Why don’t we love Mondays? my first LinkedIn's blog post

Hello friends! :)
Some days ago I was invited to publish on LinkedIn's blog, so today I'm writing my first post there. It's here too and I hope you enjoy it!

I know, we hate Mondays and think it’s the worst week’s day. But why? Is it because we have to be back at work? Is it because our weekend, the time for relaxing and having fun, ends? Maybe. But I have stronger reasons to consider Mondays one of the best week’s day.

First, you’re starting a new day and that’s always great! then you’re starting your work week, very positive, too! Since every beginning gives the opportunity to a fresh start, to try new things, to live new adventures, to be better in every way, why don’t we love Mondays?

Starting today, let’s love Mondays! and think, what would you like to accomplish this week? What steps are you going to follow to be closer to your goals? What good things could happen in your life this week? and don’t forget to be grateful for your weekend!
All of that will empower you to start your week with a very positive attitude… and love Mondays! With this mindset I’m sure you’ll be able to achieve wonderful things!

Have an awesome Monday! ♥


Illustration Friday: Golden

Hello everyone! how have you been? sorry I've been MIA. It's very busy here at Softpencil Studios (I have a new agent and I'm working on exciting projects!) but I promise I’ll tell you everything on a next post ;)

This week’s topic on Illustration Friday is “Golden” and I couldn’t miss the chance to play with some golden glitter. As you know I LOVE glitter and everything sparkly! So here is Charmy, the little fairy, daring you to find the magic in each and every thing. Hope you like it!

Have a creative Monday! ♥


Happy 2014! ♥

To my friends, my customers, my fans, my licensees and my agents (yay! I have signed with 2 agents this year!) have a happy new year filled with lots of love and abundance! ♥



Owl the same... or not Blog Hop

Hello friends! how are you? I'm so excited to be participating in this blog hop with my fellow artists friends!

If this is the first time you're here... welcome! so glad you're visiting my blog! let me introduce myself,
my name is Elizabeth Pujalka and I'm the illustrator and designer behind Softpencil Studios and the creator of the Tinytwinies®, six cute characters that you can find on clear stamps through Latina Crafter, as well as on other products.

As you already know, the purpose of this blog hop is spreading the word about our work at Stamp Out and educating the crafting community about copyrights, while helping others (we chose Project C.U.R.E.)
Through the digi stamps we're offering today, we want to show you the difference between imitation and inspiration, that's not the same at all. We face serious copyright issues each day that are hurting our small businesses and need your help. So we hope you can join us and support the artists you love :)

You'll be able to purchase my digi-stamp "Chilly owlies" from today, Oct 14 to Oct 17 and all the proceeds will go to Project C.U.R.E. We have also set up our own official fundraising page where you can donate.
Thanks sooo much for your help! This is your last stop, I hope you've had much fun!
