I finally completed a project I have been wanting to do for years! I am always so overwhelmed with just trying to survive, do my physical therapy, get my meals and go to my doctor appointments, that I never have time to do anything fun. I have dozens of art projects lined up, lots stories for books and stacks of frames by my desk. It is so frustrating to not be able to work on them!
I just had to put all my appointments aside and even went without meals (and showers) to write and illustrate this book. It was something I HAD to do for myself and my sanity. Thanks to my hubby and mom for the help, I got it done!
