If you're a fanatical Facebook fan like I am, you may have seen the new concept being shared around called "100 days of happy". Basically - you sign on through a website that monitors your progress - and then commit to posting a photo - either on FB, Twitter, or other social media site - for ONE HUNDRED days in a row. I signed on on Wednesday. So that will take me to JULY 2! I have calendar pages printed out and sitting next to my laptop - and so far, so good. I'm not sure why I committed to something so lengthy - I admit sometimes I'm not so good with follow through, but this just seemed FUN to me. And since a post a photo of some type ALMOST everyday anyway - it seemed like an easy goal to achieve! Combined with the abundance and prosperity and general good feeling teachings I'm studying right now (anybody familiar with Abraham?) it just seemed like a good fit. I have even gotten several of my friends to join in - informally, and on their own, without the commitment to the website (if you achieve the goal, there is a congratulatory memo book at the end). Either way - I am just glad others are joining in! I have promised not to post DOG photos everyday - but with a face like THIS - how will I ever be able to resist?
So if you think you want to join the fun - and commit to being HAPPY with photos everyday until JULY - (and I bet by then you'll be addicted to HAPPY!) here's the official site link: #100HappyDays
Another part of life that makes me happy: my beads, of course. I've been playing with some new things, as well as relying on my true love - bead embroidery. Here is a bit of what's transpired in the last week or so:
These bracelets are a whole new line geared toward the UpMarket recycled art event I'll be participating in later this year. I am definitely not waiting until then to introduce them though - and in fact, have special orders to create TWO similar to the first photo right now! They are called 'Enlightened Denim' - denim made better!. I totally LOVE how they're turning out - but after making three in a row, I couldn't wait to get back to my passion: the embroidery. This piece is still unnamed - usually they've named themselves by now. Hoping it will come as I progress with the strap portion....
Peaceful HAPPY beading,
