Analogue 2017

January has passed and we are now into February, a short month. This post is a bit late but still,  I thought I’d share my analogue stack for 2017. Trying to keep things simple in 2017. These 3 notebooks are pretty much my EDC (everyday carry) plus lots of fountain pens. The Stalogy notebook (black…

December Daily 2016 | Part 2

Here is a look at the second and last instalment of my December Daily 2016 album. A few parting notes about my experiences with the 9 albums I’ve made so far… I try to just go with the flow and not overthink or otherwise I won’t be able to finish the album(s) within December or early…

Freebie | PL Title Weekly Cards

Typically I would have my Project Life all planned out for the following year by December of previous year. This year was rather different as I wasn’t sure which format to do. After so much deliberation, I decided to stick with the 9×12 size instead of changing to 6×8. With that decision, I finally got…

December Daily 2016 | Part 1

December! Where did it go? I’m still amazed at how the whole month went in a blur. I think it was more to do with the extra(ordinary) events that seem to happen within the month! Looking back, I am so happy that I managed to get a chance to do the December Daily and finish it…

Free Printables | Journal Cards

Hello 2017! Can’t believe December was gone in a blur. So many projects that I want to share but haven’t gotten to taking photos of them. Amyways, I thought I’d share a little free printable for you, one that I plan to use in my Project Life albums and in my planners. Just simple brush scripts to say…

December Daily 2016 | Ready?

Cannot believe that Christmas is just a few days away! Apart from all the craziness with the holiday season, I have traditionally documented our December days, through Ali Edward’s December Daily. No matter how busy the days are, I still make sure our days are documented as this is our way to reflect and look back on…

DIY + Recycled Watercolour Set Tutorial

These days my head is filled with wanting to get more watercolours as part of my EDC (everyday carry) but haven’t been able to find the ‘right’ one apart from the Peerless watercolors I already have in my Traveler’s Notebook. Until I found these small clear containers on Taobao, but the coordinating case for it was still…

Travel Journal | Seoul

This post is supposed to be about Australia but at the last-minute our plans changed. We literally decided to go to Seoul the day after my visa to Australia was not released on time. Did not have much time to prepare for this trip and ended up using one of the 1/2 Trip notebook inserts I…

An HST Quilt for Patricia

So happy to share the quilt I finished up for my friend, Patricia, last August. This took too long to get started and finished but it when I did finish, I couldn’t help from feeling oh so giddy! Patricia is a very dear friend, our friendship is one I cherish a lot. Her son was in the same class…

Me and my Traveler’s Notebooks

Me and my little collection of Midori Traveler’s Notebook – I only have 3 plus a mini – are well-used as you probably have seen in this blog and thru my IG feed. Yes, I started making my own about 5-6 years ago when I first saw one here in Shanghai, back before there was…

Kyoto & Osaka Book

A few days before our last trip to Japan, I managed to cram some time into finishing this book that has been in my to-list since last year! Somehow I started it but never managed to finish it. So I made sure that this was finished and sent to the printer before we went on the Tokyo trip….

First TN Meetup in Shanghai

This post is a wee bit long overdue. For some reason, I keep forgetting to post this! Anyways, last 28 May, was the very first official Midori Traveler’s Notebook meet up that was sponsored by Midori. It was quite an honour and a privilege to have been invited to join, one of the very few…
