Fighting the.........


........migraine demons. That's what's at the bottom of the picture, just in case you're wondering.
Holy moley....I haven't had a whopper like this in ages and don't want another. So just in case you think you're having a bad day----I WILL TRADE YOU.
Nominal studio work done yesterday as the body started the pre-headache meanies. That's okay; there's another day for it all. Life is too short to worry about what you can't change. I should have known I was getting sick when I willingly ran the sweeper and wanted to clean. That is NOT normal! LOL!!!!
So here is hoping you all have a really GOOD day, good enough for two people and that by the time I start getting totally awake and with it, the migraine-from-hell will be nothing but a memory.
Albeit a nasty one.
Like the bottom of the pic.
Keep repeating Anne: It's only a bad dream, it's only a bad dream....with a conga drum going full bore in your skull!!!! (everybody Rumba!!!!)
Have a good one!
Pax.
P.S. As I have mentioned frequently, I try and do my posts the night before so they are ready for early risers. I am happy to report that as of this minute, my head is back among the living and I think I have pretty well subdued the *Migraine Demons*. So it will be an early morning in the studio and a little art therapy to make me feel happy! I think this is a day for the stamps and paper clay. I shouldn't be able to hurt myself with that...... ;-)

Oh, Anne - I am so sorry about your poor head. Good to hear that the demons are leaving (hopefully never to return!). I'm hoping to get to have some art play time today, too. And maybe even take some pics to post (that seems to be my stumbling block, getting photos taken). Feel better!

A) FUN

Paperclay is the most WONDERFUL thing ever made! I prefer it to the polymers because it is lightweight, air dries, can be sanded when dry and best of all, you can ink stamps and then stamp into the surface, leaving not only the stamp design but the ink too.
You can paint it, age it with diferent paint mediums.....you name it. For a simple product, there are some amazingly sophisticated results it will yield.
It is made by the Creative Paperclay Company, Inc.

www.paperclay.com

I have never checked their website, but it might give you locations of stores that carry it.
You would LOVE it!!!!

Glad to know you are on the mend. Take care of you!

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

I am....promise! Cross me black little Pirate Heart!!! ;)

Ooh, paper clay sounds interesting! Glad the migraine is coming to an end - I've found with regular chiropractic visits, I haven't had headaches at all.

Take your time and enjoy - wonetimes it's just feeling and looking and maybe playing that works....

Happy to hear the migraine is becoming a thing of the past. I used to get them when I was younger. I never understood why my head didn't burst from the pressure and pain. Sending "begone nasty migraine" wishes your way!!

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Linda,

Paperclay is a MUST! You'd find some way to marble it, I'm sure! Beads maybe?
Just finished sanding down the edges of four little pieces for a collage---will wait to paint them.
So all in all, good day!

Audrey,

I was hoping that once I hit menopause the headaches would be GONE. Well, maybe this is ust a revenge one.....a reminder of what it was like? LOL!!!!
If my head blew up, I hate to think what would come out.....though yesterday was pretty close!
Anyway, I'm in good enough shape to tinker in the studio and that's good for me!

America Alcala said...

So glad you're feeling much better Anne...and working with paperclay seems very interesting...I might have to try it sometime! Have Fun!:)

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

You'd love it, though I wil say this; it is not as hard as polymer clay when dry, nor as heavy.
So there are pros and cons---for the work I do it is perfect.
And after it is dry you can redampen it to a certain extent.
hey, it's cheap---give it a shot!
