#SlowTheForkDown Instagram Challenge

In countdown and conjunction with exhibition THE FORK at Galleri LOD, I invite you & myself to 10 days of mindful eating.

Each day - starting tomorrow - I’ll post a picture on Instagram relating to the 10 mindful eating tips.

Join in by following me on Instagram http://instagram.com/sdorphjensen
1. Letting me know you’re joining (I need support too:)
2. Use the 10 mindful eating prompts for inspiration, one a day, all at once or make your own :)
3. TAG your mindful eating pics #SlowTheForkDown so we can all give support & encouragement to each other!!!
Challenges are so much more fun when done together.

For more info read the article on my blog http://www.dorphjensen.com/2015/02/slow-the-fk-down/

2/30 At my bench today - a vintage spoon in transition. 
For 30 days I'll be sharing a ‪#‎daily‬ photo from my ‪#‎workbench‬. 
As I'm relaunching my silversmithing business I'm hoping this project will help me see my own work in a new way and get back into the habit of photographing my process.
