Make It Beautiful…

April 10, 2019

“Everything in life is art.  What you do. How you dress, how you love someone and how you talk.  Your smile and your personality.  What you believe in, and all your dreams.  The way you drink your tea.  How you decorate your home.  Or party.  Your grocery list.  The food you make.  How your writing looks.  And the way you feel.  Life is art.”

I wish I wrote that, but it was actually an un-sourced quote on a birthday card from my daughter.  I LOVE though, that she thought it was the perfect card for me because as she wrote inside, “ it reminded me of one of the most important things you have taught me- that life can be beautiful and we have the power to make it so”.   My work is done!  Just kidding.  But really, to know I taught my daughter that she has the power to make her life beautiful makes me beyond happy.

If I could pick one word that captures what motivates me, it would be Beauty.  That’s the capital B kind of Beauty.  It’s more than hair & make up beauty – though that’s important.  But rather, Beauty in the sense of being moved:  to sigh, to marvel, to feel deeply, to restore, to create, to embrace, to feast, to give thanks and praise.  That kind of Beauty.

Welcome to my little monthly blog Make It Beautiful….  a place to share what’s new with Darśana and my work as a designer, as well as a spot to post about the ways I bring beauty into my every day .  I’ll feature some pretty finds along with the makers and purveyors of things that bring a spark of Beauty to our lives.

Life is Art.  Make it Beautiful…
