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…

Inspirations

Paper stitching done by Jessica over at paperstitch.net
Just recently I read an article about how to be inspired by something, but how not to steal it. The idea was to look at all the things that really strike you and ask yourself what it is about them you LOVE. It's usually not the exact item, but something about it that you like and that something is You.

For instance, in the picture above, I love the idea of stitching on paper. It's not the artist's design in particular that I love. So if I were to try this for myself, I'd have to think about what I'd like to stitch on paper and not just copy.

Anyway, take a peek at paperstitch.net. It's lover-ly.

I've seen her work before and agree it is eye-catching. I do more traditional paper embroidery for cards. Can't wait to see what you come up with,.
