Life is pretty stressful right now and I’ve quickly come to realise that it can bring out the best and worst in people. I can’t control what other people say and do, but I can control how I react to that. When I’m making decisions I know that the best ones are those that don’t compromise my core values. I weigh things up and then after careful thought I do what my heart tells me is right. There’s no point dwelling on things. Deal with what’s important and within your control, and don’t waste time and energy worrying about everything else. Life’s too short.
With that in mind, today’s project is a very simple one.
FOR MY HEART AND HEAD
I began with a 2″ x 5-1/2″ strip of Thick Whisper White Card and shaped one end using the Delightful Tag Topper Punch.
Then using Tuxedo Black ink I stamped the keyboard image from the Music From My Heart Stamp Set towards the bottom. Next I added the “forget your trebles” sentiment, followed by two of the music notes from the set.
To complete the bookmark I cut two 6″ pieces of Basic Black Twine from the Country Club Twine Combo Pack. Then I threaded them through the hole at the top of the bookmark and tied them together with a simple knot. Finally I used the piercing tip of my Take Your Pick Tool to tease apart the twine down to the knot and I was done.
This bookmark may be simple, but it carries an important message. Whether it’s through papercrafting, reading, knitting or something else, find a way to forget your troubles, even if only for a short while. Your head and your heart will thank you for it!
