The Self Care Swap

I recently took part in a winter self care swap organised by Janine. I don’t have a whole lot of time for self care and certainly when I think self care I think ‘time to myself’ …  probably creative time rather than highly perfumed pampery stuff. But I like presents … especially putting them together for someone else … so I decided this would be a fun swap to be part of.

So I received my swap person’s completed questionnaire and began putting together a package of blue, white, brown goodies … some handmade but resisting the urge to go vintage because my swap person has more modern tastes.


I sent my package off on Monday last week and on Wednesday I was very excited to find this box on my doorstep … filled with good things …

… many, many good things … little packages of pink and a gorgeous handmade card …

… and a special little package …

… with french things inside!

… sometimes my ‘self care’ time is simply a quick drink, maybe something small but yummy to eat and a quick flick through a mag … this was the perfect self care package for me!

There were also candles and body wash and a pink poofy thing … this kind of self care needs a little more time to enjoy … and I did search … but this box of goodies did not include the gift of TIME … I had to work that one out for myself … I did manage to have a quick soak in the bath on Saturday evening, very enjoyable it was too.

There was also a couple of cute stamps and a pretty bracelet … oops at the blurry photo … must have been my excitement at unpacking such a cool box of goodies.

Thanks so much Heidi … I really appreciate the thought you put into this … and the French touches too!


Oh and the box of goodies I sent … can be seen here.
