Middle of the night Madness

I've been creating in the middle of the night. I haven't really had any sleep for about a week now. I grab an hour here and there. Why? well my hubby is very ill and I have to tend to him, the nine fur babies need to be taken care of and I'm in horrible pain in my legs... I'm whining away today aren't I. LOL  I should be qualifying for a wheel chair soon and that will help the leg problem. Even though I have problems up the ying yang I still feel the need to create. As I had mentioned in a previous post it's my therapy. My connection to God and all things spiritual.

 I am in this fabulous Workshop run by Junelle Jacobsen and Christy Tomlinson. I come upstairs to my studio about midnight and work until 7 or 8 in the morning .. Watching the videos and working on the projects. This particular project taught by Christy had me in tears this morning. She spoke about how she needed Courage for a particular problem she had gone through.. If there is anything I need right now is exactly that. The Courage to go on!! The courage to make a major decision in my life and the courage to keep my faith how little it is right now in all the adversity I'm going through.. I won't bore you with all the details but it isn't pretty. 

so anywho here is the project that I finished about 7 this morning. 

This Quote I found is so meaningful to me. That's how I feel like I'm holding on by the skin of my teeth.
Like that Cat hanging from the tree from his claws... I feel that I'm going to fall but each day I hold on for one more  minute, one more day.. Where I'm getting the Courage I don't know. I'm just afraid that soon if I don't get some relief I might let go. 

I created this on an 8x10 mat board using Acrylics, Designer Paper, Stamps, Rub on and Alcohol Inks

I'm involved in the Challenge "Create Everyday" so this is today's entry. I did have one for yesterday but was way to tired to climb the stairs to my studio .. I will post it tomorrow. 

I'm also joining Paint Party Friday this week..

Head on over to both blogs to see some fabulous work.

Hey!! Thanks for listening to me whine once again and stopping by.


  1. Whine away ... I wish there was something I could do, even though we are complete strangers to each other.

    Keep creating! Don't let go.

  2. Wow...your page is so very moving. You are courageous. I hope you get a break and get some time to refill your well soon.

  3. What an amazing quote and artwork about courage!
    Very moving.
    Happy PPF!!

  4. Sounds like you have something to "whine" about... but also sounds like you have something to be proud of too! Producing this bright and beautiful art:)

  5. My G-d woman you have a ton on your plate and yet you create these awesome pieces of art. Bravo and I bow to you! My back is out a bit today and I hurt, but I know it is temporary. I am so sorry you have greater things to deal with. Wishing you well. And your dear husband too. HPPF!

  6. Yes, That sentiment is so true. Love the butterfly and the colors in your creation. Can you make some butterflies for the store for us to use on the challenge blog? Thanks for sharing. Edwina Brown

  7. I think creating pages/art is a GREAT way to get through the night (although I hope you are getting some sleep). In bad times, too many thoughts wander around in the middle of the night, and I've found that some paint/ink/paper is a great cure. Even if just for that moment. Good luck!!

  8. Your page is beautiful. I wish I could give you sleep, as when we are tired things just seem to compound. Peace for you, and your husband.
    Happy PPF
