Anyone interested? [Feb. 10th, 2009|10:13 pm]

Hi everyone. ^_^ I collect build-a-bears and I have about 10 or so right now. Most of mine are the beary limited editions. I managed to get #4,095 on one of the gem of a friend bears this year. I was excited. x3;;

Well I've been very busy lately and in a bit of a money crunch. I got a build-a-bear gift card that's unused if anyone is interested. It has $30. If anyone is willing to pay around $30 for it I'll send it to them in a card of some sort or if you shop online I could just give you the number on it :] . I'd prefer paypal if you do want to buy it. ^^

Hi everyone! [Dec. 1st, 2008|07:58 pm]

Hi!  First-time poster here.  I work at Build-a-Bear and love it to death.  When I first got hired, my coworkers said that the novelty would wear off soon, but nope!  I still love it every bit as much as when I first walked into my store over a year ago.  Part of it, I think, is that I love our products. So far, I've made bears of Sesshomaru from the anime Inuyasha, the Joker from The Dark Knight, Ed Elric from the anime Fullmetal Alchemist for a friend, L from the anime Death Note for another friend, and Sephiroth from Final Fantasy VII for a customer, who marveled at the fact that I was sewing for him.  ^_^  I'm also working on making bears of Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy--in fact, the paint on Ivy's tights is drying as I type!  Also Hiei from the anime Yu Yu Hakusho, but shh!  That one's for a Christmas present.

Anyway, if anyone's interested, here's Sesshomaru:

And the Joker:

Hope you like!

A Request for Help [Nov. 10th, 2008|05:43 pm]

Can any US memebers possibly purchase for me the knight in shining armour outfit? It's a US only item and I really want it for my Gawain bear I intend to build. I'd of course pay shipping, handling, for the outfit and even throw in some yummy candian maple treats into the mix. I can pay paypal or check, whichever you prefer. Just let me know :) Thanks!

Plush Animal Lover's Day [Oct. 28th, 2008|08:02 am]

Okay, buildabear_luvers! It's time to put your pictures where your hearts are!

Okay, I fess up. I'm a busy person, and though I had intended otherwise, I didn't get any new, good pictures of me with my first or favorite plush or BABW.

Instead, I offer The Great Flumpkyn:

The picture is via my cell phone... so I apologize about the quality.

Anyone else care to share?

Plush Animal Lovers Day [Oct. 22nd, 2008|11:20 am]

Did you know that there is a quietly observed holiday called Plush Animal Lover's Day?

Yes there is, according to Holiday Insights, my source for fun and bizarre things to celebrate.

There are also several Teddy Bear days too.

How about everyone gets a picture of their favorite Best Friend(s), whether or not they are Build-A-Bears, maybe even pictures of themselves WITH their friends, and post them on the day of the holiday?

The holiday is one week from yesterday, October 28th.

Show off your luv of fluff! :) I will!

Greetings Fellow BABW Luvers! [Oct. 21st, 2008|07:54 pm]

Thank you, meirin for the vote of confidence.

Yes, I just got the notice myself. The buildabear_luv community has been turned over to me for maintenance. I guess I've posted here a lot or something. ;)

Don't expect any sweeping changes of the userinfo though... I hope to update it, but I do have a bit of a busy calendar. :)

I would like to know from fellow members what they think would help make this a busier list.

I certainly urge folks to boast about their babies/pets, and post pictures. I would ask that larger pictures be put behind lj-cuts to save people's bandwidth.

I think stories about your build-a-bears would be cool too. Again, larger posts behind cuts.

Any other ideas people?

Have any of you seen the mini furry friend that goes with Pumpkin Fun Kitty?
I wanted to get one but was waiting for my birthday gift certificate from build-a-bear and then it was gone from my local build a bear. I'd really love to have one..but it's not on the website so I'm guessing they phased it out or it's sold out?
