Project Life 2014: Week 14

Sometimes, with a weekly Project Life format, I'll have weeks where I just didn't take a lot of photos. It's not because nothing's happening (although that's possible) but more so because a lot of things are happening - all at once. Project Life 2014: Week 14 • Organized! by Pam

Week Fourteen was one of those weeks that just flew right by me. Starting a new month is always a busy "me-time" for me. I wish I had taken more photos or jotted down more notes but sometimes, I just have to work with what I was able to document.

WEEK 14 CHALLENGE: Stitching

Stitching was one of those techniques that I've always wanted to incorporate in my layouts. I don't have a sewing machine and the patience to hand-sew anything so I've never done it before. This week, I challenged myself to incorporate "stitching" without actually sewing something ;)

It was Nico's birthday last April 1 and we celebrated by just eating out. Nothing too fancy, we're big homebodies, you see. Google launched a nice April Fools' Day "game" where we could catch Pokémons. I got a haircut. I missed Japan. I did an Instagram tag.

Told you this week just flew right by me.

I apologize about the glare in some of the photos. I still don't have a proper set-up when photographing my layouts and I still rely heavily on natural sunlight and my teeny-tiny bedroom window.

Stitching without sewing - nailed it. I used this wood veneer tag with stitch holes from Stitched class by Studio Calico. I just manually pushed the thread through the holes with my bare fingers.

We broke our last coffee maker so I haven't had home-brewed coffee in a while. I love how you can sort of 'fake' it with these drip coffee packs. I got this one from Muji. You just pour hot water over the filter and wait for all the caffeine goodness to drip into the cup.

I did a quick lettering on the word 'daily' with a 0.5 Project Life Journaling Pen. The card is from the Project Life Midnight Edition Core Kit. The tiny red alphas are a favorite of mine from Studio Calico.

I was browsing Etsy for printable planners that I can fully utilize and stumbled upon a gem! Kara-Anne's Legacy Planner, although not exactly what I needed, taught me a lot. Her blog was immediately one of my favorites after reading a blog post from her! So much inspiration from this woman, seriously.

We watched Hiroki Narimiya's Gyakuten Saiban, a movie adaptation for the popular game, Ace Attorney. This was one of those game / manga-turned-movie that did things right. The characters were well-played, set + costumes + special effects were spot on - everything was just right! Of course, we had to snack on homemade SPAM musubis while watching ;)

The dark grey chipboard alphas are from Studio Calico. The gold foil chipboard shape is from the Studio Calico Sugar Rush Project Life Kit.

I got a haircut after 1231964628 months. I sported a short, short haircut in my first two years of University. After that, I decided to grow my hair. Now that I'm back to having short-ish hair, my head feels so much lighter! And breezier. (Is that even a word?)

I found the perfect card from the Studio Calico Blue Note Project Life Kit. All it needs is a little bit of handwritten word with a Copic Sketch marker and a hollow star wood veneer.

I love how nice this Week in Review card turned out! And the best part? It was so simple. I just adhered a strip of wood veneer tape and wrote on it with a white Uni-ball pen. Quick and easy! Just how I like it.

One of my hairspiration + fashion-inspiration of all time is Tricia Gosingtian. Seriously, this woman can pull off any hair style / color. Always inspired by her!
