happiness happens month

i couldn’t help but share this with you- not only is today happiness happens day, but the entire month of august is happiness happens month!

what is happiness happens month you say? well, it’s all about declaring your happiness and what it is that makes you happy. awesome, right?!

in celebration, i would like each of us to declare one thing that makes us happy. i’ll go first:

i am a happy person and one thing that makes me happy is snuggling with my sweet puppy, toaster.

so, my dear friends, what makes you happy? i’ll meet you in the comments section!

diy bunting (2)

i’ve been wanting to make my own bunting banner ever since they became popular (so what is that.. like 2 years?), and this weekend i finally made it happen! it only took a couple of hours, and now i have several yards of bunting to pull out for birthdays, craft shows and special occasions. i’m sure there are tutorials all over the web, but this is just how i went about it. i also left the edges unfinished intentionally, so that as they fray the banner will get a vintage, shabby chic look. (you could also finish the flags and turn them before you insert them into your binding, using this same technique, if you prefer.)

i think with the addition of a few clear globe lights ($12.99 from target), the space really feels cozy and romantic. hooray!
