Hi Karen: As you know I am a HUGE fan of your work. They never fail to bring a smile to my face and each one is impossibly special. The machine stitched artwork on Etsy is yet another example of your creative genius. I love the finishing touches you have put on each one and look forward to seeing more of these from you with increasing levels of complexity. Your work is one of very few examples that I routinely get emails on from other collectors asking me if I am ready to part with any of my pieces... :-)

My new email address is and I would love to win this pin (BIG grin)

Hi, I just found your bear "Claire" on ebay she is beautiful. I will be keeping a eye on her and adding your seller to my saved sellers list. Thanks for creating such wonderful bears, I love the old fashioned stitching on the front of the dress. Helen.

Dear Karen,
I love your bears so dearly. I am so blessed to have 3 in my collection and look forward to seeing the new ones that you create. I would love to be a part of the giveaway and hope I am the lucky one to adopt this precious little bear pin. Her dress is especially adorable. Keep the treasures coming.
Warm regards, Susan

Absolutely and madly in looooove with your bears. Thanks to you, I have my very first bear and I can't believe that I finally have one. I had to pinch myself real hard....ouch! I hope to be a Bear Mom to more of your bears.

You are indeed blessed with a God-given talent. Can I be your adopted chid to inherit your bears...please? By the way, I am 52 - not too old to be adopted, I hope.
