A table full of happiness


My table full of happiness.

I can no longer fuss with pretty clothes, pretty hair, pretty handbags, pretty makeup. Now I fuss with pretty papers turning them into pretty cards and that’s how I get my dose of pretty.

    Your cards ARE very pretty. Since becoming more in touch with the online chronic pain community I’ve encountered so many warriors with such talent ~ sewing, knitting, gluing, writing, sketching, creating. Beautiful distraction, with beautiful results.

      Thank you for your kind words. I think when you aren’t well it does give me sometime to focus on. I am in day 8 of an awful flare hardly out of bed. I still walk past my table to see if I can just do something tiny. It makes me feel better to achieve something small. Do you have a crafty outlet too?

        I don’t actually, but am starting to wish I did! I used to make jewelry out of natural stone beads, but the detail work was tough on my eyes / head so I stopped. I do love to read. And sleep. :/

        Yes I understand that. I was an obsessed knitter at the ripe old age of 8. Really disappointed when I couldn’t hold the needles any longer. It really is quite amazing how much I can do with card making with 1 hand and the dicky hand as a guide. Maybe you can find some other alternative too. Speaking honestly it has made a huge difference to my mental state. Ha I do a lot of reading and sleeping too. Sleeping are hours that I don’t have to confront the pain. I imagine that might be the same for you. Hoping today is a relatively good one for you.

        Oh I also wanted to ask you if it was a technical reason why you moved your blog to WordPress. If that’s a personal question please disregard. I have some issues with WordPress and thought about moving to Blogger

        I find WordPress difficult to use – not user friendly at all! However, there is *no* community on Blogger. No one comments on or “likes” your posts – no one follows you or subscribes. My husband had a WordPress blog and noticed the prevalence of people with chronic pain and how supportive everyone was. That’s why I moved. But John has since moved from WordPress bc he had issues too (with it being difficult technically). So if you are doing your blog for awareness and support I would not move it. If you are just doing it for yourself, Blogger might be a good choice. It is definitely simpler and easier. For example I still haven’t learned how to post a video from YouTube in WordPress!

    Well that is true that WordPress is much more of a community and in the end I think that’s what I really want, some feedback, or even others to know that they are not alone and that we can hopefully help each other through the bad days. I guess WordPress it is then 🙂
