I have just received a phone call from the lovely Mindy Kinsey, telling me I have won three TOBYs!!!!  bear_laugh  I had already heard from a couple of people who were at the TOBY awards, but didn't want to say anything until I had heard 'officially'.  I cannot begin to tell you how excited I am to have won all three categories I was nominated in!!  I'm sure you can imagine there was a lot of screaming and jumping around when I first found out!!! LOL

Congratulations to all the other winners, and to everyone who was nominated!! :hug:

Here are the picture of my three winners:

'Laura-Kate', in the Undressed Miniature Bear category

'John' (named after my Dad, who loves gardening!!), in the Dressed Miniature Bear category

'Sleigh Ride', in the Artist Vignette category
