Old and New

I am still in holiday mood. Life at home is amazing. I finally got to do what I wanted to , enjoy life at a slower pace. I don't know why when I am at home I don't think about blogging as much but when I'm at work I constantly thinking about it. Hmmmmm. Is my mind trying to tell me something?

Any way I only managed to make only three layouts this week. Nothing much happened and I scrap at lightning speed thanks to Project Life App.


2016 photos


2000 photos - I really love that I can still scan my old photos and give Project Life touch to it. If only this app were available back then I think I may not have lost a lot of photos and memories from when I just started to build a life as a mother and a wife.

How I use Erin Condren Notebook

I am obsessed with journaling, planners and all things related to it. After watching how people used Erin Condren notebook, I am finally ready to setup my own. I am still trying it out and see how I feel about it. This notebook will be an extension of my Erin Condren Life Planner.  Get 10% off your first purchased with this link.

I love the cover of this notebook. It's exactly the inspiration that I need for 2016.




I add a year at a glance printable since this notebook doesn't come with calendar.


This is my first attempt to document / write down my routine - daily, weekly and monthly. Mostly relative to home and family.



I am also planning to list down all the projects that I have in mind for home - like upgrade my stairs tiles to a better material, redo the kitchen, redecorate my room and many more in mind.


I will also like to have a list of what I want and desire in this notebook


And movies we want to see this year


I also include a gratitude lists for a year in this notebook. I like the idea of making a lists of things I am grateful for at least once a month.



This is something I have been trying out - keeping track / make a lists of things that I need on a trip. I am not good with packing because it's overwhelm me. Hopefully having a lists like this will help me a lot when I am packing for a trip away from home.



I decided that this year I am going to make notes about books that I read especially the non fiction books. What I though about it and what I learned from it.





I am obsess with Zentangle and I am planning to use this space as a a place where I practice and collect all the patterns that I like.


The pages without lines I save it for my vision board - like planners I love, my dream house, my dream desktop, my dream vacation and many more that I fancy this year.


There are still space in the notebook for more. I am thinking of making a list of deep cleaning routine, home maintenance , anything related to keeping my home more organise , menu planning, anything that related to home and family.

Give me a shoutout if you have more ideas for me to try . I love writing in this notebook.

#listersgottalist 2016

I took a break from doing #listersgottalist since November last year. I am also hesitate to do the challenge this year just because I can't find a simple and yet beautiful journal to write on until I discovered Year of the Doodle book. 

All of the pages in this book is dated with colourful papers. I don't have to do anything else except write down my lists. I basically have one year of book ready for 2016 #listersgottalist challenge. 

February lists

This is what the rest of the book looked like. I bought this book from Kinokuniya bookstore and it cost me RM77.12,

#thursday3 on friday

I was so sick yesterday that I did get a chance to update my blog. A lot of people are suck during this hot hot hot weather.

Fun Facts about me
1. Sick and tired most of the time this week
2. Obsess with GTD and Evernote
3. I can't stop shopping for planners. I know I should stop but my self restraint seems to be off

Think about it this way…If you take one picture and write down three facts each week — at the end of the year you’ll have more than 50 photos of yourself and 150 facts about what life has been like. It would make such an epic All About Me book — and most of the work is already done." - rukristin.com

PRACTICE one little word in february

I feel like this year will be my best year yet. One of the reason is I am taking One Little Word 2016 class this year, choosing a word for 2016, show up for my word and do something about it. I like living life intentionally, plan for it and keeping track of it. I like checking things of my lists. 


This month prompt is a little bit hard for me. Well the prompt is simple PRACTICE. The hardest part is to choose just one action or habit that you want to improve or get you closer to your word. And do that action every single day.

This is a tough one because I have so many action I want to do and choosing just one is going to be a challenge for me. FOCUS really help me in choosing what I want to PRACTICE this month. I have to go back to last month assignment, look back at all of the area that I want to practice FOCUS, make a lists of actionable things I can do to achieve my goals. This brainstorming session I have with myself really help me FOCUS and choose only one action I want to make a habit which is Keeping my Inbox to Zero.

Last month I reread Getting Things Done by David Allen and I was so inspired to implement his method. Getting things out of my mind is my main focus this month. I have to keep reminding myself that "YOUR MIND IS NOT FOR STORAGE, YOUR MIND IS FOR THINKING AND CREATE IDEAS" , so keeping my Inbox to Zero is my baby step to clear my mind.    

The planner girl inside of me screaming to print this month kit to fit personal size planner. I am excited that I can finally utilize my Paperdorable Planner for this month assignment.

I dedicate a section my planner for One Little Word where I can plan, take notes and jot down my thoughts on how to stay connected to FOCUS this year. 

I printed the goal tracker and put in my planner. I also made a checklist of all my emails and what I want to do for this month. My plan is to spend at least 30 minutes each day and go through all my mailbox. On the fly I have to decide if the mail I received is an action, reference materials or just noise. I will delete all the noise email immediately, take action if it's less than two minutes and file the mail if it's something I want to refer in the future.

The idea of keeping your inbox to zero is not new to me but to make it a habit is something different. So this month I want to FOCUS on making Keeping my Inbox to Zero as a habit I want to develop and practice all the time.

Wish me luck
