2006-10-25 [Misty Lady]: Oh hello [Artsieladie]. I think this is a wonderful wiki...I love popping in from time to time. I also love your house. Its so colorful and warm and friendly. Its a real pleasure to browse through.
2006-10-26 [Morningstar Rising]: Thanks, glad to be here. :)
2007-03-26 [Artsieladie]: Welcome to Teddy Bear Lovers, [Dark Side of the Moon]! :D Hi, ladies! *huggles & grins* Am I bad or am I bad? I just haven't been able to get here. This wiki needs a fresh look! :P
2007-03-26 [Morningstar Rising]: *laughs* you will get around to it.
2007-03-27 [Artsieladie]: I've started the 'fresh look' with this page. :)
2007-03-27 [Artsieladie]: I'm thinking about a Teddybear Photo Contest, a Teddybear Art Contest, &/or a Teddybear Poetry Contest. Any thoughts, anyone? :P)
2007-08-07 [Morningstar Rising]: I have a few, not many, but enough.
2007-08-07 [Artsieladie]: I'm thinking about selecting a few to keep & then the rest, I'll wash & take to a nursing home or somewhere where they can be hugged & cuddled. The folks that are in the nursing homes really love to have stuffed animals to hug. I think about children who are ill, too. A Teddybear can be a significant, positive symbol for hope. :D
2007-08-07 [Grandamelf]: If I had to choose between Art or Poetry for a Teddybear contest, I would choose poetry because everyone has thoughts about their favorite bears, so I think you would get more entries! Tough Choice! :)
2007-08-07 [Artsieladie]: I think I agree, b/c it would be easier to portray thoughts & feelings relating to our Teddybears or Teddybears in general through words rather than visual art. :P
2007-08-07 [Morningstar Rising]: I can help you run it if you want to make one.
2007-08-07 [Dark Side of the Moon]: oh boy, a teddy bear poetry contest! *starts thinking* Did anyone have a weird name for theirs? My teddy bear's name was Grape. oO
2007-08-07 [Artsieladie]: I think a poetry contest would be good, b/c there really aren't that many writing contests on ET, that I'm aware of, aside from an occasional official one, usually associated with a holiday, and the Daily Poem, of course. The DP isn't a contest, though, actually. My concern is, however, could enough interest & participation be sparked for it? :P He he [Dark Side of the Moon], I wasn't as ingenious or original. My first Teddybear I simply called "Teddy". Some other names are: Fuzzy-Wuzzy, Angel, Charlie, Bear, Jingles, Buddy, & Wubby-Dubby. :D
2007-08-07 [Dark Side of the Moon]: Wubby-Dubby! lol! Unfortunately, a couple of years ago I threw Grape into the washer to get her cleaned up. Folks, please take my advice: never toss an old teddy bear into a washing machine. The carcass was plastered against one side and the stuffing lined the bottom. I cried.
2007-08-07 [Artsieladie]: Aww, that's a shame. *hugs* I use a fine-washables netting bag & the delicate cycle. Even so, very little agitating, mostly soaking & hand squeezing. :P
2007-08-07 [Dark Side of the Moon]: Yeah, I used the delicate cycle also; but alas, it was too much for Grape. There's no way of repairing her now, so my dad's going to build a shadowbox to put her in. Thanks Artsie, I'll have to remember that the next time I wash my stuffies! Maybe hand-washing would be best.
2007-08-08 [Artsieladie]: I hand wash anything I really like a lot or if I suspect in the slightest that it might not be able to withstand the washing machine's agitating. I only wish I had known before & thus, could have told you before you washed Grape.
2007-08-08 [Grandamelf]: Hi, I had a pink Bear when I was a child, I called Woolenuff!
2007-08-08 [Artsieladie]: *grins* That's a cute, unique, & original name. How did you come up with the name? :D
