Thank you , everyone who voted this year in the URSA competition. Without you, I'd have no cause to celebrate.
As always, friends: I hope that you're all staying safe and healthy.
BUTTERCUP & GIZMO
I made a smaller version of Buttercup , my first bag charm! There's yet ANOTHER even smaller hedgehog almost finished now, but I haven't taken photos of that one yet. #3's not technically a mini-Buttercup because he's made with minibear fabrics (unlike Gizmo).

SAFETY WARNING: The Peach Peddler bears are collectibles, intended ONLY for display. Our bears are not toys and should not be handled by anyone under the age of 14. Fragile glass eyes, steel pellets, and other internal hardware could pose choking hazards or otherwise harm children.
The Peach Peddler offers one-of-a-kind artist bears from the highest quality materials available. Each bear is brought to life with lots of love, time, and attention to detail.
My bear, Pudding, was the Feature (Cover) model for the September 2014 digital issue of Bears & Buds magazine, with an article about our company. The Peach Peddler creations have also been included in multiple issues of the print magazine Teddybear Times & Friends (formerly Teddy Bear and Friends), most recently in the April/May 2020 issue.
