i’ve sometimes mentioned that i have severe RA (rheumatoid arthritis), an aggressive form that has had quite an impact on my daily life for almost 20 years now. initially, i resisted making any changes to my activity level, but in time i had no choice but to accept my limitations because of lack of mobility, deformed joints, pain, surgeries, etc.
while i enjoy my creative outlet/card making, there are some tools or techniques that are difficult to use and i wish the manufacturers would consider principles of universal access. i have to balance play with rest, which means i create and post when i can and sometimes i colour an image over the course of a few days. i also don’t comment as often as people expect me to or as much as i wish i could, even though i enjoy my reader updates.
today, i have a new assistive device that should make getting out and about easier; it’s a rollator that replaces my cane and since i had my choice of ten colours, i chose kiwi green – it matches my twinkling H2O kiwi. :)thanks for popping by.
