We're On (the) Line!


Brainstorm Studio is up and running as of yesterday! And we've even had our first sale!! Very exciting!!! I believe that this shop will help Lisbeth in many ways. Because of her traumatic brain injury and chronic seizures, Lis has high anxiety about being out and about in the world, and is not capable of working a daily job like some folks with special needs are able to do. She suffers from depression, too, and it is our hope that her involvement in this project will help her spiritually and emotionally, as well as financially (I also want to look into supporting epilepsy research with a percentage of the proceeds....). Lisbeth does enjoy working at home, though, where she feels safe and secure with her one-on-one helpers (God Bless them, everyone!) and her little cat, Milkweed, by her side. We are working to make a more organized space for Lisbeth in her home to create her snowflakes - an official studio space! And I have started a blog for Lis where we can document the progress of her business, and where she can share some of her feelings and stories!



We are off to a good start!
