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…

Look What's In the Shop Now!

It's finished and I'm really pleased with it. The work of months and months and several people in addition to myself have made this possible.



I love the way the shop looks. I hope my mom is proud of me!

 This is the first design you learn. Simple!


 Here is the intermediate design. Easy, too!



And here's what it all leads to...

I hope you will stop by the shop and take a look. It's not hard to learn and I'm always available for questions. Happy Thanksgiving week to you all!

If I drank, I'd have one tonight in celebration!

Guess What Happens Next Week?

One very fancy tutorial will be ready by next Tuesday.

I, for one, will be very thankful.

I started a new job at my library today.

Although the work was all stuff I'd done before, I'd never had time to do it uninterrupted. For the past seven years, I've been working at branch libraries where I've been interrupted constantly. I know there are infrequent stretches of time where I've been able to work for maybe a half hour without being asked a question or something, but today was u.n.i.n.t.e.r.r.u.p.t.e.d. time.

And I didn't know what to do with myself. I actually had to concentrate.

Because of this, I am mentally exhausted. So, here. Look at a picture of a paper ball I made a few days ago.


It's very pretty. But way too big to be on my Christmas tree. I must needs make a smaller one. And then about a billion more to give away as presents. :)
