I am practicing breathing in and breathing out.

Each day in this New Year, in this new month, I am using a card for inspiration.

I have it on my desk in a butterfly card holder.

I have lots of books for inspiration.

I have lots of books to teach me.

I am drying my Christmas roses. I want to make rose petal beads.
I am gathering my supplies.
I want to make prayer ropes and rosaries.

Creating scared space is part of my cleaning and organizing.
Finding ways of making each moment mindful.

I am reading and learning.

I am dreaming.

i think being mindful of what we are doing each day is a key to being happy and content. there are just too many things that can distract us. i would like to see your rose beads...when you are done with them. sounds interesting.
i am always in dream mode.
happy january.

Dear Marmee,
Being in the moment is being in love with life for me.
I posted about the rose beads on Artful Life this past week.
I shall check to see if they have dried. The next stage is to spray them with a sealer. I have more rose petals so I can make another batch. I shall keep making the rose beads. I plan on using them for prayer ropes and for worry beads. I would like to do a bowl of rose beads to give as tokens. I have an idea of making rose paper too. I want to make paper for journals.
I always have something going on the art table....
