Day 13 1/2 : Going to Farsala to craft with Dimitra! So wear your artistic mood and enjoy!
So, it is Christmas!
It is without a doubt the most amazing time of the year
for loads of people around the world. Every city buzzes with activities and
revelers are keeping up the celebrating pulse high, days before the actual day.
Bustling streets and well-known shops wear their exquisitely golden, glittering
ornaments, trying to get all of us into Christmas spirit. To be honest!
have managed once again to create a mysterious yet magic atmosphere. Is it
about time we should do something about it?? I guess we are all willing to put
some effort on waking up the artistic side of us, which indeed was well-hidden
inside us throughout the year. Let’s start crafting! Basically, it is not as
difficult as it may seem. Just add lots of creativity and use your infinite
imagination! You are a teacher!
Who else can have more than you? Think how many
times you had to improvise during difficult working days. In fact, there are
plenty simple things around us, ready to be transformed into little priceless
pieces of Art. In other words, there is no need to spend valuable time
searching for the appropriate shops or driving miles to get to them or spend
your money on expensive decorations. Take a big breath…and think! Take a good
look around you. Go to a nature walk!
Not having enough free time for a small
escape? Then, allow yourself a few minutes to go for a walk to the nearest
park. To your surprise, you will find out that numerous simple and beautiful
things that nature generously has been giving us for all this time can be your
piece of artwork. Search for anything that will stir your attention.
instance, a branch of a tree that was probably, accidentally left aside by the
city park cleaners. Collect some yellowish leaves from the plane trees, some
acorns or even small tree trunks. Afterwards, find yourself to the nearest
bookshop (this is your natural place isn’t it?) and purchase some glue and lots
of glitter! Putting them together is the most entertaining part (why don’t you
invite some friends for some teamwork ?) . The result will reward you, believe
me. What is the most important is that you must bear in mind that you should
relish every moment of making your artistic, magic craft. Either small or
great, it is yours. It is your own creation and do not forget that it is unique
because you have put your Soul and so much Love in it. That is Christmas after
