Why Karma Kreatives
Karma Kreatives – What does that mean to you? What does it mean to me?
I must confess that when I chose the name Karma Kreatives for my website, I did it on a whim rather than research. I wanted the name to describe my life – full of things and events that made me happy.
I had always used the term “karma” to describe the good things in my life – some that seemed to just come to me, and many that I made happen, somehow! Whenever I was down, I would seek out some “good karma”. Sometimes I thought that just meant enjoying a cup of one of my favorite teas.
The “kreatives” part of the name comes from the fact that after more than seventy years of existence I am still passionate about anything – and everything – creative. I revel in seeing artwork and products that others have produced. I celebrate the diversity of perspectives that can:
- create everything from cubism to impressionism;
- write fiction and non-fiction; or
- capture the world in photographs.
I am like a sponge trying to absorb all the little details in interior decorating, fashion and nature magazines. I rejoice when I get a chance to tour a botanic garden and observe nature’s abundance of beauty, from the tiniest pistils and stamens that attract bees and hummingbirds, to the largest of gum trees.
I guess you could call me a “creative junkie”.
While this has always been my life until today, I am seeking a way to express my own inner creativity in a positive way. I write, I draw, I read, and I love making the world around me better – in every way that I can – whether through improving appearances, or recycling and reducing what we exploit from our world.
So I decided that I would make a place where I can share what I “love” with the rest of the world. The purpose of this site is to seek out and offer you things – and activities – GIFTS, that could make your life “happy” too…
Karma Kreatives Products & Services
Perhaps you will join me in a cup of tea while exploring a variety of products and services on the site that can be gifts to others or yourself:
- Some of the items might be personal treasures that are being reluctantly parted with after many years of good use – things seeking a second home – like a puppy in a shelter. (By all means, if you need a pet, I highly recommend that as the way to go. My last pet was a found dog that brought me much joy.)
- Products offered on the site will be mainly the same or similar to items that I have also used in my lifetime. Some will be here because I think they have commendable features or benefits, even if I haven’t had personal experience with them. I am always happy to answer questions on “why” I recommend them.
- Art and books will be primarily here because I admire them. I may never have personally possessed them but found them attractive and I wanted you to be aware of their existence.
- Eventually, I hope to share some of my own “creatives” with you, as I continue to explore what lies in my soul and my mind. If you follow this blog, you will be the first to know what bubbles to the surface.
The Karma Kreatives Blog
The intention is to write regularly on the Karma Kreatives blog about the products and services as they are introduced to the site. This will give you some insights about why they were chosen.
The rest of the blog entries will be my meanderings on creativity and life, some researched and some just plain opinion. It will include tips, hints and stories about how to make the best life that you can – or in other words “how to create good karma”!
And there will be more to come in future blogs on Karma, Zen and happy living…
Share with us what brings you good Karma.
