Who needs a fancy therapist?
Art therapy is my prescribed
drug of choice :)
I was so excited when Jenny (of Everyday is a Holiday)
contacted me about her and Aaron's
upcoming Art Journaling classes
that they are graciously hosting over on their lovely blog.
At first I thought "no way do I have time for this right now"
however that train of thought didn't last long
I wanted and NEEDED this artistic distraction in my life.
See, tomorrow I start my hormones for IVF
and I'm not exactly thrilled about it...
Don't get me wrong I'm excited about what the end result
may (thinking possitive - WILL) bring
but I'm terribly anxious and nervous about the entire process too.
So a little IVF "baby" journal started to take shape this week.
I'm still too nervous to write anything,
fearing I will wreck all my work
or perhaps a bit embarrassed that I'm not all that clever with words.
But I'm sure I'll get there,
and I bet Jenny and Aaron will have lots of advise
and great tips and techniques in the coming weeks.
I didn't really expect to
LOVE Art Journaling quite so much
but I couldn't hardly wait for the pages to dry.
It's gratifying to translate my fears and frustrations into something pretty.
Tomorrow morning I go in for Shot Orientation ;(
I really haven't a clue where I'm going to find the inner strength to face my fear of needles
and the idea of having to administer them myself,
but I don't have much of a choice...
This girl wants a baby!!!
