Again, I want to thank everyone who has posted or emailed comforting messages. Even the simplest of comments mean a lot, and I appreciate you taking time out of your own busy lives to read my blog and write. I’ve been falling behind on my email and keeping up with everyone else’s blogs. I hope you’ve all been busy, creative, and happy!
I was hoping my creative energy would return and I could get back to work on something besides just drawing, but it’s been slow. I’m blaming the shot they gave me at the hospital — it was an evil-looking fluorescent yellow liquid in a big ugly syringe. At first glance, I thought it was something toxic and wondered if it would make me glow in the dark or turn into Hulkdora. (Now that would be a cute drawing, wouldn’t it?)
Actually it’s something they also give to cancer patients to kill fast-growing cells and if I’d done my homework earlier, I would have been a lot more worried about it. Since the shot, I’ve been so tired all the time, more than from the pregnancy. I have a new empathy for cancer patients who endure weeks and weeks of those treatments.
But things are looking up — yesterday was the first day I felt like doing yoga again, and tomorrow I might even try going back to class if I can get up that early! And today I finished ten postcards for Myra’s postcard swap.
I know I said I would never enter a fiber-art postcard exchange. Too small, too many, no time….wah, wah, wah. But Myra’s was different because she said we could print out a photo or a drawing and send that. Of course once I printed something out on paper, I immediately thought, too flimsy! So I ended up making them out of fabric after all.
It’s a silly idea really, but I haven’t been able to get this postcard joke out of my head since I thought of it. It seems like no one else in the exchange is posting their designs, so I feel like I shouldn’t either. But I can’t resist, so if you’re not in the exchange you can peek at it here. And DON’T LOOK if you’re in the exchange!
