                                                      MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!

It is a warm 29 degrees outside here in Akron NY. I hear a bit of tick tick tick on the windows, which means frozen rain! my studio is upside and backwards, which also means a storm of bear creating has been going on.
for the last pieces of 2014 I have created 15 unique teddy's in full Christmas, winter and holiday décor.  I have  added many more details to all my themed embellishments. I wish the photo's did that justice, but on the other hand you will be surprised at all the little details that I so LOVE doing.!
as always if you see a teddy you would like . please contact me at jackiemelerski@aol.com  and we will work out the details.
I wish everyone of you a very merry Christmas and a Blessed new year.
please join me on my new face book page...gilmur rudley. im going to start a new chapter in 2015 , which will include contests, gifts announcements ...fun things!! I've had  few years of health stuff, but im excited to be getting back into my groove! thank you for continuing to love my work...it means everything to me.......................................................jackie
