Due to my wrist problems, it has been a few months since I last blogged. Over the last few months I have come to realize just how necessary wrists are for day-to-day living. Wrist movement is involved in turning doorknobs, using scissors, grasping utensils, pressing buttons, etc. Although, my wrists have gotten better over the last few months, I still feel a degree of pain when doing all of these things, and more. Does this mean that I am ready to give up scrapbooking?
No, of course not. :) It just means that I am working on ways to make scrapbooking easier on my wrists. After all, a hobby is no fun if it causes pain. Right now my main strategy is to scrapbook on a smaller scale. Those 12x12" albums are HEAVY, right? So for this year's album I am trying a 5.5x8.5" spiral bound paper pad, which is much lighter and easier on the wrists.
|Supplies: all paper & stickers from October Afternoon (they recently had a warehouse sale); pen from Zig.|
Here is a sample page. So far I have only scrapbooked January and February, and this is a page from February. The photo on the left is a selfie from the Science Museum, and the photo on the right is from Valentine's Day. Even though the paper pad is for mixed media, I have not felt like doing any mixed media work in it yet. Maybe someday. I'll keep you updated. :)
Thanks for stopping by my blog today to catch up with me. Have a great day!
