The Unveiling.

Hello again. Sebastian here. Finally, it’s my turn at this blog thing again. Sometimes it seems like it takes for-ev-er when I have to wait.

I have some news to share. It’s the sort of story that kind of goes wiggly and you might not be able to follow it but I’ll try to make it easy for you.

When I have been out with other bear people and then again at Disney, I noticed that a lot of them had pins. Not pens like you write with although they probably had those too, but pins like you wear on your collar or lapel.

I know you’ll forgive my namedropping, but my friends down at Disney – Duffy, Cinderella, Donald, Mickey and so on, they all have pins. They are so colorful and it got me to thinking.

I got to thinking I should have a pin because well, because, I should. So I approached you-know-who with this idea and she surprised me. No, she shocked me actually by saying, yes; she had been thinking that it would be a good idea.

At that point, it occurred to me that perhaps she had been thinking way too long. Like, way way too long. Over thinking it. She does that occasionally.

So, I asked, “What’s the hold up? These things don’t just magically appear. You have to DO something.”

Her reply?

“Yes, I know. I know. I know.”

So I said to her, “Well then, go and DO it!”

And then she said, “There are steps to it. You can’t just say to someone “Make me a pin.” And then, Poof! You’re a pin. There’s finding just the right person to carry it out, then finding an artist and describing exactly what we want. Then you have to wait for them to arrive and hope they are right. Then there should be some way to explain them. Like a card or something.”

To tell you the truth, I began to lose a little hope. It all sounded so complicated, but since I can feign ignorance very easily, I said again, “Just go and DO it!”

I was very surprised when she did. I mean she really did. She did it. She did all those things – although finding the artist wasn’t very hard as I have my own personal portrait artist just a few hours down the road – or up the road. I can never remember which it is.

So, here they are – my pins. My very own pins.


I am so excited! Do you think it looks like me? I couldn’t decide if I should wear my glasses or not. In the end, I decided they added to my allure, don’t you think? The pins aren’t huge nor are they tiny – they are just right at one inch across.


I think the plan is to make them available for purchase. I am going to encourage her to put them on my her teddy bear website.


Then if I see someone on the street wearing one, we can do a thumbs up kind of thing. Like a secret club or something. Although it might have to be paws up since the thumb thing still has me baffled.

  1. I'm so glad you had your glasses on Sebastian. You look much more distinguished that way. Having your own pin is something to be very proud of.

  2. that's a really COOL pin, sebastian! you are one LUCKY chap (uh, i mean, bear). ;p

    you know what, i'd like one of those... since i can't have you.

  3. Sebastian, you are one CLEVER bear for having this desire ! The pins look great and if I can I will order one so your pin will be worn by me (in Holland) too ! How about that ?

    BIG hug,

  4. I need one!

    Oh Sebastian! We must join your club!!

  5. Oooh! Fun! We want two! It is a amazing that it looks just like you Sebastian, you handsome thing you! =)

  6. Sebastian,

    I can say for sure that these pins are absolutely THE THING! I know I treasure mine all the way from the tip of my toes to the top of my little head. Claire often lets me have the pin even though she's concerned that I might not be careful and might poke myself with the sharp part. Oh, these silly people! You and I know what's going on though.

    Your bud,
    George Alvin

Oh yes, you had to have the glasses on or someone would mistake you for that other famous blogger *ME* and LT is WAY too mean to make me pins or anything like that as she says my head is far too big already, sheesh!
