Last Minute Gift DIYs

The season of gift giving is upon us! If you've left your gift shopping too late or are choosing to go the simple, cost effective and personal handmade gift route, these are for you! What I really love about them is that they can easily be adjusted and customised to be very personal or to suit materials you have on hand. Most of the materials are also easily found at a decent craft store. Have a look!
Happiness is... DIY Gifts - Fabric-covered letters and words
Happiness is... DIY Gifts - Handmade cookies and packaging
Happiness is... DIY Gifts - "Things I like About You" booklet
Happiness is... DIY Gifts - Ribbon Cuffs
Happiness is... DIY Gifts - Mug Planters
Happiness is... DIY Gifts - Hand-painted wooden spoons

Make it your own - paint on your own design or pattern; cover it in pretty paper; stick on paper crafted flowers or other decorations
Handmade cookies and packaging
Make it your own - Find a fun handmade paper packaging idea; place the cookies in a personalised hand-painted mug or other container that can be part of the gift.
"Things I like About You" booklet
Make it your own - Use pretty scrapbooking papers to make a booklet.
Ribbon Cuffs
Make it your own - Add on your own embroidered or beaded design.
Mug Planters
Make it your own - Find pretty teacups or mugs to use, or hand-paint your own; use vintage tins.
Hand-painted Wooden Spoons
Make it your own - Paint on a special quote or pretty pattern so they can also be used decoratively.

Hope you found these useful! Happy gifting  :)

Free Printable Christmas Cupcake Toppers & Gift Tags

Happiness is… free printable Christmas cupcake toppers and gift tags
I don't usually create stuff that's specifically Christmas-themed, but these were made for something and then didn't end up getting used so I thought I'd hate to see it go to waste... why not offer it to you guys... for FREE :)
Although they were made to use as cupcake toppers, they'd work well as gift tags, or even as part of your table decor.
2 x "Merry Christmas"
1 x "Noel"
1 x blank, for you to add your own message
I'd love to see how you use them so if you'd like to share some pics, please do! :) Enjoy!

Happy Monday!
So unfortunately we missed a few Monday Meows recently, but it's back and since we're  talking about Mondays... there's only three more left in 2013! Yikes! Better make'em count :)
Have a wonderful day and week ahead, and watch out for some free festive printables this week, too!

Life Lately

Life's gotten so busy lately and blogging has fallen behind a bit, but I thought I'd pop in quickly to give you a quick look at some of the fun stuff I've been up to recently. When you get busy with work keeping up with drawing and crafting tends to fall by the wayside, but I've been trying to make an effort to make time for it. I also really enjoy spending time outdoors and with animals, so I've been trying to do more of that, too. Here's a little look at some of what's been going on...
Happinessis... black and gold illustration and clay
Happinessis... black and gold handmade clay jewellery
Happinessis... hand drawn hadeda illustration and hand lettering
Happinessis... found flowers made into a floral composition
Happinessis... black swan, monkeys and flowers
