I don't know that I would call myself a real bear collector. I get such enjoyment from creating bears . But, I have a small collection on display that I'd like to share. Most are from swaps I have done with other artist friends. One I bought and 2 were gifts, including a big crocheted bear from a sweet collector & friend. I do cherish each and every one. I also have bear artist ornaments that are tucked away for Christmas. I'll share those when that time comes.
