That is a fabulous flower, luvhair, and it makes me smile, so it does exude positivity! :-D

Is it made from paper? Or is it made with wood? And you did all the painting? Is this craft class from a business that specializes in this? I have seen a few businesses that have craft classes that specialize in candle making, jewelry making, but they are specifically for children and birthday parties. There are a few quilt groups available but they are through the senior citizen center, and the church. :-D

Keep Smiling,

Carole :-D

As long as you take enjoyment from making things, then it is worth it. Making a little money from selling your creations, well that's a bonus! :-D

thats just beautiful, luvhair, it's just wonderful you've found an outlet that makes you happy. you should be proud. i always loved crafts did so much different types years ago. however now my hands don't work very well. writing , dropping , typing lol, but my outlet is water aerobics. i live in SC so ever, morning i can i go for an hour in our community pool and in the winter the town pool. we each have to do something positive to fill our lives. i'm glad you found yours.

we all have our drawbacks in different ways, but glad you have a good one for you . i'm fortunate to be able to exercise without a problem with chlorinated water. otherwise i'd get no exercise at all. and you meet so many really nice people and forge friendships

I am so glad to see you standing, holding your artwork, and (more importantly) out of your home and interacting with supporting folks. This is such good news!!! Keep up the sharing with us. When you go silent, I worry about you. Here's to more happy vibes and positivity! A bouquet of them!

You don't need full sun to deepen skin tone. Try it again when there is partial sun...even a cloudy day can activate the cells that make us tan. Sitting in full sun is not something most of us can do...especially for any length of time. Even standing still to chat with a neighbor, I have to move into the shade before I get overheated. If I remember my science, it is the ultraviolet rays that created tanning...and these will penetrate cloud cover. I hope you recover quickly!

MS is why I started being creative again. Dr said I needed OT and insurance wouldn't cover it at the time. So I came up with my own OT!

Hi luvhair

I've been reading about your struggles dealing with your MS. MS really is hard and really changes your life so drastically. I'm 56 and it hit me in my early 40s. Never saw it coming. I new something was not right but I'm tough and have lived with terrible migraines since 12 years old. I married at 21 and had raised 3 children and always worked toughing it out. Then had optic nueritus lost 3 jobs from being sick and weak then the fatigue came numbness tingling then went paralized. Well then lost friends and relatives stopped too.

I just can't believe how you get treated because of your MS disease and IT'S symptoms complications but you're still alive and breathing. You might not talk right think right walk right but you're still alive breathing and NO ONE wants to be with you! They DON'T want to hear about how bad you feel physically emotional or spiritually. It's like YOU don't matter ANYMORE. You're too much work for them to associate with ANYMORE. Where is the love from people to care enough. I get it! It has happened to me in all forms. But DON'T give up! Never give up. Their are those few who truly love and care for others. And I have my Lord.

Blessings to YOU becky
