It's bunny time....

This weekend I worked on this bunny girl.

She turned out soooo cute that I couldn't wait until she has all her clothes

to show some pictures of her.

She is sooo soft and cuddly and full of soft wool.

 

Look at that face!!!!!

Can you tell I'm in love?

Right now she is spending a lot of time with me and I will have to put some thought into if I want to keep her or let her go to a new home...

 
Hmmm.......We'll see

My latest creations



Just finished this puppy blanky.
With all the bunnies lately it was time for a puppy again.  :)
You can find this one in my Etsy shop



This lamb was a custom order I also just finished. 
With Easter around the corner I think some more lambs are coming my way. 


These logs,tree stump and leaves are also a custom order for the family that got the group of mushrooms lately.
Can you imagine how much fun it would be to get your imagination going when you play with these forest toys?

Custom Mushrooms



I don't think I have shown you this bunch of mushrooms I made for a customer. They range in size from about 5 to 10 inches (about 13-26 cm)
all have heavy bottoms and can stand alone. I make them with and without the heavy bottom.It's not fall anymore I know, but to me there's no season for mushrooms. I just love these mushrooms all year round.Especially dotted mushrooms!Have you seen the other kind I make?Different colors and shapes and sizes 


I also make other nature items like these...


First creation....

How excited are you about a new year?
I'm very excited I have to say. 
You get a fresh start and a whole lot of "first's, right?
I don't make New Year resolutions, but rethink what worked for me last year and what could use some change and I go from there.
So this year I want to get better organized with my time as I have a lot more on my plate
and it felt like I was chasing my own tail for most of the time .
Keeping track of everything was a problem too. 
I believe I have a bit of ADD as well and get overwhelmed when I have too much in my head and then 
everything comes to a halt because I don't know what to do first.
More about that in a later post, when my new customized planner arrives.  :)
For now it's easy to keep track and here you see one of my first customs of 2014.

The good thing about the start of the year for me is that the busy time at my day job is over and things calm down and I have any or just a few custom orders lined up.
This here is one of them.
An owl for a soon to be born grandchild.
Yesterday was spend with cutting out fabrics, sewing the parts together...

...stuffing them with soft, fluffy wool.....

....and hand stitching the parts in place and embroidering the face.

This is the finished owl.
I love the leaf fabric. It's so versatile !
There will be a change in the owls this year. I feel they need to be a bit different and 
I have already some good ideas.
More about this at a later point as well, so come back and see what 2014 will bring 
for PolarBearCreations.
I'm excited !

2013 Review

I can't believe 2013 is over and done with!
It has been an exciting and busy year for my little creative business.
Selling my creations on the local market on Saturdays has been a wonderful endeavour for me and I loved meeting customers and making new friends.
I didn't sell on any type of market for at least 10 years so it was a bit scary, but now I feel I got the routine down. At first I was scared that I would not be able to make enough during the week since I was also still working my day job, but it all worked out.  
My Etsy shop has of course also been a big part of my business. 
So this year I wanted to see what I actually made , and here are some mosaics with my creations from 2013.
Sadly I missed taking a bunch of pictures of items I sold on the market 
because I would finish them the night before and never got a chance .
Regardless I'm quiet impressed of what I've accomplished !
Thank you to everyone who has been a part of this wonderful journey.
Oh, I also reached 1000 likes( now 1080) on my facebook page!
That's HUGE for me ! Honest!!!!
Love you all!!
:)
So here as promised the collections:





 and my one and only full size doll.....
Celeste!  


Thank you again for your support and stay tuned . 
I plan to have a busy year 2014 as well and hope to realize a whole bunch of new ideas.

Happy New Year and all my best wishes to you!
May all your dreams come true!

Bunch o bunnies

Look at all of these cute bunnies!!!
You know what? They are all still looking for a new home!
Can you believe it??????
 All my bunnies are made from all natural materials, like cotton velour,cotton fabric,cotton terry and stuffed with clean carded sheep wool. Their faces are embroidered!
No small parts!!!
Perfect for babies and toddler to cuddle with.
Go check them out in my Etsy shop!









At this time I'm not taken any new custom orders for Christmas.

Fall Play....

Fall is here and it's beautiful!
Kids love to play outside in the leaves and run through the woods.
Why not bring some of that magic inside in form of some soft  safe ,natural leaves, mushrooms, logs and tree stumps?


If you are using them as a play set , decoration or for a nature table.


 With little gnomes ......



 .....or for your dolls to play with.

The possibilities for your imagination are endless.

Did you know the mushrooms come in different sizes and also with a heavy bottom so that they can stand?
