I LOVE ARTING!

So I spent a few hours in my shop today and made a ton of fun stuff.

I painted, drew, mod podged, hot-glued and duct taped.

I love creating things.

I’m going to add some photos of today’s products of ARTING…

These are DUCT TAPE creations.  Keychains, tin cans I covered and embellished, a magnetic photo frame I made out of the side of a cereal box, then some other frames I created from recycled stuff–cd case and a little plastic box that paper clips came in.

This is probably my favorite art to do…PAINTING on wood or whatever I can find.  I love to illustrate quotes and sayings to be hung.

This is a little new idea I did. I found something like it on Pinterest.  I actually just started putting things together.  It actually looks better in person than it does in this pic.  A cute way to keep an kind of small office supply.

This bag, I believe, is the CUTEST thing I made today.  I created it using a canvas block to add to the front (attaching it with fabric glue) and then adding felt and buttons with very high temp hot glue (didn’t burn myself this time!) and then the owl is done with acrylic paint with HUGE bling eyes to go along with the Socrates quote: WISDOM BEGINS IN WONDER.

My whole theme today was quite eclectic; therefore, not really having a theme at all.  I just gathered the stuff I had and started putting it together.  What a FUN DAY!!!

I LOVE ARTING!

How to be a HAPPY CAMPER!

(Infomercial voice used here) Hello friend!  Do you want to be a happy camper?  Are you tired of frowning?  Life got ya down today?  Well, let’s go over ways to become a HAPPY CAMPER!  

BECAUSE YOU TOO CAN BE A HAPPY CAMPER!

You really don’t have to go camping to be a happy camper, but you may have to pack a bag.  Your bag should be filled with things that aid in your happiness.  You should always be prepared!  Being prepared to be HAPPY is most important.   Admit it, when you are prepared in any situation, it just makes life BETTER!  So…

Let’s pack our bags full of:

POSITIVE THOUGHTS!

Articles that warm our hearts.

Videos that make us smile even when we don’t even realize it.

Pay it Forward Activities.

SMILES! (essential!)

Notes, quotes and other tidbits that remind us that life is good!

HUGS!

Confetti! (I prefer it over glitter.)

CUPCAKES!

Ok, cupcakes might not be your thing, but I think you get the picture.  Whatever is in your bag, it should be something that will help you and remind you and encourage you.  Never pack your bag full of regret and deceit.  Don’t stash some worry in there.  Don’t wrap up and hide your concerns and woes.  Throw anger and ill-feelings in the trash or better yet,

FLUSH THEM DOWN THE TOILET!  Get rid of all that.

Your road to HAPPY CAMPER-NESS should be easy if you only look to the things that make you HAPPY.

YOUR bag needs to be full of things that put a smile on your face and a skip in your step!

I promise you, when you can BE PREPARED to be happy…it’s so much easier.

AND YOU TOO CAN BE A HAPPY CAMPER!

An idea: I keep a HAPPY FILE in my desk at work.  This file is filled with award certificates, small drawings and notes, cards and even emails I’ve printed out.  They are reminders that I am doing a good job and that I AM LOVED.  If I ever get to the point where I feel as if I am not being appreciated or just exhausted over life in general, I whip out this file.  Most of the times it makes me cry, but it breaks down the funkiness I have somehow built and paves the road to sunshine again!  I love my HAPPY FILE—it keeps me prepared and always ready to be a HAPPY CAMPER!
