Sweet Dreams

Luna - Limited edition print from Carambatack Design

I don't sleep. Seriously, not ever. Not at all. And no... I am NOT a vampire (*wink wink*)

I have sporidic insomnia and I go for periods at a time where I just cannot seem to sleep. Its related to anxiety and its something that I've gone through for years now. I'm tired, but when I lay down to go to sleep at night I just start thinking of totally random things and before I know it, its 5am. And let me tell you, getting around 2 or 3 hours of sleep at night really isn't fun.

Hmm. Considering all of time I seem to have on my hands you'd think that I'd be a bit more productive.... yet I still have 3 unfinished journals sitting on my table right now.

Anyways, todays blog is all about the joy of sleep - and my attempt to experiance it vicariously through etsy since I'm obviously not getting any on my own.

Oh - and if you have any relaxation tips, feel free the share em!

Oh you poor thing. Seriously, I'm the last to give advice, since insomnia (anxiety related!) has been something I've dealt with my entire life... at the moment, I pop two Benedryl every night and fall asleep about 3 hours later. Its a bad habit, but if it wasn't for that, I'd be up all night right alongside of you!

Too bad we can't get together and have all night crafting sessions. And thanks for featuring my favorite gnome :)

That's a bummer! I have a hard time falling asleep -- I think too much about stuff and can't fall asleep. However, sniffing some lavender and drinking some warm milk seems to help me a little.
