Smokey the Bear

This is a piece I made for an upcoming art show at Bear and Bird Gallery in Lauderhill, FL.  The show is curated by Heidi Kenney, so of course I was delighted when I got the email asking if I'd want to make something for it!  

If you find yourself in the area anytime from June 28th-August 10th, stop by Bear and Bird and say hello to Smokey for me!

**Here are all the details on the show!

  7. This is so cool! I love the Bear and the Bird art gallery even, went there for my birthday a couple years ago. You've now given me a reason to head there in the next couple weeks for the show! Seriously, when I saw this on my Facebook feed, I was so excited! Will you be selling the piece? If so, I hope I can get there before someone else claims it. Truly, as a fan of the art gallery and your work, this is awesome.

  9. Amen to this. It's such a tough balance between staying home with kids and pursuing a passion/career. Love your blog and I'm continually inspired by it. Found you via A Beautiful Mess - met Elsie years ago at a scrapbooking event. Been hooked ever since.

    Love your little Smokey the Bear too - he's darling!

  20. He's absolutely adorable. I love all the detail work you've done on him. Especially since he seems very true to both how he normally looks and your signature creation style. I'm kinda obsessed.

  29. THIS IS AMAZING!!! I am a fire Ranger in Ontario, Canada so smokey the bear is close to my heart! First, this completely made my day! Second, This is BY FAR the most adorable smokey the bear I have ever seen! As a crafter, I can totally appreciate the love and amount of work that must have gone into this project and probably a super fun one too! Thanks for making my day! All of the dolls you make are stunning!
