My name is Alan, I am 74years old, and live in Plymouth UK. I joined because I wanted to learn how to use water soluble oils. It was a very good course and I have enjoyed using the oils. :clap:

Hi Allan!  :wave:    I would have been here sooner to welcome you..... but I've been all at sea!  :boat:   Really! 

 :bigwelcome: to the family. Now I'm back it is official and you are an official illegal adoptee!  :2funny:   I look forward to seeing your masterpieces, and the others too. I am still in the hopeful to try water based oils one day, and will look forward to your guiding hand when I do. Should you have any issues or queries, just sing out and we'll be about to lend a hand. Welcome and have fun!  :clap:
Cheers, Val
