crazy for freestyle

Ever since I learned about freestyle scrapbook from Jessica Sprague class, I am totally hook. I’ve been spending most of the day and night practicing what I’ve learned and try to make beautiful layouts.

Here are some of the layouts I made using some of the techniques I’ve learned so far.

10 things // at 41

I read this in my email today..,
"What makes each of us happy depends on several factors, like age, gender, career, and so on.

Tomorrow morning, make a list of ten things that make you happy, or list ten areas of your life that put a smile on your face.

Next, carry this list with you throughout your day, and look back at it when you start to feel stressed or overwhelmed. This list can become a constant reminder of all the good aspects of your life AND it can provide you with a jolt of positive energy when you might need it"
from Get Organize Now newsletter



It has been a while since the last time I made a happy list, so I think it's about time I count my blessing.
Here are my current top ten:
#1- my new baby boy
#2 - the happiest baby on the block book. The technique suggested in the book really help trigger the claming reflex
#3 - baby shushing apps for iphone -- really help my baby fall asleep and stay asleep
#4 - Leverage season 1 untill season 4 -- really entertain me and help me understand human behavior
#5 - Swaddle Me instant swaddle-- this really a life saver for me. My baby love it!
#6 - Dig in Deeper online class from Jessica Sprague -- I really learn a lot in this class


#7 - Herbalife Formula one and formula three shake to help me fill fuller longer and help with my milk supply
#8 - breastefeedinh my baby, it's one of the greatest joy in the world


#9 - the happiest baby guide to great sleep, new book from Dr. Karp -- he talk about how to teach your baby to sleep beyond the forth trimester till age five
#10 - swing from Graco.. Instant favorite from the begining

free style // lesson 4

Finally this afternoon I get a chance to sit down and walk through Lesson 4 of this amazing online class. It’s a little bit out of my comfort zone. I’ve never really master this type of design but I really love it.

this this lesson I learned:

  • Mask and blend a photo onto a digital patterned paper
  • Journal around the edges of a layout
  • Journal with dingbats between sentences
  • Create a halftone circle overlay
  • Create a title with underpainting –> I really love this technique!
  • Create a halftone effect on an image – I didn’t know that we can do this in photoshop. I really love the look

I had so much fun in this class. I didn’t really used the class material except for the fonts and the dingbats. I tried to put my own interpretation of it. I  really need to practice more with this type of scrapping.

this is what we are suppose to make

my typical Wednesday afternoon

Putting my baby to for an afternoon nap. He seems to love swing (what baby doesn’t love swing). He falls asleep after I swing him for one minute. Love this swing from GRACO.

Time does fly

Just something I cooked up while busy with a lot of different project and experiment. I love experimenting new things with my baby. Too bad this precious moment won't last for very long. timedoesfly-web

With all the things I’ve learned and all the cool stuffs and gadgets they have for babies, I just want to have more. Too bad my doctor recommend against having another baby. I just have to enjoy these precious moments before it is gone forever.

(Note: Oh My God! Tomorrow is Wednesday. I just don’t want this week to end)

day 185–day 191 // life randomness

I had an amazing week. So many things happening that I just didn’t have the time to devote myself to this blog and scrapping. I think this week will be a little bit slower for me. I need to prepare myself for Ramadhan which will be just around the corner. I am not sure if I could fast for the whole month because I am breastfeeding exclusively. I am just going to play by the ear.

Anyway here are my daily photos from last week till today

day 185 – Hanif is more aware of his surrounding which makes him more alert during the day

day 186 – taking Hanif out for the evening

On my to watch TV series:
Leverage Season 1 until Season 3 – I saw the promotion on TV about this show that I decided to give it a try. So far not bad.

On my Nightstand:
The Happiest Baby Guide to Great Sleep by Dr Harvey Karp – I bought this book yesterday and I couldn’t put it down. My baby is approaching 3 months and after forth trimester the calming reflex might not work anymore. I need new ways to put my baby to sleep. As always I really love Dr. Karp ideas and approach. So easy to follow.

On my wish list:

On my mind:
Now I have to many things I wanted to do that sometimes I just don’t know where to begin. I really need to prioritize things just get some of them out of my to do list
