Wish Box


For a while I've been thinking about making a wish box. I read a book that recommended that a fun and easy way to energize your hopes and desires to create a box and put in it all the things you wished for. This appealed to me a great deal because you can pop your wishes in box and then let it go. I really wanted to do it.

But then I got rather particular about the kind of box I wanted, the kind of size it should be, etc. I shopped. I looked. Actually I even had an accident at a store picking a possible box off a high shelf and having a heavy glass candle holder fall directly on my tooth! (I was okay though) Being particular definitely slowed the process down. In fact, I forgot about it entirely.

Then the other day I was reading Jenn's post about dream boxes and it sparked my memory. And amazingly I had a box from my wonderful new rubber boots. I got straight to work! I had the best time sitting on the floor, drinking several cups of tea, pulling pictures out of magazines with a well-loved movie playing in the background. Time just flew by. And I have to tell you looking at the collage on top just makes me beam. This is so, so, so me.

And here's the kicker. When I was going through mags I came across a picture of a pair of boots I just went crazy for. And today I found them and bought them! The wishes are coming true all ready!

What are you going to wish for?

Thank you for posting a link to Jenn the other day, because I went exploring (very briefly - will go back) and she has so much great stuff there. (Can't stop thinking about her womani-festo...) Those boots! I crave boots like that! Must get to working on wish box...STAT! (Of course, I'm already thinking WHAT box to use...) ;) (Don't think I got your email...re your Twitter...)

That was quick manifestation magic! I am so envious of those boots, I love them. They're exactly what I'm looking for right now, they're stunning! Lucky woman you are Jamie.

Funny, I just wrote a post about how being particular was important but in this case, it's true, it can slow things down considerably!

I absolutely ADORE re-decorating shoe-boxes!!! That is how my little box shop got started... I decided to decorate a box to send some swap goods in... and was addicted. Unfortunately, I ran out of shoeboxes... and thus, the mini-boxes began.

I love the idea of wish boxes... kind of like the dream box I made. *pondering this*

those boots look JUST LIKE the fantasy boots in my head! WHAT are they?

and i love this box idea.

today, i did something really really huge for myself (i'll write about it at some point), and i realized that some time ago, when one of our cats got ill, i just stopped dreaming about what we could do with our lives. i just stopped all the fun wishing and fantasizing...the GOOD kind. Poof! gone.

So now to make a box... :)
