I lived through my twenties not knowing languages of Love even existed.
Then, upon my upcoming divorce, my sister sent me a gift: a book called the 5 languages of Love by Gary Chapman. I read it and even though I didn’t agree with everything that was in there, I did learn a great deal.
I discovered what languages of love were: ways to feel love and ways to demonstrate it. Soft touches and light caresses, acts of service and gift giving are mine.
It should have been obvious when I thought about it retrospectively. I have been handmaking my own gifts for my family since I was a toddler. I was one of those introvert little girl who would give you a painting, a poem, a beaded necklace etc…
Growing up, I would sew something, knit something for my loved one or buy something I put a great deal of thoughts into. Always. It has never been about how much I was spending, I have never been rich enough to spoil anyone. But I always made sure they felt the attention to details and the affection I poured into every gestures ever given.
Gifts have always been a symbol of all the love that resides in my heart.
On the receiving hand, I also feel more appreciated everytime what I’m given has a secret meaning between my gift giver and myself. You know he or she saw something somewhere and bought it just because it reminded him/her of me.
It’s always about the thought, the tenderness, the sweetness of it all.
So I suppose it only makes sense my work makes me so happy.
I personally write the description of every box I design, every concept is close to my heart and meaningful in ways I could never fully explain. It is something I would love to receive or to buy for others or for myself (because yes, I also learned the hard way self love matters and women ALWAYS tend to put others before themselves).
