Peace in your mind.

It’s Sabbath Sunday! This is the day to focus on resting or re-charging. Something clicked in me this week (again) as I was talking to a few of my friends. As I was listening they were talking about how exhausted they were both physically and mentally. I know how the mental games can wear on you.

Back in November and December I had finally said enough to some family drama. At first I was exhausted and my head was quite foggy. But after finally being at peace I began to rejuvenate. Life became better and the fog lifted.

So I will remind you that to be rested is just not a physical thing, but also a mental one. Let go of what is bothering you so you can re-charge from the inside out. Sometimes this seems to be easier said than done, but is a necessity.

Happy Crafting and rest well!

Look inside too.

It’s Friendship Friday! This is the day to focus on giving back or paying it forward. So many times I talk about what to do to volunteer or how to help those outside your home. What about inside? How do you treat those that you live with?

I want to encourage you today to do something special for those closest to you. It doesn’t have to involve spending money. Write a nice note, smile more, have a better attitude…and on and on and on.

For me it is often how I handle things when I am tired and cranky. Do I just say I am tired and need a little space? No. Usually it involves a bit of drama. I want to encourage you to be honest with those you love and not make drama where it doesn’t need to be.

So hug those you love a little longer or a little harder. You never know when you may not be able to any longer.

Happy Crafting!

With inky fingers,

Joni 🙂
