self pity warning

Posted in July tagged , , at 2:39 pm by viewfromthisdesk

I’ve just made a card for someone.  It took me nearly an hour which is stupid for what is actually is, but I still stuck with it.  And it looks reasonably straight and I’m sure the spelling is correct but it HURT.  My fingers, every bone and joint and stretchy thing are screaming at me.  I hate this.  And I’m torn, because I loved designing and making this one.  It’s the first card in about three years.  I feel proud about it and I hope the recipient loves it (not even going down the road of what if they hate it?!!) but is this physical pain worth the emotional smugness?

 

I don’t want to sell/throw/donate all my crafting stuff but if I can’t make like I used to, then shouldn’t I just forget that previous life?
