Right now there are many of us with dealing with anxiety and fear of what the unknown is. We have to remember what is happening around us is only temporary. Today I was sitting in my studio and thinking of ways to make a positive impact during this time so I will be helping out the elderly people in my neighborhood. I also created this fun mask 😷 to wear! We want to avoid touching our mouth and nose as much as possible, so why not do it in style? Please stay positive ♥️♥️♥️ Disclaimer- masks will not fully protect from any illnesses. Make sure we are still taking all steps necessary including washing your hands and self-isolating.
