Showing Some Love

I'm in another one of those moods today and I've decided to post another list of things that make me happy. You might see some overlap with the last list but only because some things just really make me incredibly happy. =) So here goes!

Pretty envelopes!
Pretty envelopes make me happy because they're fun and a blast to make. In my last list post I mentioned a ton of things I'd wanted to post tutorials for, so this summer I'll probably get to working on those and a few more in this list. Envelopes, especially the pochette or petal envelopes are really fun, if not a little difficult to design from scratch.

Fun letters from pen pals! These make me happy because I love hearing from my pen-friends. I collect all the letters I receive from my long-distance friends and I cherish each one. I especially am a fan of the artsy envelopes and letters sent to me. Handmade is so much fun!

Kawaii stationery! I tried to find a better picture that showed the papers that are kawaii, but the ones I liked weren't accessible. Anyway, give me stickers, papers, envelopes, pencils, pens, and stamps that are kawaii and I will be one happy camper.

Sushi! I especially love eel sushi with a spicy mayo sauce. The local grocery store has fantastic sushi for cheap, and there are two restaurants I frequent that have phenomenal sushi. There's nothing better than some filling sushi with a side of steamed dumplings to make my day better.

Junque journals! Also known as creative journals, art journals, junk journals, or altered journals. These are a blast to make and they allow people to be so creative and expressive. I don't have nearly enough money to buy all the inks and paints and embellishments to make these as good as some people can, but it doesn't mean I like them any less. They're so beautiful!

Hipster fashion! Because there's nothing cooler than hipster fashion. Except indie fashion.

Urban Outfitters! This is one of my favorite stores. Even though I can't fit into probably three quarters of the clothes they have, their home decor section is freakin' incredible! I can't wait to own my own home so I can decorate it with cute owl mugs and branch shelves. 

Hello Kitty! Anything HK is smile-inducing, but this one takes the cake. (Pun fully intended). I love when people take HK and make her into crafty things, such as cakes and jewelry and clothes. 

Van Helsing's Dracula! I know this movie flopped hardcore, but I'm allowed to go fangirl over Richard Roxburgh's portrayal of Dracula. I mean, really, his character just wanted to have some kids. Was that too much to ask? Well, I suppose yes, 'cause I sure as hell wouldn't wanna be vampire food...

Kittens! Specifically Persians, because they are SO DARN CUTE.

And that is all for now. What are some things that make you guys happy?

  1. Totally agree on indie fashion! ;) That's one of the things I miss the most about Argentina, my home country. I used to only buy from indie designers. Here, it's all about chains :(. I wish I lived in a place where there were more indie stores.

    And those envelopes and journals look just amazing!
