Randomly Happy Fun

First I'll start off by saying the past few days have been absolutely amazing. Things are really looking up over on my end and I have really seen how strong I have become. Little things I normally rely on someone else to do I have been doing and it feels great. I have been having a positive outlook and things couldn't be better (well besides if my hubby was home). I'm sure I will have "down" days, like everyone does, but that's normal...

So randomly here it goes...

I splurged on some amazing felt for some special things I am making :) I love buying online, especially when you can't find these stunning colors in stores!

sooooo pretty!

I got some AMAZING pen pal cards lately. I have been over the moon with happiness with all of the support I have been getting. Thank you friends, I love you!!

The hubby bought a laptop and had internet connected in his room so we have been skyping twice a day. We usually Skype in the morning for about an hour and at night for 2 hours!! This may be a huge contributor to my happiness... It helps tremendously that I get to see him.. Wake up with him and go to bed with him :) He's 15 hours ahead of me so when I wake up in the morning he is going to bed and vice versa.

He went to the mall there the other day and saw a Panda ride.. What does he do?? Uses it as a good photo op of course... Gosh I love him!!! He looks like he is having a little tooooo much fun though :P LOL :) He gave me permission to post it on my blog (because ya know I blog everything) and wanted me to give an excuse for those white legs of his... HAHAHA!

I have been taking part in several projects that have kept my mind busy and heart happy.

** The Tell Your Story class is over so I am excited to take part in Janel's 30 day journal challenge which you can find here. I find that journaling has been very therapeutic for me.

** Me and my mom are also doing our own Mom/Daughter journal which we make up our own prompts for and work on them together via Skype.. It's going to be all about our family and It's going to be amazing!!! I hope to share those pages too, we are starting it tonight!

** I also have a bedtime journal which I write in every night before bed about my day and feelings on certain things that come up. So I will have 3 journals going at once!! wow!!

** I have also been contributing to The Spark blog which has been a lot of fun, you can check it out here.

** I have also been working on something HUGE for the past few months and I'm hoping to launch it soon. More details on that later. Hint: Courtney has been designing everything for it and it is AMAZING!!!!!!!

Hope everyone has a great week!!

    You have a funny husband with some SERIOUSLY white legs ;D
    Lovely projects.
    Love Maria

  19. All. That. Felt. OMG! That's awesome! As you know, I am fairly new to creating felt plushies and have never thought of buying felt online! What a great idea to get SO many colors! Also, I don't know if you have seen the blog How About Orange but she made a post yesterday about how to make felt strawberries!! It's a link to someone elses blog, but they have a tutorial on how to make felt strawberries and felt peas in a pod (partially using needle felting! I want to try that!). Thought you might enjoy that. :)

    It's good to hear that you and your husband can keep in constant touch with skype while he's gone, the internets an amazing thing :) And I though it was SO sweet of him to make sure to get a picture with the panda!! Even with those white legs :)


  20. Oh all those beautiful colors of much crafting you can do!!! Can't wait to see what plushies you make!!!

    Debbie :)
