a doodled bliss list

little-blisses

Well, it seems that i'm living from little bliss list to little bliss list these days! That's probably a good thing, because it keeps me from making little bitch lists instead. There was indeed plenty to celebrate this week, mostly little things, but all points of delight nonetheless. There was ice cream. Time to write. A milestone in my shop. The afternoon I turned on a radio station for some soothing jazz, only to hear it skip around a bunch of different tracks & then an accidental cut to the show host who dropped a foul word trying to get the program back on track. An e-mail from the school saying that my daughter found $20 on the playground last month, turned it in, and since no one had claimed it that it was hers to keep for being honest. Recovery of the lost (and brand new) raincoat. A sticker making frenzy. A kind store manager who gave me a load of metal boxes to house my untidy reams of paper. Etc.

And... I'm almost done with the INSPIRING banner! Just a few more letters to go. Will show it in full next week. Wishing you all a great weekend with maximum blissing and minimum bitching.

I rather love your bliss list! I am rather partial to bitch lists at present also... But your bliss list has inspired me to make my own this week.

I loveeeeee your doodle, Aimee, and I also love the more bliss and less b*tch :) Made me laugh - I almost spit out my coffee :)

And YAY for that honest child - that would be one of my proudest moments as a parent ever!

I love your wonderful attitude. And the lack of the bitch list just made me laugh all the way through your post. Congrats on the HUGE number of sales and on having such a wonderful child(ren)!!! Keep up the bliss lists! I'm looking forward to that banner!

Bella Sinclair said...

Honey, bitch or bliss, I'll take it all. And WOOOHOOO! What an awesome milestone! You are totally amazing! If I had a bliss list, you'd totally go on it.

Andria said...

I'm loving this Bliss List idea that I'm seeing on a few different blogs. It would made a fabulous journal to have a book of doodled Bliss Lists...tho' I think the Bitch Lists could be kind of fun, too! :-)

TinaAnn said...

I love your artsy pictures!

Nan said...

I'm new to your blog. I'm taking Joanne Sharpe's "Letter Love" class and she listed you as one of the lettering gurus! Just wanted to say i love your creative style and it's been so fun to poke around your blog...I'll be a daily reader! Thanks for the inspiration.

Amanda Fall - PersistentGreen said...

deeeelicious . . . and I so want one of those banners. Oh my yes.

Michelle O'Connor said...

I'm inspired by your list of gratitude! I think I've been ruminating (bitching)more than being grateful lately so I think I will take your prompt and make one of my own!

IL'd love to invite you to read my blog, it's new but I hope you find it as inspiring as I find yours!
