My finished bear Doolan has now become Byron. He has a crisp white collar and stylish tie. He even has a kangaroo tie pin just to set things off a little. Doolan looked so studious when he was dressed up a little that I changed his name to Byron after Lord Byron and Byron Bay (Australia’s most easterly point) which is just down the road a little. His full name in fact is Byron Victor Frughurt – in honour of those who made a few suggestions!

As you can see his favourite author is Thomas Hardy. I look forward to using Byron in card designs in the near future.



Meet Doolan, one of my handmade bears and what a handsome guy he is! I think he needs a couple of items of clothing to make him look classy and swish ready for his debut on one of my greeting cards. Probably a nice collar and tie would do it! He also needs a new name. Suggestions are most welcome.

Hope you like him.
