The rewards of working through the pain.

Hello cupcakes!  Today was another long day for me.  I woke up early due to the whole sleep disorder thing and got ready for work.  During the course of the morning I forgot my purse, left my debit card behind at the drive thru for my coffee and then proceeded to dump said coffee all over myself as I was exiting the car for work.  LOL!  WOOOOO HOOOO what an adventurous morning! 

I’ve been experiencing a good bit of pain this past few days.  It’s an all over body ache that is hard to describe.  I don’t feel sick or anything, just sore and stiff.  I am taking tylenol and this seems to be helping.  Today I had to work through the pain at the flower shop.  I also had to work through the pain when I stopped at the art supply store and then again when I got home.  I realized tonight that there are rewards for me for working through the pain. 

Not only did I help my paycheck increase for the week, but I was also able to find not one but two artists pens at the store.  Both of these pens are waterproof but one of them is bulletproof.  I am a happy girl about this.  I also was able to complete my J and this is becoming a reward in and of itself each day.  So on to the process!

This is another 6 X 6 square of Strathmore Acrylic Linen Paper.  I love this size for some reason.  I started with the J in the middle and then just began adding lines around it.  I thought about writing words in all of the spaces surrounding the J but I wasn’t in the mood for an all black and white piece tonight.

I decided to bring on the color.  I may go back and add words but I’m not sure yet.  I kind of like the way it looks right now.  As I’m typing this, I’m actually thinking about doing another one using circular shapes around the J instead of the sharp lines.  Perhaps I can do that and add words.  Time will tell.  🙂

In the meantime I want to ask you a very important question.  Has anyone told you lately how totally and completely groovy you are?  No?  Well consider yourself notified!  Groove on….oh yeah…..oh yeah!
