iPhone/iPad Apps I Love

So recently, I’ve been blessed to come into the possession of an iPad mini. I’m loving it, especially for it’s portability (as compared to a laptop)! Of course, my laptop still stores all my to-die-for information and I couldn’t live without it. However, I have found a number of amazing FREE apps for my mini and would like to share them.

  1. Pinterest – I have been using the website to gather inspiration and keep track of ideas that I come across online. So, the app helps improve my convenience by allowing me to keep track of these wonderful ideas on the go.
  2. Brit + Co. – I really love this site and their app version helps me stay updated with their latest posts.
  3. Evernote – I believe it’s a little slow of me, but I have only just discovered this app. So I’m still learning it’s uses, but so far, it’s been been very helpful for my note taking.
  4. Penultimate – this app allows you to draw, write and scribble on. So basically, you can just doodle on it while your creative juices are flowing. When typing on the mini isn’t ideal for what I have in mind, this app has served me really well!
  5. Studio Design – I only stumbled upon this app on Tuesday night through the recommendation by The House That Lars Built. And I think it has a pretty amazing concept, it’s like a basic photoshop for the phone! I’m really addicted to it and have created 9 designs so far!

So, these are the apps that I’ve been using and really like. If you have come across other apps that might not be that well known, but really useful to you, please feel free to share them with me! I hope these 5 apps will serve you as well as it did me! Enjoy! ((:

New Beginning

I’ve finally decided to step out of my comfort zone and start documenting my craft journey. I’ve been procrastinating about publishing them online cause it felt like I’m putting part of me out there for the world to judge. Until a couple months back, I stumbled upon a paper craft book in the library (I don’t remember the title anymore), and it mentioned about profiting from your hobbies and things like that. I don’t think I’m ready to go into such a big scale kind of thing but it got me to re-think about taking the first step and documenting all the things I’ve done. And so, perhaps I should just take that leap.

Doing things from scratch has always given me a sense of accomplish when the final product is done, be it baking or paper crafting. My sister often comment about how weird I am cause I found it therapeutic doing things like that. No matter how busy my schedule is or how tight the deadlines are, hand making things have been a form of stress relief for me.

I started out my paper craft journey from Christmas cards. Christmas means a lot to me, partly because I’m a Christian, also cause it’s such a happy season. But anyways, I got more interested in doing such crafts that I made scrap books for my friends and small  gifts during events like Valentine’s Day. I found joy not only from doing these crafts, but to be able to give them to my dearest friends. And so now, I embark onto the journey of documenting all these love gifts! HAHA! Hope I’ll have the perseverance to keep it up.
