I’m disabled (& dislike that word), I live in chronic pain and housebound. I found that while working on these crosses I am so focused in the work that my brain doesn’t process the pain signals, this is a Godsend, I only noticed one day while making crosses that I had missed a dose of morphine and my pain was tolerable. I thank God for this blessing and that is when I had an epiphany, I should focus my crafts in a way that glorifies God. I purchased some cross patterns and enlarged them to range between 6” and 7”. I have also drawn some of my own patterns. I also researched names, styles and meanings for most crosses. I spend so much time creating each cross with the cutting, sanding, staining, varnishing & sanding on two to three coats, that if I were to charge an hourly wage it would be prohibitive. I came up with the $7 and up prices to cover the cost of materials so that I may continue to create items that are appreciated.
I hope you enjoy my art as much as I enjoy making them.
