My latest obsession, other than knitting, is meditation jars. …. Okay, okay, okay. That’s just what I call a glitter jar to make it seem more bougie and cool Mom. But, honestly, glitter jars may be used to sooth kids, but they are just as effective for adults. I have the videos to prove it.
After making my first jar I shot a quick video to show some friends online. And I immediately wanted to shoot a better video. .
After the shooting the video I got to thinking about all those craft videos that fast forward though a craft project. LOOK YOU CAN MAKE A CANDY GERANIUM, SO FAST SO EASY!
Anyone who has ever done a candy geranium knows it’s not fast and it’s not easy.
I’ve actually grown rather weary of those five minute, fast craft videos. Yes, they sell the project. But, they’re useless in seeing how to actually do the project. And deceptive.
I wanted to make a video that slowed things down and allowed you to actually enjoy watching the process. That’s the inspiration behind this video. Personally I really enjoy watching someone work their craft. So, this is going to be the first in a series where I work a craft and slow things down.
And honestly, make a meditation jar for your children and for yourself.
