52 Weeks of Happy {Week 52}

Today is the very last day of 52 Weeks of Happy, but not the last day to be Happy!


Though 52 weeks is coming to a close, my happiness is not dissipating (my big word of the day) with it, and neither should yours. :)

I know I haven’t been completely faithful with it, there have been a few weeks (well a lot of weeks) where I am just to busy with school to blog at all. This December, however, should pick up, and I have some fun DIY projects for y’all to try out for cute or cool gifts. Christmas on a budget seems to be trending lately. ;)

I do want to add that though I have not blogged all of the 52 weeks of Happy, I haven’t been sad. In fact, the opposite! This 52 week challenge has made me stop and think about what I am thankful for during the week even if I don’t tell y’all about it.

The little things…

Mattress surfing :)

Fall leaves….

A warm fire :)

Little things in life that make life enjoyable. Things you don’t realize make you smile.

It has been truly fun to do this!


So to conclude, be


Life is such a gift and every small moment should be cherished.

And don’t worry, I’m not leaving :) I’m still here to blog about my crafts, but the 52 Weeks of Happy posts are over for now.

Thanks to everyone who left comments, and don’t hesitate to leave some now! “What are you happy for?” “What makes you smile?”

52 Weeks of Happy {Week 51}


“Baby it’s cold outside!”

I’m writing this upstairs


Well it is warm up here in my big comfy chair. My feet propped up on the cushioned ottoman.

Another reason…it is cold downstairs. Our Heater broke unexpectedly for the downstairs, so it is kinda chilly all the way down there. It is warm up here however, and I am thankful for that!

I just keep looking at the pictures from Florida…Beaches….Heat….Hot….Sun….Happy Sigh…… :)

Next week is the last week of 52 Weeks of Happy. Cannot believe it has already been a year!

Thankful to be alive….aren’t you? Pretty awesome to just take a breath and realize each one is an incredible gift from God.

This is one of the first pictures I posted during week 1. Still fit in the shoes.

Almost Christmas! With thanksgiving day, brings Christmas trees, Christmas parties soon to come, and of course ksbj’s tradion of non stop Christmas music. Yee Haw! Christmas day here I come!!!

And don’t worry, I didn’t forget…Happy Early Thanksgiving! All of this talk of Happiness and Thankfulness makes me think of one of my favorite holidays. Christmas and Thanksgiving are my two FAVORITE holidays. Not only because I have been waiting all year to eat my grandpa’s stuffing, but because I love to be around family, friends, and experience life!

Happy Day Everyone!

You might be wandering why I haven’t written in a while. Well I blame it on Florida, though you can hardly call that blaming. This Fall we had the opportunity to take a family vacation to Florida and its Keys. SO AWESOME!

Had a great time and did and saw lots of things.

So thankful for my mom and dad, who took time off to give us the vacation of a lifetime!!!

52 Weeks of Happy {week 45}

Good Morning Gorgeous!

My week was filled with happiness, how was your week?

I hope yours went splendid too!

My morning started off with a lovely cup of steaming coffee and a History book! Fall is already back, I can’t believe it! It is time for giant fleece pajama pants and cozy sweat shirts! Bundles of blankets and heater switched to ON.

Made some more custom orders this week for a lovely customer! Goofy and Pluto pretend masks. I never would of thought of that! Say “Happy Birthday” to the little guy for me!

Each little package was wrapped up with love, and with the help of OrangeUmbrellaCO‘s stickers! They are A-dorable!

I can’t wait to get started…so exciting!!!



Were you a BOOK-IT kid?

If you were, today they are celebrating 30 years of BOOK-IT…yeah….today!

Anyways, the above picture is my book-it medal from second grade!! Cannot believe I found it! Brings back some memories.

“You can never have to much felt!”  Right?

Went to Hobby Lobby the other day and got the largest stack of felt…like…ever! I am going to use it for more masks and tails for the fair on the 18th.

Tell me: Did you ever buy so much of one thing at a store that you were actually embarrassed?! HaHa! Would love to know. Tell me in the comments section below:





Oh yes! And one more thing…

It is “NATIONAL WORLD SMILE DAY!!!” Happy day to everyone!
