Feeling unwell today... but the arrival of an early christmas gift makes me feel better

Today is a bad bad day... I seldom fall sick but today it's my turn :( I have stomach flu and diarrhea, this is really a bad combination. I couldn't go to work hence i have been resting at home after visiting a clinic.

I have tried drawing a new design and cutting some patterns, but my body couldn't let me do so... :(
Just when i m feeling the worst that could have happened to me, a gift arrived at my door step.

In my few posts below, I had mentioned that I have adopted a bear during the Teddies Worldwide Show, she has arrived my house this afternoon. In fact, she has reached my house last saturday, but my brother who thought that the postman is a stranger knocking at our door, he refuses to open the door... i m angry over this and we have a quarrel. LOL...

Anyway, today I am going to reveal my Special Xmas Gift, that i have saved for a long long time to get her =)

Introducing Woodruff! A cute little bear made by Joanne Livingston of Desertmountainbear.
Joanne's works have always inspire me, even before I become a bear artist one year ago. Remembering the first time that I saw her works on the internet, my jaws dropped, her creations have never failed to amaze me, they seems to connect with me and telling me that one day i m going to own one of her bear. If you have time, pop by her blog to see the rest of her wonderful creations =)

Woodruff & Peaches

I am going to get some more rest today, hoping that I will feel better tomorrow to keep moving! ~ Ciao =)

A pair of custom bunnies for my friend's wedding =)

Here's a pair of bunnies that I have been working on for the past few weeks. I have spent my time slowly working on them, drawing a new design and carefully trimmed the fur for the sweetest facial expression.

I have been requested to make this pair of bunnies since July.... however due to my committments for the Singapore Bear Show and Teddies Worldwide Show, the making has been delayed. Oh dear... but luckly I can still manage to find some time to complete them before her wedding which will fall on next year 1st Jan 2010.

Simpson & Jean
 These pair of bunnies both have cotter-pin joints on their head, I am sure they will look great on their wedding car. More pictures of them with the Groom & Bride will be posted here next year =)

Aloysius & his new home

Guess what! Today I received 2 photographs of Aloysius.
Aloysius is my first give-away bear and Darcy is the lucky winner.

I am glad that Aloysius has found a good home and a great helper to Darcy with the Halloween Decorations.

 Look! He is so greedy, he wants all the candies for himself! You should stop overeating... 
I think you need a healthy diet. Darcy, please watch his diet :)

What are u holding? Skulls? Don't tell me you are eating that! Eeek! LOL

I just finish my website for the Teddies Worldwide last night and complete making a custom Wayneston Baby. Photos of her will be ready next week.

I wish everyone a wonderful day at work!
