I am disabled mentally and emotionally with 4 chemical imbalances and one personality disorder. I have been stressed 24/7 since moving to the East Coast on my 16th birthday. That was 11 years and almost 2 mos ago.
I started crafting when I was age 5. It was not until I was 14 that I discovered that it could be therapeutic when I made hats for a hospital NICU. This really took effect when I was 20 and learned to cross stitch. I used this to soothe my mind and then on July 30th 2010, the worst day of my life came happened. My dear sweet Grandma Judy died from a 2 brain bleed hemorrhage just a few weeks shy of turning 68.
She was my only family that mattered to me. Since then I have been crocheting baby things non stop. I found a charity that needs my stuff real bad. I also put my skills as a webmaster to use and donated my server and the cobp.org name to the charity.
Crafting is keeping my mind off G'ma and helping innocent children in need with my items.
