Why Fiber+Blood? Well if you have cruised around the website a bit you’ll see that I am a type one diabetic mom to a fabulous 6 year old boy! My fiber art journey was renewed when I found knotting again in the year after Ocean’s diagnoses at 2 years old. It became a life changing way to manage the intensity of this life and before I knew it I had found my true calling in life as a fiber artist!
You will see some of Ocean’s paintings under the oceans art tab. We introduced Ocean to painting right around the time of his diabetes diagnosis as a way to help him process the trauma he had gone through and was continue to go through on a daily basis. All proceeds from Oceans art go to beyond type one for diabetic research and education and ultimately in search for a cure.
You can also check my out my blog for real mom talk about everything from mom guilt to perfectionism and of course don’t forget the reason most of you are here - Macrame!!! Let me help fulfill your boho dreams my friends! Your support helps me continue to stay home with Ocean to keep a close eye on him as we continue to navigate this unexpected yet quite amazing life.
Please feel welcome to messsage me with any questions or comments on anything from diabetes to macrame - these two communities are amazing and I thank the heavens every day for all of your support!
Blessings on all of you,
