Some Things To Make You Smile!

Well, they all made me smile, anyway, so I thought I would use this fine Friday to share them all with YOU so you can smile, too.

'Cause smiling is good.

It makes you happy.


Does smiling make you happy or does happy make you smile? Hmm.....seems we may have a chicken and egg situation on our hands here....hmmmmm.....indeed.

Ribbon Flower Hair Clip

So, this SUPER FUN and SUPER CUTE and SUPER COLORFUL clip is totally in my hair today. I made it. With ribbon. SUPER WIDE grosgrain ribbon. AND a vintage yellow button!!! HEEEE!!!! I {heart} vintage yellow buttons. Just say'n.

Ummm...yeah. So I know other people have probably known about the fabulousness that is Florence and The Machine for a long time, but she is a new discovery to me and I am SO loving this stuff! Love. It. For Reals, folks. For frakkin' reals.

OH! And this conversation....this made me smile. Or laugh out loud for real like really a lot and stuff.

*setting: The Wifee had shown The Hubbums Kanti, her art doll, before naming her. I actually was struggling with the perfect name, as I wanted something that suited her theme, so I was still working on that. Therefore, Hubbums did not yet know her name.*

Wifee: Oh! I finally came up with a name for her!
The Hubbums: For your doll?
Wifee: Yup. It's Kanti. It's Algonquin for 'sings'. I think it's perfect for her!
The Hubbums: If she starts singing I'll shoot her! That's the LAST thing we need! Is for your creepy dolls to start to come to LIFE!

HA!!!!! That's funny stuff. Really, it is.

AND...I got to create some fun stuff this week!!! Like Kanti, and my hair clip, and this fun card! There was a crop over the weekend at Scrap Sisters Studio and I don't usually get to participate much in the monthly crops, but I jumped in at the last minute to participate in a couple of challenges and I'm so happy that I did!
