Picture Day For The Bears

I love each and every one of the bears that I create but I know that they are destined to go to their forever homes and so every time I finish a bear and it has had a photo shoot it goes away into storage to keep it as perfect as possible for its new home.

With each bear boxed up they rarely get to meet each other and I don’t see them together unless my wonderful collectors send me photos of their hugs (which I absolutely love to see).

When I finished Quentin and uploaded photos it was suggested that he looked like Noah’s brother so I wanted to photograph them together.

I think they definitely could be brothers, but they weren’t the only bears that fancied coming out of storage and so all of my bears came out for a photo day!

I had so much fun and I think the bears did too. Some of these bears have been waiting a while for a forever home but I know that when they do get adopted they will be in the best possible condition to travel to their new homes. Sadly they had to go back into storage for now but I am hopeful that it won’t be for too long.

Quentin liked meeting the other bears.

I can’t wait to create more bears and seeing them all together makes me really happy.

If you would like to adopt any of these bears please visit my Folksy shop. https://folksy.com/shops/MobyAndPuddle

We Visited World Of Bears In Taunton

For my birthday I was really lucky that my husband booked us a trip to Taunton with the plan to visit a bear shop that I had not been to before. Mr Webb is a wedding photographer and the month before he had been to Taunton for a wedding and stumbled across the bear shop, he saw a little bear in the window and said that he had to bring it home for me, that bear was Pantaloon by Charlie Bear.

As excited as he was to give me Pantaloon, the most wonderful surprise, he was equally excited to take me and the Webblings to visit the shop. World Of Bears is a bear shop spread over three floors of amazing displays. There are so many bears to see, the ground floor is completely Jellycat and Jellykitten which are adorable and the second floor is mostly more realistic animal plush but the first floor is where my heart almost burst with happiness.

Not only is the first floor a shop but it has some incredibly old bears on display, over 100 years old. They have bears that are tiny and those that are huge, from household names to artist bears and everything in between.

I was fascinated by the tiny bears, they had so much personality and flair, I would love to create some more miniature bears of my own soon.

I found it absolutely impossible to choose just one and since it was my birthday Mr Webb spoilt me rotten and we bought Cinnamon and Jollipops home with us. Of course Lilly and Harrison Webbling had to have a treat too and so we adopted a conker and a bunny to add to their ever growing collections of plush.

We had a fantastic time visiting World Of Bears and we will definitely be visiting again at some point, I have my eye on a few more adoptees!

Thank you for reading, Samantha.

Victor

Victor is only little, he has a lot to learn about the world but he is in no hurry to grow up. Victor is truly happy learning as he goes and taking each step one day at a time. Victor is never lonely because he takes Bear with him wherever he roams, Bear is a little clay bear that has been made from polymer clay, he has had Bear by his side since he was born.

Victor is a really sweet little bear who has found his perfect home x

Maggie

Maggie
Maggie is a very gentle soul that wants to enjoy lazy days and long summer nights, she is the most lazy bear that you will ever meet but she does it in such a
beautiful way that she makes chilling out seem like an art form. Maggie takes the most beautiful pictures of relaxation and knows how to help everyone around her feel more at ease.

Maggie is one of the most photogenic bears that I have ever created, she is so beautifully snuggly that even the camera wants to give her a little cuddle.

Thank you so much for taking a look at Maggie’s profile! You can see all of her adoption information here!

Every Bear Has a Tale To Tell

I really love bears, I love to create them, seeing them come to life from flat pieces of fabric and take on personalities of their own. Every little bear that I create is unique and I never repeat them because they are one of a kind.

Every bear has a little story and a painting too. I love to paint with watercolours and am a full time illustrator. It helps to start their journey to find their forever home and it really is just the beginning.

This blog will be full of bear stories and pictures and I hope that you have fun coming back and seeing all of the stories and bears. Maybe you will find one that is just right to join your family.

Bear Making Schedule!

2019 bears by Samantha Webb

In 2019 I created all of the bears in the picture above. I didn’t get to create as many as I would of liked because I had an accident in June and broke my leg leaving me bed bound for 4 months. My pain killers made it incredibly difficult to thread a needle. Much of my little bear business dropped off because I could not keep up with social media or creating new bears.

To throw myself back into the bear making game, I signed up for The Great Western Teddy Bear Fair in Tiverton. I re-homed two of my bears and met some amazing people who were so positive about my bears that it has given me renewed inspiration to make my little business even better. I have to thank everyone who helped make the day so inspirational.

In 2020 I have decided to be more structured in my business. I will have set days to release my bears, the second and fourth Friday of every month will be BEAR DAY! With plenty of sneak peeks in the days in between. I am hoping that you will be excited to see the bears on bear days and that I can make even better bears because I have set days to work towards.

If you have any questions please do ask,

Love Samantha x
