Wonderful Dinner with Bear Friend, Esther

2 days ago, I have a meet up with my friend, Esther who is also a bear artist in Singapore. As usual, we bought along few of our newer bears which we have adopted and made recently.

We had Japanese Sushi for dinner and later went to a spacious place for tea and coffee. It's a pity that one of our friends couldn't come to join us.


Esther showed me 3 bears which she has adopted recently. The gold coloured bear is made by Janice Woodard, cute little puppy made by Leny van der Eijk and the vintage red bear made by Natalja Fjodorova. Esther also bought the little bear which is her latest creation.

I bought along 3 bears from my collection, the bunny which I have swapped recently with Janice Woodard, an adorable little mouse made by Lori Ann and Jovial the panda which I have made.

It was once again another fun meet up which we chatted about our bear collection and bear making techniques. We are looking forward to our next meet up soon!

A Youtube Video Review of my dragon made by a Collector

I got a surprise from a bear collector this morning. Her name is Sara, she did a youtube video on my dragon (Garnie Smith) expressing how much she loves him. Her husband bought Garnie Smith last year to surprise her.

I am so touched for the first time in my bear making journey and tears almost roll down from my eyes. I am sharing her video here. I want to thank Sara for making my day extra special. ♥

My Birthday Swap

My early Birthday Wish....

I am hoping that someone could do a swap with me for my birthday again this year, my birthday falls in April and the swap should be ready by end of March or early April. Last year I had 4 swaps and this makes me very happy.

I know it's kinda rush asking for a swap since now is mid of February, I am currently busy with my website design too and I have hardly enough time to create new bears. Therefore, I am proposing to reduce the number of swaps to just ONE or TWO for my birthday this year.

If you are a Doll or Bear Artist that is interested to have a swap with me, kindly send me an email so that we can discuss further about the swap. Please send an email to: waynestonbears@yahoo.com.sg , subject title - Birthday Swap. I will reply all your emails by 20 February to inform you if you are in my swap list.

Thank you for reading my blog posts and I love you all.

Have a blessed new year =)
Hugs, Wayne

First Creation for 2013 ~ Panda Jovial

I have decided to KIV my new website (it's taking too much time...>.<) So... here's my first creation for 2013!!! Yeah!

I took a new challenge this time to create a even smaller Open/Close Mouth Panda named Jovial. He is just 7 inch tall! His mouth has wire armature which allows him to open and close completely, I am very pleased with him.

What's more, I applied a new self-taught technique - leather eye lids on Jovial. It's very time consuming, each individual lid takes me approximately 15-20 mins and in total, I have to spend close to 2 hours to make both upper and lower lids for both eyes. I am very satisfied with the effects, thus I don't really mind spending time to prefect it.

Making Jovial really makes me happy. It's funny how the happy object created from you becomes an object which makes you happy by looking at it.

My sister is giving Jovial a pat on his head

Jovial is now available for adoption on Bear Pile: http://www.bearpile.com/item/64646

The Lunar New Year is just one week away! I am so excited and looking forward to the long holidays!

Wishing everyone a Happy and Prosperous Year of the Snake!

Hugs, Wayne
