At the end of a week that has been, as my eleven-year-old niece would put it, quite suckish, I wanted to focus on ten things that are making me incredibly happy these days. Check it:
This delightful card from Cristina Kowalczyk:
My new granddog, Maia:
My daughter, Nicole, just got her from a rescue shelter and I can't wait to meet her. By the way, did you know that Nicole writes for Paper Crafts magazine? Yeppers. Nicole Thomas, that's magirl!
Speaking of granddogs, I'd better post a picture of my first little prince, Pepino, who is my daughter Beccah's little guy, lest he get jealous of new-comer Maia--'cause he makes me really happy, too!
This papercutting art of Jennifer Judd-McGee:
My dear and oh-so-moxie fab friend, Susan R. Opel, who took Flat Cath with her everywhere she went at CHA and posted on the Moxie Fab World Facebook Fan Page in my absence:
The Superbowl which is on Sunday:
It's not every year that your local team earns the honor of playing in this historic game, and since I've never had a local NFL team before I moved to New England, it feels extra special this year. Go Pats!
This "sweet" card by Lea Lawson:
The wonder and joy in this photo, a snowflake captured with a macro lens:
...and last but not least, these four talented ladies:
...who will be showcasing their "squeals" from CHA for CHA Week here in the Moxie Fab World, which begins on Monday! Thanks Julie, Teri, Kim, and Windy! I can't WAIT to see YOUR moxie fabs!
And I've got to tell you, another thing that's making me very happy this week is YOU, my friends. I can't thank you enough for all the well-wishes you've posted in the comments here in the Moxie Fab World, on my personal Facebook page (let's be friends!), on the Moxie Fab World Facebook Fan Page (are you a fan?), and in the cards you made in this thoughtful blog hop (I'm still working through the entries and promise to drop by soon if I haven't already.) I am so touched by your kindness, and it really has helped to brighten my outlook.
How has your week been? What is making you happy these days? Feel free to share in the comments!
Have a moxie fab weekend, my friends, and remember, always look on the bright side of life! (Cue the whistling!)
PS Don't forget! We've got 5 challenges going on in celebration of Cool Tools Week. Who knows? Maybe one, two, three, or all five of them could make YOU happy these days!
PPS Oh! And one more--Downton Abbey. I just can't get enough! Are you watching, too?
