Little Precious On Board

Today is an exciting day for me and my family, because my sister has delivered a baby girl =)
Baby girl weights 2258 grams and is 44 cm tall! I feel a sudden urge of undescribable happiness when I saw her in the nursery. How I wish I have a baby too!

My mum carried the baby gently while I took some pictures, it's shame that only parents or grandparents are allowed to enter the nursery, I can only watch my niece through the window.

Oh dear, I am now a uncle, how I wish my niece calls me brother instead, I feel so old now...
She is so precious to us, I so looking forward to visit her in the hospital tomorrow =)

I hope you enjoy viewing these baby pictures as much as I do, have a great weekend everyone!

New bunny again??? Here's Toothie =D

Yes... I have been crazy lately, I have been making bunnies since day one of 2011... Haha and I am still making them now =) Perhaps I am in the Chinese New Year mood, making more bunnies to welcome the year of rabbit. Sometimes, I wish that I do have bunnies as pets so that I can make more realistic bunnies.

Here's Toothie, my new bunny design. This time I have given him a bunny tooth and air brushing too. Look! He is wearing a Wayneston Bears wooden charm! I hope you will enjoy his pictures.
Toothie is now available on Bear Pile.

I am thinking what to make next? Any suggestions? Maybe I should start making a few more Wayneston Babies =) Thanks for stopping by my blog, we hope you have a nice day =D

Celebrate the making of 100 Wayneston Bears

Dear bear friends,

I am proud to announce that I have made 100 Wayneston Bears!!! Woohooo =)

I have done some counting (photographs) a few weeks ago... and was thrilled to find out that I have made more than 100 bears. Although my bears are small in size, this is one of the accomplishment that I wanted to make when I first started bear making.

You may not know that this blog is specially created for myself to write about my journey from day 1 to become a bear artist. This is a dairy of myself, each time I create something new, they will be registered in here. As I look back at my older posts, I see the improvements that I have made and most importantly, the way my bears/creations evolve. This is an interesting process and I am glad that you are all here to withness my growth =)

For a period of more than 1.5 years, 100 bears have been made, although not every piece that I have created are the best, I have treated them like my babies... I have kept the first few bears that I have created, so that I remember the reason why I wanted to become an artist.

I am still constantly creating bears/animals everyday, so now my room is now filled with Wayneston Bears!
Hence, I will like to use this opportunity to offer up to 20% discount on Wayneston Bears that is featured on my website at this link.
Click on the tab "Promotions" to adopt a Wayneston Bear.

I hope they will find good homes soon. Thanks for the encouragement, I will do my best and look forward to my making of 200 bears =)

Have a great weekend!

Work in progress ^.^

Ok... I must confess that I have been very lazy this few days, I think I just need a break.
I have been spending some time after my day job watching dramas and tv programmes. LOL

Of course I did some sewing but very slowly... Here's a new bunny that I am working on right now.
She is the smallest Wayneston bunny that I have ever made, I think her cute face is evolving =)

I will be swapping this bunny with a local bear artist (I shall keep her name secret right now...Haha)
and she will be making me a panda =)

We will be switching the bears this Chinese New Year, yipppeee =) , of course I'll post some pictures of the swap here too.

Many thanks for the lovely comments on my previous post about the logo =) I am glad that most of you like my logo. The next time I shall share an article about toys which I wrote for my final year project in school.

Have a great day!

Wayneston Bear Logo

Have you ever wondered how do I create the logo of Wayneston Bears or which bear's head on this logo belongs to?

Today I am going to tell you =)
The bear head belongs to my number 12 bear that I have created. He hasn't have a name and he is not for sale... a bear that I create for myself...
I love this bear facial expression, he makes me smile everytime I look into his eyes. Hence, I have made a firm decision to use him as a mascot for Wayneston Bears.

I took a close picture of him and trace out the details manually on Adobe Illustrator software. I adjusted all the angles and outlines, after that I chose colour codes for my logo. The reason for choosing green... that's my favourite colour =)

One and a half year ago, I started making bears, hoping to become a bear artist because I love to create and I want to be a toy designer. My love for soft toys grew over the years and I wish to create a range of toys myself. The process is very tough, I make bears everyday without fail to improve skills.

Today, I have reached my first accomplishment of creating more than 100 bears/animals! I hope that my creations can be seen by more people and touch the hearts of people.

I am in the midst of creating a 100 Wayneston Bears montage for my blog, getting my fingers crossed to complete it this week. Thanks for the support and visit my blog =)

Hugs & Kisses, Wayneston Bears

Katie Fulford of Loveable Treasures made me these felted animals, aren't they cute? She specialises in making mini detailed animals. Her workmanship is superb and I would highly recommend her. If you are looking for unique gifts for your love ones on any occasions, please visit her online shop at this link.

Raccoon is my birthday present on April and panda is my xmas present. Thank you Katie =)
