Welcome to MakeHappy.

I make food.
I make crafty things.
I make pictures.
I make happy.
You should, too.

My name is Marisa. (Pronounced mah-ree-sah.) Thanks for stopping by. It truly is an honor that you take time out of your day to visit me.

I don't sew from patterns. I don't measure ingredients when I'm cooking (unless I'm baking something picky). I can only knit scarves and blankets because I refuse to learn how to measure my gauge. I make things because it makes me happy to create something where there was nothing before. And despite my aversion to measurement, things always turn out just fine.

**Update: This blog is now fairly inactive. I may post from time to time, but I don't check in regularly. If you have any questions, comments or suggestions, feel free to send me an email at makehappymama [at] gmail [dot] com.
