Birthday Wishes

This time of year is filled with birthdays for our family--mine, my  husband's, and my mom's to name a few.  So it seemed like the perfect time to share "Millicent's First Birthday" with all of you!


Millicent is my gallery bear for next week's Teddy Bear Artist Invitational (TBAI) show in Binghamton, New York.  TBAI is such a fun show.  One of the reasons for this is that each year there is a theme which defines all of the gallery bears and the party atmosphere.  This year the theme is "Any Occasion Will Do" and it kicks off with a Sock Hop and Ice Cream Social on Thursday, August 16th.  Just 10 more days!!

If you want to find out more about TBAI go to www.TBAI.org for all of the information.  Don't forget to check out the gallery page so you can see some of the fabulous creations made especially for this event by some amazing bear artists.  Proceeds from the sale of the gallery pieces benefit the Ross Park Zoo in Binghamton which, from what I understand, is the fifth oldest zoo in the United States.  A very good cause!

Heaps of Hugs,
Cheryl
