Achy

So once again Schmenky informed me that she was getting sick of not seeing a new post here on the blob.

Thanks for pushing me Schmenk.

I really don’t feel like I’ve got a whole lot to say lately so I guess I’ll try a list… it’s a short one…

1- I’ve been holed up in the ‘studio’ working on a couple of mosaics. As usual my need for realism is forcing me to nip itsy bitsy pieces of glass that makes it take me forever to finish a piece. If I EVER sell one I figure I’ll make about a dollar an hour… *sigh*

2- It’s cold here

3- My ‘studio’ has a cold concrete floor and my legs are achy, my hips are achy, my back is achy, my neck is achy.

Here’s a question for you other artists out there…

What do you do to make working on a project more comfortable?  Do you work at countertop level? Table top level? Do you sit or stand while working?

Any suggestions to make me less achy would be greatly appreciated!

4- I’m sick of being fat! So I’m back to low-carbing and exercising. This should help make me less achy. I hope.

5- Mr C. has the flu or something… he’s achy too.

That’s all I’ve got right now… I’m achy.

    Lis, maybe you should ease into this mosaicing for long stretches…kind of like the reverse of too much exercise, but still will make you achey. Do you have a portable heater?

    Woo Hoo, a new post!!!

    I agree with Deb, a heater would make you cozier. I find doing any craft for long periods makes you somewhat achy. We must be concentrating so hard that we freeze in the same position.
    I would say get up and move around more frequently. Plus switch it up. Stand a bit, sit a bit, snuggle a kitty a bit……

    I agree with Kelly about “switching” — I usually work at tabletop level but frequently stand to cut glass and it gives me a little different perspective on what I’ve been doing (which isn’t much lately!!!) Also agree warmth underneath you would help: a heater, cheap rug, whatever. Cold might be good to put on the “achys” but working in the cold might be contributing to them.

    I have been using a heater. I even lit the woodstove today. I think I’ll spend part of the weekend reworking the surface areas down there. I think raising the actual spot where I’m working will help alot.
