The last year has been a journey for me. Good, bad, indifferent... I've learned a lot. I know where to focus my energy...and where not to. I've learned how to be me...with all of it's oddities, eccentricities, and quirks. I work on it daily.In any event...last April, my husband and I along with our dogs and gorgeous kiddies went to our house in Maine for a week. We spent it mostly taking lots of nature walks, doing lots of arts and crafts, puzzles, block building, etc. I did some small crafts at night for myself to soothe my soul.
I didn't have a ton with me. I just brought up a few tools and some scraps, knowing I wouldn't have a TON of time to craft.
I was journaling about what I considered to be PURE Bliss in my life and within that process I decided that I wanted to do something altered with these thoughts.
So...I looked around and grabbed a one of my kiddies mini raisin boxes. I used ribbon, paper and glittered scallop scraps to alter this box. I was so happy with how it came out. I then needed a way to take my thoughts and put them into my new Bliss Box.
I grabbed some notebook paper and some thing cardboard that was in the recycling bin from a cracker box or something. I doodled and wrote and decorated....making sure that my doodled journaling piece would fit in the box. Once I was done I folded it a couple of times and considered myself done. I love this tiny reminder of all the wonderful things in my life...and all the things that I love.I hope you enjoy and are inspired by this piece!
