The wall of Inspiration and hope..and a leap of faith..

I've never been very good at asking for help, so this is a huge leap of faith for me. As well as a lesson in reaching out and simply asking for help... As some of you may or may not know, I was born with a rare metabolic disease, which is considered to be incurable and progressive. This disease causes havoc on my body and immune system. It mainly effects my bones and muscles, but it also weakens my immune system and will eventually take it's toll on my major organs as well. That being said, I struggle with a lot of pain and muscle weakness every day. Tho some days are better then others, I honestly can't remember what a day without any pain or weakness feels like anymore. And lately it seems to have progressed or at the very least been flaring up quite a bit over these last few months. So of course with that comes a host of emotions to contend with as well. Such as frustration, hopelessness, depression, guilt, embarressment, etc. etc. With that all being said, (I don't want this post to turn into a self pity party) I have thought of a wonderful idea to help me stay hopeful, inspired, and motivated to never give up. To turn to my love and passion for art for help. And that is where all of you come in..I have decided to dedicate an entire wall of my art room, into what I will call my wall of hope and inspiration! A very special wall full of love, support, hope, and inspiration that I can look too whenever I feel alone or feel like giving up. So I am putting a call out to all my lovely and amazing art friends who may be interested in sharing a very special place on my wall of hope, as well as in my heart.
All you need to do is make a small piece of art about the size of a 4x6 photo, post card size,or 5x7 the largest, that you'd be willing to send me to be added to the wall. If anyone is interested please leave me a comment here with contact info or on facebook, so that I can give you my address and answer any questions or details with you.. I will be posting and featuring any art that I receive as well here on my blog too. Thank you for all your love and support...always Kelley
