My Happy Book experience

I got the Happy Book in the mail a week ago today. I pretty much added my contributions that day and the next! I was excited to get my input down into the book! :) (The book is now on the way to CA and the next participant!)

It was super fun to read through and see what the previous people had said and added. There is already some amazing art work, and some inspiring words in this book!

I added my own art work. (The curlicues are my favorite thing to draw. The ATC is from a while back, and I thought adding it to the book was a great idea!)

I also added a page where I pasted in samples of some of my favorite paper. Yes, paper makes me happy! I have scads of pieces of cool paper! When I went through stuff before we moved, I got rid of a lot of things, but my paper... I couldn't part with it! :)

I added a photo of myself on the page for favorite pics of yourself! It's actually my husband and I on our wedding day. We are both laughing and I love it! The picture makes me happy. (No one else has added a photo there yet! I hope more of you will!)

I loved getting to participate in this project, and I can't wait to see posts from others as the book makes its way all over the place!!

The Happy Book Happy Friday!!

The Happy Book arrived on my doorstep in Oregon yesterday!!! I'm the third person to have the Glee circle copy, and I'm SO excited!

I will share next Friday some of the pieces of the books that I have filled in with my own versions of happy. But for today, I have some pictures of the book and of me with the book. I enlisted my husband's help and got a couple pictures at my favorite spot near where we live - Fishing Rock.

I am happy to have the book, and to see what the other ladies shared too. I think we'll all wish we could see the book at the end of its journey and ALL of the contributions! It's really fun!!!

I will send the book on its way later this next week. It will journey to 26 total participants and each of us can add as many or as few entries as we'd like. Jamie is our inspiration and you can read all about the Next Chapter/Happy book over at the blog!

As part of my duties as webmaster for World by the Tail, I manage and write for their blog, Vet Wisdom Café.

The post there today is about Oscar, my grumpy grey kitty. I've written posts that will be scheduled in the coming days about Henry and Ben as well.

Here is Oscar's feature:

It's Friday... time for happy!

Simple this week! The Lorax is my very favorite Dr. Seuss book. This van lives around us somewhere. I've seen it a couple times, and this time - I captured a photo!! It totally makes me happy! (If you haven't - take the time to read The Lorax. The other Seuss that is my favorite is The 500 Hats of Bartholomew Cubbins.)
