I sure hope so!…

I found this quote and I sure hope it applies! I have booked my flights and the move is in full swing! 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! Time for a new chapter!

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!

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!

1509546501983

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! 

 

Small Happy Mail Haul!and Coupon Code!

20171028_110744

The results of my rainy day excursion!… My happy mail from TropicaliSupply.com arrived! Unfortunately the weather and light didn’t cooperate so it took me a while to get half decent pictures! Living in the Costa del Sol, the land of Sun, I couldn’t find any sunshine to save my life! I had to try about three times!

However I can tell you that this website is awesome! The t-shirts are really high quality! They fit really well and are soft and comfortable to wear! I wear a small, and the size is completely accurate for me! The colours are bright and sunny and I love their cute designs! They are totally worth the price and feel really luxurious without having to break the bank to buy them! I’ll be shopping there again!

So here are some pictures so you can see them on!

My favourite:

The blue one:

And the red design:

Bob, the Yorkie, my artistic director totally approves!

I had a special discount code from TropicaliSupply to try out the clothes, but If you want to try them out for yourself,…

You can use the coupon code FALLSALE for 20% off your purchase

Bob and I wish you Happy Shopping! 

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!

18-diy-halloween-decoration-ideas

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!

19-diy-halloween-decoration-ideas

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!

1508930596484

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! 

That Happy Planner Life…

1508414499671

What a fitting quote for this month! This is the monthly divider in my Classic Happy Planner. I have the undated version which suits me perfectly and this divider just happens to coincide with the fall storms and the most hectic moment in my life, moving country, again!

Here is the overview of my favourite spread so far! DSCN0587

I had to use magazine clippings as I am extremely low on stickers! But I like how it turned out! Especially as I managed to match the washi tapes and pen colors to give it a bit of a theme!

DSCN0590

I drew my own day off stickers out of post it notes but I really like how the ‘Glam Life’ fills the boxes completely going over just a bit to make it look natural!

And my quote in my sidebar is too fitting! I love how the colours of the clippings matched my washi tape from the Chinese shop! It only cost 1.00$ for 3 rolls and I got it ages ago!

DSCN0592

As always I like clipping my clip-on-page-marker to the magnetic one so the pages don’t get damaged!

DSCN0591

I have a few more spreads from this month that I like but with the rain I haven’t been able to take good pictures yet! I also managed to get some free printable stickers that I’ve been enjoying and will include in future posts!

Happy Planning! I hope you have a great week!
