Drawing as a way to help you focus and concentrate, rather than distracting you.

Here is an interesting piece about doodling that says it helps you think.  This is what Zentangle® does as well. The mindful, intentional and relaxing zentangle practice can get very focused and time flies by.  The simple act of drawing helps you stay engaged in what you are doing, and it opens doors to getting better concentration.

Christmas gift books

I decided to add a personal touch to some books I gave at Christmas this year. The book is an old favourite of mine, one every woman should have. Simple Abundance: A Daybook of Comfort and Joy by Sarah Ban Breathmach. It was the perfect activity to be doing in such a busy season.

And now let us begin the New Year

Full of things that have never been.
