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…

December Pine Tree Folded Book Pattern

My favorite thing about this month's free pattern is its versatility. Pine trees are appropriate for so many themes and times of the year. If you want, apply star charms to the tops of these trees for Christmas decorations! Ink the top part of the tree green and the trunks brown. Leave it naked for a subtle look. (That's me... subtle.)

Click on the below image to make it big and print out the pattern for yourself! I'd love to hear from people who've tried it and see their results!

I recently put together a post about using books to create "art" ... specifically folds. I was motivated to do it by an annoying post on Apt Therapy questioning the validity of the process. Anyways - I used your free patterns as the hook and, thanks to Craftgawker, the traffic is off the charts! Hope you're getting lots of hits as a result - I think your work is wonderful.

I've been hearing a lot about that article and think it's stupid, too. I don't believe in worshiping books anymore than I believe in worshiping a church building. I revere the words like I revere the light of truth I hear at church. The vessel is merely that, a vessel! Thanks for the heads up about your blog. :)
