Swapbot: Hosting My First Swap: A Little Letter Of Calm

Now that i have five 5* ratings on Swapbot i can host my very own swap and i decided to host 'A Little Letter Of Calm'.
We all have days when life is a bit stressful and we all just need a moment of calm to relax.

So, what are the requirements of this swap?

International Swap. Open to Unrated.
A handmade orientated swap so some art skill is required.
You will fill an A6 envelope with flat paper goods, this keeps cost to a minimum and should only cost the amount of a small letter.

What to put in your envelope:

1. A quote on a plain postcard (A6 Card). (Either print or write your own with beautiful Typography)
2. A Poem or Short Story with a small illustration on a postcard (A6 card) (Can be your own or already written, hand written or printed with a small illustration of your own on the page)
3. 3 Relaxing music recommendations. (Write or print up beautifully on A6 card)
4. A photograph of somewhere calm, maybe somewhere you've been or would like to be.
Preferably printed on  photo paper but optional.
5. Your guide to being calm. (Illustrate ideas on a postcard sized piece of card (A6) your guide to being calm, like instructions. E.g. Light a candle, Drink a hot chocolate, take a bath, etc.) Make it pretty!

Use calm colours like pastels to decorate.
Make it visually calm and pretty to look at.

*Please draw or print on plain white card (220GSM). One white sheet of A4 will allow for all 4 A6 Postcards.
