Paper Beads From Painted Paper

Today's Lesson From The Craft Room:  I am learning to eat with intention...
No distractions - not an iPhone, a computer, a television.  Beginning my meal with a recognition of the food that is about to nourish me.  Eating with mindfulness.  And then, after completing the meal, staying conscious for 15-20 minutes.  Maybe some light reading or a slow walk.  I am learning to eat with intention.
Today I wanted to share my first exploration into paper beads.  I cut a few strips from some of my painted paper and began winding :)  I haven't finished them yet - I want to coat them so that they will be water resistant.  I love the idea of having a project that I can take on the road with me when I travel.  I'm already envisioning cutting up airplane magazines :)

These are so pretty Michelle - lovely vibrant colours. I have seen them done with big holes too that you can string on to pandora style bracelets, they were sealed with stampin up's clear embossing powder and looked great - and you don't have to wait for any varnish to dry!

I'm sure mindful eating is a key to health - hope you keep us informed of how it changes things for you.
