Hello Takeko...I am new too...I live in the UK and have been making bears for 3 years. My bears and I went to Japan last year and loved it...I am going again next year.
Hi, Shana!! ALOHA!
Thank you for your message sent from tropical area, Hawaii !!
I have been to Hawaii for 2 times, it was so confortable and beautiful.
my abatar polar bear is wearing swiming costume with ancor embroidery on his chest.
And he has yellow tube because not good at swimming...
This summer I didn't qo swiming yet. I want to go!
What Island did you go to? I live on the Island called Kaua'i. Its very green and slow going here. We spent alot of time of the beach because my 3 boys and my husband love to surf. I sit out in the sun and read my Teddy Magazines...hahaha.
Aloha and Mahalo,
Oh,You live in UK. I love to visit UK, too.
Actually my wedding celemony was in London!!
Did you and your bear visit to JAPAN for some Teddybear convention?
Warmest welcome Takeko !:)
Yes , we went to Nagoya in October for the British Fair ...there were only a couple of other bear-artists there...but there were painters , potters, weavers , bakers, ceramic artists ....all things British...and they played the bag-pipes throughout the day which we thought was hilarious !! We had a great time and we are going back...fingers-crossed next year.
We could have gone this year but I have just become a grand-mother for the first time in May...and my son and his wife are expecting their first baby in November too..so I want to be at home right now. I am excited about going back though!!
Belated welcome, Takeko!
Beautiful bears--your niece is very lucky!
Hi Takeko...How nice to have you join our group! A BIG HEARTY WELCOME.
Your bear is just adorable and I am sure your niece is enjoying her. What a wonderful heirloom you have given her...a treasure forever!
A big warm welcome!
(So sorry for reply becomes late...)
It sounds so gorgeous and lovely that your grandbaby was born !!
It's irresistible, isn't it?
I hope you can meet each other very soon !!
So are you making first gift bear to baby?
It will be so wonderful gift through baby's life!!!
Bear Hugs, Takeko

Hello from England Takeko! Teddy Talk makes the world a smaller place!:D
Hi from Germany! I´m new and I like your avatar bear very much
Welcome! I'm a new member too but I'm having lots of fun connecting with artists who have great ideas. Your bears are really well done. Keep up the good work!
I have a few of my bears that are living in Japan. And I even had one of my bears featured in a Teddy Bear book that was written in Japanese...it was pretty funny when I got a copy in the mail since I had no idea what it said..fortunately I had a friend who could translate for me.
Looking forward to seeing more of your bears.
