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…

Oh Happy Vacation!

I am on vacation from the library this week and what a joy it is!

The list of things to do is long and art is on there in between the trips to the post office and deep cleaning projects...

My Mormon Lent is still a-going on in my life and things have happened because of it. Some good. Some not what I expected (and good in spite of that).

More people are writing to tell me how they are using the Fancy Folds tutorial. Here's a photo from Stephanie Phillips from Tattered Trinkets who said, "Just wanted to show you my first completed "fancy font" project that I made using the techniques from your instructional book.  Hope it makes you proud!  Lol. I know it does me....your techniques are sooooo much easier to follow than other instructions I found out there....well worth [it]!

Check out Stephanie's Facebook page for more of her book folding crafts and antiques. While you are at it, check out the Rhymes With Magic Art page, too!
