Details of swap:
Need some time to unwind, de-stress, and pamper yourself?? Then this is the swap for you!!  The idea of this swap is to craft items that your partner would use to pamper or de-stress. I am thinking items such as scrubs, soaps, candles, oils, blankets to cuddle with, or even voodoo dolls (if de-stressing requires sticking a pin in something, why not??). This swap is not limited to any specific type of item as long as it is what you use to de-stress and relax.

This will be a 5 point swap with at least one medium required. Only one or two of your items need to be crafted, store bought items are okay too. For example, a handmade scented pouch for your drawer and a purchased candle. Or homemade body scrub with purchased lotion. Any combination!!

 Large = 3 points
Medium = 2 points
Small = 1 points

By Time
-Large = 3 or more hours
-Medium = 2 or more hours
-Small = 2 or less hours

By Size
-Large = A shawl, a shirt, a skirt, a set of jewelry with four to five items, a purse
-Medium = one single necklace or bracelet, a scarf
-Small = Earrings, stickers, wallets, pouches, bookmarks

By Price
-Large = $30 or more
-Medium = $10-$30 dollars
-Small = $10 or less
