This week I found happiness with friends – my best friend from university (I met her on the first day of uni 22 years ago), we were each others bridesmaids, and I’m a godmother of her oldest daughter (now 12) came down to visit from Canberra with her 3 daughters and husband. It was great to actually have the time to chat, the kids all played together (it’s school holidays) and had a great time.
Also, I’m so excited, the new colour system I’ve been working on for the past 4 months has finally arrived from the printer after many test print runs. This weekend I’ll be putting together my new swatches. Interestingly, it was the friend who visited me this week who was one of the inspirations for the new colour system, as I’d never felt completely happy that the swatch I’d given her was quite right, but there hadn’t been any other options that worked at all for her.
While she was here I draped her with the drapes for my new system and I was so excited to find that the group I created because of her worked well for her and she loved the colours more than the other ones I’d given her originally. I then draped the rest of her family and quickly worked out what suited each, they liked the colours too.
For me this week, happiness came from seeing the results of hard work.
What made you happy this week?
