LovelyCAL: part 5

Stop. Think! Listen ...

Have you heard that saying: Each day spend an hour in nature, if you are really really busy - two.


Yesterday I was running around like a squirrel and going crazy because I couldn't figure out few things I was suppesed to (I'll just skip the boring details) .. got mad, ate waaaay too much chocolate and then I dropped everything and just stopped. Plain stopped for almoust 24 hours, forced myself to enjoy downtime and at the end I did :) and after - miracle happened - in about half an hour of productiveness I figured out all of those things that bugged me before! (now I just have to do them :D but the crazy part is over)

So - weave in ends and enjoy it! It is good for you to have some down time! and weaving ends is really good downtime, that still counts as crafting 😜 And if you get to do it outside it should be real nice - that's where the magic happens - it was for me because I live in that part of the world that has spring now..
