First of all, thank you for taking time to read this.
I am a mom of four,I raised all of them on my own with no child support, (I had A some help from my mom till she passed away) despite the lack of money and the struggles and hardships along the way, they all grew to be good members of society, they all have professional jobs and families now.
I have 8 grandkids. We are all pretty close, no one does drugs, drinks steals or has ever been arrested and they all generally good people. So I think I did ok .
i have some health issues now and my body is failing me. I am in chronic pain with EDS, fibromyalgia, scoliosis, plantar fasciitis and a heart condition. I am on partial disability and work from home to make up the difference.
My husband is gone 10+ hours a day for work and the commute. We make enough money to be ok.
I would love to have a “circuit maker“ machine and t-shirt press that also does hats and cups.
i have a lot of time on my hands but cannot do a whole lot because my body won’t allow it anymore . My doctor says I will eventually e in a wheelchair so I need to find new ways to stay busy and happy. Depression is always trying to take over since I can no longer hike, garden much or help others like I use to.
I want to make gifts for my family and I want to help the community a bit. I use to have a store and loved donating and helping people. I feel if I can make things to sell, I can make enough to buy more materials and to donate to places like our humane society and the meals on wheels program and to our homeless shelters. Maybe make uplifting things to donate also to give people encouragement in hard times.
I had to depend on the generosity of strangers when I left my abusive relationship and started over with my kids in a secluded camp ground, I worked hard to get a new start and some people gave me a hand up. I want to keep doing things for others but can’t work my store any longer. I have no extra cash. And I have been researching the Cricut machines and tools and know I can make a little difference. I have been saving money from selling eggs from my chickens to be able to buy these things but it is taking so long…..
i am kind of embarrassed to even ask for help with this because it’s not a real “need” just kind of a dream.
we are not poor. We are not in debt and we have no small children. No pets in need. It’s just me desiring something to do and to be creative and spread a little joy for my self and others. But it is a cost I am having a hard time putting together to get it started. any amount will really help and be a blessing .
