« Giveaway Day #4 - Towels | Main | Winner #5 »

August 29, 2008



Being on vacation. Anywhere at all. If I'm out of the house, I'm free from responsibility and don't even have to *think* about the piles of things needing done at home because I can't do them! *That* makes me happy. Thanks for all the giveaways!


Spending time with my family is one thing that really makes me happy. Time goes by so quickly and it is hard to believe that my "babies" are 12 (almost 13) and 15 (almost 16). We have been fortunate that we have been able to spend a lot of quality time camping together. This past summer, we spent 12 days in Colorful Colorado and we would not trade a minute of it for anything.
A second thing that makes me happy is having the opportunity to make scrapbooks of our family adventures so that our family will be able to cherish the times we spend together for many years to come.
Thanks Sweetwater for making this possible. I love your products!

Thanks for creating these "happy" products!

Spending time with my family does, but when I need some "Me" happiness, I sit down and scrapbook or I pick up a book and read. Either one allows me to spend some time and regroup.

A good book, a box of chocolates and time with my hubby are what makes me happiest!


Happiness is just plain spending time with my boys... my hubby & my son. A day at the beach is one of our favs!

What makes me happy? My KIDS! When they smile, when they're happy, when they're cuddly, when they're enthusiastic about something. And just being with them. Being divorced, I don't get as much time with them as I want (is it ever enough?), but just their presence in my life makes me happy! And now that I've finally purchased a farm for them to enjoy (all 18 acres!), seeing them enjoying the cats, the land, the woods, the shed, the barn..... that makes me happy and warm inside!


Going on cruises with my hubby is great but I wished the whole family and my friends could come too. I enjoy evenings at home with my hubby and 3 yr old daughter.

Going on vacation with my are always happier and have more fun when you are away from you home town. No drama, no bills, no cleaning the house, I would have to say vacations that allow me to spend quality time with my family is what makes me happy!


Yes, #1 is always family time, but I like my quiet time also, driving my tractor and doing farming


Spending time with family is great if they were nearby..... so I opt for spending it with scrapbooking friends that make me happy!

My family hands down is the most important thing in the world to me! They really do make me happy...but going "beyond that" when you roll over in the morning freaking out because you think you over slept and the kids have to get to school on time...etc....and you realize you acutally can sleep and extra hour or so...awh...nothing better!


Time on the beachs of Maine with my husband and 2 children. We are both in education so we enjoy lots of time together over the summer. School started 3 days ago and I already miss them!



hearing my 15.5 year old son with my 3.5 year old daughter "talk" with each other. very cute!!


Being on holidays with the family! Anywhere relaxful, but preferable hot!! I love that the kids get along and everyone enjoys actually talking at mealtime and joking and goofing for photos! Holidays are magical!
Happy Labour day weekend everyone!!
Enjoy some family time:)

What makes me happy? The fall season-love the leaves, cooler weather, and Ohio State Football. Traveling and scrapbooking also make me very happy, along with my kitty.

Carole Rice

Receiving a new tote bag to fill with scrapping goodies and a pillow to lay my head on and dream of all the pages I will create - someday...that is happiness

Ann K

Being with my family and then scrappin those moments!

Shelly Moniz

Happiness to me is waking up everyday!! I am grateful for everyday that I open my eyes and know I will have another day here to enjoy all the good things in life!! My family, my wonderful hubby and my great son (seeing him grow up into a Awesome young man) and all my 4 legged critters :) Life is a Gift that is why it is called "the Present"
Hope you all have a very safe, fun Holiday Weekend!! ~shelly~


many many things make me happy mostly it's being with my family and friends i love them all so much! and boy do they make me laaaaugh! : )

Lynette C

Doing anything together with my husband and kids is happiness to me. Really, I mean anything, even house chores, school work.........


A clean house, seeing my boys play together and teach each other...a few things, not everything! And spending time with the whole family.


I'm going out on a limb here and listing the first few things I think of besides family/friends- magazines in the mail, lists, and football make me happy!

Hope you have a happy weekend!

Robyn Drothler

TIVO and red wine make me happy! On a more serious note, having my niece and nephews down the street and being able to watch them grow up!


What makes me happiest is being able to be a stay-at-home Mom to my two little girls, I am so thankful for this.


I love my new grandchildren. My family makes me happy too!
