Watercolour Explorations #1 to #25

Have you joined this year’s #The100DayProject? If so, how are you getting along with your respective projects? Mine was going well until I had some family emergency and then had to do a lot of catch ups. But I’m happy I got to the halfway mark in spite of the crazy days at work. So here…

500 Colored Pencils: Fun

Last week, I received a surprise present in the mail. It was a set of the Felissimo coloured pencils, more specifically the FUN set. Oh boy! I was giddy and excited to try these out. I actually knew of these Felissimo coloured pencils years and years ago when I walked into the shop in Beijing….

Educational Trip to Hangzhou

Last April 3 and 4 was a long holiday weekend celebrating the Chinese tradition called Tomb Sweeping Day. We were fortunate to have found an excuse to get out of the city (something I do not typically do especially during holidays in China) at the last minute. We registered and booked our train tickets to Hangzhou with the…

Destination | Melbourne+Sydney

After a hiccup with our visas in August 2016, kids and I were so excited we finally made it to Australia. It has been my dream to take them to places I have been and then take them to new places that we all can explore and experience. It is interesting to see these places…

Travel Journal | Australia

This travel journal has taken the longest to complete I think, out of the travel journals I’ve made. One of the reasons was I did not do any of the pages while on this trip because I ran out of batteries on my Instax Share just as I was about to start on it. And…

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…
