Artsy Kinda Weekend

I spent most of this weekend on the couch with a nasty headache and vertigo. Instead of letting it ruin my mood though, I got to work. As some of you who’ve been visiting here for a while know,  I’ve had fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, and arthritis for years. The fibro and CFS are so unpredictable that you learn to be flexible. You also learn different ways of keeping yourself occupied. So I took advantage of the downtime and enjoyed watching movies and stand-up comedy on Netflix while I was doing a good bit of knitting and crocheting. I also played with watercolor paint and oil pastels.

Below are some photos of what I did. There is one other thing that I did, but I can’t post it here because it will be going here…the collaborative blog I’m doing with the friend I’ve had for more years than any other. You can check Tabitha’s stuff out here…you really should…she’s super cool. I hope that all of you are doing well, and that you’re doing things which feed your creativity and spirit. I also hope that you enjoy looking through my weekend creations!

I can’t quite seem to get a good shot of this watercolor piece. It looks a lot cooler in person.

  1. I swear I would die if I couldn’t make crafts. It makes me feel so much better as I’m sure it does for you when you are being creative! I hope you feel better soon.

  2. Oh I love the out of focus picture of the water colors, has a very groovy kinda feeling to it. The hat is awsome, love those colors and most importantly is that you took care of yourself.
