We have to do this part don't we! My name is Debora Evans. I am a divorced mother of two wonderful grown children and two beautiful grandchildren. A native Floridian. My mother taught me how to use a sewing machine at the age of seven and I consider it an extention of my body.LOL! You can ask my family, during the occaisional evacuation for hurricanes through the years, my sewing machine, patterns and fabrics rated right up there with my children and pets. I currently live with one dog and one cat and enough fabric, trims and notions to open my own store. I am primarly a bear artist but I also love making dolls,folk art make-do's,whimsical critters, and my newest find, altered-art!(Who can resist something with no rules!) There is always something new to feed the artist within me and I want to try it all!

I have been making fairies as of late!LOL! My local doll group decided to make some fimo fairies with the use of molds. My hats off to you artist that make these little creations from scratch! It took me hours and hours just to smooth mine out after removing from the mold! Sculpting with clay is not one of my talents!LOL! It was so frustrating! I decided to design a fairy bear instead! Much more in my comfort zone! The wings are my favorite part! Here are my fairies! My fairy bear is listed on Ebay!
I spent several days last week stripping , sanding and refinishing this large wooden bowl that was a 50 cent garage sale find. I thought it would be great to hold my hand made pumpkins and squash I like to display during the holidays, but it seems Toby thinks its existance is for another purpose! As you can see my rule about no cats on the table is still going right over his head!LOL!
I promised myself I would post everyday in here but I seem to run out of time on a regular basis! I have actually been productive lately! Here are some pictures of my latest creations. Sunshine (Yellow bear) is currently up on Ebay. Littlebit(1.5"), Flutterfly bear, and Chloe will be on ebay later tonight! I am almost finished with my first fairy bear, will get pictures posted soon!
Hello Blogland! Its the first of the month again and there are lots of new items listed on the BTAE website! Please click on the link to the left to check out all the awesome creations! My offering this month is a sweet attic bear that I made using a pattern by SweatMeadowsFarm and her sweet babies made with a pattern by Bowls-n-Annies. I used a very vintage wool coat to make my bear and dressed her in a sweet antique baby dress. This set is going to be very hard for me to part with. Hope you will drop by the website and sign up for our email list!
