Week 13,14,15 – MTN Booklets with pages in Bookbinding order – Life Mapping Weekly Chit Chat

I have designed a set of booklets for MTN (Midori Traveler's Notebook) regular size. Each booklet has 4 months and each month has month at a glance, monthly checklist, week at a glance, to do pages, note pages etc. The page order for booklet is very different from the page order for loose leaf inserts. For example, the page 1 will go together with page 2 for loose leaf inserts but you will find the 1st page will be joined together with the last page in bookbinding order for booklet. Here is the illustration of the page orders for loose leaf inserts and for booklet.   The...

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. This is because, Draw squares are more easier and time saving than locate the MarkIt Dots with the color I want, peel it off and stick it on my calendar; I worried that the MarkIt dots will drop after years. 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. My boy brightened my day with his Lego creations - the Peashooter from one of my favorite game "Plants vs Zombies" and a Lady Bug. I love his works so much. 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...
