2012 TOBY Awards Announced!!!

Wow! I am speechless!! Tonight my good friends Susan Leigh @ Bearleigh Bears and Wendy Walker of ME Bears were congratulating me via Facebook on winning a TOBY Industry Choice Award for Captain Aramis Rex. So, as I hadn't heard anything official from the organisers, I just didn't know where they were getting their 'inside' information from. You can imagine my surprise when Wendy sent me the link to the Teddy Bear & Friends facebook page .... and there was my name in print!!!! W-O-W!!!! Here's an updated photo of my little guy - Captain Aramis Rex - a winner of Category 2: Small Bear - Dressed!!!!
Congratulations also to everyone who won awards, but especially to our Aussie contingent: Wendy for winning with her little marionette creation 'Wish upon a Star', Cindy Cherry of CC Bears Australia for her 'Mischief' and my great friend Linda Down of Lombard Bears for her fantastic 'Willopee'
