Fun at the Beaumont Buddy Walk

My  friends at Quality Care Services and I had a great time  at the Beaumont Buddy Walk this year! The Buddy Walk is a celebration of the many abilities and accomplishments of people with Down syndrome. This is an annual event hosted by ARC to help support many local projects and events for people with Down Syndrome and their families. This years event was held on  Saturday Oct. 22  at the Event Centre,  located at 700 Crockett Street in Beaumont.

Lending a Helping Hand to My Friends

One of my favorite places is The ARC of Beaumont. ARC celebrates the lives of those with intellectual and developmental disabilities like myself and others with Down’s Syndrome. ARC has helped me so much that when I started doing my art I decided I would give back to them. My way of doing that is making precious magnet boxes for all the new little down’s syndrome babies. I make the boxes and then give them to ARC to give to new babies. I hope that when they get older and see the boxes I created for them it will inspire them to find what they love and fill their lives with happiness.

I have a wonderful friend, angel, mentor and “partner in art” whose name is Ginny. Ginny and I do everything together. We have a special bond that nothing could ever break. We help each other and push each other to be more creative. Ginny helps me create all of these beautiful magnet boxes for the ARC babies. Giving back is a wonderful thing and makes me smile. ARC helps others like me know how special we are. They help give our lives meaning and fill our lives with fun things to do. Lending a helping hand makes life worth living.

Welcome to My Website!

Hi!  My name is Patty Carlisle! Welcome to my website. This is my “playhouse” for all my works of art. A place for me to share with you what I’ve been creating and what I’m doing. I will be updating with new art all year long.

I look forward to giving you some insight to how creative people with down’s syndrome can be when given a loving and supportive environment that allows them to blossom. Having down’s syndrome doesn’t have to mean you have no life. You can fill it with anything you like.

I like art and people so I fill mine with both. My home is full of love and laughter and my BFF, better known as my partner in art Ginny helps me to create some wonderful pieces that I love to share with friends and family. I even make pretty little magnet boxes that I donate to ARC for all the new little babies with down’s syndrome. That makes me happy.

I hope you enjoy my art and if you would like me to make something special just let me know.
