Let’s be real, nobody is that happy right now, and if they are – they are likely lying. Nobody wants to be separated from their families, losing money and jobs, and/ or losing people they love to this wretched plague. Here are a handful of sweet things you can still send someone you love who is miserable and stuck indoors. And obviously, include lots of zoom sessions, face timing, and phone calls to this love package. The prices in this piece range from very affordable to obviously expensive.. but desperate times call for extreme indulgences.

SOMETHING PRACTICAL:

At-Home Covid19 Test, $250 @rootmd.com (Should we have to pay for this? Nope. But some people will want to know from the comfort of their home, and it will be worth it for them to have this.)

At-Home Covid19 Test, $250 @rootmd.com (Should we have to pay for this? Nope. But some people will want to know from the comfort of their home, and it will be worth it for them to have this.)

It’s a pain in the ass to do zoom on your phone or iPad, and since all work/ medical/ schooling/ social calls for months on end will be via zoom or some sort of video conferencing software … it’s a hell of a lot easier to have that all in one on your actual computer. We ordered one of these the second all this started, and it has made life so much easier. We are finding some of our older relatives having a hard time figuring out zoom while in quarantine, and this should make it much easier for them to put it together.

Ive taken a bit of time off of social media… it was really just overwhelming me and that was kicking the anxiety into full effect. Spokewoven had a rough 2019 and I really grappled with throwing in the towel… but I can’t. I love it and I don’t think I’ll ever be able to let go of these experiences or my guardian angels – as I’ve always referred to the pieces I’ve had the opportunity to create. So to start my comeback on social media (or attempt thereof ha) Id like to shout out love to the Campfield sisters. They really have stuck by me for many years now and I’m forever grateful to them. And who wouldn’t want to hang in this room for awhile. 🙏❤️ @hazel_boutique @jennacampfield @kimcampfield
