My Happy Planner is my Brain

Finally I got my act together and managed to take the pictures of my Happy Planner! It is after all, the only thing keeping my life from falling apart! I didn’t mention this before, but I am in the process of moving to Canada. I’ve moved country and house before, but in this case I’m going to be the adultiest adult which is kind of nerve wracking!

At least I’ve got my photography assistant to help me set up good shots!

Here’s an overview of the week of August the 21st where we had the solar eclipse! It was the theme of my week although we couldn’t see anything over here in Europe!

Normally I have a quote in my sidebar, however this week I wrote in some random facts about the solar eclipse on one of the sticky notes that came with my Happy Planner. I thinkΒ  it’ll be a cool way to remember the event without having to google the facts!

Then I decorated the second half of the page with some random stickers! The butterfly is really a bookmark from Daphney’s Diary that I got years ago! I cut it up and glued it in to mark the solar eclipse!

This washi tape from the local Dollar Store fits the theme perfectly!

All the full boxes you see are from GP Sticker Studio on Etsy! I used them to mark time off!

The week of August 28th was the week where everything went wrong! I had friends visiting but instead of seeing them, I ended up having to search for a rental car!Β I still love the way this spread turned out and it sure kept me organised during that stressful week!

I used the nail stickers from Primark to mark the work schedule and the large friends sticker I had from years ago! If you look at the bottom of the picture, you’ll see I postponed all cybering until I resolved the problems! lol

September 4th life was finally back to normal, but I am now running out of sticker sets which means I have to improvise! Besides the full boxes from GP Sticker Studio, all other stickers are from the local Dollar Store. My plan was to not buy any more stickers until after my move, but I’m not sure how that will work out…

In this spread, I used washi tape to mark work schedules and time off with matching tape that had a different pattern!

As a small life hack; if your page clip is bending your paper, I have found that if I put on a magnetic page-mark first, and then clip the clip to the magnet, it not only looks cute, but it protects the page as well!

Absolutely love my quote this week! Being part Jamaican I can totally relate!

As you can see, my spreads are getting more improvised as I am almost completely out of stickers! I used some random scrapbooking paper and cut it up to decorate my sidebar! The heart sticker I used to mark our day off and quote sticker was from another random scrapbooking kit! I purposely used the tape holders cutter to cut the edges of the washi tape in an uneven way to give the spread more life!

Finally here is a closeup of the top of my page with my improvised decoration!

I’m so glad I’m finally caught up with my Happy Planner post! It’s also a great way to keep memories, no matter how stressful they were!

So I’m off to plan some more! If anyone knows of any free printable stickers, please let me know in a comment!

Happy Planning!

Continued Calamities and Blogging Fails!

Right now, coffee is my best friend! I’ve already bought my Starbucks Double Shot Expresso can for tomorrow morning! Now the challenge is to resist the temptation to drink it right away!

Trying to organise my life I’ve actually been using my Happy Planner and it has become more important to me than I ever expected! I thought I’d use it for memory keeping and to enjoy the cute sticker kits from Etsy shops but it has become a vital part of my life!

I’ve been planning to do a post showing how I’ve planned in the last few weeks, but calamity has struck again! I’ve dropped my phone on the road, and ever since then, the camera will not work at all! All it gives is strange green squiggly lines! I’m heart broken as it was my favourite camera that captured the light the way it really was!

I thought that would be the end of it, but no, today when I went to take the dog for a walk before taking the pictures with my camera, I locked myself outside and had to go in search for some friendly neighbours who could help me to get back inside. I didn’t bring the phone, my car keys or anything so I was totally cut off from anyone who could possibly help me! All I had was a garbage bag in case the dog poops! lol By the time I got back in, I had to leave and was too late to take the pictures…

Finally I came home and thought I’d take the pictures before the sun sets… But NO! The camera has run out of battery power too!

EPIC FAIL on all things blog related!

I guess I’ll have to do this the Spanish way… Manana!

I hope life is treating you well and you aren’t suffering any calamities, blogging or otherwise!Β
