It's been such a busy week so far that putting together this post has been a bit difficult. Which I guess is why it's so beneficial - remembering what makes you happy over the week makes you even happier! And I've been struggling a little with the weather despite the fact that it's not even been that cold lately. I guess Summer just seems like it was so long ago that I don't even remember what it feels like to be warm! That is until I came across the photo above of the sunset at Bloemendaal beach in The Netherlands. It was taken on a fantastic day trip when Amsterdam was experiencing a rare heatwave. Then that lovely warm feeling came flooding right back. Here are some other things that's making us happy this week.
1) Sailing down the Amsterdam Canals
Another summer photo that gave me a warm, sunny, tingly feeling. If you've never taken a boat ride down the Amsterdam canals, you must put it on your travel to-do list. On a warm day, with good company and a cold Heineken, it's just the best feeling in the world!
2) Our wax seal
We were gifted some sealing wax in our logo colour this week, and using our rubber stamp we managed to send out some Christmas parcels with an actual wax seal of approval! It took maybe three failed attempts before I went online to watch a tutorial (from a ten-year-old kid, no less!) and then I got into the swing of it. It's such a shame that it takes too long to do this for all our packaged orders, but we'll still hang onto the wax for some extra special or larger orders. it really does transform the wrapping of an order!
3) Spiderman installation
This Spiderman installation was in Stour Space in Hackney. I stopped by it and took a photo before heading to one of my favourite cafes in London, The Counter. It's a strange piece but I love that Spiderman seems to be the one asking the question. Reminds me of photographer Dina Goldstein's famous Fallen Princesses collection. That should definitely not be making you happy!
4) Bagel-decorated Christmas Tree
This Christmas Tree is decorated with bagels. Enough said.
