Weekly Happiness

Happy Kick Butts Day! Today is a good day to go out there and not take no for an answer! Go after your dreams like a warrior princess! Kick butt, take names, and wear a tutu while you do it!

Anyway, I hope you had a good St. Patrick’s Day! We only have a little over a week left in March, and I hope you feel great about your goals and accomplishments so far this year. If not, get it going! Today is the last day of winter in this part of the world, and tomorrow we will shed our tough, cold skin for some floral prints. If you’re in need of a daily boost while the weather catches up to our moods, consider signing up for 30 days of inspirational e-mails.

And yes, it’s Wednesday! That means that it’s time for the weekly photo contest. Today, I’m asking you to take a picture of something round. Sometime today, take a picture and upload it to social media (FacebookTwitter, and Instagram are all fine). Be sure to tag me in it, so I definitely see it, and #uncustomaryart. At the end of the day, I will pick my favorite, e-mail you for your snail mail address, and you’ll get a little envelope in the mail from me! It’s pretty simple. (And yes, it’s open to non-US people.) Last week’s winner was Jen!
