With life being so stressful and busy, sometimes we all need a little reminder of what truly makes us happy. After reading this article in Real Simple Magazine , I was inspired to think about the things that make me happy. I decided to make myself a DIY Happiness Board.
I bought some corkboard and cute fabric at Hobby Lobby. The corkboard was pretty cheap, I got it unframed. The fabric I chose is pink because it is my favorite color and makes me happy! I used my hot glue gun to stick the fabric onto my board. Once I had my board covered with my fun pink fabric, I needed some cute pins to hold on my happy things. I bought some plain thumb tacks and had to make them cute. I made some little felt flowers to glue on the tacks. I also found some really fun little glittery balls to put on them, and they were already sticky! Yippy!
Once I got my fabulous pins made, I started to add some of the things that bring me happiness. Some of the things I added, were photos of my family, my Sweet Lu & Durban, and some things that represent the activities in my life that I enjoy. I also added a few of my favorite happiness quotes. I put on a photo of me and my sister & best friend Jamie and our sweet Possum dog, who has passed on. I had so much fun making this!!! I realized how many wonderful things in my life make me truly happy! What brings you happiness? Happy Crafting Everyone!!!
