This week I went to visit Allyson of the Color Queen Salon in Honolulu. I brought her a hand stamped notepad that I stamped with the message "do more of what makes you happy". I chose this stamp for Allyson because she is someone who lives out this message as she daily shares her gifts and talents with all her clients. I have never seen anyone leave her salon that wasn't beaming with happiness over how amazing Allyson made them look and feel!
To create this gift, I used our new Botanical Gardens Designer Series Paper and coordinating Botanical Builder Framelet Dies. I chose the colors for the layered flower by pulling colors that coordinated with the Designer Paper. I love it that Stampin' Up! offers a wide variety of color coordinated products!
Here is Allyson with her note pad gift. I had to smile when I saw how perfectly the colors I choose coordinated with her "hello honey" glasses. Allyson is really wonderful, I just love her to pieces. She is gifted with the ability to really listen to you, offer expert consultation and then produce amazing results. I was a very happy camper when I left her salon. I love the cut, love the color and have received many compliments which made me happy!
So, What Makes You Happy? I hope that no matter how you answer that question you will take time today to invest in doing just that and then help others you encounter to do the same. I think if more people invested time in doing things that made them happy then the world would be a brighter, happier place.
