    Weekend projects

    No weekend plans? No problem! Plenty of ways to pass the time with weekend projects! Some sneak peeks: Saturday stay-in!   Cool cats. Planning to do tons of these for a promo piece.   Sad panda with a mustache. Um, what?   Catching up on my travel journal backlog (again… more on that in a future blog post… when I finish the journal).   Photos are from my Instagram account (@regsilvadotcom). Hope you had a good weekend! My Facebook page, by the way, recently hit 200+ likes (thank you!). Get in on that for occasional, non-spammy, and non-annoying updates: http://facebook.com/regsilvadotcom 🙂
