My Saturday Soap Box

I have started having a pretty regular flow of traffic. Thank you for stopping by, I really appreciate every one that stops to take a look.

I feel really passionate about Little Boxes Of Joy.

There are so many of us that are hurting for one reason or another. There is someone out there that has lost a life time partner, her best friend or a child, maybe a parent. She's lost her job or broke an arm. Lost a custody battle for no good reason. A single parent with the bills stacking up. Feeling like we are fighting a loosing battle, because we have fought the good fight for so long and our reserve strength is waning. There are a lot of us that have alienated ourselves

How This All Came About or ( In The Beginning) Or (BOX #1)

When I am feeling good I make things. It's just what I do. When I make something for some one I just focus on Love.  It keeps me sane. It helps me recover. When I broke my right wrist almost 4 yrs ago The specialist told me I would only get about 60% usage or mobility back. No! That was unacceptable, I would sneak into my craft room and play. I would intentionally work with glitter and paint. Paying attention to the smallest details. I would create situations where I had to pick up tiny beads, or place small threads just right. I was determined that I was not going to lose the ability to do what drives me.
