Hello lovelies! I hope you’re having a fun week. Did you take a minute to thank your postman yesterday? It’s not too late! Belated cheer is always welcome, I promise you. If you’re not into celebrating after the fact, you could celebrate Nutella Day. That stuff is delicious.

Today I’m going to prepare workshop materials for this weekend. Speaking of which, have you started on your cards for Valentine’s Day yet? Less than ten days till the 14th, and don’t forget to calculate shipping time! Spread the love.

Below you will find an incomplete list of things that made me happy this past week, including lots of links for fun and entertaining things. Do you keep a gratitude/happy journal? Link me over to your lists!
