hoot hoot! "time for bed" ...

i hit the gym today, did one miserable dance class and ended up not being able to walk in a straight line. that's for not exercising in the last 8 months! sometimes i think crafting and exercising are indeed inversely related. remember the pricing and supply curves that we use to learn at economics lectures?? supply increases, prices fall ... supply decreases, prices rise? well ... imagine the curves this way ...

you see ... i was right ... the more i craft the less i exercise ... *sigh* ... such is life!

anyhow, since i am about to whither, i should be in bed. but ...something is a-gnawing inside of me like little ants crawling under my skin... that is a SIGN! guess what ... it's called the craft-attack!

even something as simple as this bookmark would appease the irritating ants ...

hoot! hoot! "time for bed" ... the wise old owl says ...

i guess he's right. and so was i ... the ants are satisfied and have gone to sleep. i should too... *yawn*

goodnight sweet artists ... tomorrow will be a new day ... and i will be aching all over ...

happy pimping! :)


  1. That's such a cute post and really made me smile. You know the reason for your craftenomics is quite simple. There just aren't enough hours in the day! I haven't exercised in about 8 months either which roughly equates to the time I've been crafting too! See, that's two of us which definitely proves your theory. You should publish it!

  2. and did I mention that it is also late here and I really should go to bed too!!

  3. Oh Luthien, you made me laugh again! Maybe you should have made a pie-chart, those are always so simple to read.
    I love your luggage tags...what a great idea! Your imagination is unlimited!
    Thank you for all your sweet comments...you bring a big smile to my face every time
    I wish I could give you a spine cracking hug, but for now just imagine it. Love hurts a little bit...LOL

  4. I love this bookmark, Luthien. It is so pretty.
    Hope you get some rest.
    Have a lovely week.

  5. oh I know what you mean. I really need to get back to exercise.
    Love the bookmark! good night

    i think you are spot on!! sometimes i wish human beings didn't have to sleep to function ... GAH!! either that or gimme another 12 hours in a day ... that would be good.

    LOL!!! oh yea... pie-chart!! i forgot about those!! thanks for your sweet comments too :)) i dunno about the spine-cracking hug tho ... in my condition now, it'll probably really break my spine!!! LOL!!! MUAX!!

    Love your bookmark!

  8. This is so true! I knew it, just glad I found someone else who agrees!
    almost 2 years ago I lost 28 lbs but didn't paint a thing in months unless it was a custom order. A year ago I started painting a lot more and I'm up 22 lbs again. This really stinks! But I'm fixing it, I hit the treadmill last night!

  9. Hi Luthien,
    I'm glad the ants were bugging you!
    These pieces are gorgeous.
    thanks for sharing.
