A few nights ago I had one of those awful sleepless episodes. They say you shouldn't stay in bed if you can't sleep, so I went to my stamp room and colored. I never color in the middle of the night, but this particular night once the thought entered my head there was nothing else for it. I had to color. I went right to sleep after. The next night was another sleepless one, but no coloring. I toughed it out in the darkness until 5 am when I finally drifted off. I've been sleeping fine since then. I don't know what gets into me. Does that happen to you?
So... for my coloring in the wee hours I rummaged in my box of printed digis for something quick and easy. Probably no surprise that I came up with a Bugaboo -- Floral Teapot.
It was a few days before I made it into a card. Framed with a Taylored Expressions die that's meant to be used horizontally, but there's no reason the "hello" can't be up the side, I guess. I made three layers of Neenah 110 lb white and colored the top layer with Copic B21, which is the lightest blue in the teapot. Fun designer paper on the card base and a few glittery Nuvo drops to echo it. It's simple, but not too simple. Just another stop on the road to utter simplicity, but I don't think I'll ever quite get there.
About that sleeplessness... I've read everything there is to read, adhere to all the dos and avoid the don'ts. Don't eat too close to bedtime, don't read your Kindle or use the computer, don't exercise or drink alcohol or coffee or anything with caffeine. They even say don't read in bed. What??? They can't take everything away!
Enjoy your day. I've been out making hay while the sun shines. The rain is on it's way back... Supplies listed below. Thanks for making my day with your visit!
