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 fromΒ GPStickerStudioΒ 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! lolΒ Β 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;Β YatsinasArtShoponEtsy

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!Β

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!

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

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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!

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

DSCN0530

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!

DSCN0531

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!

DSCN0532

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!

DSCN0533

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

DSCN0534

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

DSCN0535

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!

DSCN0536DSCN0537DSCN0539

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

DSCN0544

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…

DSCN0545DSCN0548DSCN0549

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!

DSCN0546

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

DSCN0550

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!

DSCN0551

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

DSCN0552

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!

Random finds! πŸ’™πŸ’œπŸ

Whoever designed this is brilliant! I’m currently using it as my screensaver and it makes me happy just looking at it! πŸ’ŸπŸ’ŸπŸ’Ÿ
These nails also incorporate the cheerful summer colors! So cute!

I’ve been using my Happy Planner religiously and it’s keeping me sane and in control of everything, especially as we are planning on moving soon! πŸ’›πŸ”°πŸ’± I found this idea on Pinterest (@yatsina) for keeping track of your seasonal #bucketlist and I would like to try something similar for fall! I’ll share the results in a future post!πŸ’Ÿ

Finally I’m sharing this quote which I think totally applies! Some friendships are truly forever! πŸ’›πŸ’›πŸ

Hope you’re enjoying the end of the summer season! πŸ’›πŸ’›πŸ

August in my Happy Planner! πŸŒ…πŸπŸ’Ÿ

This month is a busy one so my Happy Planner is a vital part of life! I’ve run out of sticker kits so have been improvising with washi tape and magazine clippings! 🌸

This picture of a luxury house in California inspired my theme. If only I could remember which magazine it was from!  #oldage #memoryfail πŸ™†

Here’s my second half of the week more or less before the ink…

I made my own weekend banner! 🌸

And filled my sidebar with decorative washi and this cute quote! πŸ’Ÿ

The page clips I got in a packet of six from the Chinese shop for only 1.00$! Loves it! πŸ’Ÿ

This should help with keeping track of everything that needs to be done! 🌸

I also hope to have some fun before the end of the month! I’m inspired by this August to do list by http://www.evelynhenson.com and will try to complete the list! πŸ’Ÿ

Finally I found this fitting quote on Instagram which will help to inspire us all to try and upgrade our lives! πŸ’Ÿ

Happy August adventures! πŸ’ŸπŸ’ŸπŸπŸŒ…πŸ’›

Shopping at Wish and a new planner idea! πŸŒΈπŸŒΈπŸŒΈ

My items from the Wish app have arrived! So impressed! Considering I only paid for the shipping as they were free as a promotion they are great quality! And they arrived really fast too!

There are the pictures of the ring and wrap around watch. The total for both is about 5.00$ which was the shipping cost! #lovesit πŸ’ŸπŸ’ŸπŸ’Ÿ

Beautiful! πŸ’™πŸ’™πŸ’™

I want to get used to wearing my hair loose so I will make myself a habit tracker similar to the one below to see how many days I can go with it down! 

I think these are a great way to change a habit to improve my life! As long as I don’t fail…

Happy planning and shopping! πŸŒΈπŸ’ŸπŸŒΈ

Life and Shopping! πŸ’›πŸ’œπŸπŸ’œπŸ’›

The only thing standing between me and stress is my Happy Planner and a few little things I picked up at the mall! πŸ’Ÿ

The lipstick and gloss were barely 3.00$ combined and are a beautiful shade of girly pink. The concealer was about 3.00$ and works amazing! No more zombie eyes!πŸ˜‡

I also picked up this body scrub for 1.99$! In the summer it’s important to have smooth skin!πŸ’Ÿ

This 7.00$ highlight kit caught my eye so we’ll see how it turns out!πŸ˜‡

Finally here is a Flipagram of my Happy Planner! A collection of found-footage of the last few months. I desperately need some new planner stickers and I don’t have a printer so I’m cut off until I move! πŸ’›πŸ’œπŸ’›

Hope you’re having a great summer! Happy shopping and Happy planning! πŸ’ŸπŸ’›πŸ’œπŸ’Ÿ
