International Day of Happiness

March 20th is the International Day of Happiness!

The International Day of Happiness was introduced by the General Assembly of the United Nations during 2012 and was celebrated for the first time in 2013. Through seminars and educational tips and tools, the aim is to educate and increase public awareness of the benefits of happiness.

This photo came from the Unsplash website and was made by Austin Schmid.

The original idea came from the Kingdom of Bhutan in the Himalayan region of Asia. There, the population is thought by many to be among the happiest in the world due to the holistic approach to life and the amount of importance which is placed on the well being of people and communities, as much as material wealth.

For everyone, the day is a useful reminder that in general, happiness does not necessarily come from buying and consuming, or from being famous or glamorous – but often from friends, family and emotional well being. Internationally, there are many events and websites in which people may participate.

Happy spring!

Today on March 20, 2017 Spring begins! Spring is often associated with new growth, plants flowering, snow melting or melted and a new warmth in the air with plants/ animals coming out from the long winter of cold temperatures. In the Northern Hemisphere spring comes in the March, April and June months and in the Southern Hemisphere it comes in the September, October and December months. Spring comes about by the Earth increasing its axis tilt relative to the sun increasing the temperatures (more direct sunlight) and the length of the days.

Here are some beautiful spring pictures from my garden!

#Earrings365 - day 64 - We're All Ears: March Reveal

Each month Erin Prais-Hintz presents a theme, with inspiration photos, and invites jewelry designers to create earrings for the “We’re All Ears” challenge. The earring design challenge theme for this month is owls.

Owls represent wisdom and truth with piercing eyes that are all-seeing, even in the darkest of nights. Silent, secret and majestic. As a personal totem they symbolize the capacity to see beyond deceit, a heightened intuition and are harbingers of life transitions and change.


This months theme is perfect for me because I really love owls. I collect owl figurines and I have a lot of owl charms in my stash to make jewelry.

And here you see the earrings I made for this challenge and for the 64th day of my #Earrings365 challenge!




For this pair of earrings I chose for Swarovski beads in crystal ab, lila ab, dark purple ab and silver colored owl charms.
