The Happy Book: February 26

Say hi, Jinx from Jamie Ridler on Vimeo.

Hey, everyone! I'm sharing with you a little bit of happy from my corner of the world today. Meet my cat, Jinx!

Goodies in the Happy Book!

Now, I got a great question last week about The Happy Book. It seems that everyone's adding a whole lot of happy, including all kinds of treats. Yay! What a generous group! And so the question came in: do I get to keep any of these goodies?

Let's do this:
  • If the person before you added edible treats, eat them.
  • If you're sending something you specifically want the next adventurer to have, label it.
  • And if there are extra items like bookmarks or ATCs in the book, you can pick one to keep for yourself in exchange for you adding a little goodie (or two) to the package yourself. That way the beautiful flow keeps going. You get to keep a little treat. And you get to give a little treat.
Sound good?

    • Everyone's welcome to write a post about what made them happy this week and share it in the Mr. Linky below.
    • Come on by our Vimeo group to share a video of what makes you happy! It doesn't have to be perfect or edited or even have sound! Whatever makes you happy is just right. A moment of home video? Perfect. Your cat purring? Purrfect.
    • Or if photography's more your thing, catch a moment of happy and share it at our Flickr group called Share Your Happy. Come see what people are sharing! There's family and inspiration boards and rainbows and stars and pie!
    • And remember, you can absolutely get yourself your own copy to work through while waiting for the mail-around book to arrive!

      I have the book at home... and I am working on it. Anyways, I am having problems with the post and song - these friends of mine - from the post before this one - last weeks. It just keeps playing over and over. Is there anyway I can stop it - so I can watch your cat video? Thanks. Lucy

    5. Jinx is adorable!

      My happy this week = snow (yes,snow!). I love snuggling in my blanket, having today off, drinking my hot chocolate with mini marshmallows, and how pretty it looks outside.
      I also loved having a chance to read what makes everyone else happy and getting just dance for wii (great commercial--just had to get it!).
