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…

When the Worst is Over

I've had a special order that I've been mulling over for more than two weeks now. A customer wanted a folded book with the theme of her business as the word. The problem was that it was a long word - longer than any other I've done. I kept worrying about how to do it for days and days. I finally just told myself to do it the other day and, guess what.

It looks terrific!


Oh, a weird thing about my ABC books - they were in my shop for 9 months and were bought last week. This week I've had three emails from people wanting to buy them. Weird. (Happy, but weird!) When will I have time? I'm having envy for the unemployed people who come to my library. I want their time... (and I want to keep my paycheck)

It's part of the word "typography". :)
