Winter Spa

Remember some time ago, I mentioned that I was a Chemo-Angel? Well, today (this morning before I left for work), I finally took the opportunity to put together a little spa kit for my patient.

I figured now that the holidays were over, she might really be interested in decompressing and taking at least one long, warm bath. Hopefully, she's up to it.

Here is a picture of the kit I put together.



I gave her baths salts (unscented), some essential oils in small vials (so she can scent her salts and use the rest to scent her space), a tiny candle holder and a few tealight candles that smelled pretty nice, a handmade bar of soap and a mit to go with it...and the BEST...an eye mask that you heat up in a pan of hot water (or conversely cool down in a bowl of ice).

OHHHHH....And last week (I forgot to mention this), I finally used a gift certificate I got from my friend, Heather, to have a massage. I had a Shiatsu Acupressure message, and it was AMAZING. I almost fell asleep. It was really hard to return to work after that. The woman has been doing this for about 20 years, I think she said. She has her basement setup as her "parlor". It was really nice.

She just updated her new website, too, so if you're in the Delaware area, you might consider an appointment. She's great: Relaxing Touch Body Works

My Rising Sign

Your Rising Sign is Taurus


You are the ultimate rock - stable and centered.
People turn to you in crisis and count on you for calm.
Stubborn and strong minded, you can't be pushed around.
You are also tenacious, and you always will stick with something difficult.
A bit fan of nature, you're attracted to the beauty of the outdoors.
And sometimes, you find it easier to relate to animals than people.

What's Your Rising Sign?

Well, okay, I don't know about stable.
And surely, my husband, at least, would argue about coming to me for "calm".

But the rest, yeah.

Inspirational Unity Blog Hop

I have three huge passions related to art: photography, jewelry making, and paper crafts.

Above combines two of those passions: jewelry making and paper crafts. The necklace featured is a gift for a friend.

I used Unity Stamp Company stamps in all the projects shown in the picture above. If you look closely, you'll even see that I used the Hawaiian Border and the swirls in the lambs fleece of Love Ewe to make the bronze charms in the jewelry above!




Besides the stamps used, other materials included Bronz Clay, antiqued bronze findings, and various beads.

Of course, what gift isn't complete without packaging?



You can find the tutorial for the bag Here.
Paper and cardstock, punches, and ribbon used are from Stampin Up! while the stamp used is from Unity's March Kit of the Month.

People who know me know how I strive to use humor everyday...and especially to make light of otherwise stressful situations. So, my quote for the day has absolutely nothing to do with my project. It's …

Unity Blog Hop

My project today is a little mini album I put together to give to my daughter, who is exploring the possibility of traveling across America from Washington State to Delaware in July. I wanted to give her something to log and journal her adventures!

I used stamps from Unity Stamp Company's June and November Kits of the Month for the cover.

Inside the cover, I put a little note. She plans to hitch hike which is extremely bothersome to me. I want her to be safe! Maybe I'll suggest flying out and renting a car and doing a rode trip with her! That would curb my fears and will also be fun!


The journal block comes from their September Kit.

Unity Stamp Company is featuring a sale on their previous Kits! This is the time to get them if you don't have ENOUGH! See their sales here: Sales at Unity



The inside pages were not made with a KOM stamp, but this stamp is cool all the same. I love this flower. It's big and has many uses!
