Is that what that is, Ginger? I always thought it was bursitis! LOL

Well, considering I had never had any problems with my right shoulder until I did that big set of swaps, I dubbed it "stamper's shoulder" - and anytime I would do the same motions of stamping, cutting cardstock, or putting on adhesive on the back of cardstock, it would hurt again, I think I have a pretty accurate diagnosis! The only thing that would come close was when I had a little truck early in my marriage and it was a standard transmission. Because I'm tiny and short, I had to reach way over for the stick and I would have "driver's shoulder." Other than that, my shoulders are good to go. Won't say the same for my back.

I'm sure that's got to be a medical diagnosis somewhere in the books: Stamper's shoulder.

How about sore ribs from doing 100 (all stamped, many layered) Christmas cards.

Or my hand that is going to be killing me tomorrow because I just finished punching the corners for my sister's 300 wedding invitations and stamping 13 music notes on each (that's 3,900 notes)! Ouch!

Anyone else work up a sweat when stamping for a big swap or holiday and really get sore after...ribs, hand, arm.....or is it just me?

You ain't seen sweat till you've stamped in Florida with no power from a hurricane or four. However, as some dear old somebody said, "Horses sweat, men perspire, ladies merely glow." That glow you saw to the south was me stampin' in Florida! I still manage to work up a sweat in what passes for winter down here. It's hard to position a fan to cool me and not blow my stuff all over the place, especially EP. I refuse to turn on the A/C in January.
