Natural, Recycled and Homemade reminders of the good things.

We believe that life is beautiful and hard, but mostly beautiful.

We Believe in a slower lifestyle that embraces the happy mistakes of being human. We choose to use 100% NATURAL or RECYCLED materials to make our prodcuts because our planet + well being are precious. We'd like to spread our happiness wide, so every product is made by hand with KINDNESS and quality CRAFTSMANSHIP at a price that's afforadable for the people.
When buying an Art Equals Happy product, our aim is for it to remind you about the GOOD THINGS in life, which will hopefully make the bad things feel less bad. Enjoy, Kim Smith
