Private Journal Entries in Springpad: What is happyconnected’s Role?

The last time I published here was February 25, 2013. I’ve since then last publication wrote privately, on Springpad. I usually start the week with a calendar Spring, plan forward with some description of how I want the week to transpire (bridal shower, finish x, y, z tasks). Thereafter, I would document the week with

I Look to Astrid So that I can Achieve “Mind Like Water” Peace and Ascend to To-Do Heaven

I am now accustomed to referring to my phone and my web versions of Astrid to see what I need to do TODAY.  Never in my life had I been this docile.  Not to my own mother, my college roommates, and not to the man that is going to marry me.  I am just one

Using Springpad to Manage Ideas/Inspirations for Posts on Your Blog

The reason why I write is so that I can have some balance from a full-time job that continues to consume me; so that I can cultivate this hobby that’s been an on and off affair over the last ten years.  However, inspirations come at every corner throughout the week.  It is hard for me

Pinterest’s Secret Board, a Feature Already in Springpad, Made Me Realize Pinterest’s Priceless “Pretty Factor”

I see in my email today a notice from the Pinterest team about its new Secret Board feature.  Isn’t that just Springpad? Except that Springpad ALSO enables multiple users to share a board, store checklists/tasks, add multiple photos onto in a gallery, add reminders, and finally add an item onto multiple notebooks.  And then right is when I realize that there is a component here that is beyond just features, there is the  “pretty factor.”

It’s the white dreamy layout , the white border around each image, juxtaposed against a gray canvas Pinterest has.  And I realize that Pinterest also applies some processing to its images. I love Springpad but I would continue to use Pinterest as a window to all things beautiful…..I hope that Springpad up the game with its design!! Or perhaps, Springpad is the Type A OCD equivalent to the more dreamy  elusive inspirational Pinterest. Looking at Pinterest is a guilty pleasure that is not going away because it’s so darn pretty!!!

Using Springpad to Gather Inspirations for a Backyard Wedding

One of the challenges with using a blank canvas, such as a house that is not typically rented out for weddings, is coming up with a vision.  The more I work on wedding planning, the more convinced that it is an exercise of creating a vision that is right for you, and using that vision

Researching for a Wedding Venue using Springpad

My fiancé and I started doing research last week on houses to have our wedding (we’re hoping to have our wedding in first week of June 2013 so we have roughly six months to plan).  We envision our wedding to be at the backyard of a house where we can have his family stay with us
