The Big Creative Reveal

The Big Creative Reveal

Boy do I have a treat for you! I have been working with some very wonderful & talented people to bring you a shot of creative juice next week! YUMMY, just what we need! Tasty creative juice! During the holiday season our creativity is challenged, we need to be organized, want things to look pretty, and want to be inspired to make the most of our holidays and (for some of you) your creative businesses.

Well, I think I have just the perfect week planned starting next Monday. In addition to the real life party I just found out I am hosting in two weeks (eek!), we are going to get festive here again on my blog. Yep! Two marvelous ladies from a fabulous shop are whipping up some gift wrapping ideas you are going to love.

And to make it into a party (What? Who me? No, I don’t have to make everything a party! Alright, yes I do) there is a prize involved. But, wait, there’s more. Just to make sure we feel super festive all week, we’ve invited some other women to contribute to inspiring us with their own creative ideas and spaces. There will be no shortage of creative inspiration of all sorts flowing next week.

Now, you know me. I make things up as I go along. So really, I can’t tell you exactly how this is all going to work. But I can tell you that if you stay tuned, you’ll be the first to know. I’ll update you as soon as thoughts come to mind. And I’ll reveal the shop soon, because I believe the prize photo will be posted on Wednesday! Stay tuned, my little chickadees!

Happy Monday!
