Art is Good

It has been a crazy week at the Ackman house. My sweet Em had her tonsils out last Tuesday and she is STILL having the hardest time. I have been worried so I called the Doctor today. He reassured me that in this type of surgery Days 7, 8 and 9 are the worse. Oh my poor girl. How I miss her like this!!

Along with Em's pain I have had so much myself. Darn it!! Tuesday I spent the day in bed....till nearly 4 o-clock. It was miserable. My neck was in crazy pain which caused a migraine. UGH. Then the migraine meds made me sick. It is one vicious cycle. Today was my massage and helped me so much. Things should be looking up!!

Despite the pain I have been keeping up with the Index Card a Day Challenge on the Daisy Yellow blog and will begin working on the Summer of Color Challenge later today. Also I have my own Art Challenge to show you Thursday!! Lots of creative stuff going on.

Here is some Brave Art I made a few weeks ago. This one hangs in my studio...

I really LOVE this one!!

I created this one for the Fibromyalgia Craft Show I participated in a few weeks ago.

We ended up giving it to Em's friend for her birthday...

It was hard to let this one is one of my favorites.

Be sure and stop by Thursday...I will be posting my take on the Summer Art Challenge as well as sharing another NEW challenge for the weekend.

Do you ever get massages?? 


  1. Thinking of Em and praying for a speedy recovery. For you, too! I love your new art, dear friend!!! These cards are the cutest!

  2. I can see why that is one of your favorites! It's hard sometimes to let go..... Hmm, do you have fibromylgia? I have THAT and SLE Lupus - so I know all about pain....... the struggles involved with both. The hard part is that there are no outward symptoms that people can see. Hope you're feeling better soon.



I appreciate your thoughts and ideas...they inspire me!! I will be visiting you soon. Have a CREATIVE day!!
