PFATT Article in "Prims"

Something a Bit Different for Me......
Change can either be a friend or a foe....not all of us like it.  I,  for one,  enjoy it.  I get that same surge of  excitement when I change up an old recipe and the recipe works!  Change has been a constant companion in my life and I've either had to embrace it or find a new life....  This is why I wanted to try my hand at writing for "Prims" instead of designing.  I couldn't have found a better topic than my PFATT sisters!

Not many online groups weather the difference in personalities and the vast exchange of ideas but PFATT seem to have the right ingredients to make it work since it has been around for 12 years with many of same members that had joined back then.  It had originally been set up as an EBAY group but now you can find us on Facebook.

This was an easy topic to write about....but alas like all articles mine was edited down to fit the space and much of the humor and unique kinship was whittled down.  Still,  the article is a good read and a look inside of this amazing group of women who have endured and excelled beyond their expectations in business, art and friendship.

I, for one, am a better person for knowing them and count them as some of the best people I know. 
We have all watched each one of us grow in our art and business.  Many of the women are licensed with reputable companies and our art can actually support some of us which is no easy feat!  The name "PFATT" has become a well known acronym that insures a collector of "Folk Art" a certain quality.  Yes... we have high standards but it's those standards that keeps PFATT so reputable and sought after!  It definitely makes me work harder on my craft....
This group has seen many happy and fun filled days especially at our annual "PFATT-Fests" but with the good comes a huge helping
of bad and this is when strength in numbers is at its best.  We have lost fellow PFATT Sisters to death and seen tragedy raise its ugly head and almost devour a sister!  Without question we have risen to the situation and been there offering love, compassion and strength.  This is an amazing group of diverse and energetic women who I am so proud to be associated with.  Read more about them in the newest issue of "Prims" magazine........
