Seeds of Happiness


Mark Borella is a happy guy.
And he spreads his seeds of happiness everywhere he goes... literally.

I met Mark Borella at the International Gift Show in Atlanta Georiga. Not only did Mark and I "click" immediately, no doubt due to the fact that we are both a tad wacky and just shy of crazy, but I fell head over heels in love with the product he created through his artistic gift.

As Mark says " These Little Seeds of happiness started out as leftover lumps of clay I made into little smiles to give out to friends who were going through hard times and need a little smile. That was in 2006. Since then I've given out thousands of smiles to folks, a handful at a time. In turn, they share them and the story with their friends in need of a smile. Those people then share with more friends and keep the story going."

Well these little smiles are all over the planet by now. I always carry a handful in my pocket and share them whenever and wherever I can. I take photos of them too. They love to have their pics taken and posted on facebooks and I've given each one of mine a name... so they become a little friend I share with someone who needs one.

If by chance you happen to run into me at an airport, art show or grocery store, and could use a little smile... just ask... and I'll pass one along. If you too would like to have a stash of your very own seeds of happiness to share or any of the other fun items Mark has, check out his website at seedsofhappiness.com

You can also "friend" him at Seeds of Happiness

Help him share the love!
