Hi Everyone,

I just had to tell you all that one of us (a very modest one of us I might add) has an article about her and her adorable bears on the internet at Bears & Buds' webzine. It's our own Danni Whatford and her Delartful Bears!! It's a wonderful piece about Danni with lots of bear pictures!

You really ought to have a peek at it..... http://www.bearsandbuds.com/webzine/Australia-Danni.asp

With less than a year of bear making under her belt she's really on her way!! Great article, Danni! Way to go, girl!!!!

Congratulations and Great Big Bear Hugs!!!

Excellent article; congratulations Danni.  I know you're worked hard, participated lots, and gotten to the bottom of all your questions with hard work and effort.  You deserve every bit of recognition you get for that, and for those darling, darling little cubs of yours.  bear_happy

Big Congratulations on the Bears& Buds writeup! bear_laugh  Very charming bears you make.  I especially like the one with orangey fur and a dark face; it looks rather Aboriginal. bear_cool  Thanks for mentioning your online artist friends, too. bear_original  Hope this attention gets you lots of fame and business.

Oooh you girls are so sweet.  Firstly thanks to Daphne for posting the message!!!!   Very sweet of you!

Thanks to EVERYONE who wrote!!  I must admit I did see most of the photos this morning, but needed to head out the door, so I could only write now.  I'm very pleased with the article, a little embarassed though LOL  It is lovely that you all are so supportive.

Oh okay , here's a photo of me.. *gulp* Only because I was sooo pressured into it.

Hi Danni,
                   I think a big "Well Done " is in order. I must admit it is nice to get some recogniyion for your work. This month I am Artist of the month on Planet Teddy Bear which is part of Teddy Bear Club International ,and I was feeling quite low before someone mailed me to say I was in it.How quickly it cheered me up.  You look so nice and its a great picture. Heres to You Danni.  Cheers.

Hi Shari, Where did you purchase Sumner's lovely Fax Fur then ?? I,m not great with the computer either ,but this is the place to be ,cos you can learn almost anything here. Have a nice week-end.Hugs Rita xxx

Hi Rita:) I work in a fabric store and they bring in a few fat quarters.I just happened here last night and think it's a wonderful place to be.It'll give my husband more to complain about if I spend even more time on the computer.
  My grandfather was born in Scotland,can't tell you exactly where though.


   Blessings,Shari.

Well, Youre half way here already then, what a pity you don't know where he came from. Lots of Scots from the islands went to Canada years ago and I think were among the first settlers there. This group is so addictive ,you may not be able to keep away. Hugs rita xx

Oh Danni, you have the most contagious smile! :D
And there is a HUGE resemblance between you and your bears..... the eyes, the high forehead and I bet when you do get a serious look your expression matches your bears'!! And the ears.... not the size but the placement. You and your bears are just beautiful!

Shari, Welcome! Sumner is wonderful!! We hope you'll share more photos of your creations with us.

You've arrived in the Land of the Hopelessly Crazy.... you name it, we're crazy about it.... Bears, Chocolate, Each Other... Glad you could join us!
