SHOULDISM SEASON

Here's a self-page-turning catalogue of some of my past bookworks and boxworks. I think I may have posted this before but anyway, no harm in repeating, is there? It's best viewed on full screen. In case you can't get the full-size with the preview below, try going to this link.




SHOULDISM:
What is it about 'should'? Not a particularly good word or sound but it's okay, not a problem. Until you start putting it in front of almost every sentence you speak to yourself. This is the season of Should.

I Should send cards. No, I Should make cards and then send them. I Should make my own cards, it's so much more personal, it shows I really care and also shows how talented I am. I Should be doing more. It's the end of 2016 and what have I done? A whole Shoulding year gone by and my To Do list is still where it was last year. Now it's ten past four in the afternoon and I'm writing this instead of finishing that thing I Should have finished about a month ago. Should. Should. Schouldschouldschouldschouldschould.....

I should reply more wittily to comments and I should comment more on my blogging friends' blogs and I should be more appreciative in general and I should get out more and I should....I should...I should remember what I should be doing instead of this?

Oh, and we should fish more. Everybody should fish more. But not catch fish.

The catalogue thing is absoluytely beautiful! I spent so long flipping through it that I forgot how I had even arrived upon it. Wow!

Nasreen, much appreciated. I hope you have a computer or tablet as these things are really hard to see on a tiny phone screen.
