Silver Lining

Well, the Golden Teddy Winners were announced last night. No, I wasn't fortunate enought to win the public's vote, but I am sooo thrilled for the artist who was chosen.

Judi Paul of Luxembears won in my category ( and 3 other categories ! ) Her work is truly amazing, and she is such a wonderful person too. I've emailed her on ocassion and taken an online class from her also. She is so sweet and humble. I believe her skills are not just learned , this lady has a real God given gift and she uses it to the fullest. She has won so many awards that it really is no surprise she won again this year. So, if I had to lose I am happy she is the person who won !

Congratulations Judi- You Rock !!!

EDITED : After re-reading my post, I hope it didn't sound like I thought the other nominees were less award worthy ! Each of the nominees have amazing talent, and I would be thrilled for any of them to win.

Congratulations to Judi, and congratulations to you and all the others who were up for the awards. Just being nominated is a big thing.

Tammy, your bears are really sweet and they're loved by their owners. An award would be the proverbial icing on the cake, and I'm sure it's yet to come.

Hi Tammy: Tried to send a comment earlier but I lost it somewhere. Perhaps it did go through to you. Anyway, just in case it didn't, I'll try again.
Just being nominated for the award was a big accomplishment for you and the other nominees (and free advertising, too). Your bears are really special and unique. You have a special talent. Congratulations to the winner and also to you and the other nominees. Keep up the good work! Bev
