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…

Itsy-Bitsy Teeny Tiny Stars


This past weekend was General Conference. On Saturday I just sat and listened. On Sunday I decided to use my hands while I listened. Remember back when I made these stars (at Conference, too!)? Well, now I've made them with 1/8" quilling paper. (Thank you, dear Allyson, for my Christmas present!)

And I will make earrings with them. Yes I will.

I followed your links for the tutorials for how to fold these stars. It was interesting to watch and try it out. I got lost half way through but I had a lot of interruptions; but I did understand the instructions very well. This is a really interesting craft. I don't know how you could do ones that are so tiny. There is a site that offers the stips of paper at howtomakestars.com. I cut strips myself with copy paper but the real beauty of them seems to be in the jewel-like colors of the paper used. One woman even makes baby star mobiles. I've promised myself that I will work on how to craft these until I can do it without the tutorial. I don't know where you find the time, Heather, to do all you do.
