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

Reading Marney's book has given me a deeper and more comprehensive way of looking at time than ever before. It's not that it counters what my husband believes. Instead, Creating Time has given me a glimpse into the eternal nature of time. Creativity is that magical link that seems to bend time. Marney shares hundreds of stories, photos, art pieces and poems along with invitations to try activities. No matter where the book opens as I flip through the pages, I am inspired by the art, the words, the images and mostly the depth. Marney is the quintessential matchmaker, bringing together artists of all types. I am so grateful that Marney has taken the time to bring together so much beauty, energy, love and light into one place so that I can explore creativity in my own home at my own pace for years to come. I LOVE this book!!!!
"Creating Time Through Gratitude" (Chapter 6) is one of my many favorites. Creating a Gratitude Practice is such an inspired and enjoyable way of looking at and appreciating everything in your life. "Gratitude bridges the entire time continuum," is so true--when I stop to appreciate my children, I appreciate not just who they are today, but who they have been in my whole life. I see my successful vibrant daughters, my grandchildren and the babies they were. When I appreciate the gifts my grandmother and mother have given me, I see my entire life with them--even though they are no longer here. In this tiny second, my whole life unfolds inside my heart.
The artwork throughout the book is a wonderful way to show time outside of a clock, inside your heart and soul. Even if you think you aren't an artist, try the exercises--amazing things happen when you get lost in time by creating a physical object or writing! Try the ARTsignment Stop. Watch. You might be surprised at the ideas you have about time. Ideas that may have been holding you back from the full delight and pleasure your life has to offer--an invisible barrier you didn't know was there. Ideas that you now can start to change because you know about them.
There are so many other fascinating ideas in this book--open it anywhere and dive in. It's worth your time.
