Shelli - although I'm only new to this website, I can see how much work & effort you have tirelessly put in to TT over the years.  You are admired by your peers, and it's well deserved.

You are a truly inspirational artist - I for one am in awe of your talent, and I thank you for the contributions you have made to the Library.  I personally have found them very rewarding and helpful.  Thankyou - hope you have time to keep making plenty of bears - I look forward to seeing more of your new creations in the future.

Shelli...I pop on TT so very rarely anymore (about every 3 months or more)  so I am glad I did this evening.

You have been such a friend to everyone here on TT and always soooo willing to help anyone in anyway you could.
I am sure there is not a person here that hasn't been touched by your kindness over the years.

Best wishes in everything you are about to embark are a dear lady.

Thank you so much, Shelli, for all of the hard work and time you've put into making Teddy Talk THE greatest forum to visit for gool ol' Teddy Bear EVERYTHING!  You know, I don't know where I'd be if it weren't for the many, MANY helpful and ingenius tips, tutes, and techniques I learned here.  Not to mention the many friends I've met. And I have you in part to thank for it. I'm so glad this isn't goodbye, and glad also that you're making a new beginning... the beginning of 'Just Plain Shel'.  bear_tongue  OK, OK, there's nothing plain about ya OR your bears....  :hug: Rock on, Shelli!

Shelli, your posts are always the ones I most look forward to reading.  Always so insightful and informative!  I'm really really glad you're not leaving TT, but totally understand your decision! 
I have been in a similar position in the past, and obligations can sometimes outstay their welcome.  It is tiring!

Thank you for all the help you've offered to everyone!

Shelli, you have gone above and beyond in your role as advisor.  Teddy Talk would not be what it today without you on the team.  I sincerely appreciate your  committment and dedication  over the past few years.
Glad to hear you will still be joining in as "just Shel" .  Enjoy your new found, well deserved freedom.
