Ever since I was a little girl, I have always loved writing things down. Even when hadn’t learned how to read yet, I would put letters together and pretend like I was very busy making lists, “filling out” forms or writing letters. When I learned how to write my name, I would write it on paper over and over again. When going back to school shopping, I had to make sure I had my “Lisa Frank” stationary sets with matching trapper keeper, pencils, notepads, etc. To this day, I love making lists and planning. Sometimes I will add something to a list just to cross it off! It makes me feel like I have accomplished something. I also love to plan and have had some sort of planner ever since middle school. I never thought that planning could actually be so fun for so many people and that planners could look so pretty!
I discovered the happy planner in July and it’s no surprise that I’ve become a planner addict since. I love not only planning my week, but also decorating it with stickers and filling it out every morning while I have my coffee so I know what my day will look like. I have found some sticker shops on Etsy which is my favorite place to buy planner stickers from. These shops include vintage gypsy road, caress press and sweet kawaii design. I also buy stickers from Michaels and Hobby Lobby.
This is a planner spread I did using vintage gypsy road’s “falling for floral” kit and the October kit. I also used some orange and gold patterned washi tape which I found at paper source. The leaf stickers are from Michaels as well as the birthday present sticker. I really like the way this turned out, even though my planner spreads usually have a lot more white space. I like how colorful and “fall- like” this one is. I wanted it to be festive since it includes the official first day of Fall, my favorite season!
How about you guys? Are you into “glam planning”? If you’re thinking about it, I highly recommend the happy planner. I like it better than my Erin Condren planner which I use at work.
So right now this is my greatest guilty pleasure. I cannot stop buying stickers from Etsy. Seriously. How about you? What are your guilt pleasures?
Here’s more planner love.
