dears, i cannot tell you how excited i am to begin holiday gift-giving. my theme for this year is "instant happy."my goal for each gift is that its recipient will have and instantaneous bolt of joy just by gazing upon the gift. i thought i'd give you a few examples of instant happy to illustrate this principle.

Dillon Designs' Shutterbug Ring.
{Can you imagine the smiles this ring would bring the the face of a photo-phile?}

Silver Sparrow Designs' Baby Beluga Necklace.
On the back it says "Just a little white whale on the go."
{In order to receive this little bit of instant happy in time for Christmas, place your order today.}

LaPomme's Linda, A Sleep Angel.
{This is sweetness plus love plus serenity plus pretty pretty. Perfection.}

Whippy Dipp's Creepy Crawly Madness Necklace.
{A wild & wonderful, color-heavy talisman to ward off a bad day.}

Caitlin Kuhwald's Ira Glass print.
{You know we cannot get enough of Ira at my house. Ira plus a rainbow = me over the moon.}

Mullish Muse's Karl Lagerfelt.
{Fashion-y. Felt-y. Fun-ny. Have I mentioned what a sucker for puns I am?}

LaBete Handmade's Embroidered Lion Pillow Plush Doll.
{This is the perfect antidote for a serious couch.}

Ittichips' limited edition Yeti print.
{You thought the Yeti was extinct? Not with this print hanging in your hallway.}

Now, what's your instant happy? xo
