Hey, missed me?

I like coffee. But not too often and not the strong kind. But love to sit down and have a little chat over coffee. It’s kind of nice, don’t you think? So I was thinking, I should always have a cup of coffee on the side while writing a new blog post but I then realized that I may have actually done just that every time I wrote a post! So I decided to make an illustration of it for my blog. It looks like this! 

I can’t believe that I ended up not blogging for a long while. I can’t remember the reason why I stopped at the time. But recently I updated my twitter bio and wrote “ [...] I do blog posts when I feel like it [...] “ made me realize how true that was. I guess that’s just me. I started blogging for many reasons and it’s not for show. I’ve always wanted my blog to be a place where I can visit myself and feel better. Meaning it’s supposed to be something positive, right?
 

Wrong.

 

My blog isn’t meant for positive things… It’s more than that. I am supposed to be true to myself and let everything out there. Even though others are visiting my blog. I ain’t here to serve but to share. And whoever do visit has a choice of liking it or not. At the end of the day I am only human who goes through good and bad things. And I believe that I am not the only one. It’s time for me to be more honest specially to myself.

 

Things may get more sensitive as it gets more personal. But this blog is my therapy. It’s not a place for anyone to judge how I feel, or what I do with my life. But feel free to comment whatever you wish. Even if it’s negative ~ I’ll take it as your way to express how you feel/think and even accept it.

 

Moving on. I’m gonna blog when I do feel like it. I appreciate the viewers that has been visiting even while I’ve been absent ~ warm hugs for you sweeties!

I’ve recently started making designs for Lizel. I continue whenever we are on the phone together. In the meantime, I’m working on my own things. I don’t think it will take long until my next post but I have already planned a bit for that so I believe it will be really soon. 

 
 

My Craft Smith Planner

For several years I've always wanted a Filofax type of planner and by that, I mean a 6 ring binder planner no matter what brand as long as I'm happy with it. Every year I would watch other people's planners and 90% of them would be this kind of planner. For some reason, I've always wanted to have one and clearly, I've had a while to decide before purchasing my first so I was pretty sure about this new way of planning. Believe it or not, I have never had so much done quicker since I started using this.

Now I ain't saying that everyone should use this because we all work differently. I must add that I envy those who can remember most things just in their heads! But most of us needs a planner to get things done. Some only use technology and it works fine for them. I've tried that and it's not perfectly suited for me. My phone dies and sometimes I miss the alarms for doctor appointments and such. That's a big no-no for me. Writing something down physically works better for me and my phone becomes a plus instead (just in case). But the difference (in my opinion) between a regular planner and a ring binder is that regular ones are limited. Maybe you're a sports type of person and you only want a planner specifically for that or just a regular one where you simply write down what you're supposed to do that day.
A ring binder is more of an unlimited type of planner. You can add whatever you want. Keep track on dates like a regular planner and add dividers for maybe meals, training or exams.

 

I LISTED DOWN ALL THE CONTENTS + A LIST OF WHAT I PURCHASED ALONG WITH MY PLANNER.

My Craft Smith planner isn't completed yet but for now, it contains:
» Regular Calendar where I write down my appointments when to publish a blog post and some post-its (the regular stuff).
» Task pages specifically for future blog posts
» Notes pages where I write down how I edit my photos and my own templates for Instagram and more.
» Regular task pages for random things I have to get done.
» Some notes pages for dayly+monthly+ weekly dues.
» A tiny note in the back for rules on how I organize things.
» Sticky-notes sits in the front pockets
» Important letter/s in the back.

 

» Craft Smith Planner
Secretarial pocket + 3 business card size pockets 1 + regular sized pocket + 1 notes pages pocket + 1 full sized pocket

1 – 6 ring planner + 3 tab dividers + 36 planning sheets

» Craft Smith 12 Month Calendar Pack
I bought this one specifically for the dividers, please don't judge! :)
Monthly and weekly view + 12-month tab divider + 1 acetate tab divider + 84 calendar sheets

 

» burde* Refill Calendar Kit Regent 2017

Bought a refill to replace the weekly sheets from the Craft Smith Calendar pack. This is because it already has the dates filled and I can't trust to do that myself without making a mistake and without knowing about it. It also includes all the national holidays which is important for me.

We've finally reached the end of this post! I must say it took me a while to keep this as simple but informative as possible. However, I enjoyed writing this post and I hope you liked it too! Let me know your thoughts in the comments. HUGS!

I planned another blog post for today but it ain't ready yet so this one will have to be the backup. Whenever I went through this type of situation it would always take me weeks or sometimes even a few months before I publish anything at all. Yes, I did think about making backup posts before but even the backups would feel not good enough. Now I've learned to remind myself that it is ok that things aren't always perfect.
