Janeen is amazing! This is my third bear to purchase from her and I wouldn't go anywhere else! She is always willing to work with me and she makes the most beautiful bears. Thank you for working with us!

Absolutely blown away by my memory bears. Janeen, was such a pleasure to communicate with. The Bears are very well made and the attention to detail is just outstanding. Janeen made a copy of the cap my grandad wore and also put his name tag from the care home inside it. I don't know how Janeen did it, but my bear looks like my grandad every time I look at him. Can't rate this bears enough. I ordered from Scotland, postage expensive, but worth it. My friends will also be getting in touch to place orders as they were so impressed. Look no further if you want something special for a lost loved one. Thanks again Janeen xxx

I am so very impressed with the bears that were custom made for me! More beautiful than the pictures on Etsy shows! The quality and workmanship is perfect! These bears have a great meaning to my family and right now they are in my little girl's nursery - a reminder that her Grandfather is watching over her...there are no words to express how grateful I am to Janeen for making such a special keepsake!! Janeen Thank-you for ensuring the bears arrived on time for a special family gathering that we had on Fathers Day. and the bears were at the heart of our event..family and friends are still complimenting the bears. I would recommend everyone to have a custom memory bear created by Janeen! Thank-you, Thank-you, Thank-you!!!

We come from a long line of crafty women. Depression era farmer's wives and their love of all that is handmade. Memories of grandmother's sewing drawers stuffed with doll's clothes. Beloved handmade creations we fell asleep with and then gave to our children. Many of these patterns our great grandmother used. Others are our own creation, like our favorites, Hortense and Eloise. We are a mother daughter duo who delights in making heirlooms for our family as well as yours!
