Yes, I am another former lurker. My name is Lynne and I've made bears off and on since 1984. I have always been a collector. I haven't sold a bear since, I don't know, maybe 1992?? EBay is a great temptation, with all that "easy money" to be made (Ha ha - I am learning from you all).
I love this website and I am hopelessly addicted to the wonderful energy that you all send out!! Boy, my phone was out for three days this week!!! and now it's back, I lost electricity all day and night yesterday!! Okay, I have teddy withdrawal.
I am always amazed and inspired whenever I read these boards. What a great funny, zany, caring community!
I'll post my latest bear photo once I get a decent picture - thanks for the great light tent advice...
Oh, my avatar is a little doodle I made on the old computer...
Hugs to all of you,

Ebay isn't soo scary at all. It take a while to get used to it, and to learn how to post your 1st auction but it's soo worth it.
It's very important to me to know that someone out there wants to buy my art. I think of that when I'm in a funk. Sometimes it's hard to see your work they way others would, and to know they like it enough to buy it, pay for shipping and to wait for it is the biggest complement a girl could get.
