Someone once said… “Laugh as much as you breathe and love as long as you live.”

Life-scape Architect


Someone once said, “we are all artist- artists in creating our own lives.”

I thought about that statement for a while and realized just how true it was. We create little niches of beauty and splashes of color throughout our lifetimes. This affects everyone we come in contact with. We are gardeners in our own domain even if we never touch a living plant. It’s difficult to control the world around us but it is quite possible to create a little oasis in our own life. A place to come home to. A place that makes us feel happy and somewhat in control of our own destiny. A room that is decorated in our favorite color or a theme that fits our personality to a tee. A beautiful rose bush or cozy garden spot to sit and listen to the birds chatter or simply something lovely to look at will do.

I feel quite certain that we are all artists and gardeners of our own lives and make a difference in the gardens around us. The spaces we create and the circles of friends and contacts we develop is vital to sustaining a meaningful life. We put together a nurturing environment and a place to feel safe. We create in the kitchen, the office, and our own back yard. Our lives weave a story and lay a path for others to follow. Our style is sometimes imitated and our laugh is often contagious. We are the master of our own palate and some of us are responsible for creating life which is pretty amazing.

Think about all that you have created both grand and insignificant throughout your lifetime- isn’t it amazing? I’d like to think of it as life-scaping but actually it is so much more.

You don’t want to miss my next post on Saturday. I have teamed up with some very creative souls and we are having a very mad tea party over at A Fanciful twist. Our hostess is Vanessa- an incredible lady that you just have to meet. Her parties are quite incredible and the guest list for this one looks like it has almost three hundred participants thus far. Wow, I can’t wait. I am bringing some pretty crazy quests to the party- so stop by and check out the fun this weekend!

See you all on Saturday!
