Hello, world.  Did you miss me?  I missed you.  Here is what I look like, in case you have forgotten.  :)

~another library photo, of course~ :)

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!
