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

Mixed Up Media Chix - Summertime Blog Hop!

I have a fun project to share today!  Very excited about this one.  I've been working on it for over a week and...well...it's still not completely done, but it's getting there!
I've done this for a super wonderful friend that is going through a bit of a rough time.  She needs encouragement, so I'm putting together a little art journal to let her know how special she is.
And while this is a special gift, it's also part of a really fun blog hop I'm participating in with the other Mixed Up Media Chix!   Follow along...You'll truly be inspired.
So, if you need to start at the beginning:
