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…

Skull Folded Book Pattern

Presenting my first free pattern! This builds on the information presented in my Folded Book Tutorial available in my Etsy shop. Just click on the picture below to make it big and then print it out. You need a 19-mark fore edge pattern on your text block. I used 1/8" marks.

Wohoo! That is awesome, Heather!
Love the skull pattern, maybe i have to give it a try?!
Haven`t folded a book in ages, but love to do it, so relaxing :)
Have a wonderful day,
hugs from Maya

Thanks Heather. Maybe a book for Halloween is in order with your skull pattern and the word SPOOKY etc.

I LOVE this! I was poking my head in on your blog because I posted about your book art and Etsy shop on my blog in 2009 and it still gets a lot of traffic.

Hi! Hope all is well! (Any chance I'll see more "Imbibo Lacuna" jewelry in your Etsy store?)
