Editorial Reviews

Review

“Everyone wants more time, and time multiplies when you read this brilliant book! Creating Time is life changing, full of practical and magical ways to feel free, flowing, inspired, and gifted with time in your life.”
SARK, artist and author of Glad No Matter What

“If you feel like you are always running out of time, if you feel the daily pressure and stress of ‘not enough time,’ this book will expand your mind, open your heart, and YES, give you all the time in the world.”
Arielle Ford, bestselling author of Wabi Sabi Love

“In a society that seems to thrive on making us feel hurried and harried and pressed for time, this book stands firmly in the conviction that we have more time than we think we do and that we’re entitled to every delicious minute of it.”
Victoria Moran, author of Creating a Charmed Life

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I took an online workshop with this author so of course I was curious about this book. I actually created an image that I posted on her online gallery about "finding the time to do art." Now its funny to see this topic turn up a few years later after that. It is a common topic among those who make art, especially women whose time is divided between family and paid work obligations.

This book is largely a self-promotional work for the author's workshops and online gigs. There is nothing new in this book and I personally cannot figure out why so many are giving it the High Five for content. Northern Lights and Lark publishing put forth so many great books that are much more inspirational and content-filled than this volume. They also have much higher quality illustrations that inspire creative thinking and learning.

The oddest part of this book, which must be part of the marketing ploy, is that one has to become a facilitator [going through a training and paying extra $$$ to the author] to use these "time-worn" activities in practice with others. I hate to tell you but making a "gratitude garland" out of paper loops is as old as time itself. You cannot decree that only certain people can teach it. But maybe I have been thinking erroneously about this volume, because indeed the author is creating something that has to do with time. She has rediscovered simple art activities that are already part of the timeline of creative art [therapies and education] and has managed to sell them back to the rest of us in the current time zone.

Years ago I did a meditation in which the predominant image was a crocodile (ancient Egyptian symbol of time) seated on a throne. Because of the high-stress, multi-tasking life I was living at the time, it took me months to figure out that the universe (and/or my subconscious) was telling me that I was worshiping at the feet of TIME!. It's a chronic ailment of our times, and there are lots of books telling us what we might do about it. What makes this one different? Rather than attempting to tell us how to manage time better, Makridakis tells us that we need to apply the innate human ability of creativity to create time. Sound impossible? If so, this book is a gift which has your name on it.

The book is beautifully illustrated with original art that makes the author's concepts come alive, but the techniques she offers readers require no traditional artistic skill. Makridakis lets everyone start with a blank page. There are no mistakes, only explorations. Her goal is to help us think of time as both linear and NUMINOUS, and to begin consciously choosing which version of time we apply to any given situation in our lives. The shift in consciousness requires practice, but the practice in this case is playful. Are you ready to believe that playing can create more time? Makridakis makes a very compelling argument that it's true. Still skeptical? You can find out more about Makridakis and her ideas on her website, [...]. This book is definitely worth taking a serious look at.

Creating Time by Marney K. Makridakis is a book that changes your view on "time" forever. Just about everyone has said they don't have enough time to do something, but in reality we all have the time to do it. We just need to change our viewpoint on time and create time to do those things that we really want to do. This book will help you do it!

Creating Time is as the title suggests, a creative book that helps you to learn how to create time. There are a variety of books that tell us how to make time to do things or plan better so we have a 15 minute block of "me" time. What makes this book different is that we "create" the time for whatever purpose we want to use it for. Makridakis helps us to stop enslaving ourselves with time and instead work with it so it doesn't work against us.

The "ARTsignments" included throughout the book are creative projects that are used to help us change our view on time, and create something cool. There is no right or wrong way to complete the assignments, and there are many pictures of other people's creations to help serve as inspiration for the projects too. This book helps to not just create time, but also helps gently nudge us to create cool things to show our relationship with time.

I really enjoyed reading this book and doing the ARTsignments. I highly recommend this book for everyone that wants to create time, or just be more creative.

While many of us are used to the idea of taking time, or making time in our lives, Marney Makridakis is encouraging us to step up and CREATE time using the amazing set of tools in her new book: Creating Time: Using Creativity to Reinvent the Clock and Reclaim Your Life.

This book is a fabulous resource full of creative tools for re-examining our relationship with time. It is also a scrumptious visual feast of artwork resulting from people using those tools. This book is truly a collaborative effort, with over 80 contributors who have shared both their artwork and their stories to illustrate, in all senses of the word, Marney's explorations into the multi-faceted nature of time.

Marney, with her typical magic, has turned managing time into imagining time! Reading this book will inspire you, using the tools this book offers will change your relationship with time forever.
