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…

On a Roll...

It's funny how life works. You would think (or at least *I* would) that with so much going on (escrow, layoffs, ex-drama) that I would have no room in my brain for creative things.

And yet, I am full to bursting with new ideas... I figured out how to do letters. I've drawn up the patterns for more than half of the alphabet now (see what insomnia is good for?). Last night I made a mockup of an "O". It turned out well and I have high hopes that I can figure out how to make a "Q" look good eventually.

Hi Heather,

I also create folded books and I am researching the beginnings of this art. Can I ask how you got the idea to make letters and if you had seen this type of folding before? Thanks a lot
