Self Care Sunday - Winson Newman Cotman Watercolour Set

Self Care Sunday is about taking care of yourself and being able to allow yourself to do activities that you enjoy, to relax and to build resilience.  

This week for Self Care Sunday, I went to Michaels Craft Store and bought myself the Winson Newman Cotman Watercolour Set.  Keep in mind that Michaels will often have 50% off coupons so check that out before you buy, or you can also pick it up on Amazon.  It's a small watercolour pocket set that is easy to bring with you.  I'm a minimalist so a compact set was perfect for my needs.  




The Postman's Knock had a Retro Floral Thank You Card that I wanted to do and many of the tutorials on the Postman's Knock blog asks for watercolours.  I have to admit that the Winson Newman Cotman set is soo much better than my dollar store set of watercolours.  With these watercolours a little goes a long way.  I'm impressed and I can't wait to start creating and painting and doing more tutorials from The Postman's Knock.  


I find that art is very freeing and soothing for me so that is why it is a part of my own self care and Self Care Sunday.  What do you do for self care?

    1. Agreed! Not sure why it took me so long to discover what joys art can bring!

  2. Someday I will have time for art again! Occasionally I make soap, but mainly I feel like I'm taking care of myself when I make it to the gym. That's about it right now.

    1. Soap making is something fun and practical! Good for you for getting to the gym. One day this year I'll get there.

  3. For self care, I find a perfect spot on my bed, cover myself up with a blanket and read. Read until I sleep. That's my thing :)
    Loved your art work. It's beautiful.
