Valentine's Day Journal Page

Happy Valentine's Day to you!  Do any of you go nuts on this day?  Me - not so'll know why with tomorrow's post.

I do have a secret love though.........not the best thing to love so much....but it's helped me numerous we go:'s NyQuil!!!!!!  I've been sick for about 2 1/2 to 3 weeks now........and this little lady has helped me sleep through many a night.  It's the best remedy for no sleep for ME!  I've tried some other stuff - and nothing makes me go nee-naws like she does.

So before you think I'm totally nuts - this page wasn't 100% done FOR NyQuil.  I was actually trying a background technique that I saw online at Paper Artsy.  My background pretty much failed (according to the video results) - and the page just sat there in my room.  Until Saturday when I was snowed in and then it came to me!

Here's a bad drawing:

I've had that blinged up cherry FOREVER and glad it now has a home!!!

The journaling reads: "Oh NyQuil, You've been my saving grace for the past 3 weeks! Without you I would not have slept. Your almost empty! I'm almost better! Until we meet again! Love, Maria"

and then on the other side:
"Yes - I actually did a journal page about NyQuil.  If you know what a bad sleeper I am, you'd understand my love for this substance! Long Live NyQuil!"

Happy Valentine's Day!

Thanks for your visit!

Hi Maria,

Sorry that I missed this post. Pity that you haven't ben feeling well... I like your funky journal page. The blingey cherries look so sweet.

Soo sorry to hear you've been sick for so long, but glad you were able to have a bit of fun about it all! I think your secret love for NyQuil is quite humorous and your hand-drawn bottle is quite good. Your background is very cool, too!
Feel better!

I'm so glad you are on the road to recovery. Your mix media page is so fun. I like the background and the different texture.

Personally, I can't use Nyquil. I sleep but have the WORSE dreams/nightmares when I take it.
