Make My Day

Happy Birthday to me.

Today I am working my way through a long list of my favorite things to do. Meet a friend for coffee at Starbucks, visit the pumpkin patch, Boo houses, and spread a little Shine.

If you tuned in on Monday, you know that today is a special edition of Shineworks. The goal of Shineworks is to use your creativity and an every day item (this time a drink holder) to spread shine in your corner of the world.

I started by spray painting my drink holder yellow. And then I sprayed over it with glitter. 

Next. Bake yellow cupcakes and ice them with nothing other than yellow frosting. Don’t forget the yellow sugar crystals.

A cutout yellow sun stuck in styrofoam makes a cheery centerpiece.

Handmade cupcake toppers make the perfect place to write someone’s name or an uplifting note.

The best part, of course, will be presenting them to handpicked but unsuspecting people.

Enjoy your day as much I intend to enjoy mine.

Shining off until…
