Postby patchdolls on Sat May 15, 2010 1:02 pm

I wanted to say hello :wave: To all and to the ones I already know I have missed you :-D . To all the ones I do not know I am very glad to meet you :hat: .

My name is Pat I live in Florida,I have been working with the polymer for about 1 and 1/2 years .I have been taking a break in sculpting .I am very shy :blush: .I feel it is because I have very little education ,so my vocabulary is a very short list. :p_eyes: lol
It was very hard for me to join a forum But after I did join I found so many friends :dance: ,In the Artist world I have found a world of compassionate and understanding people who are always willing to offer a helping hand :angel: .This is how I have been all of my life and I am so grateful to have found a family to be a real part of.

I have been gone since Oct because of my husband health but now everything is GREAT and I would like to be a part of this forum again,I would like to say that it takes me for ever to write.and there is not enough hours in the day for me to write all that I want.also with my limited vocabulary and lack of computer skills I can not write all that I mean .I am just telling all of this to ask that you PLEASE bare with me .This is a big challenge for me ! I do soooo want to be a part of the your world.

I would like to tell you that we love animals too we have a 170 lb Great Dane and a 130 lb Bull Mastiff and 2 cats also 4 parrots they are all our children now that our other kids flew the nest and I still miss them being here all the time .We do have a very busy house with all of our babies .But to us this is Heaven .

Thank you for reading my post and for being the person that you are :angel: . I would not want to be here if it wasn't for all of you :hat:

Big HUGS to all,
Pat

Pat,

I am very happy that you are back with us too. :-) And, extremely happy that Jack is doing great! You know where I stand...love ya to pieces. And, to that, I would not change you for anything in the world. I would rather you be just the way you are...perfect in my eyes. Thank you for being you.

Lots of love and hugs to you my florida friend,
Lori

Hi Zoe, :wave: Thank you for the warm welcome back. It fells good to be home again ! As for sculpting I do have to start my daughter Heather and her Hubby to be Mike ,(Bride and Groom ) I did one in March for her best friend That one took me 3 months to do and it was my worst nightmare :crazy: the legs on the bride just would not stop breaking :weep: .I finally got them done and gave them to the bride and groom I have not tried to sculpt since.. :no:

I did talk to Linda and she gave me advise on how to make them and I know that what she said will work, I just can't seem to find it in me to start them :p_eyes: .I have bought a dome to put them in and the polymer to make them .Now all I need is the courage to make them with, and that I can't seem to buy :sad: lol.

I thought that maybe my family here could give me a swift kick in the behind :rage: and make me do this lol

Thank you Zoe
Hugs,
Pat

hey pat! yes its been a loooooong time. i think about members who use to be regulars and then they are M.I.A. for a while all the time, you included : )
but theres this thing called "life" and sometimes its troubling, or testing us (in my case at the moment)...and we cant be where we want to be or do the things we would like to do. i am very happy to see return to ODA! a warm welcome back!!!
i am very happy also to hear that jack is better and doing well! i am looking forward to your sculpts pat! and dont be shy, as you see everyone loves you and welcomes you back with open arms : )

Hi, Sweetie pie. I am so glad you found your way back into the forum. I hope your share your adorable little BJD pictures with everyone. I love them and I know everyone else will too. You and Jack have been through so much this last year and with your dog having so many health issues I know that your stressed out. I hope to see you get back to sculpting soon, but in the mean time it is will be wonderful for you to be back among friends. We missed you. Big hugs sweetie. Linda

Hello!! dear Pat, yeah welcome back :)
I didn't feel you gone all this time... maybe because I was gone too hahahha
LADY so you have big dogs uh?? they're the kind my hubby will love to have, our big dog recently die :( (old age) I love animals too, I have my Poodle mix, a tiny yorkie, a naughty and mean cat hahaha, a cute dwarf Bunny and salt water fish tank.
I know big dog are much like having a real person living with you (mean for the space they take LOL), I know big dogs are cuddle and loving but gosh I can't take the pop and pee in large amounts hahaha, I miss my big dog she was nice and like to destroy my garden :s but I think we're ok with two doggies, and I wanted to have at least one kid hahhaa so that's something big to think about.
but as I said glad to have yu back, I'm glad to see to many people re-join the ODA.
