Baby Bath Time in No Time! by Puj

The Puj Soft Tub is absolutely a life saver! We use it everyday and our baby loves it because it is so comfortable and soft.

Crafting as Soulcare

It's almost that time of year again--"The Holidays"--and whether you celebrate Christmas (the cultural or the religious variety), Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Winter Solstice, Pancha Ganapati, or any other lovely holiday that I've neglected to mention, gifts are probably involved. In my opinion friends, it's time to get your craft on! Crafting gifts expresses care, makes a smaller impact on our world and our wallets, and just generally makes a person feel hygge. How does crafting promote soulcare? ...more

These are all lovely ideas. For some of my sweet soulsisters I'm making matchbox shrines. I ...more
