A Productive Saturday!

How's your Saturday?  Hope you are having a great time...  It could be cleaning the house, doing diligences out, celebrating a special occasion, working, having fun, or just doing nothing...  Relax.  What is important is that you are enjoying life.  You could enjoy anything you are doing when you focus on your purpose of doing it.

I was kind of tired today 'cause I had a short business trip and arrived home very late last night... but after a good breakfast I've had such great news and positive results...

First, I received an email from a very good friend who had been out of work fighting cancer...  She told me she is now back to work and with a great position in our Governor's house.  Isn't this cool?  Not only I'm happy for her because of her self esteem and because I know how good she is at what she does, but also happy for all the cancer survivors.  Oh, what a good feeling.

Then I visited Scrapping Everyday Miracles blog and I found out I made top three from January challenge and also won some candy from Paper Loves Glue.  What a wonderful surprise!  I never thought my work expressing something of my life can be inspiring to others and be able to touch others' hearts.  I love scrapbooking even more now.

Then I started to work with invitations a friend of mine asked me to make for her daughter's 15th birthday.  I sent them a prototype and they loved it... so I started to cut and make some work on them.  I felt very productive.  I will also be the MC on this birthday... cool, isn't it?  It's on late March, so when I finish the cards I'll show them here.  You know... I'm a full time worker, so it will take a while... LOL.

Finally, I had these tins from some of my husband's colognes...  and if you've read some former posts, I've mentioned I am kind of a hoarder when I see something with potential... but 2013 is my year of organization... I'm trying to organize my scrapbooking room and am doing it slowly, but I'm enjoying it.  So, I decided I could use these tins to organize some pens.  I started covering them with patterned paper...


...Protected with some mod podge...


...And embellished.


I still need some more because I have a lot of glitter pens I don't use because I don't see them... and one of the purposes of organizing is to be able to see some stuff I have in drawers and don't use them often.


So, for now these little tins have a space in my room...  I will probably put them in the desk/table later, when I make more room for them LOL..


Tks for stopping by...  Enjoy life... every minute of it!
