Weekend Wanderings

January has been a good month for reflecting, regrouping a bit and preparing for the rest of the year.

Here are some things for the weekend:

I really like how Simone from http://www.seemownay.de/ set up her Midori Travelers Notebook.

Bullet Journal // I think I’ve linked to this before. A planner system created by Ryder Carroll.  So I’ve thought about it for some time and keep coming back to it. I’m trying to use what I have versus buying more. The most success I’ve had with planners is when I just use a plain notebook and customize it, so I may have more success with this system. After seeing this detailed post by Cerries Mooney here: A Complete {Illustrated} Guide to Bullet Journalling, it convinced me more that this would work for me. I started by grabbing a notebook I have and started my foundation pages. I figure I can start for the month of February and see how it goes. The notebook I have is not large enough for the whole year, but I figure I will see if its something that works for me in practice before purchasing any other notebooks.

I’m joining the 30 Day Coloring Challenge at The Daily Marker for the month of February. I am mostly working in my The Time Garden coloring book I received for Christmas. I am using a cheap set of water color pencils, but with no water. I may also take this opportunity to stamp & color again. I have some awesome images from when I was more into card making and thinking it would be fun to prep some for cards again. I have to refresh on what types of inks/markers coordinate best.

I’m excited to attend another Winter Market with Clover Market. I’ve been attending this market for a few years now and always come away with some great finds and lots of inspiration. If you are in the Philadelphia area, definitely check it out!

Jennifer McGuire’s latest video of crafty talk was very informative. I was curious about the Misti tool which she shared. Not too mention having her adorable puppy on air!

Ok so I’m not buying as much – but I think am in the market for a Fuse tool. Since I’ve converted to 8.5×11 for 2016, I am thinking it could be useful in cutting down some of my 12×12 page protectors. Anyone have a review of the Fuse? What deals are out there? It seems like purchasing in a store with a coupon may be best bet.

My December Documented album was completed last weekend and I shot a video of the finished product. Hoping to link up my YouTube channel soon. As I was finishing up I found a few photos I didn’t print up yet or couldn’t really fit into the stories I recorded, but wanted to include them anyway. The simplest solution was to create mini collages on 4×6 layouts (I used the PicStitch app) to slip into page protectors at the end of the album. A quick, easy time-saver.

Mini collages for December Documented Album

I was able to get some photos printed up last night, so I will be working on the first few layouts for my 2016 album. How is your 2016 project planning coming along?

  1. Boho Berry is another great resource for Bullet Journaling. I’ve done some brief project planning using the Simple Scrapper planner and the January Refresh event. Definitely helpful to have deadlines for planning. Haha…
