Meet Lisa at The Pursuit of Happiness


Today I'd like you all to meet Lisa at The Pursuit of Happiness!


Lisa was one of my very first bloggy friends. :)  And are you curious about the title of her blog?  She says, "The Pursuit of Happiness is my daily reminder that I need to learn to appreciate the little things in life and not stress so much."  I know I could use a daily reminder like that!

Lisa has lots of crafty projects up her sleeves AND she's always sharing DELICIOUS recipes -- yum! (I know this isn't really a food blog -- but oh my GOSH, you have to check out some of her favorite recipes here.) 

One of my favorite projects of hers is her "new" bathroom -- she did an amazing job -- see for yourself! (And be sure to check out her painting tips
that she used while painting her bathroom)

Here are some before pictures of her bathroom:














  
And here is her AFTER:















AMAZING, right??!?

Did you see the little rug peaking out of those pictures?  She made it!  Aaand, she gives you a tutorial on how to make your own!



She made this cute towel rug too (the same way as the t-shirt rug, but with towels!):


I am SO making one of these for my bathroom (I can never find the right size rug for our tiny Master Bath).

She's chalked full of AWESOME ideas -- here are a few more of my favorites:




Isn't she SO talented?!?  I LOVE all her ideas, recipes and makeovers -- they are awesome!  Plus I have to tell you that she just ran her first 5K and completely inspired me :)

Be sure to visit her blog, The Pursuit of Happiness and check out all the awesome things she shows you and shares with you.

Thanks so much Lisa, for sharing all your ideas and recipes with us and "introducing" yourself! :)
