I knew within the first couple of pages of Crafting Calm, by Maggie Oman Shannon, I knew this book was meant for ME!!! One of the first things that Maggie talks about is her work space is not clutter free. Like me, Maggie needs the visual of her craft idea’s and treasures around her to work. People look at my work space and ask ‘how can you work in here?? There are so many distractions. But, for me, having piles of fabric, rows of paint, photo’s everywhere is calming for me. It brings out my creativity! With Crafting Calm you can literally “craft the crazy away!”
Crafting Calm is more powerful than a craft book. It’s a spiritual guide, it’s peace of mind, it’s calming and exploring your creativity. Maggie gives idea’s, history and quotes throughout the book. Crafting Calm brings together creativity, spiritual practice mixed together with the love of arts and crafts to bring calm into your life.
This book is AWESOME!!! It’s written in such a caring and loving way that you can’t help embracing your new outlook. Seeing future creations out of ordinary things. As theologian Mary Daly put it: “It is the creative potential itself in people that is the image of God.”
