January 2015 favourites

January 2015 favourites

JANUARY 2015 FAVORITES

  • And I am hunting some old collections and new collections to feed my obsession.
  • So obviously the iPad App I am obsess with this month is GoodNotes 4
  • January is definitely not a good reading month for me. I only read one book and it's an audiobook combine with ebook - The Forgotten by David Baldacci. Apparently getting back on reading bandwagon is not easy. Hopefully I have a good month in February
  • I watched Taken 3. Somehow this movie doesn't feel like Taken movie. It's just another action movie with Liam Neeson beating up bad guys.
  • I am still a part of Creative Team for Pixelily Designs. I love her work and I am a bit lazy to look for another team.
I hope you had an amazing January.  No matter how hard life gets, try to stay positive and look for things to be grateful for.

Hanif at 33 months

meandhanif

It has been awhile since the last time I talk about Hanif. My almost three years old boy which I love so deeply. Since he is more aware of his life and surrounding, it has been very difficult to get his attention when taking photos of him. 

Here are some of random thing about him at the moment.


  • He loves color. I think he obsess with color. Ever since he recognise the name colors he has been very vocal about it when describing things. He will definitely mention the color first.
  • He can connect things faster. Since his swimming suit is in orange, any orange clothing he will associate it with swimming
  • He can say numbers and recognise the symbol up to twenty
  • He can vocally say a few words to describe what he wants
  • He still looked for me when he didn't see me around the house
  • He can talk on the phone with me, so so cute
  • He still prefers me. Thanks darling for loving me unconditionally
  • He loves to hugs me early in the morning
  • His obsession with iPad is within control. He can play with his physical toys even when his iPad is within reach. He still choose to play with his ball, ultra man toys and cars
  • I have changed his milk to Anmum 4 (for 3 years and up). He seems to like the flavour
  • He will be three years old in less than four months. 
  • He is still the most beautiful thing ever. Watching him sleep is one of my favorite thing in the world.
I am so looking forward to see him grow, learn new things and become his own person. I pray that I will be around to see him grow up. I love you so much.

#thursday3 [ 29. 01. 2015]

I was planning of updating my blog yesterday but my internet connection was suddenly down. It appeared that something is wrong with my bills. I hope that all of the confusion will get sort out today. Life without internet feel empty and uncertain. 
Moving on to my Thursday, as always taking a selfie is one of my favourite hobby. I really hope that the front facing camera is much better in the future model. The camera looks great when there's a lot of light but noisy when there's none.

HERE ARE MY PHOTO AND FACTS FOR THE WEEK 

29012015

#1. I am reading the history of Makkah and Madinah. I've always love reading history.
#2. My obsession with decorating planner is getting out of control. Now it has spill out to my journal and smash book. I just wish that there's lots of washi tapes available locally. 
#3. I am watching Arrow Season 2. Urghhh I am not so sure I like Oliver Queen in these TV Series. I missed Oliver Queen in Smallville, which I think has more character and responsibilities saving the world.

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

Crazy for alphas

Every since I got addicted to planner decoration on my iPad, I have been hunting for beautiful alphas on digi land. I love the fact that I can make many different words with the alpha like to do lists, checklists, goals and many more.

I like using these words like a sticker on my digital planner. GoodNotes app support .png files, so I got this transparent words paste inside my day planner.





To download this words, just click on the link below the words. All of these words are in png format. You can print them on your project life card or paste them in your digital day planner or even print a series of these words and make your own stickers.

This is how I used my words in my digital day planner. I have enough space to move around and with digital you can change the size and oreintation of any images insert in this planner

Photo 1-27-15, 8 30 48 PM

I just love the look of these word in my planner. I can choose different alphas, mixed them up and make tons of word stickers to my liking. This one of many reasons why I love doing digital planner with my iPad.

Project Life Layout Week 04

For Week four I go back to Project Life app on my iPad. Somehow this week I don't have enough time to sit in front of my computer and decorate my week four layout. I did this layout during my lunch break at work using Project 52 kit - in app purchased. I love this new kit. I can add the title page with the appropriate week and this cut down my process by 20%. If you have an iPad Air or iPad mini and iPhone, download the Project Life App from apple store. You will not regret it.

Project 365 [Week 04]

2015 does not start kindly. I am not sure what to expect or what to feel. I am still adjusting to life without my mother. In a way I am still mourning her death. I will get sad every time Friday comes. I will play the scenario over and over again. It like living in a loop. I am not sure how long this will go on. I can't seem to discuss this with people close to me. Somehow they think I am crazy for thinking this way. Anyway moving on to my photos of the week....

HERE IS MY WEEK IN PHOTOS

DAY 019- I am loving my new wrist watch. I am not usually buy a gold color watch. I still wish they have one in pink. Anyway after wearing it daily, I fall in love with it. Thanks darling for this beautiful gift.

DAY 020- The second day work I attended 1Aksess Seminar at UNITEN Hotel. It was interesting topic but I still don't get the point.

Day 020

DAY 021- Having dinner with my daughter as usual. Today I tried their Mee Bandung Muar. It was good but not as good as the one in Muar. And my obsession with decorating my planner is beyond control.

Day 021

DAY 022- Went for a medical checkup at our local clinic. It's about time I made the time to do a routine checkup.

Day 022

Day 024

5 things // Planner Obsession the digital version

Ever since I discovered how fun it is to decorate my 2015 digital day planner, I have been hunting my stash of digital elements from my collection including digital washi tapes, to add in my day planner. I just love that I can make beautiful day planner with what I already have in my collection. I have been doing digital scrapbooking way back when the only cool photo editing software was Adobe Photoshop 4.0. So my collection is humongous! 

My desire to keep up with the latest and the newest designs is out of control. I am always hunting for new and latest digital scrapbook kits but now I am only looking at the element part of scrapbooking like ribbon, stitches, alpha, word art, stickers and cute washi tapes. Luckily I don't do the hardcopy version of the planner decoration. Otherwise I will be hunting for pretty covers, dividers and bookmarks.

My go-to digital scrapbook shops that I have been visiting a lot are SweetShoppe Designs, The Lilypad, Gotta Pixels and Scrapbookgraphics. They have lots of beautiful digital products that you can used for your planner.

Right now I have been eyeing these products:

#1. Fantabulous Fall Alpha by Kate Hadfield Designs.



#2. Be Wild and Free - Word Art by Studio Angie Young




#3. Secret Agent Alpha by Studio Dawn





#5. Valentine's Sketchbook: Ornaments by Studio JM designs



I know, I know some of the elements for the planner I can just make myself but somehow I lack time and energy to do so. I love looking at pretty things including my pretty digital planner. Who knows maybe in a week or two I might add Menu Planner in the mix. 

I hope you enjoy my selection. If you like to go digital this year, then check out the above stores for more beautiful digital products to droll on. Happy hunting.

#thursday3 [22.01.2015]

Now we are almost at the end of January. Time seems to fly a little bit faster this year. I am not planning to do a lot of changes at work but I want to do a lot of changes at home. My battle fighting fat is still on going. It looks like I have to find or create a new strategy to combat fat.

HERE ARE MY PHOTO AND FACTS FOR THE WEEK 

22012015

#1. I finally get a chance to do a medical checkup today. It's about time.
#2. Finally I've finished reading The Forgotten book and now I am moving on to Flesh and Blood by Patricia Cornwell 
#3. I am loving 'bawal' hijab again. Love the fabric and love how it fit me perfectly. Not a mom friendly hijab. It takes a little bit more time to get ready in the morning.

OLW: Digital Daily Planner 2015 Setup

Twenty Fifteen is the year where I want to go digital when it comes to daily planner. Since my One Little word for this year is CREATE and one of the things I want to improve is to create an organisation systems that works for me and this include organising daily planner for 2015.

I used to have a monthly and a daily planner that I carry with me where ever I go. I do have a digital calendar on my iPad but I still love to doodle and write in my planner. This year I am going to create a system that I can work with. 

digitalplannersetup-2015

Ever since I discovered how to setup digital Filofax Organiser with iPad, I get excited with the idea to writing, stamping and designing my planner digitally.

Tools that you need to go digital:

1. ipad
2. GoodNotes App (or any app that support annotation)
3. Stylus - I used Adonit JotTouch with PixelPoint and Adonit Jot Pro
4. PDF files of 2015 Daily Planner. I got mine from DigitallySpeaking.Net. You can used basically any pdf files to do this
5. Digital Elements - Since I am a digital scrapbooker, I have tons of digital elements at my disposal. You can get yours at digitallyspeaking.net or at any scrapbooking stores like TheLilypad, Gotta Pixel and SweetShoppe Designs.
6. Dropbox - online cloud storage to import your pdf files. GoodNotes also support Google Doc. Get your free dropbox and enjoy the cloud experience

My 2015 Digital Planner Setup


1. First a for most get yourself familiar with GoodNotes setup. Checkout this user guide to get started. 

2. After I bought 2015 Digital Daily Planner from DigitallySpeaking.Net, I upload all of the pdf files into my Dropbox folder.

3. In my GoodNotes app, I created a Category called 2015 Day Planner

4. While I'm in 2015 Day Planner, I choose Import and open my dropbox folder where I keep all of my pdf files. I click select and choose all twelves of the pdf files. GoodNotes will import all of the files into your 2015 Daily Planner Category.


01digitalplannersetup-2015

5. After you import all the files, your planner will look something like this. The daily planner does not come with the monthly calendar. You can either purchased them from the store, make your own or download them from a free printable available on the internet. I got mine from 2015 Life Planner by Traci Reed.

02digitalplannersetup-2015

Watched how to insert the January monthly page here. You can basically learn how to used the planner from this video.

6. When you are all set, you can do what ever you like with your page. You can add images, sticky notes, flags, washi tapes, stickers and many more. All of those images you can add into your digital page. 
When I started getting obsess with decorating my daily page, I hunt my old digital scrapbook stash for stickers, ribbons, flowers, staples, paper clips, washi tapes and many more. And I keep all of them in my dropbox folder for easy access.

These is how my digital planner looks like:

03digitalplannersetup-2015 04digitalplannersetup-2015 05digitalplannersetup-201506digitalplannersetup-2015
You can keep it simple or you can decorate them as much as you can.

07digitalplannersetup-2015

I have no idea that decorating my planner is going to be my obsession for 2015. Now I know why my previous system doesn't work. I love pretty things and making my daily planner pretty makes me want to look at them every single day. And decorating them has become one of my creative outlet. Love love this system.

If you want to learn more on how to setup your iPad Like a Traditional Filofax, Day Runner, Franklin Covey, Day Planner Organizer, I suggest you watch this video or even take her class.

And don't forget to get your dropbox for free and enjoy cloud storage.

Project Life Layouts [Week 03]

For Week three layouts I decided to do my layout using my computer. It has been a really long time since the last time I used my computer for making a project life layout. I used a freebies Starter Pack template and Kits from digitalprojectlife website and also Weekly Planner themed cards. Even when I used Adobe Photoshop to assemble these layouts, it is still a simple and fun project to work on. Love love the Project Life system.

Project 365 Week 03

I had such a hectic and unusual week. Week three turned out to be the most challenging and hectic week for me. Luckily I was able to handle it without too much trouble. I love that I am mature enough to deal with some difficult stuffs.

HERE IS MY WEEK IN PHOTOS

DAY 012- Today was the first day of school for my kids. Both of them are now in Secondary School and they study in the same school. I am not able to take the day off just because I have already taken too much personal leave and I am planning to have a long break sometime in February.

Day 012

DAY 013 - The day where I have to be  more than what I am expected to do. Looking good and feeling good is a must when you have to face to difficult challenges.

Day 013

DAY 014- Taking a little long lunch break to spend it with my beautiful and talented team. They have been working so hard and once in a while we love to go out, eat and play.

Day 014

DAY 015- Driving to work on a Thursday make me think about my #thursday3 project. Taking a selfie every week can be repetitive. I do need to change it up. I really need more ideas for selfie.

Day 015

DAY 016- Friday is definitely one of my favourite day of the week. I have like three meetings back to back and it can't tiresome when you have to think all day long. Having this photo book in my mailbox at work can be uplifting. Love holding my Volume 2 project life 2014 in my hand.
Day 016

DAY 017- We were at my hometown this weekend visiting my dad. If it's up to me I would rather have him stay with me. We were on our way to have lunch.
Day 017

DAY 018- Take a peak at my 2015 digital planner. I bought this digital planner from digitallyspeaking.net last year and so far I am having way too much fun decorating them digitally. I know I can make one myself but making  daily planner is a little bit time consuming for me. I might add a few pages like goals, weightless log and so on in between the daily pages. This is so far my current obsession for 2015.
Day 018
