OK, so I am a little behind in updating my blog, so first let me start with a couple more journal pages I finished while answering the hard questions in Creative Awakenings. First is my things I would wish for if all that was involved is a wave of magic wand. While going through an old magazine, I found the Fairy Godmother. The image was perfect.I having the best time with cutting the edges of my journal pages.
So much fun, in fact, that I cut this one into a lightbulb. I loved it and then I turned it over and realized that I would have to come up with something lightbulb shaped for the back page. And then EPIPHANY! I got it. But you'll have to wait a bit before I show you what it is.
I had a great day on Thursday. I spent the day with Kate in her home. We worked on our journals, we looked through her beautiful journals and collaboration books, learned about Copic markers from Kate's super talented daughter, I met her critters, saw her flags, and had an all around great art day.
Here's Kate and I in her studio. Check out that wall of stamps behind us. Wowzer! Also, please disregard my very round Prednisone face. Argh!!!
Here is Kate's page that she worked on . It was lovely. You can see more of her art HERE.
And here's what I ended up putting on the back of my lightbulb page:
That's right! A question mark. I made it while at Kate's house and I am LOVING that irregular stack of pages that I am making. They just look so cool together. I had a great day with Kate and I hope to do it again really soon. Thank you Kate!
I have been battling a cough for the last couple of weeks and decided on Friday afternoon, that I should probably go in and have it checked out. I have been hesitating because that would have been my third visit to the doctor in a month and that is just crazy! Can you believe I have pneumonia?!!! I just want to bang my head. Apparently when you have an auto-immune issue, little bugs become big bugs rather easily. Now I know. I had to have a shot on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday which brings my grand total of visits in a month to 5! Crazy. And that doesn't even count the opthamologist and the LSA scan and the rheumatologist. I didn't see a doctor that much even when I was pregnant! Gratefully my visit with the rheumatologist is tomorrow. I have been waiting for a month to see him and get an "official" diagnosis and hopefully be on the road to feeling better. I'm tired of living in limbo. I know that tomorrow, my life will change forever, but I'm ready to know...knowledge is power, and I have felt powerless for far too long.
