For Mother's & Daughter's:
My daughter and I recently enjoyed a fun night out together at a finger painting class facilitated by NativeSelf Care Coach, I A.M. We had such a great time learning about ourselves while finger painting together. The class was fun and insightful. I would recommend your heArt workshop to people of all ages. It was a great bonding experience with my daughter. Thank you I A.M. for guiding us through the finger painting process. We discovered things about ourselves individually and collectively.
I love it! I can really smell the peppermint and it’s not greasy like my other one! I can feel the cooling sensations of the peppermint and
I can feel the softness versus just feeling greasy after rubbing for so long and then wiping the excess with a towel! I take my body butter very seriously lol. I have a huge collection of body butters, creams and lotions. I try it and if I don’t like It I give it away. Haha. I love the brand I was using, but I’m in love with another now! I can’t wait to have a migraine to come and use the butta on my neck!

When I want to relax I finger paint a very close friend I A.M. shared with me and it has been awesome experience. So a Few weeks ago my sister Clark Stephanie and I had our own paint and sip. I Love her so much. I’m sharing her creation there are no mistakes in ART. Beautiful no stencil just what in your heart at the time. Representing her Team Who Dat!!
It honestly took me a while to process what I experienced on Friday. When I was a kid I used to like to paint, but when I loss my sight in my late teens I thought that painting was never going to be accessible to me anymore. Painting for me was a way to express my emotions and cope with life. Thus, believing that I could not longer paint made me feel incomplete. It was not until BlindConnect put together a self-care/painting workshop that I was able to reconnect with that part of me. The workshop not only helped me to realize that blindness does not have to limit my creativity, but also it allowed me to process many thoughts and emotions that I was struggling with. I want to thank all the wonderful staff and volunteers off BlindConnect for your great mission and vision.
You are absolutely perfect at what you do. I was standing in the back of the room while you were facilitating crying my eyes out. It was incredible, beautiful, moving and powerful! I love you and we are super honored that you have chosen to give back with BlindConnect as your cause.
