Today when I looked in the mirror, I saw my reflection. This is what I saw:

Okay, not really! …but I did wake up feeling tired from lack of sleep. Anyway, when I was in the bathroom getting ready, I gazed into the mirror and saw my reflection. I told myself, “This week is going to be a good week. I just know it.”

So far, I’ve been right! I finished all projects that I needed to do today, and that hardly ever happens. I finished cleaning the kitchen. …and I even managed to plan a last minute trip to Southern California! I was invited to attend and help out at REFLECTIONS this weekend, and I honestly couldn’t resist.

I will be there helping with some of my creative friends, Shelly from Punky Sprouts, Daniela from the Art Life, and the crazy Suzy. We are definitely going to have a blast. If any of you are in the area and plan on going, please let me know, or just stop by the Punky Sprouts booth to say hello.

Lastly, I know some of my readers have been asking to see some of my latest publications. Right now, I’m in this issue:

The best part about this project is how it shows off how I used the Zutter bind-it-all! …and of course, the fact that there’s a cupcake on it! 🙂

Lastly, I wanted to share some of my recent Urban Swank projects.

Yes, I misted on this one, hehe. What?! I can’t help it; consider it a type of addiction. 😉

My second project is a simple card that I created using some of the scraps that I had in my Urban Swank stash. Seriously, these papers are so pretty! You do not have to embellish all that much. The paper seems to do all the work for you.

What do you think?! Pretty, right? Hope you enjoyed my latest! That’s all I can share for today; the rest of my projects will be posted later this week.

In the meantime, take a look into the mirror, look at your reflection, and tell yourself something positive. 🙂
