The picture of my 1st snow angel it looks like I'm surrounded by 'angels'!!!

'Guardian Angels' Surround Snow Angel

I'm new to the whole 'snow thing'...having been born & raised in sunny southern california. I'm also an insomniac who recently moved into a small senior/disabled apt building on Vashon after a 3yr wait!
I was out & about around 5am yesterday morning during the storm taking pictures of my jewelry that I'm getting ready to sell online for my upcoming fundraising effort in the fluffy crystalized powdery snow when I realized I'd never made a snow angel before!
I thought it would not only be fun for me...but something 'sweet' for my neighbors to wake up to. So I found an empty parking stall & here's one of the resulting pix...
It ended up giving me new hope @ a time when hope is @ an all time low for me!
Just look @ all the 'orbs' surrounding my 'angel' looks like they're guarding it!!! I'm REALLY up against it right now. I have an extremely rare medical condition...the 'surprising gift' from a car accident I was in @ 16yo back in 1976 that suddenly showed up out of nowhere in 2004 that causes fluid (csf) filled cysts/tumors to grow out of control inside my spinal cord. Without a stem cell 'graft' procedure I will continue to slowly & painfully become permanently paralyzed. Right now I'm looking at hospitals in China & Hong Kong for the procedure since I can't find a way to 'legally' have it done in the US anywhere.
So, I'm literally selling my clothes,'the shirt off my back' buy designing a line of t-shirts that features an MRI image of my spinal cord with talk bubbles with 'jokes' inside I'm calling "Talking Back T-shirts" & emptying my jewelry box(es) to raise money.
I've been making what I call ReDesigned jewelry as a hobby for the past few years planning to someday sell online hoping to add to my small fixed income a bit. I collect old and/or broken jewelry, clocks/watches, hardware...almost anything small you can think of really...and 'ReDesign' them into beautiful new 'vintage/chunky/funky/steam punky chic' jewelry I'm calling Something Cool Jewels (thus the snow pix!), I'm hoping to sell with the T-shirts online along with a Facebook fundraiser we're planning to help raise the $50k I need.
We will be setting up accounts with PayPal,, gofundme & other donation sites as well as the Something Cool Jewels & Talking Back T-shirts websites. With any luck it will all come together & work out just fine...I have some wonderful guardian angels & some new hope!!!
