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…

Paper Flowers - minus the tubes...

So I tried another flower tonight without the paper towel tube - just the paper. I like it, but it is STILL too big! I need a dainty flower. Like me. (uh... that was a joke)

And I punched out a whole bunch of these little flowers - I have an idea for a garland I want to try. More later!

Oh using just paper for these flowers turned out really nice too!! I know you said about making them smaller, but this is beautiful - you don't give yourself enough credit!! Smaller you say though....what about just cutting smaller strips of paper? Scale down the original version. I still have this on my list to try, I want to add it to a spring time card!! Again thank you for the wonderful inspriation!!
