A box of bears

Over the Summer and Fall, I worked on a ton of stash-busting bears, but I was so preoccupied with work that they just piled up until finally, yesterday I made it to the post office to send them off.  But first, of course, a few photos!

These are from my “Literary Bears” A-Z series, so these particular bears include The Count of Monte Cristo,  Fudge, Gilbert Blythe, Ichabod Crane, Jo March, Matilda Wormwood, Nancy Drew, Oliver Twist, Peekay, Ramona Quimby, and Christopher Robin.

Some, but not all are meant to resemble their namesakes.  I think that was what made this bunch a little harder to part with than usual.  In general, these characters were from books that were pretty special to me.   I’m sure they’ll be special to their new forever friends in Africa, so it’s all worth it.
