Combining memories and teddy bears since 1999



About Tammy



My love and life of bear making began soon after my mom
lost her long battle with breast cancer. Mama left behind
a life of faith, love, perseverance, and a fur coat.
Mama really loved the coat, so when I saw it hanging in 
the closet two years later, I knew I wanted something special
from it. I wanted a teddy bear! I thought, maybe I could try
and make one, however, not only did I not sew,
but I was born with only one hand.
After several attempts, discouraged and frustrated,
I sadly put the idea away. Days later, remembering what
Mama would have said, and how proud I knew she would be,
I couldn't give it up just yet. Mom always told me I could do
anything I wanted to if I believed I could.
So with those words echoing in my mind...
and my heart, I made my first teddy bear.
Now, with each little bear and dog I make, lives the faith and
love of our Mama, and most importantly,
the belief she instilled in me,

I can do all things through Him who gives me strength. Phil. 4:13
