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…

Pierced Paper


I've always wanted to try paper piercing. These are my motifs that I will make into cards and send to my visiting teachees this month! I drew on the other side with a spirograph and then pierced in patterns I thought would look nice.


After a while, it got easier with the spacing.




This one is the same design done on three different holes in the wheel.


This reminds me of a quilt square/star.











I took the picture of this one in the morning sun while there were still shadows. I think it's one of the prettiest.

and you made every one of those holes individually by hand??
Oh, these are very cool! Lucky teachees.
