Hi there. Thanks for popping in. Woke up with a washing machine head this morning – a real spin cycle. Don’t ask me why. I guess it just happens when there are a few uncertainties, a few changes. (Maybe it’s Pottery withdrawal?! Half term!)
But TV prep was the order of the day, regardless of the scatterbrain. The show must go on, right?! And there was no way I could blog with that head on me! So I settled down to the Groovi project. It may not be the best ever – but it certainly cleared my head! I decided to just go with perforating, to exemplify how you can get really cool depth and interest as a total beginner. Prick, prick, prick. Focus on the holes. Concentrate on the lines. Make sure it is neat. Etc etc. I think the Lightwave underneath, the light peeping through the holes with each perforation is quite mesmerising too…
Having to concentrate on the perforating steered my mind away from the traffic, from whatever was causing noise in my head, traffic. It works it really does. And I enjoyed it immensely!
By the time I mounted the piece on the black card, I was chilled – really truly chilled! Want to have a look? (Not inside my head! At the card!)
I have to go to a meeting now, but I just wanted to share that moment of Clarity with you. Groovi definitely helped me calm my mind this morning. I can tell it has a positive physical impact, because my chest gets really tight when I am anxious, as if I have drunk far too much coffee, or lost my purse. I am sure you know what I mean. But now I am calm, the spin cycle has stopped – and all is well. And I’ve got loads of tips and tricks in that little card to show folks who are starting out on their Groovi journey. Or who get washing machine heads.
If you’d like to how it all helps to clear the mind, watch Maria work her magic with Groovi Plates from 6pm on HOCHANDA.
