These are hands-free crafts made with love

“I got Sepsis ten years ago. It was an overreaction to an infection in my body and made my vital organs want to shut down. It happened so fast. I was a restaurant manager at O’Charley’s. I couldn’t go to work one day and passed out. They took me to the hospital and they had to shut off circulation to other body parts to keep me alive. I woke up with no hands and no legs. I am a quadruple amputee. I was 35 at the time and it was months before I came to. I just wanted to get back to work. I was a determined person and was very independent. I still am. I tried to go back to the restaurant business but that didn’t work. I met my husband online and we married two years ago. I started making these wooden flowers. I made the flowers for our wedding and catered our wedding. I work from home and use a cuff and a bamboo stick to make the flowers. It is intense to make flowers and they are very delicate.  I love designing them and making them as real as possible. I have only been in business for a year, but I now do custom designs and weddings. I made the bouquets and boutonnieres for The Royal Closet at the Pillars that provided dresses for kids who wanted to go to prom. These flowers make people happy and it is all I want to do. The name is Love by JM and the motto is share the love. These are hands-free crafts made with love.”
