Rest is different to everyone.

It’s Sabbath Sunday! This is the day to rest and re-charge.

I am amazed at how many different ways there are to rest. Some need to have a fun activity to do, some nap, watch a movie…the possibilities are endless.

For today my rest will be at the shopping mall. This is not my version but when school starts and a few things are needed it is down the hill we go.

What are you doing today on this long weekend to re-charge?

Happy Crafting!

P.S. Please remember that I am closed tomorrow for the holiday.

Retail therapy.

It’s Sabbath Sunday! Today’s the day to take to rest and re-charge. Since it is Father’s Day it is hubby’s choice on what to do. So it looks like we are driving down the hill to do a little bit of shopping (new flip flops for him) and enjoy a pastrami sandwich at Sherman’s Deli.

Do you have plans today?

Happy Crafting!

Resting by shopping?

It’s Sabbath Sunday and I am having a slow morning (thankfully).  While I don’t especially like shopping I know it needs to get done once in a while.  My daughter, Tara, is the same way.  If the fairy with the magic wand could magically make things appear she would do it.  But instead we will be doing a bit of running to find some new jeans for her.

While it is not too restful for me to shop I am choosing to look at the silver lining.  I get to spend time with her and probably have a yummy lunch too.  I know it won’t take long since it is not our favorite thing, but it is time together.  I don’t see her much with rehearsals, school, and friends.  Now that she is driving it is even less.

I don’t say this for pity, but instead to remind you (and myself) that it’s our perspective on things.  Instead of saying I “have to” I am now saying I “get to”.  It’s amazing how your attitude changes.

Is there something you need to shift your perspective on?

Happy Crafting!

Companies give back.

It’s Friendship Friday!  This is the day to focus on giving back and paying it forward.  I know everyone shops, so today I am going to encourage you to shop smarter.  Many companies are now giving back and it often impacts right down to where you choose.

For example, Amazon now has Amazon Smile.  A percentage of your order goes back to a non-profit of your choice.  It’s the same shopping experience but with a bigger smile.

Many of our crafters are involved with giving back by serving on non-profit boards or volunteering.  Here are just a few:

  • Boys & Girls Club of Yucca Valley
  • Yucca Valley Music Boosters
  • Theatre 29
  • Hi Desert Cultural Center
  • Tuba Christmas
  • All Things Kabuki
  • 4-H
  • Hearts
  • Morongo Basin Humane Society
  • Twentynine Palms Rotary
  • Copper Mountain College Foundation
  • 29 Palms Food Pantry

So if you haven’t chosen a non-profit to give to when shopping on Amazon you have some choices.  With a little bit of effort we can make those dollars stretch just a bit further.

Happy Crafting!

Sun, shopping, and flip flops.

So today instead of resting I am breaking out of the routine.  I am using some hydrating lotion to keep my skin from peeling after yesterday’s Woof Walk.  I didn’t get burned but I’m not used to the wind any more.  And I am doing some shopping.  This crafty girl needs a new pair of wedges, sandals, or flip flops.  The family and I are enjoying a great lunch and are going hunting for this season’s sandals.  Wish me luck.

What are you doing today to get out of the normal routine?

Happy Crafting!

With inky fingers,

Joni 🙂
