My name is Lisa Baker and I have been a collector of Teddy Bears for many years. I bought my first bear kit in Holland in 1996 at a bear fair. I had a lot of fun making it and found that I was soon hooked. Not content in just buying kits and making them, I wanted to design my own style of bears. So pen was put to paper and now 13 years on I am still updating with new designs all the time.
I absolutely love making bears and critters and get a great deal of pleasure seeing their little faces and personality appearing before my eyes. I like my creations to have a very soulful appearance. I am also a freelance craft designer/tutor and demonstrator. I teach for my local craft centre (Invicta Crafts). Besides all of this I also make Stirling Silver beaded jewellery and started silversmithing about a year and a half ago. Can someone please invent 36 hour days!!!!. I started designing for Making Cards Magazine last year, my favourite mag out there. I was also lucky enough to win 'National Cardmaker Of the Year 2008' in Card Making and Papercraft Magazine. I do try to attend a few craft fairs during the year but as you can imagine time is short. This just leaves me to say have a happy viewing of my site.
Hugs, Lisa B.x
