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…

Book Origami Swap!

A few posts ago, I told you about my new friend Nikki at WhimSY Love and how she helped me with my folded books. What I didn't tell you then was that we agreed to swap folded books. It came today! I love her heart books! I consider this one of my first pieces of "real art" and it will be going up in my new house (fingers crossed). (Will this make me a grownup?)

Also, I figured out how to make hearts and this new folded book will be going into my shop very soon. I LOVE DOING BOOK ORIGAMI!

I should write a book. About books. I mean, using books. As art.
