It’s the little things

January 26th, 2010

Some of my current happy-makers…

I recently found a hilarious, adorable blog, called My Milk Toof; it’s about the adventures of ickle and Lardee, two baby teeth, and it’s created by Inhae Renee Lee. A guaranteed pick-me-up!

One of my projects in progress is a set of t-shirts for Ontario Parks. Nothing’s been finalized, but I’m so dang excited about it, here are a couple of the rough sketches:

You know when you get a gift for someone and you know they really adore it? Well, I got a Powerball (a gyroscopic ball that works out your wrists & arms) for John for Christmas. He’d had something similar as a kid and I knew he used to love it, AND this one also has a read-out that tells him how many RPMs he’s gotten. In a nutshell: he’s addicted. His record so far:

I have an addiction too: to knitting (starting with that scarf for a friend, then toques for the family). I’ve learned about yarn overs and slip-slip-knit stitches on youtube. During the workday, I swear I can hear the needles calling my name. I’m even doing cables now:

And maybe the thing that’s making me happiest of all at this very moment is that I am on my honeymoon. Sneaky sneaky, I wrote this before leaving and got it to post while we’re away — yay, technology! And yay, Mexico!

What’s making you happy these days?

    Happy-makers what a great topic for a post;)
    When I’m not at work, a trip to the dog park with the pooch is always a guarenteed smile!
    Endorphins from some speedy turns on the ski hill are definitely a happy-maker!
    When I’m on the computer, http://www.homestarrunner.com/sbemail has always made me laugh.
