EXCELLENCE IN BEAR ARTISTRY AWARDS 2012

Yippee! Two of my bears have won Judges Choice awards in their respective categories in the new Excellence in Bear Artistry Awards 2012.  I am so excited.  I've known for over a week and couldn't say anything until the official announcement was made on their website and that was so hard LOL!  There was some confusion which has now been clarified - the 3 chosen pieces to move forward in each category are all Judges Choice 'winners' and will receive lovely crystal awards :o). My two pieces are both in the minature categories - one for dressed and one for undressed.  They move on to voting online for the People's Choice part of the competition.  Voting is September 1st - October 15th and you can vote online by clicking here.  It's my pleasure to introduce my two bears :o)
