Monday Meetings - Carolyn of Draffin Bears

Good morning my lovely staff. How are all of you on this beautiful day? Harrington, Sugie and I are doing great and looking forward to a productive week. Shall we get our meeting started?

This week I am delighted to introduce you to my friend, Carolyn of Draffin Bears. Carolyn lives in a beautiful place in New Zealand! Cool huh?

I tell ya, blogging has a way of bringing people together. I met Carolyn as she is a frequent visitor to my blog. She always has kind words to say and is yet another blogger I would love to meet in person so I could give her a big ol hug!

Carolyn has a wonderful blog. She not only is a wonderful bear artist (visit her shop here), but her blog posts contain a myriad of fun and interesting things from gardening, art, decorating, and inspirations.

I love this post she did. "The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt by the heart." -Helen Keller

Carolyn is a wonderful gal and I'm so happy to call her my friend. Do hop over and pay her a visit. Tell her Shell and the bunnies say hi!

Have a fantastic and magical week everyone.
Meeting adjourned.
xx, shell, sugie and harrington

I've been a long time follower of Carolyn's blog. She is truly a lovely lady. When I think of her I think of Grace Kelly and Audrey Hepburn.

I LOVE sweet Carolyn. We became friends through the teddy bear community. She is so caring and kind and makes lovely bears--and don't get me started about where she lives. I so want to live there, at least for a while! :o)
