Sunday whispers – Wanna see my magic mirror?

When I was a little kid I loved fairytales. One of my favourites was Snowwhite. Of course I did not like the mean queen. But I loved the idea of owning a magic mirror. That would be awesome, wouldn’t it?

Imagine, a mirror that tells you how amazing and beautiful and wonderful you are. Whenever you are not feeling so great, all you need to do is look into your magic mirror and you would instantly know what a grand person you are. In my opinion every person should own such a magic mirror. Well, maybe not everyone. The mean queen certainly not. But you and me. ;-) 

Unfortunately up until now in my life I have not seen such a magic mirror anywhere. So I simply made my own first prototype:

Magic mirror / Zauberspiegel - mixed media project - by Ursula Markgraf

Okay, I have to admit, the magic part is a little … slim. But as it proofed kinda hard to hunt down some sorcerers or witches it was kinda difficult to put actual magic in it. So I did the next-best thing. I certainly think that this mirror will work. Every time you look into it, you will feel a lot better. 

I made this magic mirror for my daughter and the sentences on it are in French. But of course you could make a similar mirror in German, English or Gaelic ;-). You can make one for someone you care about. Or, for yourself.

What would your magic mirror tell you ever morning?

P.S. Would you like some instructions or templates on how to make your own magice mirror for yourself or your kids?

Sunday whispers is a little series. My goal is to post something shortish but inspiring for you each Sunday – hopefully together with some art – so that you have a little incentive to slow down, reflect and think. I know how crazy weeks can be, but after all, it is Sunday. :-) Enjoy and let me know what you think. You can find the other Sunday whisper posts HERE.

    Liebe Ursula,
    das ist eine sehr gute Idee! Einen Zauberspiegel bräuchte wohl jede von uns ab und zu mal… ;-) Und Deiner ist ein besonders schönes und hilfreiches Exemplar. Gefällt mir sehr!

    Dankeschön dafür, daß Du das Thema aufgegriffen hast! Dies hier ist unserer: http://wiesamtundseide.blogspot.de/2014/02/spieglein-spieglein-der-wand.html
    Eine Anleitung für einen Zauberspiegel benötige ich persönlich eher nicht, aber es kann sehr gut sein, daß soetwas bei anderen sehr gut ankommt. Die Zeit ist sozusagen reif für ein kleines bißchen Zauber… :-)

    Einen schönen Sonntag Dir, und liebe Grüße, Sathiya

    ich liebe sie heute noch.

    So ein Zauberspiegel erfreut bestimmt so manch’ kleine Prinzessin.

    liebe Grüße
