Resting by focusing.

As many of you know I am married to a professional musician.  And for those of you that know me even better, you know that my daughter is a budding musician as well.  With that being said I am pulling our segment on rest today straight from the staff lines of a musical score.

Do you know the purpose of a rest in music?  It is to give emphasis on a certain section (brass, woodwinds, percussion, etc.) while other sections are quiet.  It is also used after a difficult section in the music to allow the muscles to regain their composure so tone does not suffer.

So, you are probably asking what this has to do with crafting.  I want to remind you that it is okay to rest, especially after a huge project is finished or if it is just not coming together.  The ability to rest might just give you the edge to regain focus and create a masterpiece.

Happy Crafting!

With inky fingers,

Joni 🙂
