What you've missed if you haven't signed up to the Lucky Packet yet!

So this is a little update on what's been going on with the Lucky Packet newsletter, if you haven't subscribed yet. The fifth newsletter is about to go out soon, and I'm so stoked with the subscriber growth and responses so far! (Read some of them here!)

In case you haven't heard about it before, The Lucky Packet is an exclusive emailer I send out once a month that gives you the next month's free printable calendar before it's available on the blog, some useful tips, advice or links from me, a brief update about the blog and what's been going on in the Happiness is... studio, and of course, the exclusive extra freebie! This is a free printable that isn't made available anywhere else for free. 

If you haven't signed up yet, here are the freebies you've missed so far:


• a printable version of one of my hand painted ice creams
• a mini envelope and notecard
• an inspirational poster
• "hello" digital illustration greeting cards

Each of these things are created specifically for the newsletter, by moi.
Sign up now to make sure you don't miss the August freebie!
Subscribe to the Happiness is... Monthly Lucky Packet!
**Please note, if you're using Gmail you might find the newsletter automatically gets sent to your "Promotions" tab. Be sure to drag it into your main mail tab and when you see the yellow box asking if you'd like to do this for future messages from this email address, select "yes". Also check your Spam folder if you can't find it in your Inbox.**

Instagram x 2

Happiness is... on Instagram: @happinessis_blog and @fathimadraws

Guys, full disclosure: I'm really not doing well with time management as far as non-work things go lately. I'm trying to get better though! Self improvement FTW. So basically I'm scrambling to get the August free printable calendar done and the content and exclusive freebie for the Lucky Packet newsletter, and I haven't been blogging much this week. 

But I have squeezed in some Instagrammin', and I've started a new account to separate my interests that I'd like to share with you. Here are some recent pics from my normal account, @happinessis_blog, where you'll find doodles, illustration, things that I'm working on, and stuff related to that...

And on my new account, @fathimadraws, you'll find things that I've seen that I find aesthetically pleasing, inspiring and photo-worthy. So kind of... the things in my life that aren't illustration or work related, but that inspire me or make me happy. Like this...

No filter on that flower, by the way. Isn't it just exquisite?

Felt Illustrations by Jacopo Rosati

Felt Illustrations by Jacopo Rosati
I came across these awesome felt illustrations yesterday and they made me so happy I just had to share them with you all! These are created by Jacopo Rosati, an Italian illustrator who started off with digital illustration and then turned to felt for something more tactile and interesting. He's done so many of these collages, and they're mostly used as editorial illustrations. Have a look at the making-of video below, it's so awesome! I just love that people can get paid and make a living doing something so very fun and cool! :)

Logo Design for Chocco&Becca

Chocco&Becca Logo Design and Branding by Happiness is...
One of the things I love about my work is that it's not location specific - I get to work with people all over the world. Today I'm sharing a logo project I worked on recently with a lovely lady all the way from Spain! Rebeca of Chocco&Becca creates beautiful custom cakes and takes a lot of pride in giving her cake designs her own creative spin. She wanted a logo that she felt represented her and stood out from other companies in her industry in her area. I worked with her to come up with this cute bunny character that she was really happy with.

33 Habits of Highly Creative People


I love this infographic that I saved a while back from the Brika site. Aren't these such great, practically useful tips? They're all things that I try to keep in mind at all times, so it's great to have this to look at to remind me. Get their free handbook for all 33 tips. (They're busy updating their site, so this link may not work for a while. I'll update it as soon as I can though!)
