Paralyzed From the Brain Down - April 3, 2020

Image
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…

Alphabet Tutorial

This is the fancy "how-to-read my pattern" page


BOOYAH!

I have finished with the rough draft of my Folded Alphabet Tutorial. I am in the process of trying to convert this sucker to a PDF so I can send it out to some people to look it over before putting it in the shop. To make sure there are no inadvertent bad words in it and that type of thing.

This is a VERY exciting development! Can't wait until you have done your testing and are happy to release it. It must be a huge effort - thank you in advance!

I'm so happy for you. The amount of work that you put into it will not go unnoticed by your loyal followers. You are the folded book art queen. Can't wait till you put it in your shop. You know however that once you post the alphabet we are going to be looking for more patterns and maybe even a script alphabet (just in case you're taking requests).

Oh, thank you! Although I try to tell myself "You are doing great!", it really helps when I'm validated by outside sources. You two are wonderful!

The "fake page" looks beautiful, but...doesn't the long vertical line represent an "open fold" "OF" and the red x is a "PF"? Or am I totally off-base?
Heather Eddy said…
Uh... yeah. I got it backwards. See why I need guinea pigs?
Heather Eddy said…
Oh wait. I did that on PURPOSE! Just to throw people off... so they'd want to buy it instead...

Oh wait. Maybe they'd think I was an idiot before purchasing and just change their minds.
