JOY - A source or cause of keen pleasure or delight; something exceptionally festive or satisfying.

What a great way to kick off JOY week eh? The Everyday Bliss Giveaway is over and we have or winners! Coincidentally all three of my winners have an ETSY shop so I will be giving them a little linky love this morning. (For those of you eager to get back to the Everyday Bliss Game, please note I will be posting this week's Bliss Initiatives in my next post.)  So without further ado:

HecketyBeckety's ETSY Shop Announcement

Welcome to the West of Ireland where the rain falls soft, the winds blow hard, and thrifty crafting is still a way of living! I use vintage and upcycled materials whenever possible and enjoy discovering new ways to re-invent old ideas. I handmake all these crafted items myself in a smoke-free environment. 
I am a member of the Crafty Ireland Team!
