When we give cheerfully and accept gratefully, everyone is blessed.Maya Angelou
I was sitting in my packing room last night. The packing room is a spare bedroom that has been turned into a workspace, with shelving against every wall, a big table for wrapping, and everything at my fingertips to pack and post our physical offerings.
I had a playlist I love going in the background. A diffuser was wafting delicious essential oils around the room. At my elbow was a pot of my favourite tea. And I was in my happy space as I giftwrapped Planners and Journals and Malas for my members and for my ETSY store.
I don’t do e-commerce the way most people do. I gift-wrap everything. I take time to write a little note or card. I make each parcel as if I was wrapping it for a loved one or dear friend. Sure, it takes longer. But it helps me to express my love for my community. Each product I wrap is an act of love.
If you’ve been wondering what to get for yourself or someone you love this Christmas, perhaps you’d like to visit my ETSY store. I promise that I will look after you, and pour love and well-wishes and positive intention into your gift. It will feel special, because the things I have created ARE special, and the act of you using them is also special – one of self-care and intuition, and of claiming your inner landscape as an important place in your life.
If there’s no-one to spoil you, or to help you feel cherished, or you would like to extend that energy to someone else let me do that for you.
My whole heart is in these offerings, from the creation of the products right down to the way I wrap them.
You can find them all here in my ETSY store.
Love, tissue paper, curling ribbon and the cutest dragon washi tape stickers, Nicole xx
