“Wake me up when September ends…”
My golly! Tomorrow is the start of the Holiday countdown back home. Can’t imagine that the next months will be bery ber – LOL! So dear friends, update your desktop wall paper and download Shabby Princess’ free here. The theme is about school – I guess, it’s the start of the school year in some regions already.
But since both of my girls are still not yet in school, might as well put a photo for my family. The photo was just a snap shot goofing around with Papa.
Most of you probably saw the movie “Something Borrowed” which is based on the novel written by Emily Giffin. I’ve read the book, thanks to ate Kaje for the recommendation. While watching, I noticed the shoes that Rachel was wearing when Darcy was confessing to her about her affair with Marcus and her pregnancy.
Yipee! We have the same shoes. Actually, this was from Aldo – one of my favorite shoes. It’s comfortable, and it was on sale when I bought it too.
Another thing that I noticed from the said movie was this. Notice something blue from this picture?
Yeah, that’s “Something Blue” alright. The sequel to this movie. I can’t wait for it. Because I love Ethan’s character.
I don’t know if I’m just plain stupid or I just really ignore the days. I feel like it’s just Wednesday. Gosh! Anyway, it’s time for another FFI.
1. How in the world did I forget about the days in the week?
2. My laptop is in front of me (as we speak)
3. Life’s unpredictable. You might be in my shoes someday, and I might be in yours.
4. We plan to have a picnic lunch once FIL arrives for a short vacation.
5. That was where we were?
6. “Twitter” I think of as "our place" (speaking as a Bebot)
7. And as for the weekend, tonight I’m looking forward to spend some quality time with Hubby, tomorrow my plans include a little time to scrap and Sunday, I want to blog hop!
We’re almost at the end of August. Time flies so fast, I’m so happy that Ramadan is near it’s end. Eid Holidays is just around the corner. We’re hoping that FIL can come home to celebrate with us. The girls will be so glad to see him. I miss my SIL’s as well. And we’re really hoping to get along together soon.
By the way, my SIL who’s pregnant will have a baby boy. She’ s due 2nd week of January 2012. We can’t wait to meet the new bundle of joy. Anyway, that’s it for the mean time. I need to review this collision estimation that my friend is talking about. Ciao for now.
And so, the final set up is here. Suzanne shared me some ideas on how to organized my kits. She gave me this link from Daily Digi and she’s using Katie’s system. Mine on the other hand is used to arrange my kits by store. Ever since I started to scrap, I subscribed form their news letter. Some shops give out a free whole kit once a week, so each time I download these files, it will be easy for me to easily drag and drop them off each assigned folder. I don’t delete TOUs and some additional notes inside the kit so it’s easy for me to credit the designers itself.
This is what’s inside my Digi scrap folder right now. The black folder are kits and while the beige folder are for templates.
If you click on one folder kit, this is what it will look like:
This is a folder full of kits from Digital Crea. Thank God for freebies!
Now I’m inspired to scrap since everything looks so organized. I would like to quote what Katie said on her post:
Finally, I want to emphasize that there is no “right’ or “wrong” way to organize your supplies. Spend some time thinking what your digital scrapbooking process is and what kind of workflow you prefer. It’s important to set up a system that is easy to maintain so you don’t have to spend all your creative time filing supplies. The goal is to find what you are looking and get to the fun part of creating!
There you go fellow scrappers. Go ahead and organized yours. See what system will work for you.
I’m currently organizing my folder kits. I thank my Hubby for teaching me how to customized my folder icons. He has this software that changes pictures to an icon format. Now I can easily identify which kits I have and the names of the designers. I already customized the first 3 folders, and I still have a lot of folders to do. As you can see, I organized them by kits, then my templates.
And for each sub folder, thanks to Suzanne for the tips. I can easily preview the kits. I honestly can say that I’m an “OC” for the first time
Since there is nothing else to do (for now), might as well be busy with this. Thanks again Sweety for helping out.
I tweeted like a month ago I think that Julia’s potty trained already. However, we still have to keep her on diaper at night. Though in her nap time in the afternoon, she don’t pee at all. I guess, deep sleep comes at bed time. I’m so glad that she can be instructed easily to inform us if she wants to go. Look at the graph below. So proud that she’s in line with the 2.5 years fully potty trained.
I hope that the technique I used to train Julia will also apply with her baby sister Julie once she reach this age.
