Sleep is over rated

Ok - night 87 of getting no sleep ( or at least it feels that way). I fall asleep just fine, but I wake up in the wee hours, lay there looking at the clock, and finally give up and go downstairs. Thank goodness for my art room and my DVR! I have to admit though - I get my art supplies out, put some George Winston on the media player, and just go to town. Something about the peace of the house at that hour makes my creativity come alive!

This page I made last week at about 4 am. I found the background paper at Scrap This! and thought it was so perfect for me lol! My buddy Cooper (he's a Morkie - a Maltese/Yorkie mix) is a super sleeper, and when he curls up on my lap and takes a nap, he is just so sweet.

I hope all you dear readers had a great night and feel renewed and invigorated this morning. Enjoy your Tuesday!


  1. I like your pages Gretchen. Too bad we don't live close--we could play in the middle of the night. I am awake at least two times, maybe more--I usually read until I can go back to sleep--if I went to my studio, I would get so wound up, I would never go back to sleep!!

  2. That would be nice to have a cup of tea with someone at 3 o'clock in the morning~ and I most likely don't go back to sleep because I am in my art room getting my brain all revved up lol!

  3. CLAP CLAP DING! Congratulations on starting your blog Gretchen! It looks great!
