This morning I woke up to rain and cool weather. I have not been sleeping well and I am finding myself getting up early which is unusual for me. I had planned to make some shredded beef in the crock pot today and was out of some of the things I needed so I knew a trip to the store was in order. So I hopped out of bed and decided I would do one other thing I had been planning but just have not done yet. I took my gym bag and went the the club.. They have a warm therapy pool that is nice to just sit in. I figured to walk in the pool and just enjoy the warm water. It felt really good I am glad I went.
I came home and made the beef and took out the blackberries I had bought on Saturday and made 8 jars of freezer jam. Of course now I am pretty tired and don't have much oompf.
I have tended to over do it lately and am suffering for it today. Healing is such a long process and so frustrating at times. I was hoping to show a bunch of art today but alas what I hope to accomplish and what I end up doing are often miles apart.
I had this tag and it was already colored with some of Tim Holtz Distress ink and then I added a little face on it. I have been inspired by my friend Mystele. She is always saying that you have to play. I have tags and coaster and a slew of small inexpensive canvasses that I plan to paint faces on.
This was a coaster that I got at Chili's. Its pretty small. I found another pack of coasters at Michaels, 8 in a package for a dollar. Those ones are bigger and I have primed them and done backgrounds on some of them but no faces yet. I figure I will play with all these small items and when I am finished I should be able to see improvement. I want to try all sort of different things with them, I think it will be fun to see them all together when I am done. I am also finding small projects easier to accomplish.
What are you creating today?
