Winter 2022 Theme: Cozy & Creative
HELLO, SISTER-FRIEND! We hope the items we’ve selected for your winter Luxe & Luminous box will lead you to moments of serenity, self-discovery and sensory delight.
This season’s theme, brought to you by Sisters From AARP, is Cozy & Creative. With temperatures plunging and days shortening, we naturally gravitate toward indoor pastimes, such as crafts, baking, reading and artwork.
When we discover and embrace what we’re drawn to creatively, this play activity stimulates authenticity and generates a beautiful, purposeful and joyful life.
Have you ever been consumed by a work, money, health or family problem, only to have an answer about the next right step emerge effortlessly while your hands are busy cooking, arranging pillows or painting the den?
Perhaps you’ve noticed how conversations with friends or family members seem richer, more intimate and more meaningful when they happen while you’re engaged in a shared activity.
Whether you’re with company or solo, what you’re doing doesn’t matter as long as you do it wholeheartedly. Is rearranging a closet a dreaded chore or a lovely discovery of not only style possibilities but also items you can bless others with? That’s entirely up to you.
Try this: Select an item from the box. Hold it in your hands. Close your eyes and ask, What do I want? Let the object provide a clue to that vision. For instance, does the candlestick inspire images of an epic birthday bash, a sexy rendezvous, a Christmas-caroling get-
together, a redecorated living room or a meditative moment in your new yoga alcove?
