"May 8, 2013 Project Life" for Sunny Side Up Creations

Going back to Project Life layout for Sunny Side Up Creation's Word Challenge with Word - SILLY. =)

I'm really delayed in my Project Life project and when the time comes that I have a clear idea on how to go about continuing from June 2013 to Present, it will surely be a lot of work that I need a lot of time in my hands to do everything specially since I'm going on a daily Project Life or what the others call Project Life 365. . .  and not a weekly PL in one spread like most are busy with.  {sigh}  I wish I went on the modern way of Project Life.  Well, it's still modern as the May 8th portion I'm showing you is a digital day PL layout. =)

Here it is:

I know every material that one sees can be utilized for craft projects.  But the day I set eyes on this printed and embossed pack or rolls of tissue paper, it was totally crazy. . .  As I needed the pack for my personal hygiene and couldn't even think or afford to spare a roll to experiment with in my crafting projects.  Well, I guess, that will be the day!! :p

Much Regards,

. . . postcards had finally arrived

I would like to share with you the postcards that I've been waiting for since August or was it September 2013.  These were from a direct swap at from a postcard swap or trader from Russia.  It had been a long process of communication from receiving the Russian group's invite for a swap/trade to choosing among their catalogue and the waiting, of course!  I tracked the postcards and had lost hope when I saw that these went to Japan.  And honestly, I was surprised the postcards did arrive days after Typhoon Yolanda / Haiyan had hit my country.  

Here's sharing the photo of the set of Russian postcards from Vlad Kokorin (tisse):

I've sent my postcards to them which is my part of the postcard swap / trade, a day or 2 upon receipt of the above postcards.


Here are postcards, I've recieved yesterday - Nov. 19, 2013:

these are postcards from:
  • HongKong (a painting on a postcard); 
  • Finland (a view of an artwork featuring all wood on a postcard . . . this makes me miss my wood grain scrapbook paper which I had with me since a year or so which came from the US - I wonder where that 1 wood grain scrapbook pattern paper went too); and 
  • Sweden (a handmade postcard).
