What Is Fluid Art?
Fluid art painting is an abstract form of art that involves pouring and swirling paint to achieve a marbling effect. Many see this type of painting as a form of art therapy as you may find yourself mesmerized by the movement of the paint patterns as you tilt the canvas.
What Is The Connection Card?
The connection card contains questions from a study performed by Dr. Arthur Aron* (and others) called “The Experimental Generation of Interpersonal Closeness” which explored connection and intimacy with strangers by asking gradually personal questions in three sets. This study was later referred to in articles including “The 36 Questions that Lead to Love” by Daniel Jones.

What is Soy Candle Making?
Soy candle making is a great craft to explore - either by yourself or with someone else. We chose this craft for this package because soy candles pair well with reflective activities, helping set the mood for a perfect night at home. They also make amazing gifts. You can select two scents to be included in your package, along with personalized labels to make a meaningful gift! Check out our shop for the newest available scents.
What Is Gratitude Journaling?
In times of darkness, we often lose our perspective of what we can control. Gratitude journaling is a powerful exercise that shifts our headspace from one of scarcity to discovering the true abundance of gifts already in our hands. You become the author of your life by bringing to light how both the peaks and valleys of life are opportunities, bringing you closer to your best, most authentic self.
Whether you are in a period of harvest, or plowing through a challenge, there is a reason to be grateful. So light your freshly-made candle, turn on some reflective tunes, and let’s journal!
