we’re moving to the teddy bear republic

That’s it. I’m sick of this snow (4 more inches yesterday), this cold (single digits coming again this weekend), and the never-ending grayness of winter. I’m ready to move almost anywhere but here!

I’m thinking these creatures, who hail from the Teddy Bear Republic, must have it made. Bright colors, furry manes, contented faces – it’s clear they have something good going on over there. I just wish I knew how to get there. Do you think they’d send a map if I asked super duper nicely?

Aren’t they? The combo of textures and patterns make me happy.

These are adorable! I used to make stuffed Matyroshka dolls I should get back on it!

Oh those sounds great – I’d love to find time for more stuffed toy making. It can be such a creative thing.

I sympathise about the cold Mari, hang in there. These softies are so cute, I am sure writing about them cheered you up for a bit, well done for finding them. Hope you don’t mind, I added a link to your box board cut out tutorial ( which is awesome) on my blog yesterday. Love your work!
