Today's Lesson From The Craft Room: Set An Intention
I woke up this morning and decided I needed to finish creating the rest of the projects for my upcoming Stamp-a-Stack this weekend. And here I am, at the end of the day (it's night time on Wednesday as I am typing this) and I did it! I finished creating the cards and treat holders and I cut all the card stock and organized the supplies. I am once again impressed by the power of intention. So many times I don't set my intention - and I find myself lost in my minutes - flittering here and there through mindless and meaningless activities - not being purposeful. I don't believe I have to be actively doing something of substance every minute of every day. I am a strong believer in just being. What I am not happy with is when I'm in the limbo - when my doing has no intention or when I am not allowing myself to just be. So I am working on setting my intention - whether it is toward what I spend my time doing or just allowing myself to be.
Today's card began with the thought of putting wings on a heart and grew from there. I used a scallop circle as a mask to do some sponging with Marina Mist to create the sky. The retired Sanded background stamp adds some grit to the background. I hope you like it!
