Happiness Is...

a kind word and good deeds. Such little things, but big in the effect they have on one's spirit. My sister is the Queen of random acts of kindness. She and a friend of hers lugged my new cabinet from the garage to my studio in the downstairs this past Saturday. It would take me awhile to list all the selfless acts like this she's blessed me with over the years. Seriously, she's a good sis!


Merci becoup, Marisa!



<-----BTW, this was a little thank you I made for my sis inspired by the Bella's new book, Postmark LA. Climbed on to the dollie head bandwagon. Love their sweet expressions and all the wear and tear from being loved.






Not quite ready to show it all, but here is a peek at some of my favorite spots in my studio. It's making me happy to see progress and imagine it finished and actually working in there. You can see the start of my dollie head collection. ;)






Here are some other things that are making me smile this week. Hope you'll share what makes you happy. Leave a comment and play along, won't you?

Happiness is #1 I got my dishwasher fixed today, yeah! Washing dishes was relaxing for about 2 days, But 3 weeks? #2 I found the cutest little journal at Barnes and Noble with graph paper pages!

Happiness is having a big sister! Panera Bread Co for lunch, a fat- free toffee nut latte from starbucks, soft grass between my toes for a walk around the yard, warm sun on your face and a song in your heart, A big lick from my canine kids, and peace in your soul.
I have lots of happy!!!!!
