Hello again, everyone!
« on: March 02, 2016, 05:48:45 PM »
I'm sorry I haven't been around.  I didn't want to just turn up again without a bit of an explanation and to introduce myself again.

I'm Alan from Cumbria (England).  I started working with Polymer Clay over a year ago with the hope of starting my own little business and joined the forum at the same time.  Sadly, my wife was very ill last year and it was a hectic year with our daughter having started university and so everything was put on hold while we tried to get back to some form of normality.

My wife is well again now and daughter (Emma, as it happens  :) ) is doing well at college and so I've started my polymer clay things again with a vengeance.  I look forward to being more active on the forum and hope to learn a lot - and hopefully give back in return.

It's great to be here again.  :)

Hello again Alan  :)

So glad to hear your wife's better now and things have settled down..
Losing yourself in polymer clay will be just the thing you need!

Thank you so much, Carrie!  I have found that working with polyclay is very addictive, but also very therapeutic. It's just nice to be on the move again and to be back to some kind of normality. :-)
