Do you make New Year Resolutions? I haven't done so in years as I find making them, let alone following through with them for 365 days, to be rather daunting. Recently, I heard of substituting the word "Resolution" with "Intention" which is supposed to be a bit more approachable. So this year, for the first time in many a long year, I came up with a few intentions. The first is to take pleasure in the little things, to be more present in the moment. It's a knack I once had but somehow lost along the way. What could be more pleasurable than a cheerful bunch of gerbera daisies given to me by my nearest and dearest?
Next, is working on that ever fleeting sense of gratitude. I started a gratitude journal and, like a long disused muscle, it's getting easier and easier to write in the pages.
I am embarrassed to admit that I'm not very crafty. I'm embarrassed to admit as well that I'm not a naturally tidy and organized person. Books, especially, are tricky to display with the myriad colours of their covers. Then I discovered the wonderful idea of creating book bundles, tying them with ribbon and adding a handmade charm.
What a perfect way to display books. And, I get to exercise my smallish craft skills by indulging in my fascination for pretty beads and vintage buttons.
May your New Year be filled with wondrous possibilities!
