Creating geometric wood wall art can be a fun and creative project. Just like full-size wood home décor made out of reclaimed wood planks, this one has a similar pattern, but it is much smaller, easier to make, more affordable and suitable for small spaces. It uses wooden coffee stirrers, which you can collect over time after having your coffee, or you can get a bag of them in a craft store.
Google Lens brings up information relevant to your original images, identified by visual analysis.

How are you doing? I am sitting softly in July, carefully balancing the systemic need to slow down for summer (a privilege for many, but not all and usually not for me), and the business needs to move forward with new ideas.
Stamping fabrics can be not only a very relaxing activity but also extremely rewarding since you can admire your creation for years to come. Previously I have stamped our sofa covers using rubber stamps and a couple of tote bags and kitchen towels using potato stamps. This time I decided to stamp a t-shirt using everyday objects.
This drink not only looks beautiful, it has a tangy taste similar to cranberry juice with a floral and fruity aroma, and it is packed with antioxidants and vitamin C.
Rock painting can be a great way to practice mindfulness as it allows you to focus your attention on the present moment while engaging in a creative activity. Remember, the goal is to relax, reduce stress and anxiety and enjoy the process of creating, not to produce a perfect piece of art. So, have fun and let your creativity flow!
The clocks have gone forward, and days are getting longer. At this time of year, many people plan a spring clean of the home. The clean may involve decluttering the kitchen cupboards, shredding old bills, recycling unwanted clothes, and giving the hallway a new lick of paint. When you finally get to relax in your shiny, clean home, it can leave you feeling refreshed and energised.
Cleaning your physical environment is a great way to feel better generally. But how about a mental spring clean to sweep out the old unhelpful beliefs and stories you tell yourself?
Glitter jars (or calm-down jars) have been used as a mindfulness practice for children and adults for years. When someone is struggling with their emotions, the glitter in a shaken jar is like their thoughts, which like the glitter, calms down eventually.
I find watercolours very satisfying. Sometimes only playing with colours and not necessarily creating anything in particular works for me. During the lockdown, I used to do a daily 15-minute watercolour practice, and it felt great. I’m trying to return to this, even if not every day. I try to find a couple of minutes to myself to relax and watch the pigment spread on the paper.
