Handmade Creations by Shelly – Featured Artisan!

I opened my shop four years ago this August. For the past 10 years I have been selling my products at Craft Fairs and some of my fellow craft friends told me about Etsy. I had never sold my items on-line and it was a big step for me.

Over the past four years I have been so lucky to have been guided by so many wonderful shop owners as to the ins and outs of on-line shops. I am thrilled to say that I sell World Wide.

still not getting anywhere

The pronator teres tunnel syndrome still has it’s grip on me. This has been going on since last year around 4th of July.

This is where my pain sits 


Pronator syndrome is an uncommon clinical syndrome which appears to mimic many of the
symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome (see above).  It refers to compression of the median
nerve to the hand by the pronator teres muscle resulting in pain in the forearm, complaints of
“tiredness” in the foream, clumsiness and weakness of the hand muscles,  and pain and
numbness in the hand in the same pattern as carpal tunnel syndrome.  The median nerve runs
under the pronator teres muscle in the forearm and is the same nerve involved in carpal tunnel
syndrome when entrapped at the wrist.  However, as opposed to carpal tunnel syndrome, there
is a negative Tinel’s sign over the wrist (reproduction of pain by tapping over the wrist), a
positive Tinel’s sign in the forearm, and less pain at night compared with carpal tunnel
syndrome in which there is more pain at night.  The syndrome is caused by inflammation of the
muscle of the forearm responsible for rotating the hand from palm up to palm down position.
Activities such as repetitive elbow movements in chopping wood, rowing a boat, etc. lead to the
onset of the pain although in some patients there is no specific triggering activity.  (http://apmsurgery.com/Diagnoses/Elbow.html)

I was in a cast for nearly 10 weeks in this grueling heat. Still wearing a splint. Some days it’s better and some days it’s just like it was the first day. I have no idea what else to do. Surgery is not an option for me, don’t want to start cutting around on my arm.

So I do knit a few stitches, surf the internet a little and do normal household chores with the hope this will get better some day again.

 Hey there! My name is Cari, and I have a love for crochet (creating and teaching). One of my goals is to show that anyone can create useful and beautiful items they believe are beyond their wildest dreams. My jewelry design, Braidlets®, is a prime example

To begin my story I want to… share some personal info. I’m a native Southern California girl, married toJohn (retired Atty. and Veteran Combat Corpsman with Fox 2/7 1968) who supports my passion 110%.
