Craftspace Weekend : Week 40

Craftspace Weekend : Week40

 

This week I didn’t make any craft or draw anything on my weekend but I have done a lot of tasks related to my blog. My intention for this month is to choose myself. I spent most time reading and working on Live off your passion ecourse by Scott Dinsmore. I’m now at module 2 from 10 modules and there are a lot of a-ha moment about myself. I learn WHY I love making craft especially notebook. I learn about my values and skills I do best.  It was a good and quiet weekend with myself.

So how was your weekend?

Craftspace Weekend : Week 39

In case you’re new here, Craftspace Weekend is a blog series I share what I have made on my weekend or how is my creative space. Since I usually work on my creative project on my weekend so I call it “Craftspace Weekend”. I have started Craftspace Weekend since april but I have not updated on English blog much. You can check out the past Craftspace Weekend in Thai here.

This week I was frustrated by my key that made scratches all over stuff in my purse especially my glasses. So I decided to sew a key cover from fabric I have left. It took only 15 minutes to make which is a bit surprise me because I was trying to make once but never finished it. I think creating drawing habit teach me to let go of perfection help me focus more on getting it done.

Craftspace Weekend : Week 39

I love and inspired by goal setting. I set a daily goal, weekly goal, yearly goal and whatever goal I could think of. However, I didn’t achieve every goal especially a big goal. Last couple years, I read books and blogs about goal settings. And I found that goal that I set should be a goal that truly important to me. Many times I set goal that I think it’s good because someone say so but it’s not what I actually care about.

Last week I watched Chris Guillebeau’s interview about his book “The Happiness of pursuit” story of quest and this interview inspire me to set a big goal again. This time will be a goal that I totally care about. As I always blog and reading about DIY and craft so I think my big goal should be somethings related to this. I kept that thought with me for a week to test if I still excited about it.

Then I saw Sabine’s post about her #365craftingtime challenge to create something every day for a year. I love this idea so much but I know from my experience creating habit of creating or drawing something everyday is very pressure for me especially when I spend 9 hours for my day job, 2 hours in traffic and also keeping habit of sketching a day. So I decide to make 100 DIY projects in a year. That means I don’t have to do one project in a day and I would focus more on 100 projects which I think it’s less pressure for me.

I will document them on my blog and my instagram with #100DIYprojects.

And yes, this key cover is counted as first DIY projects.

This weekend I went to Phuket with a rule to do nothing but relaxing since I was so overwhelm and need to clear my mind. Traveling to somewhere else always is the best way to clear my mind. Today I will show you some of photos from this trip. I’ll share more about this trip later. Stay tune!

I took day off on Friday to go to Nakhon Pathom and sign paper for my brother. I didn’t want to go at first but then I realised that instead of doing a business and go back home, I should visit popular place and explore this city a little bit so it’s one day trip with my mom not business trip.

Craftspace Weekend : week 36

We went to Phra Pathom Chedi, the tallest stupa in Thailand. We found my mom’s favourite flower. I don’t know how it called in English, I think it’s called Gardenia. However, we called Dok Put (ดอกพุด) in Thai.

On Saturday, I feel excited with Acrylic color I just bought so I cut plastic bag and use it as a canvas. Here is my first abstract art I did. I show it to my boyfriend and his said “What’s that? You did a mess again?” I feel so bad with his word but I learnt that although my work is not beautiful at all, I still enjoy painting and making art. Most important I still love my work.

Craftspace Weekend : week 36

 

On Sunday, I was thinking about what to do with my work. I did some research and found a lot of tutorial on how to fuse plastic. I followed instruction and here is what I got! I think I will use it as a notebook cover so I sewed and cut it to A5. Unfortunately, I didn’t have enough paper it make notebook but I will do it for sure. I may use it as travel journal for Phuket trip next week or art journal this month.

I also test fabric colour to paint this bag. I was not sure what to draw so I just painted something as it’s art journal.

I feel relax and peaceful so much when I paint. I think now I know why people said that art is therapy.

This week I’m overwhelmed by works and personal project that I would like to do in little time. I didn’t draw for 3 days but I did some creative work everyday. I learn one thing that making habit to do something everyday need good time & energy management too. If I draw, I’ll go to bed at mid night and wake up at 6 am which is not a good for me. I know my body clock. I know that I need to go to bed at 10pm. And it’s so tried when I’m not. I need to be better on managing my time to create this habit. I don’t know how but I know I can do it. Craftspace Weekend : Week 35 However, I decided to take a rest on this weekend by reading some books and go to bookstore (my fav activity). This time I can’t resist to buy “Think Happy, Be Happy” book. I was not even know what this book is about when I bought it. This book is full of beautiful hand lettering from many artists in very good price 300THB (10$). It’s so pleasure to spend time go through this book.

This week I got 2 postcards. One from Germany and another one from England. I would love to go there both myself!

Craftspace Weekend : Week 34

I feel overwhelm by things I would like to do and need to do so I wrote all down no matter how small it is. This way help me focus on what I need to do NOW instead of what I need to do next.

Craftspace Weekend : Week 34

I found that my Kindle got scratch. I think I got it when I put my Kindle on my bag. It’s very small but I’m afraid that I’m going to get more. So I made a cover for it. I still need to attach velcro to keep nicely.

Craftspace Weekend : Week 34

I also made wire straps from fabric and Washi tape.

Craftspace Weekend : Week 34

This week I started drawing and painting on postcards. I started by painting landscape and then I did some hand lettering since I take hand lettering e-course on Skillshare. It turned out very nice. I love all my works. It’s fun to writing an positive words that I hope whoever see them will be inspiring and feel good with life.

Craftspace Weekend : Week 34

Every week I  share about my creative space I always feel surprise with what I have done each week. I always thought that I did nothing and I should do more. But I can list a lot of things each weeks and it seem to be longer on every time I listed too. So I would like to encourage you all to document what you have done each week. You don’t have to post publicly on blog. You can start by posted on your Facebook or just write them down on your notebook if you don’t want to share. Just start record it.

This month I’ve started “Drawing a day” to build habit of drawing everyday. I’m so happy that I can keep doing this project for almost two weeks now. I’ll write more about this project later.

Craftspace Weekend : week33

It’s a long weekend here in Thailand because August 12 is Mother’s day. Most company including my company closed on August 11 too. That made 4-day long for holiday. I didn’t have any plan until Friday night. I draw 4 box on my notebook for each day to list all I have or want to do. It become a long list than I think but I still be able to manage to do most of them.

Craftspace Weekend : week33

At first, my plan on Saturday is to learn how to cook at Dome’s apartment but I have to go to bank and Dome need to buy kitchen ware for his apartment. So we decide to go to department store first then go back to his apartment. And we cook for first time ever. We did cheese toast, chicken steak and chicken fried. Then we watch “The pursuit of happiness” and “The bucket list” while we ate our delicious food. I enjoy today so much although we was so tried  since we need to clean up apartment too!

When I got back home, I found a very happy mail from Elise was arrived. She packed her postcards nicely. Her postcards are so amazing like her. Next time I will order 2 packs so I can keep one for myself and another for sending to my friend.

Craftspace Weekend : week33

On Sunday, I spent most time making Fauxdori, the Midori traveller’s notebook style. It’s fun to design and improve what you actually use. I’ll share you about Fauxdori I made later. You will see changes on every notebook.

Craftspace Weekend : week33

My intention on Monday is to go to a park and spend time on bookstore in the afternoon for my Artist’s date. But I need to see Dome to get new keyboard so I changed plan by spending less time in both place

Craftspace Weekend : week33

I sketched landscape for first time. I drew landscape a lot when I was in art school but I was terrible at it. I always got C from my landscape drawing. I never have confident to draw it again until I finished my sketch this time. I have fun sketching it and want to do more.

So when I met Dome, we went to have a foot massage. I sketched a women do massage for me too.

Craftspace Weekend : week33

I went to bookstore and spent couple of hours. Since I have a rule not to buy any book before I read all books I have, I took photos of them and saved it to my wish list. 1000 Artist Journal Pages is the first book I will buy.
