Arthritis and Creating

Yes, I have Osteoartritis but I still am trying to enjoy life and bring love to others. Some days it is not good, some days good. I create cards, lots of cards. I am trying to use my arthiritc hands everyday, yes, I fumble, I drop and sometimes cry.

I have to do things in spurts, no marathon creating. My life has changed greatly. No fun but I have to deal with it cause there is no cure.

The above card is so easy and fun. It is from the Sentimental Bundle.

I have to watch my pennies and I was blessed with the lovely paper in a sample pack that you get when you join Stampin Up during celebration.
