Well, this last week has been busy!.... but I made time for reading and doing some interaction with this book by Keri Smith, FINISH THIS BOOK.
When it comes down to it, when you read a book, things are required of you and your surroundings in order to really enjoy and digest what is in a book. The key? A relaxing chair and SILENCE!
For instance, right now as I am writing this blog Shelley and Rob are having a conversation, which is great and all, but I cannot hear a thing. (Mom complains about this all the time, now I understand!)
But, I realized how interactive this book really is. It equips you to not only learn how to channel your inner artist, but it also gives you the tools to mentally prepare to read it!
Notice the pictures I included with this posting. The book encourages you to make a "do not disturb" sign, just like in a hotel. The difference is, when others see this they will know that they need to bug off so you can enjoy your reading!
What do you think? How am I doing?
Wouldn't this be a cool project idea? Make yourself your own "do not disturb sign." You could carry it around with you at all times, and use it when you need to make time for yourself, or maybe you're just having a rotten day and don't want to talk.
You could screen print it on a t-shirt. I think it would sell!
Or a pendant? An image under resin!
Maybe it could be in a frame studded with rhinestones, or maybe you could use clay lettering made from Sculpey under the frame?
I dunno, but the point is this book is already starting to inspire me. Can't you tell? A week ago I wouldn't have even thought of anything like that!
Stay tuned to see where this book takes me next!
