am excited to share! You can click on the banner below to get to the show page. Today you can vote on your favourite premier pieces in the show, tomorrow the show will go live and clicking on the bear's picture will take you to the artists' pages.
Every artist has created a Premier Piece specifically for the show. My piece is Flora and her flower throne. She loves flowers and spring is her favourite time but with silk flowers she can have her flower throne all year round. She was a lot of fun to create and she shines in her pretty purple fabric. She is 3" tall when standing and when she sits on her throne she sits 4" high. A pretty addition to any shelf. She will be available tomorrow at the show along with her 7 friends! Don't miss out!
