Hi Takeko,
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,

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 I want to be at home right now. I am excited about going back though!!

Hi Takeko

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 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.
