The latest Fashion Trends in Slippers for the fall season...LOL!



Amy, Ginger and Michelle - on a side note I love this photo because it looks like Michelle is saying to Amy - "Now when you where those bear claw slippers, you really need to let out a big GROOOOOWWWWWWWWWLLLLLLLLL!!!"


A very sweet collector (sorry my mind is like a sieve so I retain nothing).  I know someone else will pipe up with her name.  Anyway, she went all out with her jammies and slippers!  And sitting next to her is Bev White.

Martha Burch (I was lucky enough to get her pin in the swap - I'll post a photo later), Ginger Brame and Sue Ann Holcomb


The talented and super sweet Michelle Lamb!


Tami opening her pin swap.  She did a really great job of organizing the whole thing!!!  Lots of fun!!!


I'll have pics of the showroom and the class later on.  There's tons of them that I have to sort, etc.  It was great fun and I really enjoyed meeting all the people I chat with so frequently!!!

Well I was very fortunate that way as a very nice friend and bear artist offered to let me "camp out" at her house.  I don't want to mention her name because everyone might want to do it!!!  Anyway, I don't think I could have gone otherwise.

Hi all - I missed a Good Night!!

The collector sitting next to Bev White is Jackie Morris - one of the pioneering bear makers from the 80s & 90s!
She started one of the first, in not the First, listings of bear artists in a huge compilation. The name escapes me -- Bears Direct??

Awesome pics Lisa!!!!!  Thanks cause I forgot my camera  :doh:

The lovely collector next to Bev White is Brenda Sneddon - also a fellow TTer!!  I really enjoyed talking with her about her Halloween teddy bear display  bear_grin   She also won the prize for best fuzzy slippers... and if you take a close look at her picture you will see why she won!!  She went ALL out... bear slippers AND jammies!

Thanks Laura Lynn!!!  I knew you'd remember her name because I saw you over there chatting with her!

When you have toddlers, it helps to travel with people whose brains haven't been turned to total mush!!!

It looks like you guys had so much fun.  I'm super excited that so many bear artists felt welcome to attend even though they're not even "regulars" here at TT.  I may have resigned as an "official" advisor here, but this place is still my baby and so much a part of me, so that makes me incrediblyhappy; we've always tried to be so welcoming here.

HUGE thanks and credit and hugs and love to Tami for creating that same welcoming atmosphere at her Fuzzy Slipper event.  It looks like it was a resounding success as a result of her caretaking and good spirit.  I sooooo wish I could have gone!

Thanks for the pictures Lisa! I didn't bring my camera and I probably would have forgotten to take pictures if I had. Steve took loads of pictures, but I'm sure he's very busy getting ready for the Hunt Valley MD show.

It was a fun event!  We will have to do it again.
Thanks to everyone for coming! Thanks to those who donated door prizes (there were a lot!) and thanks to those who brought goodies!
Also a big thank you to Connie and Amber for getting the hospitality suite for us!! It was a perfect place for the event. It would have been really crowded to have it in a regular hotel room.

Anyone else here think that our Sue-Ann looks fantastic? She is so attractive don't you think?
I always knew i hated her for a good reason!  :crackup:  :crackup:  :crackup: (this is a Joke in case anyone thinks i'm an evil cow)
Fantastic profile you have there Sue-Ann, or should we call you Hottie Tottie now?
You all look like like you had a fab time - i have slipper envy, you all put my disgusting old flip-flops to shame  bear_cry

Well, that photo really doesn't do Sue-Ann justice.  She is really stunning in person.  And super nice too as is her husband.  Both are really an asset to the bear world and I sincerely mean that as it's so important to have someone who supports your hobby and your art.

Cheers to you super sweet, super cute Sue-Ann!
