The Christmas wreath

I’ve never made a real one so I booked myself into a wreath-making workshop last night. There’s a surprising amount of labour involved and I hadn’t realised how much the damage to my hand would affect this as I haven’t done anything this ‘hands on’ for some time. It looked fine in the end so I was pleased about that.

You have to bundle up balls of moss really tight and bind them one by one with string around a wire loop. This really made my thumb hurt and someone had to do it for me. Then again a friend had to cut my wire with scissors as it was difficult for me. Tying the decorations on with wire was manageable but left my thumb very sore by the end of the evening. I can’t change what has happened so I have to get on with what I can and try not think too much about my hand. It is hard not to feel a little broken at times like these.

I’ve been ‘treading water’ recently in terms of my Privvi work. I’m hoping to recharge my enthusiasm and approach and start the New Year with a fresh outlook. All the boxes are packed and ready to go.

My name's Anna and I decided to write a blog following an accident last year. I will never regain the full use of my right hand and an operation led to additional, ongoing complications. This is about my struggles following the accident and the challenges of trying to save the use I still have in my hand. It’s a story about my product and why it appeared in my head one day because of my traumatic experiences. How I took that positive vision and worked towards bringing it to life. The challenges of putting it together and getting it to the market whilst still undergoing debilitating, ongoing treatment. It's a journey you can share with me. I'm not there yet...
