AUGUST FAVORITES

  • This is such a sad month for me. No words can describe how I am feeling at the moment.
  • I registered for September 2014 30 days of lists project. The only project that I have been doing since the last two years.
  • I join 30 days of lists bog hop and it was so much fun.
  • I am not sure if I ever finished any book in August. I am still reading the Cuckoo's Calling and I am grieving. Not a great combination to get excited about a book. Regardless of the unpleasant feeling, I still enjoy reading it. I think I've finished reading Divergent .
  • Playing catch up with my Project Life layout for week 30 - week 34. 

I hope you had an amazing August. No matter how hard life gets, try to stay positive and look for things to be grateful for. 

Project 365 [ Week 35]

If it was up to me, I don't think I want to go back to work and face other people. Sometimes I just felt like staying in my room all day long. Work is the last thing on my mind right now. I wish I have the luxury to just quit and travel the world. I want to see all the beautiful places and experience life to the fullest , not coop up in my room and do things that seems important but somehow it's not.

HERE IS MY WEEK IN PHOTOS

day 237- I was taking the day off and I got a chance to spend it with my boy. Love the routine of a stay at home mom

day 237

day 239- I start to write again in my journal. I have no idea why I stop in the first place. I am still processing the death of my mom and writing did help a lot with sorting out my feelings and my thinking.
day 239

day 238- First day back to work, and I am listening to the Cuckoo's Calling audible book. It took my awhile to read the book but listening to book help me capture the essence of the book and really help me a lot with the slang and the language.

day 238

day 240- Suddenly I saw this cute boy put on the bucket as a hat and play with his plastic toy. Such a beautiful sight to watch me get involve with this toy.

day 240-2 

day 241- I just can't believe how grown up he got in less then four months. He is definitely not a baby anymore. No mistake about it.

day 242

day 242 - My daughter is getting bigger and smarter now. She is such a beautiful girl inside and out. The best part was she loves me dearly and we have a lot in common.


day 241-1

day 243- Getting ready for 30 days of lists September project tomorrow. This definitely my album for the next 30 days. Can't wait to share!

day 243

------------------------------------------------------------------
These are my life in photos for week thirty five.  So many things happened and if I don't take the time to document them I might miss a lot. I still believe when you took the time to document the every day and the good things that happened in your life, you will be more grateful. Just saying.

Do you join Project 365 this year?

#thursday3 [28.08.2014]

I am not ok. Admitting that is something that I don't want to do. People around me told me to be strong, to accept the lost and move on. How can I? The one person that was always on my side is gone now. Life is not the same anymore and I don't know how to live my life without her. 

HERE ARE MY PHOTO AND FACTS FOR THE WEEK 

28082014

#1. I am still reading and listening to the Cuckoo's Calling. I love the book so far.
#2. I take an Art Journal online class at Jessica Sprague dot com. I am excited to learn new things. I think learning should be fun.
#3. I am getting excited with 30 days of lists project which is going live next month.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
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."

30 days blog hop // Books I like to read this year

I am super duper excited to be doing September 2014 30 days of lists. So to get in the mood of listings, Amy and Kam invited us to participate in a blog hop by choosing a prompt from March 2011 lists and made the lists. I did participate way back in 2011 and it sure nice to see what my lists look like now and then.

I choose:

List #26: Books I like to read this year


Untitled

  • The Cuckoo's Calling
  • the Silkworm
  • the 9th Girl
  • Gone Girl
  • Insurgent
  • Mr. Mercedes
  • Big Little Lies
  • Gone - James Patterson
And this is what my lists looked like in 2011.

I made the above list using my iPhone. The app used are Picframe for the layout and Phonto app for the text. And my photo is from my camera phone. I adjust the size of the frame to 4:3 so that I can print on 4x6 photo paper with Canon Selphy printer.

Blog hop #30lists

To see the other lists from listers, hop on the blog train and enjoy the ride:
- My Life as a teacup
- Life Behind the purple door
- Nightwolf's Den
- the Nerd Nest
- Nina is a papernerd
- and for more go here for a complete list

Love reading all the lists so far. I just didn't realised that there are so many listers out there. You can also join in the blog hop challenge by...

1. Going to the (free) March 2011 30 Days of Lists site
2. Choosing one of those list prompts
3. Create your own list — either on a post-it, digitally, art journal or however you like.
4. Post your list in a blog post
5. Link up your post so everyone can see it too!

-------------------------------------------------------------
30 Days of Lists is a semi-annual journaling challenge for Listers, from Kam of Campfire Chic and Amy of Lemon and Raspberry.
Not everyone can make a mini scrapbook every week or an art journal page every night. 30 Days of Lists is our encouragement and challenge to you that you CAN journal just something every day — even something as small as a list.

Project Life [Week Thirty Two]

I am trying really hard to be okay, to be normal again and do normal things. It's harder than I thought to pick up your life. I am forcing myself to scrapbook and do project life layout because this is the only activity than can help me mentally and emotionally.
Today I made Project Life Week 32 layouts. I really went all out with the journal. It's a little deeper than I intended but somehow I want to capture the feelings and the emotions

Project Life [Week Thirty One]

I am slowly picking up my life. It's not easy to recover from my lost. Losing your mother is not something that is easy to recover. I know if my mom is here, she probably scolded me if I cry all the time. She wants me to do things that make me happy and live my life to the fullest.
I do take photos daily but I am slowly catching up with my Project Life layout. I don't really felt inspire at the moment but slowly I am getting there. 
Anyway I got a chance to do Project Life Layout for 31 only. I have week 32 and 33 to make by this week if I want to catch up.
