Today's Lesson From The Craft Room: Expand Time By Being Mindful
It is so easy to say that we are too busy to do something. Too pressured by the ticking minutes. Too rushed to stop for a minute. What I have been finding is that I can make time expand by being mindful. Instead of allowing myself to multi-task, simul-task or go into task overdrive I am choosing moments to just be mindful of exactly what I am doing. When I give something or someone my full attention, time seems to expand for me. When I am harried and rushing, the clock seems to work against me. When I am calm, the clock slows down for me. How can you expand time by being mindful with what you are doing?
Today I attempted my first pop-up box card (you can find a tutorial on Splitcoast...and I may attempt a tutorial of my own at some point in the not-too-distant future :). I brought together old stamp sets, new Typeset designer series paper and some other non-SU! odds and ends to create this card. I love how this card is a surprise for the recipient since it arrives flat with just the outside paper showing. I even created a matching envelope using the Typeset DSP. I know this is not the last pop-up box card I will be making :)
