Be free-floating, allowing the situation to surround you, and be in it. Take in the full surroundings, including the temperature of the water.
This may bring incredible clarity, presence and focus. This is what is means to be a jellyfish.

Ready for the Shopping Crazies? Take it Easy.....

Well, the days keep passing, and the time keeps ticking. Before you know it, Christmas, Hanukkah, or whatever holiday you celebrate this time of year, will be right upon us. You want to give something special, but you have those difficult to buy for people on your list. Gift cards can seem so generic on their own.

But sometimes that is the best option. SO - give it in a very special, handmade, gift card holder.  There are so man different kinds so you have plenty to choose from.

Many of these can also hold that other oh so generic, but oh so practical gift - money.  But keep it hidden until it's opened in one of these.

Or perhaps you want to fit a small gift in a very special sort of gift wrap. There is something quite special about a mini, handwoven basket stocking.

Another benefit to this type of gift giving is that when the weather is frightful, you do not have to treck to mall and go from store to store. No fighting the snowflakes outside.

This little mitten will keep those gift cards warm.

Of course, little stockings are cozy warm too.

Let the kids enjoy the snowmen outside, and shop from your computer. Put their 'get whatever you want' gift in this cute guy.

Any one of these, or the others I have featured here, here, and here, should really make the holidays Merry.

Thanksgiving is right around the corner, and so is the crazy shopping season. Take it easy, shop Zibbet, and give the maybe not so personal gift  in one of the very special gift card holders you will find there.
