So I made some cookies. Which isn’t a special thing to do in general, but for me it was: it’s ages since I did that the last time. And it weren’t just simple cookies, they are coming with a note, and now also with a handmade box.
Altogether, they turned into mindful cookies.
First I thought it all started with seeing the yellow cookie-stamper in a shop, while in the city and waiting for my car wheels to be changed:
The stamper and the letters looked like fun. They made me try to figure out words to write. And made me remember the homemade cookies I received a while ago, made by a colleague of my partner. Such a good surprise, one I wanted to return, or pay forward.
So I bought the stamper. And tried it this weekend. Had fun. And without planning to, was all focused on each step of the cookie-making.
Once the cookies were ready, I thought about a wrapping – and then had the idea to fold a paperbox myself, based on my november mandala.
Such a good, simple joy. Especially with the november mandala pattern and the way it looks as a box. Tomorrow, the colleague will receive her little box.
And I want to try a new mandala – I have a zen-color book here. Will see how that works out.
