52 Weeks of Happy. Week 1 of 52
Things that make me feel happy or make me smile. And why not!
I followed a link on twitter and read a blog post from somebody whose work/blog I really admire – Petals to Picots ( 52 weeks of happy ). I understand that the original idea for this came from Jen Little Bird – such a lovely idea and a lovely, happy blog too.
This made me think about doing something similar, I am not sure whether I can remember to post weekly pictures of what makes me happy or makes me smile – but hey, perhaps the 52 posts don’t need to be consecutive weeks – so that would be the first thing that makes me happy.
- 1) Deciding to create this set of blog posts of things that make me happy and deciding it does not have to be consecutive weeks (as that could become a chore).
- 2) Visiting the Bead and Textile fair at Norwich on Sunday 28th April 2013. I really hope this will be an annual event as I met so many lovely people there. Just look at the beads and buttons I purchased – simply gorgeous!
- 3) Also on Sunday, before visiting the fair, I purchased a new camera as the camera in my phone is rubbish. Of course I had to make a case for it on Monday night, so on Tuesday night I made an improved version of the case. I love both of them. I love the retro fabric used for the outside which is really yummy and the bright orange polka dot lining which just makes me smile.
- 4) Today I purchased a new bag. It only cost £14 at the Gt Yarmouth market. But it was just so lovely, I could not resist it. I went into a fabric shop in Bungay using the bag for the first time and somebody working in the shop commented on how she loved the owls on it.
Being happy is good. Knowing and noticing how often things make me happy, makes me smile.
