4:30 am..........


When I wake up in the middle of the night....it is best to get up and create! Laying there only frustrates me:) I have been working on these pages for some time now....and nothing was happening. Once I got started it sort of came together!
Now you ask, "What are you doing up at that hour?" Well, let me explain........
Yesterday we were shopping at a furniture store when.....I felt something on my chest! Well, I swatted and jumped, realizing that some kind of bug was on me! Not what you would expect inside a retail store....ha ha! Then the PAIN CAME! I was stung by a bee#%$#^ I am very allergic to bee stings and have had some wierd reactions in my life. I didn't see the bug, so I wasn't really sure what it was. The stinging calmed down after awhile and I didn't think much more of it.
In the middle of the night I woke with this hot, swollen, itching area that was getting bigger and more irritating as time went on!!!!! That was when I got up.....so it goes:) I guess I need to thank that little bee for getting my muse going (forget the loss of sleep:).

I am allergic to bee stings too and I know how frustrating dealing with the reaction can be! How great though that you were able to channel it into working on that wonderful art. So colorful and vibrant, I love it!

I have sure enjoyed seeing your journal pages. So glad the bee sting did not make you deathly ill. I have heard of that happening to people who are allergic to them.
