My "Judges Choice" awards came in the mail, yesterday, and I am so thrilled with them.  The glass crystal awards are absolutely gorgeous, with all the information from the competition, etched onto them.  Susan, at Bear Basics in Britain has outdone herself.  This competition is 1st class - the judges were excellent, the judging criteria was well set and I love that everyone who entered gets to know how they measured up in the standings. I can't say enough about how fast Susan responded to questions and any difficulties that arose while sending in the entries. She also allowed me to add the Teddy Bear magazine to my parcel, so I would have a copy with all the entries displayed, because it's not available in North America.  So, if any of you bear artists have thought about entering a competition, this is one that you should try.  Oh, and don't forget the finalists have moved on to the People's Choice voting and you can vote online here.  There are lots to choose from so support your favourites - voting is open until October 15th.  :o)
