Make Me Happy Monday: Junk Mail Stationary

Junk Mail Stationery from Yellow Owl Workshop on Vimeo.

My sister does this all the time, and the things she comes up with are just so cool that I thought I would share a little video that reminded me of her.

Make Me Happy Monday: Bedroom

Wouldn't it be wonderful to have a bedroom that opened up to a wonderful green space like this? Oh man, how dreamy right?

Make Me Happy Monday: Om Nom Nom Nom

A friend of mine showed me this a while ago and I laughed for a good while. It's stuff like this that lightens your day, and makes you remember some people just have way too much time on their hands but in this case the outcome of that is a good thing.

This video just makes me feel very dreamy. It makes me want to go outside and enjoy the sun and fun a beach or meadow (not the easiest around here).

Make Me Happy Monday: Forest Sound Track

Isn't this great? And then you find out it's an ad for a phone. That took a little bit away from it for me, but I still really loved this.

Happy Monday lovelies!

Make Me Happy Mondays: Karen Kurycki

Aren't these great! I like the play on words and the different take on things. And I've always had a thing for water colors. For some reason it makes me want to go outside and sit in the grass!

Make Me Happy Monday: Cornstarch Quicksand Goo

Do you remember this stuff from when you were little? I was doing some research and came across this and I got so excited! It made me really happy remember all the fun times I had out in the sun with this stuff (I think because my day camp leaders didn't want us kids inside with it. Imagine the clean up with 15 kids!)

Happy Monday everyone!


  • One box of cornstarch (16 oz)
  • Large mixing bowl
  • Cookie sheet, square cake pan, or something similar
  • Pitcher of water
  • Spoon
  • Gallon size zipper-lock bag
  • Newspaper or a plastic drip cloth to cover the floor
  • Water
  • Food coloring
  1. Pour approximately 1/4 of the box (about 4 oz) of cornstarch into the mixing bowl and slowly add about 1/2 cup of water. Stir. Sometimes it is easier (and more fun!) to mix the cornstarch and water with your bare hands.
  2. Continue adding cornstarch and water in small amounts until you get a mixture that has the consistency of honey. It may take a little work to get the consistency just right, but you will eventually end up mixing one box of cornstarch with roughly 1 to 2 cups of water. As a general rule of thumb, you're looking for a mixture of roughly 10 parts cornstarch to 1 part water. Notice that the mixture gets thicker or more viscous as you add more cornstarch.
  3. Sink your hand into the bowl of “quicksand” and notice its unusual consistency. Compare what it feels like to move your hand around slowly and then very quickly. You can’t move your hand around very fast! In fact, the faster you thrash around, the more like a solid the gooey stuff becomes. Sink your entire hand into the goo and try to grab the fluid and pull it up. That’s the sensation of sinking in quicksand!
  4. Drop a plastic toy animal into the cornstarch mixture and then try to get it out. It’s pretty tough even for an experienced quicksand mixologist.

Make Me Happy Monday: House in the woods

Isn't this beautiful? After my time in the redwood forest and all along the Oregon and Washington coast I'm even more in love with the forest and expectantly houses right in the midst of the beautiful trees! Pictures like this truly make me happy and make me dream!

Happy Monday lovelies!
