Hi folks,
I'm not new to Teddy talk thought I haven't been here in forever I think I have let at least a year pass by since I have shown my face (haven't made a bear in so long but thinking it's time to pick up the mohair). 

Anywho the reason for my visit, I had the strangest email and I knew if anyone could answers my ? it would be you guys.  I just got an email looking for love and not bears sent through this site or so the sender would have me believe looked teddy talk official but when I headed into my messages on this site no email from this person.  Just wondering if this is a new thing since I have been away for so long not sure if this has been going around and I'm just the last one on the boat to get this kind of email.  Has anyone else gotten solicited for non bear related stuff through teddy talk.  I just deleted the message but I would hate to think some wacko is using Teddy Talk to push their perversions. Looked up to see if I could find the sender in the members list and you guessed it no such luck.  I'm chalking this up as just another scam and unfortunately Teddy Talk is the venue in which this person is using to get to people.

Thanks so much for your time

Hi Deborah,
I haven't gotten any such thing and I am on TT fairly frequently - haven't heard of anyone else mentioning it either so I have no idea how it happened - but you're right it must have been some kind of scam - wierd how they could send it through TT though????

YES, Me Too!  I got the email saying there was a private massage for me on TT.
The only good thing to come out of this spam is that I got back on the site after a couple of months. I enjoyed all the great bears... You guys are so darn good...

I haven't been on the site much this summer as I have been up to my neck in renovating furniture, and painting about 100 miles of old pine Ikea shelving.  Now I'm playing catch up on my teddy bear projects before heading for our winter home in Florida at the end of the month.
We're stopping in Baltimore on the way to Sarasota to do the Hunt Valley Christmas show on November 1st. I hope to see some of you there and at the Brighstar show in Tampa in February.  Please look me up if you're there. 

ave a great Holiday Season.  I hope to get back on TT soon to show off some of my new stuff.

Hey Bearbottomsbears I guess you and I where brought back here for a reason and if it took spam to get us here than Yahoo to spam.  I plan on dropping by more often seeing all these wonderful bears makes me realize just how much I miss the bear community.  I'm looking forward to getting to know everyone all over again.

Yes, I received the same message.  I haven't been here for a while either, so it was kind of a wake up moment.  Life is just so busy.
Going to Hugglets in February and attending University in evening has me totalling occupied.  Hope to be here more often now!

Hey Deborah!
     You're just so darn cute, they couldn't resist LOL!  I just found out from Karen that you are back from BC.  I'd love a chat -  PM me or email me when a good time is.  Maybe Thursday?  Hope to talk to you soon.

I'm another one that hasn't been on here in a long time and just got that spam email. I never understand what drives these people as nothing good can come from it.

Anywho, nice to see some familiar names and all the wonderful creations. I've turned to knitting and only now and then do I make a bear, and then usually in crochet.  bear_original

Hi Gail
Thank you so much for noticing, I just added one of my bears to Cicely Mary Barkers fairies she is a cutie isn't she. 

I do have an etsy shop but sell mostly my altered pendants and bears when I make them.  I have sold some mixed media stuff but I mostly trade that kind of art with the few mail art groups I belong to. If you click the website link on my avatar it should take you to my etsy shop, and of course there is my blog I have some of my mixed media projects that I have traded on that.
Thanks again
Hugs Deborah
