While I realize that it is now March but I’ve been meaning to do this post for a while and well life just sort of got in the way.
So let’s talk about the projects I have planned for 2016. I decided to keep things a little simple and I only really have three projects that I’ll be having throughout the year but of course there may be little ones now and again.
Each of my projects would fall into different categories:
Let’s talk about my planner project first. I’m just using one planner this year and that’s my Pelledori Traveler’s Notebook. I’ll go into more detail on what’s in my Pelledori in another post. For now I’ll just talk about the planner insert I carry in it. I made my own insert because I wanted a double spread that had a week to a page view on one side and a dot page on the other which I could use for notes or whatever. On the schedule side, I keep track of appointments and bullet points on what I did during the day – this helps me to remember for when I work on my other two projects.
Next is my scrapbook project, and that would be Project Life 2016. I started out with a good plan last year but yet again didn’t complete it as I just didn’t have time thanks to other things going on in my life. This year I’ve decided to go digital and use the Project Life app on my ipad/iphone. I think this will probably work out best for me and I haven’t quite decided whether to wait till the end and then have it printed as a photobook or have each layout printed so that I could put it in my own albums (which I have a few waiting to be used lol). The advantage of using the app is I do my scrapbooking anywhere and everywhere. I can work on my PL during my commute to and from the office, during my lunch break or if I’m waiting for someone somewhere lol.
My last main project for the year is a journal project. This is actually something I’ve been wanting to do for a while now. It’s sort of like a year long letter/journal for my bestie. You see my bestie lives in the US while I live in Singapore and we usually don’t get to see each other maybe once every two or three years. Either during her visits here (she still has family here) or when I visit her there (which tends to be at least for like 4 weeks hehehe). Sure we Whatsapp one another on a regular basis and follow each other on Instagram but there are just some things that I would want to just share with her privately and the best way for that is a letter. I have another post on it on how I lay it out.
So those are my three projects for 2016.
