FOR THE LOVE OF JUNK

What is wrong with me?

Ok, after doing some serious cleaning on Monday and Tuesday, spending all day painting yesterday, doing some rearranging in the shop, etc, etc, I find myself unable to sleep at night. This would be ok if I wasn't so exhausted. So, 2:00 AM I find myself in the craft room creating. I would say not a totally bad situation if it wasn't because of the fact that I went to sleep so late and I awoke at 6:00 this morning unable to sleep again. That makes it exactly 4 hours of sleep all together, yikes!. All is not lost, I''show you why.
 I found the little basket last week, loved the shape and new it will make a good vessel for a floral.


 Now, this is just a mock, nothing is glued, just and initial gathering of stuff, still tweaking. I will be making this kind of things for my Christmas @ the shops. They are large items and I'm really splurging on this. I have collected so much stuff, time to create with it. I hope my costumers will understand this will truly be one of the kind items. This is my soul, I was an artist and crafter before I became a shop owner and dealer. If I can only get more sleep...that is the reason why we creative people are all a little loony, hah,hah. Please don't take offense, I have just noticed we all have very interesting personalities.

I will post pictures of my finished cone whenever that happens. Blessings, Marta.

I just ran across your blog. I think your problem is you are too exhausted when you try to go to sleep. It happens to me all the time. Don't over extend your self. Give your body time to catch up. And I hate to admit this, but when I lay in bed exhausted and can't sleep, I get up and eat a couple of crackers and find that it helps me to fall asleep. Good luck.

Same thing happens to all of us when we have something on our minds. I usually just get it out of my system then sleep comes easy. I love your creations. When you get enough things made up, maybe you will sleep like a baby. Have a Blessed day.

How absolutely adorable! I don't think tweaking it is even necessary!! BTW, I've been a bit of a night owl, too, lately.
