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…

How to Make Folded Books - by Heather Hajek Eddy

Hello friends - years ago I created a tutorial on how to make your own folded books and sold it in my (now defunct) Etsy shop. It was a blessing in my family's and my life for several years as it kept us afloat financially during some pretty lean years.

At the end of 2016, I stopped selling on Etsy for several reasons, but mostly because selling things gave me HUGE anxiety. So, I closed up that part of my life & thought everyone was finding other cool ways to fold books online & wouldn't care about my little booklet.

I have been pleasantly surprised to find many people are still interested and emails pop up in my box every so often asking if I'll ever sell it again. (Apparently, once you're on Etsy, you are FOREVER on Etsy and people can find you forever, too.)

In the spirit of paying it forward to the world, I'm making the tutorial FREELY available here on my blog. Scroll below to see the tutorial in its entirety, all for free. Eventually I'll upload all of them and maybe even be able to figure out a way to make them downloadable.
