onigiri pouch~planner~sunshine award~happy fourth

I made an onigiri make-up pouch today. I used this lovely tutorial. 

The seaweed (black felt) at the top acts as a little clasp, it has Velcro attached to the back.

^-------It looks like this when you fold it over. -------^

Panda Boy, as I affectionately call one of my little brothers, helped me take a photo. It's funny, I actually had to seek him out and ask. Usually it's the other way around! He is growing up--he's turning five this year--and he doesn't tag along with me as much as he used to. Where did all the time go? *tear* 


I did a guest post over on Spread the Giggles. Basically, it was on my two planners, which one I preferred, my set-up, and little tips. I used a kawaii bubble tea plushie for it. Love how it turned out! :)

Lately I've been lovin' using my planners. One is  day-on-one paged, and the other is week-on-two paged. So fun to decorate my pages! You should really try paper planning if you haven't ;)

Now, for the Sunshine award!

To those American readers, Happy Fourth of July! We had a hold on the block parties and barbecues because of Hurricane Arthur. That's the reason why I'm on my laptop by the window...and I can see it's raining ;) If you're in North Carolina or close, please be safe! There, my little safety alert. ^-~

Yes, I love watching soccer ;)
