{ Stampin' Again! }


Good evening ladies!

Well, I'm finally stamping again... the first time in almost four months! I had some bad with drawls for a while there, but I'm doing good now.

If you don't know I had to stop stamping because of a problem with my wrist. I couldn't hold stamps, tools or other supplies with my right hand at all for a while. I also couldn't use my computer because it was too painful which is why I haven't posted much either. My doctor gave me some pain meds, but it only allowed me to use my hand for a couple hours a day which had to be used for working on the computer.

When I was in California my mom put this therapeutic grade essential oil on my wrist and all the pain went away almost immediately and stayed away for about 12 hours. I used more oil and I was completely pain free for the whole weekend. She gave me a little to take home, which I used up over the course of two weeks. I didn't have any pain for about a month after I ran out, then slowly the pain started to come back. I ordered some of the oil for myself and have been pretty much pain free since. I put the oil on every few days and have been trying to be more ergonomically correct with my computer and other things that caused pain. I haven't felt any pain at all for a few weeks now so I figure it's time to start stamping again!

This weekend I cleaned up my desk and started stamping, unfortunately for my faithful blog readers I made a gift for someone who knows about and has checked out my blog recently, so I can't post it yet. Don't worry, I'll be taking pictures and posting my project as soon as I can. Check back because it's a fun, simple project that everyone should try. In the meantime I'm sure I'll be posting some other fun new stuff... I have sooooo many stamp sets I purchased over the summer that I'm dieing to use!

Glad to hear that you are pain free. That can be a real blessing. Could you share the name/source of the product that you used? I have carpel tunnel and don't want to have the surgery. I'll look forward to your next project.
