I never knew how much truth was in the statement that I joke about: "Stamping is my therapy." I have not stamped for 10 days, and I can't believe what an effect that has had on me! It's different when I choose not to, but still can. But not being able to due to physical limitations is a whole different ball game. So, kudos to those of you with physical disabilities that continue to work to create!
I was kind of a basket case yesterday - my hand and elbow seem to be healing at a snail's pace and I was very discouraged, my sister arrived from Arizona, and my mom is in the hospital due to a shoulder replacement and left-hand carpal tunnel surgery on Friday. My daughter was having a tough day, and I can't do my laundry. (Now that shows a definite messed up mind. HA)
So today I decided I had to try one-handed creating. It's different than my usual style, and definitely not a lot of "stamping" and layers, but it made me happy so it served its purpose! Since I can only use one hand, I decided using a digital image would be the place to start.
The word art is by TLC Creations. I had these puffy pillow stickers (Spaghetti by K & Co.) in my stash, and matched them up with Echo Park's Summer Days DP and some fun pink buttons. Very simple design but kinda hard to do one handed. But hey - I am in a better mood, and that was the whole idea! (Slow typing this post as well, but I am happy I can do it at all!)
I take so many things for granted - opening any kind of screw top (thank you pump and spray bottles!), pulling up and fastening jeans, putting mousse in my hair, cleaning my left ear, driving a car, exercising.....so many things.......soon I hope!
Oh - if you love ribbon, head over to the Really Reasonable Ribbon blog - they have a huge giveaway going on right now!
Thanks for stopping by today! And a HUGE thank you to my stamping friends that have sent me cards, and little pick-me-ups! I hope to post some of those things here soon. Have a wonderful day~!
