Happy Valentine's Day!


Happy Valentine's Day!

Hope you're up to something festive tonight! I'm goin to see The Vow with the girlies, yay! Channing and Rachel are my fav actors, I'm pumped!

Has anyone else been exhausted lately? Here in Denver, we're at that point in winter where this girl is beach-sick. I'm tired of being cold, and I just want to take a nap on the beach. I've settled into a routine of naps and tea to combat the cold.


In between extra sleep and extra caffeine, I've been working on some awesome freemium for Paper & Glam! If you're like me, you struggle with time management. Last month, I decided to go back to an old school paper and pen planner. I fell in love with the life planners from Erin Condren.

If you have time, her video rocks. I feel more organized just watching it.

Unfortunately, a $50 chaos averter is not in my budget. But, then magic happened...with my InDesign skills and a $5 binding job from Staples...I realized I can make a planner. The best part? It's going to be free for download. 

Here's a sneak peek at the weekly pages in the works:

This week my besties are test driving the Paper & Glam planner, and giving me their feedback. It's coming, get excited! 

Don't worry, it's managable...and best of all, it's motivating! There are daily pages for Monday-Friday, weekly, and monthly pages. You'll be able to choose which to use based on what fits for your life, or use the whole planner. 

The last six weeks I've spent training for Miss USA, and making-over the Denver Dreamhome to accommodate the mountain of boxes that came out of storage in San Diego. 

Perfect Conditions

It's so hard to train with snow on the ground! Miss Colorado USA pictures are April 6th, and I've got some serious work to's game time! And, it's GLAM ON.

Last Valentine's Day, I brought these adorable heart-shaped donuts in for my team...and this picture is about as close to sugar as I'll be getting this year.


Cubicleville in Corporateland beckons, but there's lots in the works for Paper & Glam! Don't take my week blogging vacation for complacency. ; ) I've been working like crazy trying to get my little home back to sparkle...and I'm almost there! 

Dreamhome Update

This month, watch for the re-vamped Denver Dreamhome, my training regimen for Miss Colorado USA, and what I promise will be an epic free downloadable life planner/chaos averter/time manager/goal tracker.

Ready to get organized and accountable with me?!

I'll leave yah with a fresh perspective on the Love Wins! holiday...

Valentine's Day John 316

much Love, y'all.
