Hello Everyone

I was just wondering if you work from home or do you have a studio that you go work in away from home?
I currently work from home in a studio in my basement (a great place to work I must say) but I find myself doing other things. Instead of going to the basement and doing what I love (making bears) I feel that everything else must be done first so sometimes I never make it there.
So I'm trying to decide if I should move my studio to an Art Studio where there are other artist, there are no teddy bear artist but other creative people. Actually I find it kind of lonely sewing in the basement, so I'm always ready to do something else if a friend calls.

I'm a bad be my own boss. I guess.

Thanks for any input.

I was wondering the same thing myself. I would have thought there would be someone posting something by now.

Good luck to everyone who entered

Hi Kelly

I'm so glad I cracked you up.  bear_grin  Hey it was early what can you expect? I didn't know that you were running a Teddy Bear Delivery service. bear_original How nice of you to do that. You and your Mom are so Sweet, it was so nice getting to see you both again.

Hi Daphne

It was so nice finally getting to meet you. I get on teddy talk and read alot but rarely post anything, so I kind of feel like I know you. I'm still thinking of apply for your shows. It's a long way from Ohio. So I'm not sure yet. I need to check on Airfare.

Thanks
Marilyn

Hi Tami

Does anyone else have that problem?

Hi Everyone

Does anyone know or have you ever heard of a Teddy Bear Artist and Collectors Cruise? I went on my first Cruise last month with Carnival and I have to say it was my best vacation ever.

I know there are all kind of themed Cruises. I just wonder if there is such a thing as a Teddy Bear Cruise. If not. Why Not. I think it would be so Neat.

Or how about a Teddy Talk Cruise. With a Bear show. How does that sound?

Please let me know if you have heard of one.
Thanks
Marilyn

Your right it is big it's a 20'x20' room but it's just not cozy. I think I'm going to be changing things soon. Our Daughter is getting married next month so I'm thinking of taking her side of the basement instead. It's big too but more narrow. Oh and I'm thinking maybe I want carpet. Am I crazy? I guess the grass is always greener on the other side. I wish you all lived close by. I have enough room we could work together.  bear_grin

Thanks Tami, What a sweet thing to say. I can't wait for the Sauder Village Show just so I can see your Great Bears. I do wish I had a little more time so I could make more bears to take. I'll be on a cruise for a week so that's one week I can't work on my bears. What sacrifices we must make.

Jodi, I did see you walking around but I never had a chance to talk to you. I was always busy or you were across the room when I would see you. Sorry I missed you.

Great little Guy!

Jared the same thing happen to me and I got the same email that you did. This buyer happen to be in the United Kingdom. Was yours?

Amelia. How did you get ebay to refund you money for relisting?

I had my bear in the Featured so I paid about $25 to list, then the buy it now stopped my auction. This person had 0 feedback and then also unregistered. I relisted my bear paid another $24.95 so It cost me about $50 in listing fees total.
the first time I listed it I had a bid and 6 watchers. My auction ends today so far I have no bids and only 4 watchers.

I'm so upset about all this. I'm not loving ebay right now. I would have been better off to give the Bear away as a Christmas Gift and Save my $50

Thanks for listening

Hi Everyone

I just have a ebay question. If you don't mind.

I listed "Frosty" on Ebay Sunday. I had one bid on him with a person that had feedback of over 400. I was so happy. Then a little later someone from the United Kingdom did a BUY NOW. I'm concerned because this person has just joined ebay today and has no feedback. I sent an invoice but I have heard nothing. Do you know how long I should wait to see if I get paid? If he doesn't buy him I'm wasting time because I had made him for Christmas.
Has this ever happen to anyone else?

Any advise you can give me would be Great
Thank You and have a Great Day
Marilyn

Do you have to use an auction template even if you have a web site or can you link it to a page on your site?
Thanks so much for helping

Hi

Could someone please help me with an ebay question?
I have tried to put a listing on ebay and I can't figure out how to get my page to show up in the description section.
When I see some of the descriptions. It looks just like a page from their web site.
How do you do it?
Please help me!
Thanks so much for any advise
Marilyn

mwaggs2

Thanks everyone for your advise. Well from what I had already done. So far I'm happy with the result. The color is not bright but real pretty. The color is not even but that's okay with me too. It's drying now. Do I need to heat set it? Will the color fade over time?
Thanks Marilyn

mwaggs2

No I didn't use hot water, and I didn't use vinegar. Oh crap I wonder what will happen. I didn't use salt either. I only used one packet. Oh well at least I know to rinse it.
Thanks for your help

mwaggs2

Hi can someone please help me? I'm trying to dye mohair for the first time. I bought Orange Kool-aid. I put the packet in a bag with 2 cups of water, and added my mohair.  Now what?
I've have checked what has been written in the past and I can't find out what to do next. How long do I leave it in? Do I rinse it? how do I dry it?
Please Help me if you can
Thanks
Marilyn
