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…

Post-Christmas energy

I am in the mood to make Christmas decorations. It only happens after the REAL Christmas is over - all the stress and rush to go and do is over and I finally have time...

I found this wonderful idea over at Paper Forest that I couldn't wait to try. I love working with paper!

The first one I tried turned out like this. I followed the directions explicitly and found that I really needed a circle cutter.

My next ones were of book covers that I've been saving for a rainy day. Although the spread-out look is a little creepy, I think the idea has merit.

Look what happens when you don't put in any alternate color and just use a book cover!

I've bought a couple of old atlases at Friends of the Library booksales. I realized that I could make ornaments for all my family of the places they live. My brother and his wife live in Rexburg, ID.

Can't wait to do some more!!!
