Spring Break was fantastic. Lots of self-pampering including a new haircut/color:
I really really love it. I can do SOO many things with it TOO! I love a good edgy haircut. I'm open to almost anything. :]
I also went to a Creative Memories scrap retreat with my sister on break too which was SO cool. I go every year and this year was no exception.
I didn't get a TON done, but i got my December Daily FINISHED, 4 12x12 layouts, and almost got my mini journal project done that I got from Miss Holly back in October! Sadly...I'm super scatterbrained and did NOT take pics of my 12x12s before i left home but i will get those as SOON as i can.
*Check THIS out as soon as you can! Right now Creative Memories is supporting the Make-a-Wish Foundation by selling Make-a-Wish products and donating some of the proceeds. I bought the Wishes and Dreams Kit at the retreat and am LOVING it. SO inspirational AND I'm helping an excellent cause. :]
I also went shopping and bought a TON of cute stuff including:
I think they really resemble a low-budget version of the Coach shoes I was wanting because mine have little "n's" all over them. lol
As far as art goes, I made the CATWALK today! Go Check it out!
Also, I've been making progress on my future art career. This week I started a "Design Inspiration Notebook" that is going to contain ideas for a future store, product ideas, decor, patterns and colors that i LOVE, and more. I bought this:
to contain everything that i compile. It's full of fun pockets and folders and sleeves. Mmmm i love inspiration.
I made a layout for the Style Star Contest for SIS but I think they asked that it remain only in the contest folder while its going on. lol
