I Know Artists Are Supposed to Suffer....

Sometimes I wonder if I actually have a brain! Yesterday I had to return some books to the library so I decided to look for a few art books that might have some images I could use (not to sell!) in an altered book project I'm working on.

This was me heading up to check out with several very large, heavy art books plus other books for reading....


As I was juggling books, bags, and a purse I suddenly felt a pain in my back! Oops! Do ya think I might have been carrying too much again!! This was me for the rest of yesterday and so far today....



You'd think I'd learn! I'm not a kid anymore. Maybe I should get me one of those little hand cart thingies to take with me to the library. The good news is that I found some good images and will be able to work on my project as soon as I can straighten up again!

I did manage to do my journal page today....

It's not one of my better attempts. I got carried away on the background and then it made it hard to write over the bumps of paint and it doesn't show up very good. Oh, well, you win some and you lose some. Even though it isn't very good I'm still letting you see it.

I also did my morning pages today and wrote some affirmations for The Artist's Way group I'm participating in.

Now I think I'll just have a quiet afternoon on the couch....no lifting required! Except for that big box of bon bons! Enjoy your day and remember to take care of yourself....
