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…

Encyclopedia Finished!

Woo hoo! More than 1000 pages folded. I am amazing.

At first I wasn't keen on the tabs, but they look kinda cool now.

It's pretty from the top, too!

Close up and personal...

I love the tabs. I think they increase the visual interest of the piece. I shudder to think how long this must've taken you :)

Congratulations on the big one ! Where do they go after we see them ? How do you display them ? They are so interesting .

You can't do this with an ebook .

I did about 50-100 pages per evening. I started it less than 2 weeks ago. It didn't take long, but I did have several moments when I wondered if I'd EVER finish!

Hi Heather - I think the tabs look like dashes or punctuation marks as you 'read' around the book - very cool!
