Cool Living on the grid - the Amsler Grid

Realizing there are quite a few of us here with vision problems! Blurry, spotty, wavy - but we still love getting our craft on! Do you have any tips you want to share? Questions you want to ask? Maybe just want to know you aren't the only one experiencing something - thought it might be nice to start up a thread. If it falls to the bottom, I guess that means no one is interested but I thought I would at least try.

I will start things off I have been dealing with CNV for about 2 years now. Being under the age of 70, not diabetic and living in the region where I live, I was not a candidate so it went un-diagnosed for some time. We think we might have stopped it for now but I will never regain the vision I have lost. Things are not as wavy as they once were but my left eye is pretty much a goner. Rulers help, graph paper helps and clear stamps have been a life changer for me. I ditched 90% of my rubber stamps for clear and my favorite blocks have grid lines on them. Having a stamp positioner has made a world of difference, too.

What about you? How do you keep your layers straight? Are you able to see the lines on your paper cutter? Do you have problems with colors? Is it easier for you to craft with glasses on or do you take them off and get up close and personal with your supplies? Lets help each other out!
