Holiday Coloring & Creating with Sarah Renae Clark Printables – 2017 Holiday Gift Guide

sarah renae clarkOne of the things I love the most about Christmas is that it’s the one time of year when we take a break from life and just enjoy time with family, doing things we love. For my family this year the activity is coloring, of course!

A wonderful source for inspiration for me this year has been Sarah Renae Clark and her Christmas printables.

Sarah Renae Clark kindly gave me some printables to try. I was not financially compensated in any way. The opinions expressed are my own and are based on my observations while using the products. This post does contain affiliate links. Read More

Self-care with Therapy Threads & Giveaway – 2017 Holiday Gift Guide

It is not just the holiday season: life in general can be stressful, and it can wreak havoc on our minds as well as our everyday responsibilities.

Aromatherapy, which involves the use of essential oils as a complementary health approach, has grown in popularity as a way to de-stress, just like coloring. Some studies have shown that aromatherapy might have health benefits, such as:

  • Improved quality of life, particularly for people with chronic health conditions
  • Improved sleep
  • Improved quality of life for people with dementia

I use an electric aromatherapy oil diffuser (like this one), but how about surrounding yourself everywhere you go with kind thoughts along with the benefits of aromatherapy? Therapy Threads has you covered! Read More
