#SavouringHappiness no32

Welcome to the first #SavouringHappiness post of 2016! We had a brief break for #SavouringJanuary, if you were able to join in with the first #SavouringJanuary on Instagram thank you very much and I hope you enjoyed it.

So, savouring the special and happy moments, however small, in everyday life continues. If you haven’t joined in before it’s super easy. Simply post a photo on Instagram of something that made you smile and add the tag #SavouringHappiness (and me @thegreengable if you like). Every Friday I post a little collection of the photos posted with the tag but you’re free to post whenever you like, and as many pics as you like.

Here are a few #SavouringHappiness shots from the last week:

Here’s what a few Happy Paper Clubbers had to say about their boxes:

“I love what Gabrielle has to offer. I can feel her heart and soul in it. The Happy Paper Club was a great box and something I would recommend. It is a lovely idea and has a really nice to vibe to it.” – Ali from Over a Cuppa

Be useful and be kind, a philosophy for life


This is the advice President Barack Obama gave his daughters on the topic of their future career path. Obama was in conversation with Bear Grylls on a TV programme when he mentioned that he’s happy for his daughters to follow whichever life path they choose but that he asks them to ‘be useful and be kind’.

It’s that simple. In the space of five words I think Obama’s summed up what we should all aim to do in life.:

• be of some use in the world, contribute to society, be helpful to individuals, join in, make a difference
• be kind to anyone who crosses your path in life whatever their status or relationship to you, and be kind to yourself too

Such a straightforward, uncomplicated message from someone in such a powerful position really struck a chord with me. If everyone made their number one underlying purpose in life to be useful and be kind imagine what kind of world we could create.

Begin 2016 with Happy Paper Club

New day, new month, new year. Which means the first Happy Paper Club box of 2016 is now available! You can subscribe for three months, six months, choose an ongoing monthly subscription or try a taster box to see how you like it. Each box is packed full of items from the green gables’ stationery range, an item exclusive to Happy Paper Club, an inspiring quote mini print, a treat from another creative business I love and a letter from me with ideas and tips on finding the joy in everyday life.

Here’s what was in December’s box:


:: a gratitude journal
:: an A6 list note pad
:: a set of six thank you postcards with envelopes
:: a printed cotton bag
:: an inspirational quote mini print
:: a letter from me with ideas on making the most of the new year
:: and all Happy Paper Club subscribers receive a membership card with an exclusive discount at thegreengables.co.uk in their first box


Every month I work with a different independent, British, creative business whom I think are brilliant to bring Happy Paper Clubbers an extra treat. This time Studio 9 gave a special offer on their seedkids range!

All Happy Paper Club boxes are posted together in the last week of the month, so that the contents remain a surprise. If you’d like to be part of Happy Paper Club check out all the info here. Looking forward to welcoming you into the Club!
