The Happiness Project

Amazon.com describes Gretchen Rubin's The Happiness Project more succinctly than I ever could.  "In this lively and compelling account, Rubin chronicles her adventures during the twelve months she spent test-driving the wisdom of the ages, current scientific research, and lessons from popular culture about how to be happier. Among other things, she found that novelty and challenge are powerful sources of happiness; that money can help buy happiness, when spent wisely; that outer order contributes to inner calm; and that the very smallest of changes can make the biggest difference."  You can read more about it here.

In January, I found a local group on Meetup.com whose purpose is to help members create their own happiness project.  We meet once a month to discuss our ideas, progress and one chapter of the book.  If this sounds appealing to you, please visit the group Meetup page.

Happiness has become a hot topic these days.  The New York Times recently featured this article regarding a United Nations resolution on the pursuit of happiness.  Heck, the book even made it on Jeopardy:


It will not surprise my readers to hear that stamps, photos and scrapbooks make me happy!  Getting snail mail also makes me happy so I tend to believe it's a treat for others too.  What makes you happy?

It's Here!

I feel like a kid in a candy shop!  My latest Close To My Heart order has arrived and I've got a big box of stamps and scrappy goodies to play with including the Stella Workshop To Go kit and the Sweet Surprises card kit.  I can't tell you how happy I am about this terrific new card kit.  Everything is pre-cut so you can create an awesome designer look with ease.  Just add candies and you have everything you need to create ten cards for under $20.  You can't beat that price!  This is truly a great deal; the kit comes complete with die cut cards, box envelopes, treat cups, stickers, ribbon and more.
