fg.jpgOh, I love all of you already!!I like your jokes and sense fo humor. And speaking of age...When you become a famous artist&? How much time would it take? Does your age have something to do with that?
I'm 28:rolleyes: No more secrets...

Hi Julia,is that you??Your gorgeous girl!! I love your new avatar also.I don't think age has anything to do with it,some of us start early,some of us start late but we are all destined to be hooked at some time.An artist is an artist,it just takes longer for some of us to find our "true" medium.

Blessings,Shari.

Welcome Julia.  I think the only way that age plays a part in this is that those of us who didn't get started until our 40's have to work harder to keep up with you younger ones.  I am no spring chicken (47) so I guess that makes me a summer hen.

Im a little late in my welcome.  Welcome Julia.

I was wondering how the age thing came up in this string until I went back to #27.  Age DOESN'T matter - especially when you started late!!!  Hopefully I can make a lot of bears before its to late, I just have some catching up to do thats all.:lol::lol:

Wow Julia,  you are beautiful and so young !! :cool:

I turned to 37 last week.  I started making bears since winter of 2002 so it's about 3years now. I am no famous yet....or not sure if I will be !? :rolleyes:

I was going to post this information last night but my pc was down....sorry.
Here is the USA postal service fee to Russia.

My last  shipping fee was $21.00USD( Airmail Parcel Post  ) and my order was 4 of 1/4 yd mohair and 1 of 1/3 mohair.  I think what you paid before was

it's guaranteed service.
I hope this will help you...a little ? maybe ? :P

Hi Julia,

Fantastic photos, thanks for posting them!  I don't think I got a chance to say hello to you earlier, so better late than never.  Hello and welcome to the board!  Don't worry about getting a late start in making bears, I am your age and just started about a year ago.  Bear artists seem to have no age barriers, so have fun with it!

Hugs,
Kelly

Girls you're big welcome. Good you like the show:)
Pictures are great. Great artists, great bears.
I started to make bears in 2003. Rihgt now I'm planning to start making dolls. Got a clay, and stuff for it.
I found really talanted artist in my city who makes dolls for 15 years already!! How come we didn't across each other earlier???
So he persueve me to start to make dolls. i guess, I'll have to manage myself to make bears and dolls at one time. I'm really looking forward! I know some of you, girls, make dolls, so I thought it's not very strange I desided to start to make one.
Also he promised to make my web page on his cite! bear_laugh when I finish few more bears. http://www.mydolls.nm.ru./index.htm
Igor (that's his name) is now giving me e-mail master-class;).

I have my 2 web pages done. It's in Russian but you can see pictures of my bears not all of them cause it's just pages on our famous doll artist's website. He kindly made those pictures for me. JUST FOR FREE.
Thank you, Igor.
