Paralyzed From the Brain Down - April 3, 2020

To say the past weeks have been weird is an understatement. I have been trying to work from home, but it's difficult. What's worse is that I'm home more, but am completely unable to paint! I'm paralyzed and I can't figure out what's wrong. My husband says all psychological problems are inherently fixable if you can articulate what the problem is. So when I can't articulate it, I feel worse, like it's only ME standing in the way of feeling better. If only I were smarter.
One fun thing is that my siblings and I are all talking more online. Yesterday we had the best conversation because one never-available-when-we-group-call sibling actually took part! Unfortunately, they also got mad when I took a (lot) screenshots. I touched up one of the screenshots to show how they should really feel about me. 

I'm thinking of downloading some filters for my next meeting at work and looking like the potato lady I can't stop laughing at this picture. 

And laugh…

Slow and Steady Gets the Prize

Slowly, but surely, I have been making progress on getting my inventory together. I stayed up until waaaaayyy too late last night reconciling my stock on hand with my etsy listings. I have no idea how I can make an item, put it in the shoebox (my very professional storage container) and then have it disappear when I look for it later. Maybe the jewelry fairies are at work. Jerks.

The reconciliation must have been very good for me. I went to bed last night feeling more jazzed about my etsy stuff than I have in months. I even woke up early, anxious to continue pressing forward with the listing of my backlogged items. I took all the pictures and have only about 12 more to list before I can start on the bucketload of new ones I want to get working on!!!

I am really excited to start on a set of holiday-themed changeable earrings. I'll be using toggle clasps to make them and I think they should turn out really well... *fingers crossed*
