Travel with Intention

EMILY’S BITES OF FUN:

Winter is travel time and traveling, especially when it involves exploring new regions or corners of the world, is a rich source of inspiration for many craftspeople.  The next time you are planning a trip, purchase several clear plastic sleeves meant to hold slides or small photographs (available at office supply stores). These ready-made sheets are perfect for collecting miniature mementos such as coins, bottle caps, paper scraps, ticket stubs, magnets, and the like.  Then, the spoils of several trips can be stowed away in a binder, full of tiny items and trinkets to turn into some of your craftiest memories.

Can’t afford a trip right now?  Be a tourist in the place you live.  Get out and see new things and collect items from your own city or the cities around you.  You can share them with others by making a card and keep some for yourself.  Shadowboxes are a great way to keep some of these things.  Odds are you won’t live in the same city for the rest of your life.  Hold onto some memories.

Get out and go find some new places!

EMILY’S BITES OF FUN:

When was the last time you stashed your kids (or called in sick for a mental health day) and headed out to explore a place, a town, or a location you’ve never been? This is a treat many artistic types engage in on a regular basis, not only for the wealth of new ideas it can inspire but also to give themselves a break from the studio, the office, or the confines of wherever they spend their days.  Not sure where to go?  Ask friends, neighbors and other creative/artistic people where they go to get inspired.  Once you have arrived, ask the locals about other places they think you shouldn’t miss.  There is a fabulous time waiting for you!

christmas is 50 days away!

EMILY’S BITES OF FUN:

Just one word: The reality of living a creative life is that some days the well runs dry.  The good news is that sometimes it only takes a single word or phrase to jump-start the process again.

You can also play with words, change the spelling to something fun like girlfriends to gyrlfriends and other play on words. 

During this season there are a lot of great words to play with and use for inspiration: Joy, Reflect, Create, Just Breathe, Believe, Let Your Light Shine, Beauty, Peace, Thanks, Grateful,  and many more.  Take time to write what you see, what you are thinking about, look through a dictionary and use those words that come to mind that may bring a spark of magic into someone else’s life today.  Then, make a card, a wall hanging, a magnet, or something else to reflect that/those words.

AS WE GET UNDER WAY WITH THE HOLIDAYS

EMILY’S BITES OF FUN: 

Want to send a handmade greeting but don’t have a lot of supplies?

Simply stamp designs, fill them in with color, and voila! You’re done!

For Thanksgiving cards, use words like: Thankful, Thanks, Giving, Family, Gather, Turkey, etc.

Here are a few sentiments to get started with but there are plenty online also to inspire you for Christmas cards:

“May my sweetheart’s life be filled with millions of reason to smile. May everyday be a day worth looking forward to. I’m sending you all my love this Christmas. Merry Christmas to you sweetheart.” Anonymous

“The Magic of Christmas never ends and its greatest of gifts are family and friends, like you!”

“The gift of love, the gift of peace, the gift of happiness… May all these be yours at Christmas time!”

“From home to home, and heart to heart, from one place to another, the warmth and joy of Christmas brings us closer to each other.” –Emily Matthews

A NOTE FROM EMILY:

Find things and experiences to be thankful for, it changes your priorities and your perspective in life!

The Beauty of Paper to create keepsakes and treasures

EMILY’S BITES OF FUN: 

The Beauty of Paper:  One reason papercrafting is so popular is because the essential material, paper, is available in such variety, abundance, color and pattern.  Paper is everywhere and it is not intimidating at all. It is a realistic staple that we reach for with purpose in mind – to jot down a note, make a list, write to a friend or family member.  We use it to enter into all manner of exchange with ourselves and others almost daily.  What is remarkable about paper is that it is simple.  Not meant to remain in its natural state, paper is about change – we can crease it, apply a thin line in shapely swirls that become meaningful words, brush on pats of color, cut into new shapes, or fold it into wonderful creations.  With a new and pristine sheet of paper in hand, we may hesitate just slightly before making that first crease, tear, cut, or drafting that first line, but once we have crossed over that threshold, there is little to curtail our progress as we manipulate or decorate paper to create beautiful keepsakes to be treasured for a lifetime.  What is your next project with paper?  Send me an email and let me know – I would love to see it!
