#DArtDay 2013

Today is one of my favorite on-line events, Diabetes Art Day!!  I’ve participated every year, with a voodoo doll in 2010, a  necklace in 2011, and a failed pancreas in 2012.  This morning I was thinking about my weekend in D.C. for the CWD Tech Conference, and I drew my inspiration from opening and closing keynotes by Dr. Moritsugu and Sebastien Sasseville, and from the time I spent with my friends.  I was inspired by the need for balance - all the crap diabetes brings and all of the wonderful things I’d miss out on if I didn’t have diabetes.

I’m thankful for all of the good things that have come my way because of diabetes.  But I’ll be even more thankful when we are all cured.


  1. Great job! I'll try to participate next year :) I miss all of you SO much already!!!! Stinks being stuck here in DC solo now! lol

  2. I feel the same. Love the art work :-)

  3. Love the artwork, Karen!!! Very cool to see that blue circle, and that's a great #bgnow 100 in there, too! Have to admit: it made me nervous seeing that vampire with fangs SO CLOSE to the brutally large cgm sensor needle...(shudder). :) Thank you so much for sharing this.

  4. Fantastic art Karen. Your art made me think of the theme song from Facts of Life - You take the good you take the bad you take them both and there you have the Facts of Life (Diabetes).


Thanks for your comment!
