Lack of January posts and the February Theme


Oh my, January is almost over! Where did the time go?!

I had planned to do a ‘photographic’ inventory post this month, but somehow I never got around to it. I will still be writing it, but I expect it somewhere in February.

I’m still learning this whole blogging thing, and my posting habit of 2017 has not been well, I'm sorry about that!

On another note, the ‘theme’ for February March is ‘colored pencils’! I’m a total addict and have loads of colored pencils from various brands.
If you’re wondering about anything pencil-related, please leave a comment or email! I’ll do my best to answer your questions :)

 

Colorful regards,

How to organize your craft supplies


How do you organize and store your craft supplies?

First of all, let’s talk a bit about organizing. It is nothing more than implementing a system, or set of habits, which makes life easier for you (and usually less messy!)

This post is meant to give you some ideas as to how you can organize your items.
So let's dig in... :)

Happy New Year!


Welcome 2017! A new year a new beginning!

 

It’s time for those new year resolutions!
While any time in the year is a good day to start, somehow the turn of a year makes us all want to better ourselves in some aspects of our lives. Apparently, about 90% of people fall of their resolution wagon within a few weeks.. Not a positive thought, isn’t it?

I guess we all get overwhelmed with a temporary enthusiasm, only to have it wane in the face of real life. So start small, and build new habits slowly! Want to exercise more after not doing anything for months? Start with a daily 10 minute walk at a convenient time, like after dinner, instead of forcing yourself to go to the gym every day. It’s the small habits that really work.
