My name is JoAnne OHanlon and I have been designing and creating bears and their friends for 18 years. I love working with mohair and various imported faux fur fabrics in all hues of various colors. My bears are always 5 way jointed, poly/pellet filled, and have glass eyes. I am always amazed how exciting it is to take a piece of fur and transform it into a bear with his or her own personality, attitude, and lovability. My moto has alwasy been "A touch of whimsy to sooth your soul"
