Blogging is fun, but it could get a little overwhelming sometimes. Most of the time, blogging is not someone’s full time job (only a few lucky ones get to do that *sob*). So when you’re still balancing between blogging and doing your full time job, it helps to plan your blog posts in advance.

I have created for you a Printable Weekly Blog Planner. It’s a pretty straight forward planner where you put the date, posts that you’ve planned for each day of the week, and your to-do list (anyone you need to contact? any DIY you need to create? any products you need to photograph?). For each day when your post is up, you’ll also get a reminder to share it on three main social medias: facebook, twitter & pinterest.

With this blog planner, your blogging will be more organized and fun! I am also using it for my own blog too :)

D.I.Y Pocket Book with Printable Covers | DESIGN IS YAY!

I’m a note-aholic. I have a collection of notebooks in different sizes, materials and thickness. Sometimes I feel guilty when I buy yet another notebook or notepad. But just like a shopaholic, I couldn’t stop. The weird thing is sometimes I don’t really use them. When I’m feeling like everything around me is so bland and boring, I like to look through my pile of notebooks and notepads. They make me feel happy.

My favourite type of notebook is the pocket book. They are cute and easy to bring around. I made three printable pocket book covers for your own D.I.Y Pocket Book. It’s very easy!

Valentine's Day Printable  Animal Card | DESIGN IS YAY!

I created three animal cards for your Valentine’s. A bunny, a bear and something that reminds me of Pokemon. I also created two pattern squares that you can make origami hearts with!

Write your message at the back of the square, so that it’s going to be inside the origami heart.

I found this video on youtube that gives crystal clear guide on how to make origami heart. If you don’t know how to make one, I recommend you watching the video.

Carefully cut the dash lines on the cards to make slots for the origami hearts.

Ta-DA! Slip in the origami heart with your secret message in it. These cards are no larger than 14.8cm in height, so they will fit nicely inside a C6 envelope. Or they make a nice display too!

By the way for this post, I am using my iPhone 5 camera for the photos. I think they look pretty good for a mobile phone camera, don’t you think?

I am back!

Finally after one month hiatus, this blog is up and running again (do you notice the new design?). According to Google Analytics, there is nothing you guys love more than printable. So I’d like to start 2014 with a new freebie!

On the 31st of January this year, we are celebrating Chinese New Year. In our culture, we have to give red packets (also known as hong baos) to young & single boys and girls. I feel the need to say “YOUNG” because it’s kind of weird if I have to give my 30-year-old single friends red packets :P

However, since Valentine’s day is also around the corner, I’d like to make this printable useful for both occasions. I feel like the theme shabby chic is a good fit. After all, I have done the “red and bold” packets last year.

Even though Hong Baos are supposed to mean Red Packets, but with all the cute and colourful envelopes out there, they don’t have to be red anymore. However, dark colours such as black or navy blue will be frowned upon, because in Chinese culture they are symbol of bad luck. 2014 is year of the horse, and it is supposed to be a great year for those who were born in the year of tiger (and horse, of course)… such as me! That is why I am embracing this year with open arms. I know this might sound baloney, but I actually still believe in these stuff. After all, there’s nothing bad in putting a little positive spin into our life.
