At home, at Christmas Rose Cottage, I love richly romantic art, empowering for all genders, depicting gentle, natural scenes to encourage self reflection and a very personal relationship with the higher Self, the inner and true self. Be it my own loving artwork or prints of passions from long ago, little higher selves can live around these positive images, choose their own, and always look within for whole health Love to feel their bright light of love shining out into the universe, forever glowing for their true hearts to be in their world with clear senses.
Change your artwork with the season if you like to infuse your days with cozy, natural inspiration. Wander a museum, art gallery, online art history research, or your pencil and paper. What kind of artwork imagery are you drawn to? Where do our connections come from? What, or who, we connect to from forever ago, yes it may be familiar, but we can still choose, now in this moment, is this helpful or harmful? What feelings does an image, or soul, invoke? Familiar doesn’t have to mean positive…or negative…we have a choice. Peace and love this day, holiday, and all days ahead. Design is powerful and so are all of our choices, which imagery is peaceful and calming for you? Surround yourself in what you Love, XOXO ~ Amor Milagre
Q: What are your favorite food combinations for cooking family dinners?
A: I have many, but for Winter, I really love organic ginger root, garlic, and shallots together…in everything! It works gently in sauces, soups, appetizers, on vegetables, in dips, and with fruit to create a softness. The scent fills the house with a warm, cozy cloud of sweet ginger. Our bodies love it because it really helps boost the immune system and keep us healthy with all the germs about in town. I like to sauté these three, minced, in olive oil, salt, and pepper, on low heat. When tender, add in other things or add it on top of others. We’ll be growing these in our new garden, here at Christmas Rose Cottage, this Spring -Summer -Autumn. This healthy superfood grouping is soothing for the senses and for stomachs, little and big. Ginger was very helpful for maternity illness. I find natural foods so beautiful. The garlic’s airy winged shells, the ginger’s aromatic colour, and my tearful shallotful eyes try to admire their lilac and russet hues fading into one another.
I have included this trio in my new Cookbooks, releasing in 2020. A new Film Series that involves some organic vegan recipe ‘How To’s’ is also on the menu. More Q & A’s are coming up! Please message your questions here. Happy Holiday Cooking! XOXO ~Amor Milagre
A Gift for you! Wrapped in respect for Nature, Amor Milagre packages are freshly wrapped this Spring so that you may reuse the boxes within for gifts and storage. This prolongs the life of the box as a box. The boxes can hold your dearest treasures or supplies waiting to become your dearest treasures. Helpful on an office shelf, in a nursery, a bookshelf, or a storage room, these clean recycled brown boxes are a beautiful neutral for your home and office. The packages are wrapped in a reusable, recycled brown kraft paper. The name of the recipient is handwritten on the top of the package for a special personalized feeling upon arrival. All packaging is responsibly sourced, made of recycled material, and FSC Certified. I’ve always been in Love with the realm of trees and Nature. It’s important to source responsible materials. I use minimal packaging, and with this process, the box is able to be reused, Loved, and adored. Use the paper for anything you can, and recycle or compost if too messy from shipping. Use for packing when you move or ship another package. Fold in half and use the clean sides to cover books for school or to soothe your bookshelf. Paint a mural! If clean, use both sides for a large blank canvas to draw on. Kids will love this adventure! Tidying up your home is very rewarding. When all of your things have a special place, you can easily find what you crave, and save your energy for the next passion to enjoy in life. Love to the trees! XOXO ~Amor Milagre
I adore calligraphy and classic bakery style boxes. My packaging doesn’t use string, but I love the feeling of a parcel wrapped in brown paper with your name on it! This is especially exciting when someone else has bought this surprise for you. A little box on your doorstep! What is inside? A gift for me!
Another way to keep your order’s packaging in good shape for reuse is to instruct your mail carrier, (we use USPS for all orders), to deliver your packages to a specific spot. One that is nice, dry, and easy for you to see and bring in. You can also ask to pick up your parcels at the post office so they stay very dry and clean.
It’s a lovely and vital idea for everyone to cut down on using excessive amounts of packaging and packaging that is wasted or only used once. We can grow more Love for the initial materials and energy used to make even one simple box. How many uses can you find for a box? Children love to play with boxes. These boxes make wonderful beds for dolls, puppet stages, houses for tiny mice toys, treasure chests for letters from Dear Ones, and beaches for my upcoming organic cotton toy collection! They are also perfect for storing artwork, holiday cards, and art & craft supplies. The labels help children learn to spell and read. Amor Milagre is an inclusive company. I not only try to include all people when making the product collections, choosing packaging, and mindfully writing new book characters, but how is everything cherished? How can a product live throughout time? How can we share Love and responsibly choose ‘A Gentle Life?’
This way of packing my products also saves you time and space, while being very helpful around the house.
No trip to the recycling center on our account. Less energy to recycle materials.
A new, fun tool for you to keep your belongings happy and in good condition!
As an artist and designer, it really helps to organize my belongings into labeled boxes.
Everything is there at your fingertips! All of the boxes live on a storage shelf, easy to find.
