I know this is a bit personal and kinda deep for a forum, but it’s Christmas and we’re allowed to reminiscence and get a little sappy, right?
I’m facing some weird neurological issues that have really hindered the use of my hands/arms. I’ve been dealing with this crap for almost 9 months and my biggest gift this seasons was finally finding a doctor who could give me some possible answers and hope.
I think things happen for a reason and I believe the Glowforge is one of those things. Having my hands not listen to my brain has been such an incredible struggle for me, but I can’t even imagine how much worse it would be if it had not been for Dan’s magical machine. The Glowforge and this little community has allowed me to continue to create and stay (semi) sane. I count them both as a true blessing this season!
Little things like this make me fall in love with this machine over and over again. Even after a year with my GF I still get all giddy inside when I open the lid to see the idea that was in my head sitting on the tray in front of me. Today’s challenge was to design a badge for a plaque I’m making for a dear friend who is retiring after 32(!) years. I made on older “worn” version and one newer and brighter to see which one I liked better. I know they’re not spectacular or complicated, but I don’t even care 'cause they’re a masterpiece to me! LOL. I’m just damn happy @dan and his team had a dream and made them possible for me. I hope tonight you all have a lot to be grateful for too.
