Life Mapping

Doodle with Month-On-1-Page

I love paper planners and like to watch and chat with people who have the same passion. I admire how Tracy crazysuburbanmom filled her monthly calendar cell with pretty water colors (click here). Because I still need my  full month calendar for planning, I designed a month-on-one-page to do daily cell drawing.   The page is undated an plain so you can decorate it by yourself.

Week 11,12 – Re-arrange your inserts for Planning – Life Mapping Weekly Chit Chat

When we talk about using LM inserts v02.1 for planning, most of you will mention the Charts. Yes it is an effective tool which I am using everyday for planning and tracking. My Monthly Chart (Mar) You can use the monthly chart to track hourly routines too. Use Yearly Chart to track weight, etc. Recently, Joshua has highlighted an issue when he was trying to set up v02.1 for work and projects which the arrangement of the pages will make the Monthly chart visually block the daily pages.

Week 5 – Planning & Searching – Life Mapping Weekly Chit Chat

In Week 5 of 2014, I've started planning my Feb ~ Here is the pre-planed Feb Monthly Calendar~ You may noticed that I was no longer using MarkIt Dots but draw Squares to mark my events.

Who knows. Another thing I would like to feature in this week's Chit Chat is how I make my records searchable. I did quite a lot of testings and found that the method below suits me quite...

Week 3– Color Coding & Index – Life Mapping Weekly Chit Chat

My January Calendar is now very crowded . I plan, I record, but these do not mean I wanna everything to be searchable in future. Normally I would like only my important events, kids' milestones, book/movie reviews to be searchable.  So I use color coding & Index Page Marker , with which I am able to write wherever I like on the inserts. Then I will put my color code beside those special notes/to-dos/journal, and fill that color code in the side bar. Purple in my color code stands for my hobbies. I watched "Awakening" on 17 Jan. To make this searchable, I draw a purple icon...

Week 52– Life Mapping Weekly Chit Chat

In this holiday season, my Week 52 was so busy and happy. Lots of family activities. I was busy with my projects on Christmas Eve and I didn't even have time to complete my journal for that day before Christmas.

I use iPhone to take photos and record those lovely moments. I like to draw. I use PILOT Color ENO mechanic pencil (0.7) to do coloring. Sometime I will stick the movie tickets in my daily journal...
