Description

Mindful Thoughts for Makers is a lovingly-crafted little book celebrating the meditative beauty and nature of making. In it, Ellie Beck reveals why creating with our hands is uplifting, rewarding and soothing for the mind, body, and soul.

Honoring rituals, noticing the internal quiet, creating time, and finding your flow are all explored in this charmingly-illustrated collection of reflections.

The importance of making mistakes, respecting your creativity, appreciating dirty hands, and noticing the mundane moments, together form a meaningful tool every maker will cherish.
