10 things that make me happy

Personalizing my MetroCard,
showing Matty this picture just before he ate out of that bowl,
this band,
chicken tape dispensers,
doodling on empty boxes,
attacking Matty with tea strainers,

going to someone's house and hiding their stuffed animals in silly places,

making new thought bubbles,
turning my door into a muppet,
and my new wireless remote for my camera!
Now I can take pictures and twirl as much as I want until I feel sick.

tape dispensers posing as animals always make me happy!

wallflower said...

You're pretty young at heart. Has anybody ever made fun of you for it? People often bring me down for being such a kid.

Catherine Hansen Peart said...

I want that tape dispenser!! Seriously, you brighten my day so much. Plus you brighten the day of my family and friends because you give me ideas to do things to cheer them up too. I am so doing the stuffed toy thing and I am planning on putting a bunch of paper rain drops and clouds all over my daughter's wall while she is asleep (with an umbrella over her bed of course). So easy to just make someone smile and thank you so much for the prompting to do it.

colormekatie said...

@wallflower- Of course! But I know those people are like that only because they forgot how to have fun and feel bad about it ;)

Don't ever let them bring you down!

Vanessa said...

I bought a remote for my camera & haven't even done much with it lately. I should be ashamed.
You've brightened my day yet again.

Love that you've had to tape the lid of the fish tank down to stop moo getting in!

Hi Katie!(I guess that´s your name) Just wanted to say that I found your blog tonight and it´s the best one I´ve ever seen! Totally my number one favourite! I am so tired of school right now and the only thing that keeps me going is my best friend and the sun. Now, your blog as well! I am SOOO inspired right now, can´t wait to go to the store to buy colorful paper. I sound like a weirdo right now, I might am one too. But thank you any way!
