Franz is up for bid

Franz is up for auction on Bid4Bears this week. He's about 10 inches while sitting; with bent legs, he prefers sitting. He's made from Shulte mohair in a very pretty beige-brown batik.

I'm also happy to say that Molly has been adopted and will soon be on her way to live with her new family in New York.

Rusty on Bid4Bears

Molly will be staying with me a while longer. Unfortunately, her bid did not reach the reserve price.

I have re-listed Rusty on Bid4Bears this week as he did not receive a winning bid when he was listed a few weeks ago.

Isn't it strange that sometimes the ones I like the best aren't snapped up and those that often aren't my favorites are? Most people say that the bear reaches out to them. Maybe Rusty will reach out to someone this week.

Molly is up for auction

Molly is up for auction on Bid4Bears this week. She's 16" tall and 11" while sitting. She's made of a one-inch, curly cream mohair and wears a lace party dress. More pictures are on her auction. I hope you have a minute to take a look.

Willis was adopted and is now on his way to live with his new family in Ohio.

Artist Power is underway

Have you've had a chance to take a look at Bid4Bears? The Artist Power Campaign only started yesterday and there are many bears, hares, lions and other critters available. Some are silly, some are gorgeous, some are traditional. Even if you're not inclined to bid on anything, you should just take a look (no registration necessary) to see what artist bears are all about. Some of the work will blow you away.

This is Willis, my first auction of this campaign, and he's available now.

Artist Power Campaign 2008

Bid4Bear's Artist Power 2008 Campaign starts on March 9th and runs through May 10th. All teddy bear lovers will want to take a look. There are currently 25 teddy bear artists from around the world who have committed to this campaign.

I have personally committed to posting at least one bear each week of the campaign. I have four bears ready to go and I'm working on another.

Registration with Bid4Bears is free and allows you to bid on any of the bears offered.

I hope you'll visit Bid4Bear's Artist Power 2008 Campaign often during the next eight weeks.
