The Best Little Bears in the World

When they say “it runs in the family” or “it’s in your blood”, it certainly is in my family.  Everyone in my family is creative in one way or another and all I can say is we must have inherited it from our MUM.

Our mum has just turned 70 and she is still hard at her craft, which is making the tiniest, cutest bears you have seen especially for the avid miniature bear collector.  She is so good at it and they are so lovely and she just doesn’t realize it.   Even though our mum has won awards, gets praised all the time and no sooner does she finish making one that it’s whipped away to far corners of the Earth.

I hope when I am 70 I can still hold a paintbrush and create as my mum does her bears.  They are crocheted with the tiniest hooks or sewn with the minutest pieces of fabric and needles and she does all that even with her arthritis. She’s like the Maud Lewis of the bear making world.  I hope she gets more acknowledgement for her talent that she deserves.

Love you Mum XXX

I am an artist and I love it. What do I have to do to live from what I love? I'm not dying or cutting me bloody ear off, that's for sure.
