I'm about to join there if I can also show my collections, not just bears I've made. Also, I get my dolls from thrift stores and I hope they'll let me show them. For me, a good doll is just one you can love and hug, the same with bears. If they look pretty, great, but I would feel weird squuzzing and sleeping with a $600 doll or bear. Sorry to the people who make bears at that price range. As soon as I typed that, I was like, "Oh shoot." I paid 50 cents for my bear Jocko and I'd rather have him than the most expensive bear in the world. I hope you artists don't take that as disrespect to your wonderful bears, but even you probably wouldn't want someone sleeping with your bears and crying all over them.
I know about Eva. She's on teddy bears forum and I talk to her all the time. She's one of the people that got me started collecting dolls. I have three of her bears and I'm trying to get more. I mostly like to buy dolls from thrift stores because I need to touch them, but I think she would be able to help me get a doll I would like. Right now I'm trying to collect her bears.
