The Shawl Journaling Page
Journaling is an important part of the 'shawl' making experience.
We encourage you to keep a 'journal' close-by to
jot down your thoughts and inspirations!
We offer quotes to inspire you and invite you to write reflections in your journal.
One of the challenges we face here in the northeast is snow!
For the past month we have been pummeled with snow on a weekly basis.
It seems like all we do is: dig-out and hibernate, only to do it all over again!
Not only can this take a toll on our psyche but, our bodies as well - specifically our hands.
This winter season take a moment to care for your hands. Take time to soak them in a warm hand-bath.
Connect to the earth by adding flower petals or a few *drops of lavender, pine, or your favorite essential oils.
Gently dry your hands - massage them with winter salve such as soy & beeswax or petroleum to seal in the moisture.
As you perform this ritual, take in the beautiful scents - may they connect you to the earth and sooth your longing for springtime.
*These are suggestions, avoid if you have allergies or other medical conditions. Perform this ritual at your own risk.
Take a moment every day to massage some lotion into your hands
and thank them for all they do for you and others!
Thanks for stopping by!
