HAPPY LAST DAY OF 2018! This year was full of big goals and HUGE changes for me!
One of the biggest was to paint my entire place BRIGHT PINK. Living in a pink house has been my plan since I was a kid, but I started planning it properly a couple of years ago. It was A LOT of work and pricey, so I was finally in a place in my life where I could get it done.
I’m really happy with the way my place turned out and I’m so excited to show it off!! My favourite place is the living room. It’s soo bright (it looks like it GLOWS sometimes!), cheery, and just MAGICAL!
As soon as I walk inside and out of the cold (REALLY COLD these days it’s -40 degrees here tonight!), I get a warm cozy feeling!
Say hello to my new unicorn friend who really brings a bit more glittery magic to this space! I have spent the last couple of days making him out of paper mache – which I haven’t done since probably elementary school!
From start to finish, it look me 4 days to finish him because the paper mache and paint had to dry (and I had to remake the horn a few times because Sugar decided it was a fun toy!) But this project was incredibly fun, and fairly easy. I had a spare frame from IKEA, and added a string of fake flowers and voila! You can find the full instructions for making your own unicorn head here on Lil Blue Boo!
I loved paper mache. Definitely a new skill for me, and one I hope to use again soon! Maybe I’ll make him some friends?!?
I hope to show off some of my other favourite spaces in my cute pink house soon! xoxo
I find the time after Christmas to be a bit sad of the energy and bright coziness of the season is gone… so like the HAPPY post on Christmas, this seems like quite an appropriate topic. But I’m trying to stay POSITIVE and make this the best day EVER!!
Before we get to the HAPPY again, a couple of my not favourite things… People hurting other people and animals, when other people are sad, jealousy and comparing myself to others, worrying about what other people think about me, not doing things when my anxiety gets a hold of me, and giving up on my goals.
I’ve been busy crafting to get over some of the blue feelings that are creeping in my brain! I love doing something that lets you COMPLETELY leave the real world behind…
Getting over some of the things that make me sad and anxious is going to be a big part of the next year. So instead I’m going to turn to the happy things in life… and just BE ME!
This seems like a great topic for Christmas!! SOOO many things make be unbelievably happy, I can’t JUST pick one thing! When life gets tough it’s good to remember all these great things.
Pink, rainbows, BRIGHT colours! Baking! Oodles of frosting! Candy and cake and cookies!
My cat! Unicorns! MAGIC!
My happy pink little house! Flowers! Blasting music and dancing around with the curtains open for all to see!
Hello Kitty, collecting plushies, toys, and kawaii things! Video games! Things that remind me of my happy childhood!
Texting silly memes with friends! Looong walks in the forest! Dressing up, especially in BIG POOFY DRESSES! Hot rainy days and splashing barefoot in puddles! Creating cute things for other people! The craft aisle! Taking pictures! Kindness and silliness… really it goes on and on. You may “grow up”, but keep loving what you love to the extreme.
Hope your Christmas is filled with all sorts of things that make YOU happy as can be! 🙂
