What a Lovely Surprise

The Teddy Bear Artists and Friends' (TBAAF) Awards were announced this past weekend and I found out that "Johnny Appleseed" won second place in the Novice Bear Artist/Maker category,
and "Jack" won second place in the Felted Bear and Animal Critter category.
Such a nice surprise!  I had forgotten that the TBAAF Awards were coming up.  I actually didn't think I had a chance as there were over 600 entries and some amazing work.  To be honest, I didn't even vote for Johnny or Jack!



  1. Congrats Cheryl, very well deserved. I entered the day I went on holiday and then forgot all about it, including voting or promoting it lol. I'd have voted for your gorgeous boys though.



  2. Cheryl,

    Congratulations!!! Johnny & Jack are WONDERFUL, and you certainly do AMAZING work. We are so excited for you. Thank you for sharing..........

    Prudence & Sissy
    (Mom says "especially me". They are WONDERFUL & very deserving of awards.)
