A little about me.
As you may or may not know my name is Sharon. Since I can remember I have collected teddy bears. I love them with a passion. I have hundreds in my personal collection, even after a massive cull a few years ago lol.
The other thing I love is sewing. My mum taught me to sew when I was about 7 or 8 years of age. I have always sewn by hand. All sorts of things.
When my love of teddies and sewing came together a number of years ago you could not image my excitement.
My two loves teddies and sewing, making me a business.
Yes, it's true, my passions and loves have become my full time business.
The other thing I love desiging. Creating colour, drawing, artwork and much much more.
When you get a teddy personalised with Bears in Boxes, you don't only get a personalised teddy bear. What you get is a whole lot of love in that teddy bear. A personalised design created by me. One could say I have over 40 years experience and it would be true, 40 years of loving and caring for teddies.
Created with love for the very person you are sending your teddy too.
I take care with him. I love him till the very end, until he reaches his new owner and his new home. I think of him often after he leaves me. Like one of my special children leaving the nest. He leaves me with a kiss and a well wish.....Godspeed little bear, off to your new home.
I am very proud now that after 8 years of business I have had many sucesses.
I have helped raise money for charity - $40,000 for Ronald McDonals House Charities. Any many others. I am working with a number of charities in 2016 to help raise funds for their various needs. All through my gorgeous bears.
I have been a business award finalist and business award winner. This makes me so happy that the love of my bears has helped me achieve all these great things in life.
Tomorrow night (Saturday 23rd April 2016) I am a finalist in none other that The Australian Business Awards. WOW. It is an honour. I can't wait to see how it all goes. I will keep you all posted.
Loving my business and creating my personalised teddy bears makes me happy. Seeing peoples faces and getting special messages of thanks is also a great thing.
If you love a bear, give him a kiss goodnight, cause you never know where he might lead you.
