A journal slash datebook for the dreamers who want to change the world and keep track of their everyday adventures while they’re at it.
Hello everyone! I’m blogging right smack in the middle of wedding season and looking back on the year that was 2013 with nothing but love. Last year was a pretty tough act to follow! I still can’t believe I got to share my passion for customising planners with a lot of people, here and abroad. The Daykeeper was born out of my love for pretty photographs, writing and doodling. I’ve always been one to keep datebooks, but I could never really find one that suited me- something that could hold my musings and daydreams and at the same time keep track of my somewhat erratic schedule. So I thought, why not make a product that I really believed in, a product that I’d personally like to use? I’ve been really blessed to find a lot of like-minded people in my clients, people who share my scrapbook keeping/journal-writing/power-planning sentiments. Some of them have become online friends, whose encouraging words have really inspired me to just do even more creative work. I’m also pretty privileged to have had the support of such amazing people- bloggers like Patty Laurel, the Googlygooeys, Cat Juan and the wonderful people up at Heima, to name a few! I really couldn’t thank everyone enough. I’m so encouraged by the overwhelmingly awesome response to this little labor of love and I can only pray that God uses the Daykeeper in a way that glorifies Him. There were moments that I felt pretty iffy about putting my heart and soul out there and often times asked myself if people would actually like my art. In those moments of self doubt, it was God’s comforting words and promises that made me step out in faith and believe in the whole thing. This really has been a dream come true, by God’s grace and I am infinitely grateful for this blessing and for everyone who supported this project. It’s all from you Lord, for you! Excited for what is to come!
A datebook for dreamers who chronicle their daydreams, for visionaries whose plans are too big to be boxed in by lines, for sentimentalists who want to make their favourite moments last forever.
Get inspired to travel, create and grow in the faith with tons photographs, doodles and blank pages!
Here are a few instagrams and screen caps from awesome clients and bloggers, some of whom I am very blessed to call friends. Thank you so much guys! You are awesome!

Above: a collection of some of the planners I got to customise over the years. The Daykeeper has got to be my fave cause I got to share my planner passion with a lot more people. (Don’t worry, I saved everyone from awkward photographs of my younger self. Exhibit A: my older college planners above.)

Below: At the Heima Bazaar love triangle. Manning a booth was a lot of fun but I discovered how hard it was to be sales person- not online, but in the flesh! I I’m one of the most awkward people in the world, so I was squirming every time I was right smack in the middle of small talk. (I hope nobody noticed! Lol) Thank God for my friends Ayen and Zyra, who helped me out it that department! Haha! I’m super thankful to everyone who came out and braved the friday night traffic to get their Daykeepers, you guys are really the coolest.
Late last year, I stumbled upon this nugget of wisdom from Rick warren that really spoke to me. I hope it inspires everyone just as much.
“Don’t ignore your interests. Consider how they might be used for God’s glory. There is a reason that you love to do these things. Serve God in a way that expresses your heart. Figure out what you love to do, what God gave you a heart to do-and do it for His glory.”
