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…

One Man's... - January 29, 2020

I've been making paper things for years and years now. There were bags and bags of ornaments in my garage.  There were shelves of folded books. A few months ago I nearly threw them all out by because I couldn't figure out what to do with all of them.

A coworker came to me asking for ideas on decorating the children's area in our library. I told her about the bags in my garage and offered them for whatever she wanted to do with them.

This afternoon she was called me at my desk and asked me to come out to the children's area. 

She had taken all of my things and created an underwater scene using my pieces like coral and shells. 

It really shows that one man's trash is another's treasure.  (And it's not really trash! I just can't use it!)
