The Teddy Bear Times Magazine...



You may remember, just before I took a short break I mentioned that I might have some exiting news.
Well now I know that it's definite, I can finally share it with all of you :0)

'The Teddy Bear Times' magazine are doing a feature on my Vintage Teddy Bear paintings in their September edition!
It will be on sale on the 20th of September and I am truly honoured!

To be honest, I'm really not sure how big or small the article will be. There where about 25 questions in the interview and you all know of my tendency to waffle, so I imagine they will condense it down hugely - but I am exited to see my work in such a beautiful magazine :0)

The advert that I showed all of you a couple of posts back is going to be in the next issue, which is released on the 19th of July. I was exited just about that, let alone an actual editorial, lol!

Anyway, that exiting news aside - and ignoring the fact that it has rained again relentlessly all day today - yesterday was DRY!!! Yes, I said DRY. Yay!!
And between the threatening, Phthalo Blue clouds, were bursts of beautiful warm sunshine!

So, what could be more inspiring than a little ray of sunshine other than to add some new colours to my collection?




This is like candy to me!

Wrestling the odd Alligator along the way, I squelched my way across the swamp, which was once our garden, down to my Art Studio - and as I pulled each bright new colour from the brown paper bag it felt like another ray of sunshine!
I suppose you could call it 'colour therapy'!

It's funny - I really don't like clothes shopping. I'm a scanner - if nothing throws itself at me from the hanger and shouts 'BUY ME', I'm gone in under a minute - but try getting me out of an Art Shop! My husband finds it very difficult, lol ;0)

Anyway, just before I go, I just want to warmly welcome my new followers! It really does mean so much that you like what you see. Thank you so much!!

  2. Je vous félicite chaleureusement pour votre prochaine publication dans le magazine que vous mentionnez.
    Je pense être comme vous ! Je n'arrive jamais à me décider pour l'achat d'un vêtement... En revanche j'achèterais le fond du magasin de couleurs!

    Gros bisous à vous.

    1. Merci Martine yo so much! Nous sommes clairement les grands! Je trouve magasiner pour des vêtements tout à fait ennuyeux, mais je suis comme un enfant quand je vais dans un magasin d'art

  3. Fabulous news, Sandra - and well deserved too! I'm pretty much the same in art shops. It's a bit of a Mr Benn experience for me - I disappear into a different world for hours :)

  7. Sandra, that is wonderful news! Congradulations!!! I understand your "kid in a candy store" attitude about art stores. I'm the same way, but also with tack shops [where I have to feel and smell the leathers!] and hardware stores [they're fascinating]

    1. Thank you Kathryn! Shopping on line just isn't the same is it? But on the other hand, I do get extremely excited when a parcel arrives in the post from an Art Store too. It feels like Christmas :0)
