loom bands have been around since 2013 lol i only discovered them last year in july my twin brother shay bought me my first ever kit and i said to him what the hell is this and what am i meant to do with it,shay's reply was they are loom bands sis you can make bracelets,watches,rings,earrings ect with them i tossed them in a closet and left them there until november last year when i came out of hospital after having surgery to remove half of my lungs after they'd collapsed due to a massive infection and i was laid on the couch one cold wet november afternoon so i asked nicky to get them out and i'd give them a try and i've been hooked ever since oh what a very bad pun that is lol

Neave,

LOL!  Laughing  I think that's fantastic, though, to go from non-interest to creating great art!  Kiss

Of course, it was very new and who would ever think something like that could make art?  If you'd told me about loom bands a few years ago, I would have thought that was weird.  Bands...on a loom?  No way!

Glad you were able to find something to take your mind off of things...it must have been awful to have the surgery like that.  Cry  And it's wonderful how you've persevered to get to the point of making 3D items!  Kiss

it was awful they nearly lost me 3 times and to be honest because i can no longer work because of my health looming is the only thing that keeps me sane and it's so theraputic for me

Neave,

Wow, three times and you still stuck with it...that's fantastic!  Kiss  Most people would probably have quit by then.  Glad you worked it all out!  Kiss

I think everyone needs something to keep from getting stressed out...and with health, there's so much "hurry up and wait," and always long-term things, at that, so I can't imagine how anyone can go through all of it without doing something interesting!  I feel the same way about beadweaving, knitting and crocheting (and cross stitching, occasionally).  LOL, it's like quick de-stressing!  Kiss

Neave,

It doesn't sound strange to me at all.  Kiss

It's wonderful that you've found a productive, creative outlet.  Kiss  It's so hard to be dependent on somone, though I'm very glad you've got Nicky.  Kiss  Sounds like a real keeper, so just relax and keep that amazing loomwork going!  Kiss
