Hi All,

I have been trying to avoid getting into another forum just for lack of time, but have been getting pretty lonely on a nameless other forum. I sent a shout out & Laura directed me here.  I am seeing a bunch of familiar names here!

Hi to all my old friends!

To my new friends, I am a bear maker from New Berlin, Wisconsin.  I have been actively selling my creations for about 5 years now. I have (I think) developed a style I can call my own & really get into creating guys for holidays - with an emphasis on Halloween & Christmas.

So hi to everyone.

Glad to find you.

Hi Amy!  Ah, someone I recognize!  I transferred over from the other board as well, it was very quiet when it was working and at other times... it wasn't working.  I met Amy at the spring Schaumburg show as well, and her bears and other creations are second to none and extremely creative.  They were fun to play with as well bear_laugh  Will you be at the fall Schaumburg show as well, Amy?

Bear hugs,

Hi Amy!!!!!

Here's a working link to her site....

I am a member of the other board and am fond of it .... as I'm not sure Teddy Talk would have happened were it not for the first board bear_ermm  (I could be wrong here bear_tongue )

Unfortunately the other board keeps having lots of technical problems... so for me I know that's why I don't visit there as often.  BUT... I still post on both boards!!

Hi Amy,

Cute avatar....I gotta get myself one of those... :D

I too started out at the "other board" but seems like it was down more than up...then I stumbled upon this one....haven't gone back except to peek every once in awhile.

:That is one of the reasons I am not there.. this board seems "friendlier" to me and there is always someone here and it is always (knock on wood) working! LOL I still go back to that "other" board every now and then but I am on this one daily bear_original  I meant no disrespect to those who are on other boards, this is just my preference bear_happy

Welcome, Amy!  Glad you introduced yourself and stopped by for a stay.  Amy makes fabulous holiday creations; her Halloween critters are my particular favorites.  Get your website up and working, woman!, so the rest of the folks here can rightly admire your talents! :P:lol:

Have fun,

Barnum---Full.jpgHi All,
Thanks fro the warm welcome!:D
Yes I will be at Schaumburg. I really have been busy with some new things. I wish I had the time to do all the stuff I have churning around in my head.  I have just been on a tear lately.  I have so many new ideas & haven't got the time to do them.  I think is has something to do with the fact that I gave notice at my old job and will be starting a new job after Labor Day. Giving my 2 weeks notice has been a very liberating thing.  I have also been very gratified because I have been able to tell many of my customers & have gotten all sorts of feedback on how sorry they are to see me leave.

I am posting a full view of Barnum N Bearly.  He is one of my latest & he just won a ribbon at the Wisconsin State Fair!

P.S. My site was working... I just can't type!
