Musical Flower Card-Maren Benedict
I know these very detailed instructions are not a problem for most. But I have fibromyalgia and visual problems and I could not follow it. With the way fibro’s brain is wired we need a visual presentation about how to construct the flower. After I received the magazine I so wanted to make this flower embellishment. I even went to the website hoping I could fine a visual explanation of flower construction but one was not available. I am very limited by my disability in what I can do. Even with scrapbooking and card making the pain issues of sitting or trying to stand, using my fingers and hands is to much and I have to quit. The short term memory loss, confusion, visual problems and multiple mistakes and do over’s increase my frustration level so much that I have to back off and quit. Of course this makes me so mad especially if I want that card to go out. But I love doing it and I refuse to give in to my disease. So will you remember that we are out here and break down some of your more beautiful yet complicated creations for us? If not in your magazine on line then. Thanks.
