Find your "happy"

Life's short... buy the shoes


I love this image I recently saw on Facebook. You can switch it to any item of desire you want - for example, “Life’s short… buy the paper packet”. Of course, I’m fortunate that my hobby is paid for by my consulting (this is by design and not simply “luck” - you could do it too). But in actual fact, life is a constant push and pull of needs, wants and compromises. I think that the key is to find something that both makes you happy and works within your life right now.
Crafting simply makes me happy. I love creating pages for and of my children, because they bring me so much joy. I love gifting home-made cards, but even if I never gave them away it wouldn’t matter, because the creating of them is my happy.
You might be stressed, overworked and underpaid, feeling a bit lonely, disconnected, out of sorts or out of place. Taking out a few tools and pretty papers works for me. You can do it on your own, with a friend or with a whole craft group. Adding crafty friends is just a bonus!
It doesn’t matter when, where or how you do it… but make sure you put time aside this week to “Find Your Happy”.

Warmest regards,
Jo Armstrong
