In addition to Christmas Boxes...

I made this little box for a lovely dark haired baby named Lily.
... and put together these little favor bags for little c's b-day party. Do you see Pancake peeking out of there. c and I collaborated on that one. She didn't realize how difficult it is to get to the final design. I think she had to draw a simple sketch 9-10 times before we got the exact shape we needed. I was proud of her for sticking it out with me. There are a few Pancakes in the shop.. but no blue lilies I'm afraid although there are yellow and pink.

be happy: A little book to help you live a happy life.

I received this little book as a gift recently. I love it. It has some great advice inside that I need to follow.
Here are some examples...
1. Give away what you don't need, to someone who does.
2. Do a one day news fast.
3. Listen to music.
I'm a listen to the news person. You wouldn't believe the difference in your mood if you trade news for music! It's amazing.
I might not go back... OK I watched Frontline last night and that probably counts and it gave me nightmares and made me mad as heck before I went to bed. Hugo Chavez... what a jerk! See I need a change here.
I need to give away some things too. I would love to have one of those homes where all the clothing in the closet fits and is in good repair. Where the drawers have order and make sense. I used to have that when I lived in such a small space in the city. Chaos reigns here in the burbs.. but I'm going to work on this one too.
Find this little book. You'll love it. It will have something that will inspire you!
