Five Things Friday: Relaxation Ideas

Relaxation ideas.jpg

Last week I took a look at some of the ways I like to become mindful of my surroundings and take time (when I get the chance) to relax.  This week I’m going to share some of the ways I like to relax when I get a chance to get crafty.  Hopefully they’ll inspire you to make a creation of your own!


Arya's birth card1. Papercrafts – make a card for a celebration.  This one was for a new arrival to the world.

2.  Bake – This Chocolate and Raspberry tart that I made for Mother’s Day a few years ago was rather delicious!

3. Sewing – Before children, I used to do a lot of sewing, now I don’t seem to find the time.  This sewn canvas is one of my favourite pieces.

4. Make something for someone else – These are some chocolate cupcakes that I made for my Cinderella as part of the ‘Good Fairy’ scheme that we had in one of the schools I worked in.    This is an explanation of how the Good Fairy scheme worked.

5. Make stuff with the kids.  This was a castle that I made from a humble cardboard box.  The kids had more fun playing with this than they did their Christmas presents that year!



Thanks for taking the time to stop by. Leave a comment, I read each and every one!
