2017 is coming to an end and I must say that I am truly happy with the new planning hobby that I started earlier this year.Throughout the past ten months I have come to find a sense of tranquility when I am decorating my planner and peace when I see things are organized for the month or week.Of course, I still leave room for spontaneity especially because I am married to Mr. Spontaneous himself, but I find comfort in knowing the bill payments have been scheduled, the appointments are set, and the meal plan is complete.Next year I plan to add Memory Planning to my hobby and I look forward to creating some beautiful scrapbook photo albums.
My December planner spreads are filled with plenty of glitter, sparkle, and color.I love the holiday season so my planner spreads definitely reflect my love for Christmas, family time, and making lifetime memories.This month the spreads feature stickers from the Me and My Big Ideas (Happy Planner) sticker books as well as washi from Dollar Tree and Amazon.You can see my monthly and weekly planner spreads via this recent YouTube video.
My faith journal monthly spreads include a breakdown of a beautiful card made by my friend Catina, along with other goodies available in detail via my recent blog post.
Hope your holiday season is off to a great start and I pray that you enjoy making great memories for the remainder of 2017 and beyond.
I picked up a couple of the new Me And My Big Ideas Happy Planners to use for 2018 and I was able to create some quick flip through videos of the Soft Geos Classic, #MomLife Mini, and Mini Budget Edition. **Updated 11/25: I added a video for the 2018 Grace Upon Grace faith planner** You can check out each of them below.
Recently I was in search for some planner stickers that represented women of color and I was having a hard time narrowing down my search. I tried a couple of shops but did not like the shipping time and upon arrival, the items weren’t up to par. While clicking hashtags on Instagram I came across a few posts showcasing the Mocha Glam Box for Planners. I was so excited! The very thing I had been looking for was available to me via monthly subscription so I decided to try it out. To see the goodies I received check out my recent YouTube video.
Included in the box I received were stickers from a new Etsy shop called JD and Brooklyn. I have become a faithful customer of this shop because of the variety of planner stickers offered, the great price point, and extremely reasonable shipping cost. With JD and Brooklyn you are able to customize your stickers with several skin tone options and a few even have various hairstyles to chose from.
Since the shop is so new I know most people wonder about shipping time and customer service. With my first order, two sheets were missing and I notified Philshaunda via Etsy message the same day. She contacted me immediately and the missing sheets were at my house within three business days. As for order shipping times, my orders have all shipped and arrived to my mailbox within six business days. I encourage you to check her shop for the detailed shipping information and keep in mind that it takes time to customize, print, pack, label, and ship anything.
