Small Haul from Michaels aka The Promissed Land! 💖

Here’s some pictures of the things I picked up at Michaels this week…

I got these cute shaker stickers from Recollections to celebrate the highlites in life as I use my MAMBI Happy Planner to keep memories as well as to keep me on track!

So pretty and shiny! They reflect the light like crazy! Their original price is 4.49$!

I also got some organizational stickers from Recollections to help me plan! They come in summery colors which is perfect for may!

These are normally 5.99$ but I had a coupon for 50% off! The great thing with Michaels is that you always get loads of coupons, especially if you sign up with your email!

I got some motivational quotes from MAMBI to decorate my sidebar…

The Motivational quotes were 4.79 and are really pretty!

These die cuts from Recollections were also on sale! And come in cute summer colors and a party theme! Loves it!

The whole packet only cost 3.74$ for 24 pieces!

I needed some post-it-notes and found these cute, almost transpatent ones from Recollections as well! They photographed really pink for some reason, but are more blue colors with gold highlites!

They were only 4.49$ and come with a pageflag as well!

They also had an awesome Washi-tape sale that I couldn’t miss!

Two rolls for 1.00$! Wow!

Just when I thought I had finished shopping, this cute hand-soap caught my eye at the cash! I couldn’t resist!

It doesn’t have a very long lasting smell, but it works well and smells good while you use it! It was only 2.00$ so nothing can go wrong there!

I hope you enjoyed my small haul! Tomorrow is #tgif so…

Have a great weekend and Happy Adventuring! 💖

Snaps from my Happy Planner! #nerdmoment 💚

Not only do I use my Happy Planner to plan my life, I also use it for memory keeping! …and after that, I like to take pictures of my planner to remember what my planner looked like!…👀

Does that even make sense? Lol #calamity

I decorated my monthly page with this cute clip from debadoit.com . It is so cute!

Here is a closeup of the clip on my page! I slide it along to keep track of the week so it follows me through the month!

I also love this clipart unicorn! I think it’s from Recollections but I’m not sure! I used it to beautify my sidebar! My inspirational quote is my reminder that what you focus on gets attracted into your life! I realized this on a day when I was craving olives, and my partner randomly brought home a huge tub of olives! The law of attraction deffinitely works!

I helped create a vegan exhibit at the local library and got this cute sticker which I included for memory keeping!

Here was my inspirational goal for the month! I layered all kinds of old stickers to make this section!

This card came from a small Recollections stack and I love this quote! You can only move forward if you learn from your past! In the end of the day, Life is Pretty Sweet!

Planning makes adventuring so much easier!

Have a great weekend and Happy Adventuring! 💚

Small Haul… Stationary Style! 📔🎨

I haven’t shopped as much this month, but picked up a few things from the Dollar Store and Michaels!

Also totally messed up my planner by turning two pages instead of one, something I noticed after I completed my week! The quote from a Happy Planner Sticker Set is so fitting! “Follow your Passion!” In my case, if you can see it! …#fail #calamity

I haven’t had good pens for a long time, but I’ve picked up some awesome sets lately…

These Bic Grip were only 2.00$ and write amazing! Very smooth and comfortable!

I also got these Bic Permanent markers at the Dollar Store for 2.50$ And the sparkly stickers for 1.00$

They do go through the page a bit but will be perfect for livening up my doodles in my sketch book!

Finally I got these Recollections stickers at Michaels to decorate my Happy Planner! They were only 3.79$ each!

Here is a close-up of each one!

They are foiled for extra joy!😀💖

That’s all for now, I’m waiting for a few more things to be delivered before I can do a fashion haul!

So keep warm and Happy Shopping!

Coffee… because I need to clean!

My friend sent me this and it is so fitting! I’ve been getting ready for my trip to bring Miss Chinue to my mum in Canada! Along with her things… so I want to leave the apartment in the best possible state…

27750482_10155066769090824_2071111676875543562_n

I’ve got never-ending lists and one of the things I need to do is clean! I’ve found this awesome list that will help me to remember all the things to clean and have it clipped as an insert in my planner…. I hope to tick all the boxes before I go…

And this cleaning solution should take care of most of my problems… I’d love to share where I got it but it was one of those random shared posts I get…

The only one who can relax is Bobby, the dog I babysit! He’s not going anywhere and has a new babysitter set up already for while I’m away! I wish I were him!

My Happy Planner is the only thing keeping me sane! To see the bookmark up close, you can see it in my Etsy shop; Yatsinas Art Shop

If you have ever moved apartments, you know how I feel! #calamity

Bring on the coffee!

Happy adventuring! 

I sure hope so!…

I found this quote and I sure hope it applies! I have booked my flights! Off to Canada it is! I cannot wait! Although Spain has been a fun adventure, the everyday life is too slow moving for me! Can you imagine that my internet was cut off because it has a limited amount of data you can use a month? (Hence being MIA for a few days!) Or that you cannot pay a bill unless if you have an appointment on a specific day? That never happened in Canada! I am missing good old North American efficiency!

The only thing keeping me going is my Happy Planner! So here are some pictures in romantic lighting of how I decorated my weeks of slow to no internet!

The sidebar I decorated with free printables from victoriathatcher.com and @gpstickerstudio on Etsy! If you join their Facebook group, they sometimes do free printables that you can size according to your needs!

 

My full boxes are from GPStickerStudio although I’m not sure they still have the same sets available! I still recommend this shop for all your planner needs!

The next week is a complete mix of free stickers, stickers I had from my scrap-booking albums and I even made my own banners with washi tape! You can see I am on a no-spend month while I complete my move!

IMG_0764 (2)

The only noteworthy thing, besides my running around organising things was the epic thunderstorm we had that knocked out the lights and flooded lots of places!

I call more than one day off quantity time since I’m not used to having that much free time! I like how the improvised banner turned out though! And the stamps from Aldi worked really well! No running and they dried really fast too!

Finally I’m up to date with planning! This week was epic with running around to different offices! Check out the romantic shot! lol  IMG_0778 (2)

Here is a overview of my spread! I like the colour combination! I didn’t think it would work so well!

IMG_0775 (2)

I am enjoying my handmade page dividers! This week I’m using them more for decoration, but they are functional as well as they stick out from the planer, letting my know which page I’m at! I especially love that they move independently and don’t take up the entire page! If you wish to check them out, the link to my shop is here; YatsinasArtShoponEtsy

IMG_0777 (2)

My favourite feature in this weeks spread is the inspirational quotes! With all the calamities I faced, I needed every single one!

That’s my update so far! I have been really busy these days but should be doing some fun shopping hauls and activities soon!

So Happy Planning and Book that Flight! 

 

 

 

 

Halloween Happiness!

Halloween in review! I didn’t do anything I planned to do, or what normal people did! I did get to check out the cool decoration at my friends bar Magpies at the Port and I’m guessing they had a fantastic party that evening.

We stayed in but had some yummy frozen fruit-infused water! It looks really spectacular but is literally just frozen fruit and loads of ice in water!

Here is a close up! We used berries, peaches and coconut but you can use any fruit you like! So refreshing!

1509546805434

For snacks I had roasted Chestnuts, my favourite of the season!

The most fun I had was in my Happy Planner with my Halloween insert from my Etsy shop Yatsinas Art Shop on Etsy and some free printable stickers by madeinaday.com

1509547131714

Here are some closeups of the Halloween stickers! I love the little spiders and bat icons!

1509546926848

And I hid my to-do-list under the EEK! Sticker by only applying glue to the top part of the cutout and using it as a little flap to cover my list!

1509547252789

Our days off I decorated with the other icons that came with the page! So cute!

1509547431363

I call it quantity-time because we’re not used to having so much time off! lol I’m sure we’ll find something interesting to do!

Hope you had a Happy Halloween too! 

 

As ready for Halloween as ever!

Although Spain is still hot and sunny, its been getting a bit cooler in the evenings, meaning fall is coming at last! I’ve also received the odd invitation to Halloween events at local bars! That, and some places have decoration up! However it’s not a major thing here unless you have children!

So I’m not entirely sure if I want to decorate this year, I’m considering adding some decor to my mantle piece and have found some awesome i deas that can be done for cheap! I found all of these ideas on a website called IdeaStand.com and will post some of the pictures from the site so you can see my favourites! The link to the article where all of the ideas can be found is 25 Easy and Cheap DIY Halloween Decoration Ideas

My all time favourite that they posted is the Halloween Town! I think it would look fantastic on my mantle piece!

However these apothecary jars and bottles look cool too!

Especially if I add in some glamorous skulls!

I think for the bottom section I’d like these flower pots as well! They are spooky without being tacky! I really am enjoying the darker colour theme this website proposes!

As a finishing touch I think these DIY bats are awesome because you can arrange them any way you like!

Let’s see how well I do, considering I’m in a tourist area where shopping is very different compared to shopping in North America! #homesweethome

At least my Happy Planner is ready to go! I’ve made some fun Halloween Inserts that feature my hand-drawn doodles and some fun quotes! I’ll link my new Etsy shop so you can try them out if you wish! Yatsinas Art Shop on Etsy

Here is my Happy Witch and the quote on the back!

1508930539644

And my Pumpkin Themed design!

1508930790693

1508930673316

All of them are cut out in unusual shapes and laminated for strength and I’ll be adding more designs to the shop as I go! It’s literally brand new!

Bob (my artistic director) and I wish you a Happy Halloween!
