Here's the special creation,

especially special!!!
By Nana Connie
featuring Little Bear Personalized Sweater
 My Heart Belongs to Any Name

 Nana Connie wrote to me to tell me how much she was enjoying
 the Little Bear Love Sweaters Dress-Up Fun collection.
(For her complete story, please visit Nana Connie.)

She mentioned that "Nana" should be added to the collection,
bringing to my attention that there are a lot of "Nana's", not just "Grandma's".
It will be a pleasure to add Nana to the collection.

Meanwhile, Nana Connie had a special custom sweater made just for her.
This is how she wanted to use it, with her fabulous Brag Book.

I welcome suggestions and comments.
I read them all with appreciation, aiming to always bring pleasure to you!

Thanks for visiting.
