Celebrate with Happy Spaces

Ahoy there me hearties! The 19th of September marks ‘International Talk Like a Pirate Day’ (yes, you read that correctly, this is an actual, genuine international event!). It started as a joke by 2 Americans, John Baur and Mark Summers in 2002 but since then it has continued to gain momentum and is now celebrated the world over.

We can’t think of anything better than a whole day devoted to fun and silliness, so Happy Spaces will be donning bandanas and eye patches, hoisting Jolly Rogers and shouting ‘ARRR’ all day long. Why not join in the fun by roping in the whole family to party like pirates from sun up ‘til sun down and be sure to send us your photos.

And when the party is over, the pirate magic can continue for your little ones with these gorgeous pirate designs from our collection.

So ‘batten down the hatches’ and prepare yourself for a day of swashbuckling fun! Sunday’s kiddie entertainment, DONE!

Recycle your wrapping - clever craft project

Because our art is special to us and we love to make you happy, when you a purchase a Happy Spaces canvas it comes beautifully wrapped with coloured tissue paper, satin ribbon and a specially designed postcard of the artwork you ordered.

We were so excited when the lovely Daisy and William sent us these beautiful photos of a fun craft project that they decided to do when they received a canvas from Happy Spaces. Using our packaging they each created a gorgeous posy of spring blossoms. Not only do we applaud their fantastically creative flair and ingenious idea, we love that our wrapping was able to keep on giving fun. Here they are showing off their very beautiful flowers!

If you or your little ones have any other fun ideas, please let us know by sending us your photos.
