Cyber Monday Specials

I don't usually offer any after Thanksgiving sales, as I am out of town with little access to the internet.  But, today is Cyber Monday, so I thought I would offer two Christmas items at a special price.

These two items are available from now through midnight December 1st at 20% off the listed price with the coupon code "monday".

Red Christmas Angel Bear

Gotta Talk about Christmas! (Please don't groan...)

Hello readers.  I almost hate to say it, but Christmas truly is not far away, especially for those of us who make and sell Christmas gifts and decor.  Ordering early is the key to keeping all of us happy, so I must bring up the subject early as well.  I have been updating a few pages of Christmas gifts and wanted to share those updates with you.

Holiday Sweater Bear

First is the Holiday Sweater Bear page.  Many of the sweater designs have changed since I posted the picture of the bear and sweaters, so I added a separate page where I could easily update the sweaters as necessary.  Sometimes the designs change every year.

You can see all of the current holiday sweaters hereI have also added a Thanksgiving sweater to the choices.  It's a beauty.

Mr. Snow Bear

Secondly is the Mr. Snow Bear.  I thought I was being very clever a few years ago when I started making the Snowman Bears using the white bears that I could buy in 4 sizes.  Fun, right?  Until my supplier stopped carrying the white bears.  Once I run out of them, I cannot replenish my supplies.  This size of white bear, about 12" tall, was a popular one and it didn't take long to run out of them.  So, now the Mr. Snow Bear is made using a beige bear.  I have updated the pictures on the page to reflect the current design.
I also updated the cut off date for Christmas orders on the Christmas Teddy Bears page.  Currently, the cut off date is December 12th.

Hanukkah Bear

And, just in case you did not know, I also have a Hanukkah Bear.  I have only one sweater that is shown in the picture, so if you need one, please order soon. I do not know if I will be able to get any more sweaters just like this pretty one.

Hocus Pocus, I've got a New Focus for 2015!

It's a new year and I've decided it's time for a new tag line for my business.  For many years, I have used the phrase, "Teddy Bear Gifts, The Lasting Alternative to Flowers", or some variation of that.  That phrase is still true, teddy bears still last longer than flowers.  So why change?  What happened?

Teddy Bear Shelf
I took this picture and it inspired me to coin this phrase - "Teddy Bear Collections, not for kids, but for the kid in all of us."  You see, this picture of teddy bears is not in a child's room, but is in my office.  Yes, my office, where I dress the teddy bears and personalize the uniforms and the wedding hearts, and where I dream of all of the many, many ways a teddy bear could be dressed.

The collection of  bears on the shelf represent a variety of themes, obtained in a variety of ways, and are only one shelf full of teddy bears in my office.  (Did you notice the teddy bear wall paper border in the background??)  I guess you could say there is a teddy bear loving kid inside me.  It's been there a long time.  Let's not forget, my maiden name was "Bear".  Yes, I have been at this (teddy) bear thing for a very looooong time.

So what about you?  Do you want to add something to your teddy bear collection?  I've got a bunch on my website: Click Here  What about a Valentine' Day Gift?  Oodles of teddy bears in pink and red, they will turn your head.  Teddy bears in red and pink will make you think.

Okay, too many rhymes!!! See you next time......
