Dear Collectors,

I admit I have not participated in many of the wonderful competitions available to teddy bear artists.  However, after some gentle persuasion from my collectors, I have promised to do better in the future.  It is a warm and fuzzy feeling when one of my bears has been nominated or written about and I am happy to share the honors and articles with you.  For those who have voted for my work in past competitions, I thank you from the bottom of my heart!  I don't take such things lightly so you have my eternal gratitude.

Bear Hugs,
Cathy Lynn Forcino
