One person has made Venice a happier place with just a few stencils, spray paint and some sweetly positive messages.

Rusty Blazenhoff, who lives in Alameda, was visiting South Venice Boulevard when she noticed a series of refreshingly upbeat messages like "You Are Perfect," "High Five" and "You Totally Made My Day." spray-painted on the sidewalk.

She immediately documented them, uploaded the photos to Flickr and shared them on her site, Laughing Squid.

"Not sure who created them but they certainly made my day!" Blazenhoff wrote of the artwork. And now they've made ours too.
