Resting by giving back.

It’s Sabbath Sunday!  While I’m enjoying a slower morning, I will soon be getting ready to go to the Festival of Wreaths at Copper Mountain College.  If you would like to join me it starts at 2 pm.

I firmly believe that giving back gives my soul peace knowing that I am helping to support the community I live in.  This is one way to rest and re-charge.  What do you do to help your community?

Happy Crafting!

Resting by processing

It’s Sabbath Sunday!  This week has been a whirlwind for me.  How was your week?

I am resting today by putting my feet up (still in Florida) and processing my notes and going through everything I have jotted and taken pictures of.

What is your process for de-compressing after you have received a ton of information?

Happy Crafting!

Are you resting today?

It’s Sabbath Sunday!  Are you resting today for me?  I am on day 2 of the Reach Out Morongo Basin’s Craft Fair.  I am not resting much but I am getting to talk to people and do a bunch of crafting.  It’s a break from the routine but not one with my feet up.

I would encourage you to go out of your comfort zone and do something different today.  If you always go get breakfast on Sunday morning maybe order your eggs different.  You just might discover something new and like it.

Happy Crafting!

A cushion to rest.

It’s Sabbath Sunday!  It’s my day to rest.  When I googled rest and clicked on images a keyboard pad came up.  It was a rest for your wrist when typing so the angle of your hands changes.  This reminds me that every once in a while I need to change how I do things to see them differently.  Don’t worry.  Nothing is changing, at least until January.

Every December I analyze what has worked and what has not for the year.  If any changes are to be made they will happen in January.  A survey will go out in December to ask you for feedback as I figure out what needs to be re-designed, added, or cancelled.

Just thought you’d want a heads up of what is to come.

Forceful rest.

It’s Sabbath Sunday!  Are you resting today?  I hope you are not having to find your front yard after all the rain we’ve had up here in the high desert.

I find it funny that sometimes we overbook ourselves and Mother Nature has a way of slowing us down.  In this case it was a sudden stop.  Nearly 18 hours later and the highway is still shut in parts.

So instead of Card Class yesterday we will move it back a week and I will get things done now instead.  Here’s to being able to re-focus and get a few things planned.  It’s amazing what happens when the main road to town is washed out.

Here’s to everyone staying safe and dry.

Happy Crafting!

Resting with girlfriends.

It’s Sabbath Sunday!  Sometimes the best way to re-charge is to check out with a few girlfriends and be a tourist.  So today I am taking a tour of the Orchid Nurseries, the Gem Show, and grabbing lunch.  What do you do for fun?

Happy Crafting!

Unplugging to re-charge.

It’s Sabbath Sunday for me!  I am resting by getting things cleaned up and getting a few things stamped.  I have many fairs coming up and much to plan for.  And at the end of the day I am hoping to be sitting at the fire pit toasting my marshmallow for my s’more.  I do have two questions for you.

  1.  Do you like cinnamon or regular graham crackers?
  2. Do you spread peanut butter on your graham cracker?

I am off of here to clean and then to go toast some marshmallows.

Happy Crafting!

Definition of rest.

It’s Sabbath Sunday and it’s my day of rest.  I googled “rest” and several things came up.  These examples are from the Merriam-Webster dictionary.

  1. We will not rest until we discover the truth.
  2. The workers were resting in the shade.
  3. He is resting comfortably after his ordeal.
  4. She went to her room to rest for awhile.
  5. The coach canceled practice to rest his team.

Other than the first one every other one is about allowing your body to find comfort to restore.  This allows for you to come back stronger and again to do more of what you had been doing.  I know with working out that the rest days are so important as long as you have done the work.

The second thing that pops up with rest is restaurants.  This implies to rest you must not work.

How do you enjoy your days off?

Happy Crafting!
