Christmas dinner at "The Bear House"

We had a lovely dinner at the "Bear House" Restaurant in Cranbourne on Tuesday night. Great food, great company...what more could we ask!

We got to see some of the new projects for classes next year, another big year I am sure!

Thank you to everyone who came, and a huge thank you to our wonderful teachers.

Sorry you couldn't make it Carol, we were thinking of you.....

Wishing on a Star......


Our final Saturday with Josey before Christmas saw a mix of painting and sculpting for a change.  A few of us decided to use the pattern of "Wishing on a Star" from Monica in Bear Tales to make some place cards for our Christmas tables.
Michelle was the most sensible making 4, then Kim S. making 8.
I am STILL going after deciding to make 17. What was I thinking!!!!

If I ever get them finished I'll post a pic of them all lined up.

Sculpey is so much fun, I think we might experiment some more next year......

Baby Bertha and Woodstock with Adella

As you can see it has been a very busy time at Bear Essence. Adella has been teaching 3 different classes over the last couple of weeks for Baby Bertha and Woodstock. Some of the girls escaped my camera this time, but I will be sure to get them next time.

We have been very busy lately with the sale and all the classes, which has been keeping me away from the computer.  So, I apologise for the lateness of these past posts.
 Keep an eye out for your email newsletter with next years will be coming over the next couple of days.

Nicholas with Josey...Tuesday night girls

Our Tuesday night girls finished their Nicholas bears and trees with Josey this week. You have to agree they look amazing. You would not believe that 2 of these girls had never made a bear before.... Well done!!!

Maraschino the mini mouse.....

It is hard to believe that this is the very first bear Jessica has ever made!
Maraschino turned out soooo cute. I think we have another enthusiastic bear maker to welcome to our happy bear making family. He is gorgeous Jessica!

Mini Joy is all finished!

 The little tiny Joy is finished and looking amazing!
Julie (from our Friday Bear Circle with Heather) finished her off with a turning music box.

Did you think "Joy" was tiny....?

Look what Julie from Friday "bear circle" has been up to.....
If you thought the original "Joys" were small this little one is tiny!
Only 2.5 inches tall, sooo cute.
