Doodles by Catherina Amor

This doodle piece was inspired by all that Kawaii stationery I see all over the place. Kawaii is cute in Japanese. This includes me (in the middle), my husband Dan & my, a lot of things I do and love! Like watching TV, music, coffee, cakes, donuts, computers, plus other bits and pieces.

My First Erin Condren Planner!

I've been eagerly waiting for my new Erin Condren planner to arrive since receiving the message saying it's been shipped off! Fedex actually came here on Friday - the 13th! (dun dun dahhh) ... but I was out! I only went to the Post Office for a few minutes and that's when they decided to deliver it. Anyway, nobody was home so they just left a note saying they will come back on Monday to drop it off (which is today). It didn't come until after 5pm!! Talk about anticipation!!!

 Well, it's finally here and this planner is truly awesome! A bit smaller than what I imagined but everything seems to be in order. The cover is bright and beautiful and I love that they included some nice stickers with it. At least, I can sleep better tonight - now that it's here!

Pop Music Doodles

I used to doodle all the time when I was in high school - the edges of my notebooks were usually filled with all kinds of patterns and doodles. These days, I rarely draw! So, I thought I would do this piece just to I know that I can still do it. I love pop music and have thought about compiling something like this for ages! So here is my pop music doodles.

2015 Weekly Planner Inserts

Designed my own weekly planner inserts for my recently purchased Kikki K A5 planner. It didn't include any weekly pages, so I decided to create my own. Each month starts on its own and begins with a monthly calendar. I made it so the numbers were on the outer edge of each page, for easy viewing when you're searching for a particular date. I also added quotes throughout the pages. Very happy with the result and I made it available for a limited time in my Etsy shop Pop Mix - printed and hole punched!

First Planner Group Stationary Swap

I recently joined several Planner related Facebook Groups and one of them had a Stationery Swap event, so I thought I'd participate to see what it's about. It's in the Planner Addicts Australia group and my swap partner from NSW collected some cute and interesting things for me. Got the package today! Nice!

Ebook Cover Design

My husband has been writing some short stories and he decided to publish them in Amazon as a Kindle ebook, mostly for copyright purposes. He asked if he could use one of my paintings for the cover of his black comedy  "Christmas Street" and this is the result. We're both quite happy with how it turned out!

My Creative Workspace

Workspace starting to get too messy. Clutter was starting to pile up, so I decided to get organized using cheap (but lovely) containers.
Creative Desk Space Organization
Where to get bargain containers, stationery and other bits and pieces:

• Daiso
• Typo
• Bargain City
• Office Works
• Stacks
• Reject Shop
• Crazy Clarks

 .... plus, other dollar stores!
Creative Desk Space
One thing I noticed about shopping in bargain stores is that a lot of these items are often limited. Some are regulars, but most of the time, they sell it for a little while, then once it's gone, that's it! You won't see them again and you miss out! So moral of the story, buy if it looks like limited edition.
