A wise woman that I know once told me, "If you don't take care of yourself, you won't be able to take care of anyone else."
SoBev and I want to challenge you to do just that . . . to do just one thing today to take care of yourself. Exercise for 30 minutes, eat a well-balanced meal, read a couple of chapters from a good book, just sit and do nothing for ten minutes, file your nails, take a warm bath . . . whatever helps you feel recharged,renewed and refreshed.
We invite you to write up a post about how you have been inspired to care for yourself this week, and link it up on Saturday with all the other spa tips/tutorials and ideas that will be linked up in our blog hop. After all, Blog Spa isn't so much about pampering ourselves for indulgence . . . it's about taking care of ourselves so that we can be even better moms, wives, employees, grandmas, friends . . . people.
And by now, you know the routine . . . it's time to head on over toBev's place (oh, how I wish I could LITERALLY do that) and check out the next Blog Spa tutorial . . . a little pampering for your feet. BUT before you go . . . take advantage of these extra entries for ALL three of the giveaways that you've seen directly here at twelve crafts. That's right any extra entries left below will automatically be added to all three Blog Spa entries that you've seen here.
~Leave a separate comment below for each giveaway you entered AT FLAMINGO TOES.*
*For example, if you entered only 1 of the giveaways at Flamingo Toes, you will leave one comment below. And the 1 comment you leave below will go into the entry list for all three of the giveaways here at twelve crafts. Technically, if you enter tomorrow morning's giveaway at Flamingo Toes, you could have up to three extra entries for all three of my giveaways. Woohoo!
I try to teach my kids good manners. I'm not sure how successful I've been though. But when I hear them say "please" or "thank you", I know my persistence is paying off. I try to use good manners on my blog too . . . giving credit where credit is due by linking back to projects or ideas from other crafty bloggers. I ask you to do the same. If, in some rare instance, you are inspired enough to blog about something I tried or use an idea you find here, please link back to me (if it's my idea) or the original blogger. Feel free to use my original ideas and tutorials for personal use only (gifts or self) not for profit!
