My Old Friends
I'm Christine, the artist behind My Old Friends in Melbourne, Australia.
I am lucky enough to live in Patterson Lakes, a city suburb which is all built around man made waterways.
Its a very peaceful place to live as we are far enough away from the city to be almost in the country but close enough to be able to commute.
The waterways lead out into beautiful Port Philip Bay and many of the residents commute by boat into Melbourne or as far away as Tasmania right from their own doorstep.
Many of my bears come to life as I sit by the water in summer or sit and view from inside during our cold winters.
All my bears are completely hand made be me. I have no outside help and as such I often have a waiting list for my creations. I have actually reduced the wait lately and occasionally add some available for immediate adoption bears too.
I always offer my new creations first to my mailing list so please email me if you would like to join and then you too can take advantage of the offers.
I teach bear making at a few venues in Melbourne and have recently joined forces with Joan Farrely from Everlasting Bears to form On Line Bear Making Classes which have been enormously popular with all the students. The only complaint we have had is we want more which is VERY gratifying.
