Daruma: Cute Ghost? Or Creepy Goal Reminder?Melanie Blodgett
Have you heard of a daruma? At first I saw it and thought it looked like a cool modern ghost decoration. But a daruma is a talisman one receives and then makes a goal or a wish and color in one of the eyes with a marker. You leave the other eye untouched so it can watch over you and make sure you complete your goal. It’s not a ghost, but it’s still a little creepy! A goal oriented creepy gift. I love it! It has a great loop on the top so you can hang it anywhere you might need it; the fridge as a reminder to lay off the chocolate cake, or above your home office desk to remind you to get a move on your work goals. Pretty great, right? You can get it here for $8 from Areaware.
