i’ve had severe Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) for twenty years now and it forced me to give up on all my creative outlets, but i was happy to discover i could stamp and watercolour images, my favourite part of card making.
people sometimes marvel at how i can create with my hands but i do avoid some techniques and/or products that are too difficult for me. and, sometimes i create slowly because of fatigue and/or pain.
my product reviews raise awareness about some of the useable products that work for me and the need to incorporate universal design.
as an advocate, i know the biggest barrier to people with disabilities is the attitudinal barrier and, unfortunately, a stereotypical attitude regarding the abilities of people with disabilities.
