Monday Meeting - Debora Hoffmann of New Avenue Crew

Good morning staff. Did everyone have a lovely weekend? We're still drying out from all the rain we had here. Over 20 inches. Crazy I tell ya! All is well though and the yard and plants are totally happy!

On to the meeting.

This week I'm very happy to introduce you to a new friend of mine, the lovely, Debora Hoffmann, of New Avenue Crew!

Debora is a Teddy Bear Artist and creates some of the most adorable fuzzy little friends.

This is Borealis. Ya'll know why I love him (white).

This is Pumphrey the Clown. He's available for adoption now! Cutie isn't he? He's ready to dance his way into your heart and bring you lots of smiles every day!

Speaking of adoption, Debora is also the adoptive mom of two beautiful teenage daughters from the Ukraine! She and her husband adopted a teenage girl and her best friend and gave them both a loving home. Wonderful, big hearted, loving, people in my book!

Debora is a participating artist in the upcoming Teddies Worldwide online show. She's working hard to get ready and I know she will have many wonderful new friends for us to meet and adopt into our hearts.

Hop over and visit with Debora. Tell her Shell and the bunnies said hi!

Have a wonderful and magical week!
Meeting adjourned.

xx, shell, sugie and harrington.

Hi Shell:
It never occurred to me that you got all that rain and water! How come I didn't think of that?

Thanks for the introduction to your friend, Debora. I'll go visit for sure. The little bug in the teacup is adorable!

Have a great week!

Barb said...

Ohhhh what a talented lady, thanks for introducing her to us.

Melody said...

Hi Shell and the bunnies,
Glad to hear you have not floated away. An amazing amount of rain.

Jade said...

Glad to hear an ark wasn't needed. :)

I love those bears, but I don't suppose she could branch out into making rabbits as well? I'm imagining she'd make the absolute cutest bunnies.

Hi Shell,

What a lot of rain, do hope that it dries out for you.
I have known Debora for about 10 years and yes, she is the loveliest Lady.

Happy week

what darling teddies! Love the teacup teddy...

Debora said...

Oh, Shell, thank you for such a lovely introduction to me and my Crew members. I am so touched! And thank you for the sweet comments, everyone. xoxo

Jade, I have my very first bunny in the works, but he will need to wait until after the show in November. I've definitely been inspired by Shell and her sweet bunnies to add rabbits to the Crew. :o)

Blessings and bear hugs to you!
Debora, New Avenue Crew

I've know Deborah for a little while through Teddy groups and Facebook - her bears are wonderful! It's so nice to see them here.
