I'm just thrilled to pieces that I won a "2012 Excellence in Bear Artistry Award" for Thaddeus!!
This is a very prestigious award as the winners are chosen by four amazing bear artists from around the world.
I'll be honest and say that I only entered one category because I didn't think I had much chance of winning. However, what is new and interesting about this competition is that the artist receives a critique of each bear entered. THAT is why I entered! I wanted the critique. But now I have won as well and will be soon receiving a gorgeous crystal trophy! Unbelievable!!
