Managing Time


These are some bookmarks I made recently, I made a couple for Mother's Day to go with book vouchers as both the Mum's I buy for are in the process of moving house. I seem to have quite a few 'practice' charms that I will not make up into jewellery but do not want to waste. The first is a soldered page pebble, the second two 'beaten' book plates riveted together.
My head continues to buzz with creative ideas and yet time is finite and I must manage it - without beating myself up. A couple of times lately I have decided there is too much to do - so I won't do anything on 'the list' and have instead thrown myself across the bed with a good book, bliss. Today the sun was shining so brightly, after forecast rain, and I HAD to spend an hour in the garden, then catch up with some friends who live just out of town; far enough that the air is clean and quiet and the sun makes the damp earth give off it's own aroma.
Enjoy your week friends.

These bookmarks are a lovely idea Julie! I love the birdy one. It is just beautiful.

Glad you spent some time in your garden and then out with friends. I did a happy sigh thinking of you in clean air and standing on beautiful earth.

Julie, I like the bookmarks, I'm in love with soldering. Things just don't look the same around the house anymore, always looking for something to solder.

Thanks,
Mary

You are definitely being Good to the Mum's !

The bookmarks are like treasures ! Gosh, they are little works of art - like jewelry. I wonder that I would use it for a BOOK MARK ? no way ! I might lose it.

Anyway, Lucky Moms ! And wonderful work !
