Sunday, January 30

Please, just 8 hours!

January kicked my butt!
The flu arrived around the 1st & still won't leave.
I'm not operating on many cylinders these days.
I'm working on some things for upcoming workshops,
But when your sleep deprived you do weird things.
Like cut up cute pictures.
Wax them onto pages.
Wrap them up like little mummies.
And then set fire to them!
I need more sleep!

Oh girl, I was lovin' on your art project until you had to go and say the "f" word (fire)....go read my last post.

Gorgeous creations girl, get to feeling better!


Amy said...

Oh I think lack of sleep does you good! These are seriously awesome.

Charlene said...

I am laughing because I can almost picture you in a sleepless dilerium creating with swirls of magic dust poofing in little gusts. Hope you aren't sick too. Take care. HUGS

diane cook said...

LOL! These look like crazy fun...I hope you & your family get to feeling better soon Lisa. The flu is not, not at all. I know.

Julia - "Vintage with Laces" said...

Awesome creations, dear Lisa! I wish I'd be as creative as you when I'm sick! Such great weird things never come to my mind when I don't feel good.
I'm sorry to hear that the flu is still around and hope you will get better very soon and get some sleep as well!

time worn interiors said...

Girl you are so funny! I can not function without sleep! Some people stay up till 4 am working on things, not me, I HAVE TO SLEEP! My creative juices don't flow if I'm tired! Rest girl, rest!

Are you coming to the show in a few weeks? Hope so would love to see you again!


Beth Leintz said...

So now I know the secret to your creativity- sleep deprivation. I loved them before, but adding the little bits and pieces of textures makes them even more interesting- you've created a whole new genre- mummified art.

Discarded Forlorn said...

I woke up with flu like symptoms this weekend, no fun!! These are just beautiful creations. Hope you're week is better and all is well!

Whimsey Creations said...

Wow if you can do that sleep deprived...beautiful work! Love it!

Marge of Emmas Nook and Granny said...

I love your waxed, burned mummies!! Feel better but don't sleep. You are on a roll! said...

Sounds like a Halloween project, but sure looks pretty.

Hope everyone is feeling ok at your house by now. Did you catch it too?

Miss Sandy said...

Too funny and the new art is fantastic! Sorry to hear that you have been sick, feel better!

Lenna Young Andrews said...

I do hope everyone feels better and you get some sleep soon, Lisa . . . but, what you have been creating is beautiful! I am so looking forward to your lessons in 4 artists 4 ways!!!!

Karen Valentine said...

If I get the flu will I be as amazingly creative and think more outside the box????? Darn! Are you contagious? Maybe I should come over! LOL! You always amazing girlfriend! (I am sorry you've been sick though!) BTW... How the heck did I miss your last post? I've been trying so hard to watch for new posts from you! I soooo adore the book you made in your last post. When I try to do that I never get the look right!!
I hope you feel all better very soon sweetie!

Lisa, I think you should keep getting the flu! Hasn't hurt your creativity at all! Just kidding!
You're still the best!

kpaints said...

Wonderful job...just beautiful! You are so creative! I loved visiting, again.

trash talk said...

Asleep or awake...they still won't let me play with scissors here at the home. I wonder how they'd feel about a flame thrower...hmmm!
Beautiful girl...just beautiful.

June said...

Lisa, you create amazing art even when you sleepwalk!!!! Wow, I love these!
So sorry about the flu bug that has taken up permanent residence at your house. I kindda remember what that was like when all of mine were younger.(no, I think I have blocked it out) One would come home with it and lovingly give it to the next, and then the next and on and on and on.
sending healing hugs your way...

Thespa said...

Oh, I love the fibers along with the beeswax on these. Great job! LOVE THEM!

Pat @ My Tattered Elegance said...

Hope all is well soon, I miss you! Your work is awsome as always. Wish my brain was geared like yours. Take care and try to get sooome sleep.
We don't want you with the flu too, or do you already have it.
Hugs, Pat

Kathy said...

And call it AWESOME art!!!!!! So ethereal and lovely....

Rhonda said...

Lisa, I wish I could create without sleep! These are simply amazing! I hope you feel better and get some good rest.

The Feathered Nest said...

So....if this is what you come up with when you're half a sleep, with sick babies and hubbie.... and they are THIS gorgeous....what in the world would you create when you are fully awake with the all the family healthy?????!!!! They are all so beautiful to me Lisa..... hugs and love sweet friend, Dawn

Kris Pare said...

Lisa, so know what you are going through. I just barely survived the month too. The collages are gorgeous and I so want to know how you do that wax! Kris

Claudia said...

Well, you may be sleepless, but you sure are creative! Love it.


Petite Michelle Louise said...

sleep away because these creations are all sooooo "dreamy!" (feel better!)

Michelle Palmer said...

Nah... you're just a creative soul with way too much medicine!
It's wonderful!

Vicki said...

I am completely in love with these! I think if they were for sale I'd pay more knowing you were on some sleep deprived "trip" makes you sound like a rock star. lol I do hope you and the rest of the family are feeling better soon. The kids have been sick here too. I feel like I haven't put in a full days work or been on a schedule in a few weeks.

Rebecca said...

Hey Lisa Girl
These are beautiful sleep or no sleep. Sorry to hear your family is down again, it is so hard when the kiddies are sick. Praying you will all be healthy soon.
Love what you are doing

Dapoppins said...

When I saw the first art piece, I was going to ask, "Huh, how did you make them all dreamy and misty?"

LOL. I guess i need less sleep. Not that I get a ton now, but hey, if I could create like that....!

Storybook Woods said...

Oh you poor thing, I hope you are doing a bit better by now xoxox Clarice
