"I'm called Toots -- like Tootsie. Papa Ted is teaching artists how to make my sisters."
"Well, I have a lot of sisters too my they don't make them anymore."
"Well kid, I think this is the beginning of a wonderful friendship."
Maria has just made friends with TOOTS - the teddy bear that I am teaching bear making students to create at EbearZ University online. If you would like to sign up for the classes you still have five days to register and join in the fun. Meanwhile, Toots and Maria are off on an adventure together. I suspect that Toots will be looking for honey cookies.
