life storyWhen I think of myself as a little girl, my first thought usually turns to the age of three and a bare-floored living room with ugly olive-green antique chairs randomnly placed about. A pale ocean spreads ahead into an oblivion I would like to be swallowed up in. My father gets drunk and high as often as he can. I also have vague memories of childhood friends, of Michael Jackson and Disney, of barbies and kens. I had always thought I would get to be one of those teen-aged girls sitting on the floor having a slumber party, laughing and talking about boys. I was mistaken.
My first schooling experience, other than kindergarten, which I was home schooled for, was first a public one, then a private one. Next, a different private school. Before I know it, my father (a pitiful name for a man who flips off his wife and daughter as he's carried off by the MP's) is gone, and we are on our own. A blur of school and various experiences are collected as shells on a beach. There will be no more swim
Free Plushie Patterns Online
Here's a collection of links to sites outside of DeviantArt where you can find free plushie patterns. There are well over two hundred choices, so you're sure to find something you like.
However, if you can't find exactly what you're looking for, try adapting one of the patterns. For example, a tiger can easily be turned into a lion, an elephant into a woolly mammoth, an elf into a goblin, or combine the upper half of a mermaid with the lower half of a pony to get a centaur.
