Hi Everyone……………………………

Sooooooo sorry….but the time has come to find a new host for this fabulous group!!!
My strength has not been the same since heart surgery in October and many more outside demands have
planted themselves into my life. I am NOT leaving RB, just narrowing down my groups to One…co-host at ART UNIVERSE (PAINT BOOK)

This notice is dated: July 28, 2011
PLEASE BMAIL ME if you are interested. If there is no response by Sunday…..July 31, 2011, I will close the group & inform RB. I certainly hope this does not happen….
you guys are such an outstanding bunch of members….LOVE YOU ALL!

I have thoroughly enjoyed showcasing your outstanding art pieces!
Please keep them coming!
May blessings continue for you and your families.

Pat, you are such a shining star on Redbubble. I’m glad to hear you are not leaving us and I certainly understand needing to cut back a bit. Your health comes first. To say that the group won’t be the same is such an understatement, we shall miss you terribly but wish you the best!

Indeed a shining star you are as quoted above Pat. Sorry to hear you are not well and I hope (as we all do) that you recover and get well again soon. Thank you for your dedication to this group and all of us. Health does come first.

Oh no Pat…not again. Don’t think that leaves any groups that I’ll be with you….unless I whip up enough textured images to join Grunge It Up, but that could take a while. Anyway, understand your reasoning and my thoughts & prayers are with you. Sure hope you find a suitable host by Sunday and if so, that he/she are as qualified as you for selecting quality featured images. Will miss you Sweety.
Hugs & XXX, ♥♥Ron♥♥

Darling Pat;
I am so sorry to hear that you will not be caring for this group any longer. You have made it the very BEST group on the Bubble. Perhaps you could turn the responsibilities over to someone else, then come back on occasion to be a ‘guest host’ With that being said, please know that all of us will understand that you must take care of your health first and foremost. Your family and loved ones need to be your first concern and just know what a beautiful impression you have placed on all of us who have enjoyed your wonderful featured pages. Someone out there has some very big shoes to fill.
Love and Hugs, Marjie
