Hi Everyone,

The first issue of Bearwitched is live!  Take a browse through the site and tell me what you think!!

I would like to thank all the support, the wonderful emails, people who have submitted photos, oyu are all wonderful!

Please take a look at the Current Issue and let me know your thoughts.  We have over 60 New Creations, 10 Bears with Bows and 20 White bears.  Along with TWO artist profiles, a collector profile, 4 fantastic bear related articles - three of which have been written by fellow Teddy Talkers.

I would LOVE people to support this, and let their collectors know about the web-zine. I'm hoping it's going to be a huge success with lots of readers!

Remember to get me your photos in plenty of time for the next issue which is due out on Feb 1st.    :bday:

Looking forward to hearing what you think of the zine!

Danni, the new beary site is fabulous and very professional. I have no doubt that it will go from strength to strength in 2006 - i for one will be popping in regularly (oh dear, there goes one of my new years resolutions already - to spend less time on the computer).

Good Luck with Bearwitched  bear_thumb

Big ups to you my friend - the site is great!  I know that a lot of hard work has gone into this so give yourself a pat on the back  bear_original
Looking forward to seeing it develop over the year.  (oh and thanks for putting my bear's photo in too...I'm sure that goes for everyone else on here too!)

Excellent, Danni!  Wow, you've got so many talents and skills under your belt.  I'm always playing "catchup" with my bearmaking and usually forget to submit photos to magazines, Bears & Buds, etc., so I'll probably be just as awful submitting to you.  Please find me if I can help round out your pages, with a reminder!

I love the colors of your site -- very soothing and pretty, without being too distractingly feminized -- and the mailing lists and giveaway contest are just great ideas put to good use.

I wish you the very best of luck, and have bookmarked your site for future visits!

Great job,

NancyAndFriends Posts: 1,153

Oh my gosh, Danni.  That is just gorgeous !!
I don't know where I have been, I didn't even know you were doing such a project.  WOW, I am truly impressed!
I can hardly wait for the next issue to come out.
All the topics are so interesting and the photos...well, the photos are purely delightful! 
Did I say I loved it?

By the way, how many hours are in your Australian days?  Where in the world did you find the time to do such a marvel?

I hope you keep this going for a long time.

Just got back from reading all the articles and looking at all the amazing bears . . . Danni, you are a wonder!  You have done a beautiful job with getting the web-zine up and going.  How exciting for you!  I look forward to seeing future issues and participating myself!  Fantastic effort, my friend!

Bearwitched is great!  Danni, you did a great job!  And so did all the contributors!   :clap:

I have finished reading everything yet, but I've enjoyed everything so far.  Everything looks nice.  Reading the articles is easy on your eyes and makes it fun.  Sometimes you read stuff and the content is interesting to you, but the way the font, colors, etc.  just don't make it fun to read.  And Bearwitched is fun to read (of course, I love the content too).  Not sure if this makes sense.  But it's supposed to be a compliment.  bear_original

I haven't finished reading this month's, but I'm already excited for next month's issue.  Keep up the good work!

Danni, you did a wonderful job and i must say are very talanted in every field. I'm not good at websites or computer programming jist bears and languages, so I admire people who can deal with math, chemistry, computers, etc..

Danni, I hope your site will become the main collector's  site not only in Australia but in the whole world too.. :hug:

I have contacted you directly about Bearwitched several times over the last month or so as you kindly offered to write an article about my bears.

I just wanted to say publicly what an amazing job you have done here. I remember when you said that you were thinking about launching the site it seemed that in days you already had the bulk of the site set up and with such a profssional look. I know this has taken up so much of your time and that other bearmakers as well as myself  and collectors will find this of enormous benefit and interest so thank you, thank you for your hard efforts.

I wish you so much success with it. :hug:

Well Done Danni,
                               I have just visited and it really is a job well done. How you get time to make bears and do this is just amazing. Hope 2006 is your year.
