Hello…we’ve almost successfully made it all the way through January – lots of us don’t particularly enjoy the first month of the year – it means a return to work and reality, it’s cold, and it seems to be very very long!!
Our parcel theme this month was “New Beginning” and with the contents we hoped to make your January a little brighter, by including products all associated with kick-starting your new year with positivity and inspiration!
Llama Water Bottle –
For your first parcel of 2020, we wanted to focus on the theme of new beginnings and add contents associated with inspiration. Lots of us are starting the new year by trying, where we can, to reduce the general waste we create, and particularly, single use plastic, so we thought we’d start by including a reusable water bottle. We loved the cute Llama design, as well as being great for the environment. (We will be doing more ourselves, and making the switch to biodegradable packaging inside all our parcels soon!)
Be A Flamingo… –
We love this quote. It is a great reminder to embrace being you, and standing out from the crowd. Be proud of your differences and flaunt them – there’s only one you! This artwork card has been handmade by Rachel over at “Rae Creates” – you can find her other lovely designs over on her Facebook page.
Lots of people choose to set resolutions for themselves at the start of a new year. For some, this is great and helps them to focus on achieving their goals, but for others, it can mean too much pressure, and have the opposite effect of feeling down or deflated if those goals aren’t reached. But what we do believe, is that everyone should have dreams, whether big ones or small ones – so what could be better than a dreamcatcher, to stop them getting away!
Mindfulness Charm –
As soon as we discovered these beautiful charms, we knew they were a perfect addition for our parcels. They have been created by “Claire Craft at Little Gestures”, who also writes lovely poems to go along with her inspirational products and gifts.
Appreciated, Valued, Loved –
We’ve included another inspirational postcard from “Katie Abey Design” this month. We all go through tough times, and sometimes we all need a little reminder of just how appreciated, valued and loved we are – I hope this card reminds you of this…because it’s true.
Smile Cards –
As always, there should be a couple of these little cards in your parcel, I’ve written one for you, and the blank one, is for you to write a short inspirational or positive message, and give to someone you know, or leave somewhere for a complete stranger to find – but this is of course optional, there’s absolutely no pressure to do this if you don’t want to.
Parcel Assistant –
As always, a pompom Parcel Assistant helped (or hindered!) us with packing your parcel this month, and for January, it was the turn of Victor!
