Sharing handmade books, homemade stationery, and general groovy art projects stuff. Beautiful Distractions came from a place inside myself wanting to learn to cope with having to endure living in chronic pain. I distract myself with art and making journals. Living in chronic pain is sometimes an unbearable situation and makes life hard to enjoy. I began to create journals in the hopes of inspiring others to write. It is also my hope that this will help me to open up and begin to share my writing with others.
