Challenge- design something from nothing
This challenge was to create or design something from scratch to live in the moment
This week’s challenge was to design something from nothing. I am a bit of a big kid and I am always doodling or thinking about what I can paint or create next. It’s usual something to do with my house or garden. I loved Blue Peter as a child but my go at making things never quite looked like they should but never the less I enjoyed making them. Wake up is about living in the moment, stop dreaming and really being in the here and now. Sometimes I find this difficult and find myself daydreaming or my mind is rushing ahead with things that need doing or I find myself wishing my life away. I don’t want to waste a moment and yet sometimes, something holds me back.
I decided to get some crafting back in my life. I popped into a haberdashery and picked up some threads and found an old piece of linen that I had for years and decided to give it a modern twist, it only took me and afternoon and it was very calming I found. It may not be to anyone's taste but the message for me is a good one to be reminded of when anxiety is at large.
Not sure if this is what you had in mind Mark when you set up the challenge, but this is what I created.
I’ve since started working on a bear- for no one in particular just for me, just for fun and just for wake up.
