The Art of Pain…

Every morning I wake up and have to force myself out of bed. It’s difficult because I know most of the time moving around and doing something is going to distract me from my pain but I also know doing too much will tire me out a lot.

I have found getting lost in an art project goes a long way to bridging these problems. When I make jewelry or a display piece or paint I am distracted enough that I reduce my discomfort without spending all of my spoons.

Yesterday I spent a few hours working up some new hair pins for display at The Cutting Edge Salon:

Today I am trying to climb out of a pretty high level of pain so we’ll see if I can do any fine work. I may just glue paper onto canvas to create some displays for my upcoming show.

Sometimes the best I can do is as basic as paste paper here, cut paper there.
