Create: February on Paper

Mar 3, 2017 | Create

February was a good month for my creative process. I got back into journaling and watercolors, took more photos for the fun of it, and challenged myself to #MakeSomething everyday. I’m essentially rekindling my childhood passion for all things analog and DIY.

I found out about the Traveler’s Notebook and Bullet Journal planner systems late last year and thought it was so clever. I made my own notebooks with recycled paper and magazines then purchased this fauxdori TN on Etsy. Needless to say, I’ve been geeking out real hard over this.

So why do I like this type of planning and journaling? I could very easily use the notes app on my phone–which, let’s be real, is more convenient and is way less time consuming. I do it because I’m visual spatial. You know how some people say “if you want to remember something, write it down”? That’s definitely true for me. I am much better at making sense of things when I can see it and feel it. Physically writing things down forces me to think about what I’m doing, and how I’m going to do it.

DIY notebooks out of regular printer paper and magazine pages. I don’t have a laminator so I ghetto rig it together with packaging tape. I’ve made a bunch already but I’ve been giving them to friends whenever they come over.

SESSIONS: Suli Sataua Slays Prom 2017

Suli Sataua slayed in her prom dress! Her senior prom theme: fire and ice. But no doubt, when she mixes the two, she is FIERCE. I was excited and nervous for this session. But Suli was wonderful! She killed it in front of my lens and was really fun to take photos of!

15 MAY 2017 I love long weekend getaways. These little trips are lifesavers. I’ve booked my tickets for a long weekend adventure, island hopping to Samoa. It’s still a couple of weeks away, but I haven’t been back there since last year, so I’m excited to go and eat...
