A Day in The Life

We made this fun little video with Staples that shows a peek into our routine at Oh Happy Day (though we did leave out the part where I answer 1 billion boring emails, ha!) As a small business owner, I wear lots of hats and I really love that Staples sells so much more than office supplies so I can buy everything in one place. I really do use it all the time (and they aren’t paying me to say that!)

This post is brought to you by Staples. We’ve got everything a business needs to make more happen. Even a do­-it­-yourself party planner.

Oh Happy Day + Pottery Barn Kids

For the past few months, we’ve been having so much fun creating DIY’s for the Pottery Barn Kids blog, Building Blocks. I’m really proud of all the projects we came up with, so I thought I’d share some of the final photos here too!  For Valentine’s Day, we designed an awesome template for Paper Heart Boxes that you can fill with treats instead of candy. I love that this Pop-Up Paper Alligator template can be used for party decorations or room decor. Our Jumping Jack Easter Bunnies have legs and arms that actually move! And finally we showed a sneak peek of my Kids’ Room. (And don’t forget to check out my favorite items from the Pottery Barn Kids spring collection!)

Grilled Cheese Party

Cheese please!! When Président Cheese approached me about reinventing a classic cheese dish for their new digital showcase “Art of Cheese“, I jumped at the chance to host a Grilled Cheese party. I’ve been wanting to plan a party like this for a while, so it was fun to actually make it happen. My friend Andrea came up with 4 easy grilled cheese recipes that we served to our guests. But, it would also be fun to mix and match the toppings and cheeses and get creative with the recipes! For more fun recipes and entertaining ideas, make sure you check out the Art of Cheese website. Right now they’re hosting a special Pinterest Sweepstakes where you could win $50 worth of their cheese varieties. What’s your favorite kind of grilled cheese sandwich?

Spring Home Shopping

Every spring, I love buying a few special pieces to spruce up my house. I’ve found some awesome things online this past week. In past posts,  I’ve shared that I’ve been using the website Chippmunk when I purchase any clothes online. But I was so excited to discover that they also have great deals at home interior stores! Basically, before I buy anything online I check for store coupons on Chippmunk. They have exclusive coupons for tons of retailers. They also post links to stores that are having good sales. Chippmunk has really changed the way I shop online (and has saved me tons of money on things I’d already be buying.) Here are a few things I’d love to add to our home this spring! (PS – Awesome coupons at West ElmCB2Anthropologie & Serena & Lily!)

Clothes to Party In No. 10

I mentioned them before but I’ve been using the website Chippmunk for my online shopping. It’s a savings search engine. Basically, they rank online coupons and deals so that you can see how much you’ll save at each store. When I’m shopping I see which of my favorite stores are having sales. Or, if I find a piece I love, I can search Chippmunk to find coupons that apply to that purchase. It’s awesome! Here are my favorites I’ve been eyeing this week.
