Tuesday in Teddy Bear Republic

I hope that everyone had a wonderful and fun Hallowe’en.

I certainly did.  My goal for next year is to design and sew a fun costume for roaming around West Hollywood.  There were some pretty wonderful and creative costumes there.
Before I get into the new sewing projects that I have been working on, I wanted to share with you a few of my recent adventures.  I had a friend staying with me and here are some of the highlights of the trip! 

This is my neighborhood. (above)

Venice Beach was a bit chilly, but still very beautiful.  Here is a before and after dinner at a very find Macrobiotic restaurant called Seed.  (below)

And later after a wonderful meal.

At my new library, a wall mural.(above)

And below, a few Hollywood Stars…

The Muppets are a huge influence on my love to design stuffed animals!  And who doesn’t love a little M.J.?

And finally, a great hike that I enjoy above my apartment and into the Hollywood Hills.  This private house’s garden, takes me to serenity whenever I view it! 

My creativity is coming along nicely this week!  I have finished some new softies and will be posting them to my store soon. I have a show coming up soon at the Silverlake Art/Craft/Vintage fair in November. You can expect to see my softies, my traditional jointed bears, and some holiday decorations as well.  Because the show is vintage, you will find a nice surprise on my table.  Collectible comic books!  Oooh, it is going to be so much fun!  I can’t wait!  I hope to see you there! 

Here is the link to the Silverlake show.  I sure do love Silverlake.


Okay,   I hope you have a great Tuesday!  I am off to my West Hollywood Women’s Book Club to discuss “The Hunger Games”

My name is Jenny Smith and I am a Teddy Bear Artist. I have a need to be creative many hours per day. I am currently living in West Hollywood and my Canadian blood is enjoying the sunny warmth of Southern California. When I am not sewing and creating, you can find me, running, working out, writing, drawing, reading, gardening and attending the occasional flea market.
