Being a creative type I am always imagining what I could do with all of the different supplies available these days. As of late I have been really working the paper. With all of the punches available these days and the beautiful papers, it very hard to resist creating something from paper. How far we have come, from making fortune tellers and paper cranes as kids to beautiful tags and cards to express our feeling for one another. It occurred to me that having one of those fortune tellers available (in a more grown up version, well sorta) might not be a bad idea during these times. But instead of having fortunes like, Jimmy loves Amanda or You must jump up and down 15 times, we could have more positive affirmations. Perhaps something like, you future holds great potential for growth, or a loved one will honor you or you are loved. Or even limerick ones or one word daily aspirations. I was inspired from the daily aspirations by a basket a co worker has on her desk. It is full of little strips of paper that each have a positive message and you pick one out and it is yours for the day. It is a pick you up, mentally, when a day has been stressful as they can sometimes be. We all need a sense of fun in our day and what better way then to channel that child from long ago that knew how to play simply and have fun. I challenge you to take a an hour or two, an evening or a day and play. No expectations, no responsibilities just doing what you want when you want, and how you want. Enjoy….
