Hello 2015! I’m not the type of person who plans or think about what I’m going to do tomorrow. I’m more of a now person, this two weeks of vacation time due to the holiday season gave me time to think of what’s my next step with this hobby. I formally started Project Life-ing last year, and honestly I have a couple of months that I need catch up on. I have lots of ideas in my head and I can’t seem to translate them well on paper, so I decided to write them down and give myself a deadline.
Things that I am hoping to happen in 2015:
Blog more – though I actually am able to make lots of PL spreads in 2014, I wasn’t able to share those in my blog and Instagram. Hence my blog and IG feels so empty.
Scrappy Manila shop – I want my online shop to grow more. I am currently looking into making an online shop where people can place their orders. My current set up is through Viber or Facebook, for some reason a lot of people find it difficult to see which are currently on hand and which are not. I cannot wait to restock my shop!
Midnight Baker – aside from being a Project Lifer, I also am a cake decorator. For this 2015, I wish to have more cake orders and further enhanced my decorating skills.
I want to further enhanced my techniques and be able to teach what I love.
Be a Creative / Design Team (have absolutely no idea how to do this)
I would love to be invited to attend CHA (lol! so wishful thinking this one)
Projects that I need to finish by 2015 (hopefully!!):
Pastry School album – I really need to finish this one! I’ve started last year December and I scrapped everything and re did it for a couple of weeks and just set it aside unfinished!! I really had a great time in my stint in pastry school and I want to document it.
Project Life 2015 – last year 2014, I did it PL in a 2 – big ass 12×12 album and with my limited space and all. This year I’m planning to use Studio Calico’s 9 x 12 album, Studio Calico would probably release these after CHA 2015. So for now, armed with my iPhone, I take loads of picture and jot down my week in my planner.
Travel Album – I have atleast 2 in my mind that I want to make. Trying not to start on these until I finished my Pastry School album.
Hopefully, I get to accomplished 3-4 of these! Have a great year ahead!
Happy Holidays my scrappy readers! Taking a break from all the holiday merriment for the much-awaited Studio Calico reveal day! The January Studio Calico kit is called Far Far Away. It has a cutesy feel without being too kiddie like or too girly. I personally love it! I’m so glad I didn’t cancel my subscription. Cancel my SC subscription??? Well..that would be in another post. For now, I’m still a subber and still enjoying all the perks and let me continue gushing over this new release.
After days of non stop baking for my niece’s upcoming birthday, I decided to take a happy mail break. I quickly went to the post office to claim my mail. I was expecting my Kikki-K planner which was mailed months ago or maybe my Kelly Purkey Black Friday or maybe my Secret Santa mail came. When I saw the box it said Australia, I was thinking of my secret Santa is an Aussie. I quickly dropped by a milk tea shop with a wifi connection of course and open up my package.
I do most of my shopping in Studio Calico and other on-line stores. Don’t get me wrong, we do have a LSS here in Manila, I don’t frequent it very much because its very far and a bit complicated to go to with public transportation but when I do I shop like there’s no tomorrow! Lol! That is why when I do make an effort to go there, I see to it that its during one of their semi annual sale which is usually on May and November. Though they offer through phone or text orders sometimes its difficult and frustrating since “kuya” and “ate” are not that verse in the scrapbooking world but its bearable since they are very accommodating and helpful.
I love Studio Calico and dear readers I want to share the monthly inspiration that I get from them. If you join now till November 28 2014 using my referral link we would get triple points! hats $15 extra spending money which we could use for add-on kits purchases.
Mainly I’m working on my Project Life, though admittedly I’m weeks behind. I’m not panicking though, not yet anyway :p Aside from that I have loads of travel mini albums lined up that I need to create. Right now thought, I’m starting on the mini album from pastry school. I guess I just miss the friends I made there and working in a pastry kitchen. Mini Project – Scrappy Manila Scrappy Manila is born out of my OCDness. With my on going subscription to Studio Calico, my supplies of washi tapes are going like a weed! Instead of storing them in a box like some of my friends do, I found that when I don’t see them I don’t get to use them which is a pity. So with my washi rack, all my washis are on display and I get to use them most of the time! Moreover, they look pretty. Instead of keeping this amazing product all for me to enjoy, I am selling it though my Facebook page and instagram account. As many scrappers know, this hobby can sometimes lead to hoarding so as much as possible with my limited storage space, I try to de-stash and sell off some of the items that I don’t use or have no plans on using. I bet someone could find a better use for them! 😀 Continue reading “Inspiration Blog Hop!”
Today is the start of bundling time and 12 hours from now its presale time for Studio Calico subbers! Can you tell I’m super excited! One of the things I love about Studio Calico is the community, we like sharing what we got and what we missed. So those who are curious on what I got and will be getting for this August Studio Calico haul, here goes:
As a Studio Calicoreward member, my first purchase is this Mini Book Library class! It’s a collection of class that will be held every quarter throughout the year. I’ve been wanting to purchase this class since it was announced, I think it was early January this year. I was putting it off since I knew that I would be earning my star this year. It was so hard not to click that BUY button, but as a reward member I get to have 25% discount!!! How awesome is that!! The Mini Book Library is a collection of all the four classes from four amazingly talented ladies namely: Nicole Reaves, Maggie Holmes, Marcy Penner and Celine Navarro.
For my readers who are not a Studio Calico members, this simply means that I’ve been subbing with this awesome company for a year and I got a star in my avatar!!! Being a Reward member (star holder), simply means I get to enjoy subbing with Studio Calico more since I would be getting more subber “benefits” 🙂

I’m such an enabler , I know 🙂 It’s just such a good news that is too much to passed up on!
I’m a sort of OCD person; everything must have their proper place. I like buying organization materials like baskets, boxes and containers to house my every growing scrapbook supplies. I have tons of unused supplies mostly from last year’s Black Friday grab bags and Secret Santa exchange gifts. My tiny apartment is turning into crap room, I have boxes in every corner and it’s taking me a long time looking for the items that I want to use. I must do something to change this or else it takes the fun out of scrapbooking.
