Meet The New Daisy – Ria

Hi everyone! I am Ria de Lara, from the sunny Philippines!  I recently became a member of the 2018-2019 Cocoa Daisy Planner Team and it’s such a dream come true!

I am a stay at home mom of two boys, a 19 year old and a 6 year old.  My husband and I are celebrating our 20th year together this 2018.  My family and I love to eat out and travel together so I’ve been documenting our tiny adventures through journaling and scrapbooking.

I love scrapbook supplies!!! I find it hard not to hoard patterned paper, stickers, stamps, etc.  I actually have to remind myself to use my supplies because sometimes I like them a bit too much that I get scared to use them in fear that they would run out.  Hehehe!!  My favorite things to use on my projects are diecuts and stickers because they make it easy for me to decorate.

I started decorating my planner about two years ago and I’m having so much fun! I love how my planner evolved from just being a place to jot down my schedule into something more special, like a keepsake.  It has become a place where I can do some journaling and memory keeping as well.

I received my first ever Planner Kit from Cocoa Daisy this month and I’m really blown away by the beautiful things inside!  It will be my first time to use an A5 sized planner, and a ring bound one at that.

At the same time, I’ll also be using the standard insert for my journaling and memory keeping.  I’ve started using my March insert as a daily gratitude journal.

Thank you for taking the time to get to know me. Let’s continue to inspire each other by always sharing our work in the Cocoa Daisy Planner Fans Group and on our social media channels.

You can find me on social media as @imfeelingcraftytoday on instagram and on my blog

    Your handwriting is amazing! Love how you document your daily life, that’s what I use my planner for more than planning. Can’t wait to see how you use the April kit, any chance that you will be doing any youtube videos?
