Welcome to Jump for Joy, a new series on JTTG about small, simple ways to boost the joy in your life. The series was inspired by the topic of this first post, a little idea that was so easy and brought so much bang for next to no buck.
Last year, on April Fools Eve, I grabbed a black Sharpie and a set of white, circle stickers bought from the dollar store and anthropomorphized objects all over the house (full credit to Pinterest for the idea). The next morning was greeted by the loveliest laughter as my daughters discovered our curious new housemates. Bonus: the "juice" cups in the photo above were filled with Jello, also a well-received surprise. Nearly a year later, many of these eyes are still up around the house, and they continue to be a source of smiles. For me, they serve as reminders to lighten up and have fun. I mean, how can you stay grumpy when the bannister's looking at you like that?
