Especially number 5. Well it made me ecstatically happy for about 3 seconds before I had a “why did I not know this sooner!” moment, and then I got happy all over again when I realised easy it was going to make things for me. So – without further ado, five things that made me happy this week….
1. Watching videos for work.
This is what my view looked like again today. I have been watching video after video, explaining to anyone that dares to butt in that it's a necessary part of my day. It's what I do. I create. I create, therefore I procrastinate first. Isn't procrastination an essential ingredient of creativity?
Yes those are my slippers. It’s winter. The fact I get to wear slippers to work also makes me happy.
2. That there are less than 100 sleeps until Prima ArtVenture.
Under 100 sleeps to go - I know this, because Garfield tells me so. Things will start moving really fast as Prima are just about to launch a whole stack of exciting new products, all of which we hope to have at ArtVenture. Already I see sneaks sprinkled across the web. For example here, on the Live with Prima website, scroll right down to the bottom to see some new Prima products. Go on. You’ll love them.
Now that product samples are arriving, things are being finalised and plans are slotting into place FAST.
For those registered already - Jump-up-and-down exciting news for you as we are hoping to open classes for registration within 2 weeks!
For those not registered already – won’t you miss being part of an event with five (did I really say five? hmmm?) fantastic teachers, NINE classes and the latest and greatest of everything? To get the best spots in the classes register soon, or risk missing out. Did you know fear of missing out is a real thing? Noone likes FOMO.
Garfield is cute huh? Ok so I admit adding the bit about ArtVenture but what he was really saying in the cartoon I found on the internet was in German. And although I’m sure it probably did say “98 sleeps til ArtVenture” (right? no?) I thought I better put an English version on there just incase.
3. My Silhouette Machine.
Yes. It makes me happy. It did not make me happy sitting in the box under my desk for the past year, but now I have cleaned my office out and have space, this makes me incredibly happy. Especially when I can make stuff like this.
Cut-outs courtesy of some Studio Calico files from a class I took with them. I’m not sure if the were available to students only.
Edited to add: I purchased my machine from ScrapboxNZ. It is the Silhouette Cameo and yes very easy to use.
4. Using a sketch to create a layout, that layout going on the Prima blog AND then using the same sketch to run a super inspiration challenge on the AE Scrapbooking Retreats facebook page. Now THAT makes me happy.
You don’t have to be coming to one of our retreats to join our facebook page. We have about 280 members, we have a great little scrapbooking community, come join us if you like!

5. That you can use the volume button on the iPhone to take the photos when your camera is open.
Am I the ONLY one in the whole world that did not know this?
Were you all laughing at me trying to take selfie pics with my iPhone3 (that doesn’t have the reverse camera) by tapping randomly all over the screen whilst it is facing away from me, with my out-reached hand in the hopes that I might tap the camera icon and take a pic?
Did you KNOW you just use the volume button?
Seriously. The volume button. I have had my phone for 3 years. How did I not know that?
It’s the little things, huh?
