The official start of fall is right around the corner so I thought I would make a little bucket list and write down some goals for this Fall. I’m thinking of starting a new series called “Create With Me” I hope to include some fun project within this series and hope to see it grow as I move forward with different videos.
Earlier this week was Video Games Day and I was planning on having this post go up then, but life had other plans. My week has been busy and insane and I think I’m looing my mind. However, it’s now the weekend and now it’s time to forget the week’s event and relax with some games! I thought I would share what’ve been playing recently and what’s on my wishlist for the next steam sale.
I hope you let me know your take on any of the games I talk about today or what you currently have on your wishlist in the comments!
Happy “Read A Book” Day!
I am so busy and I don’t have enough time to spend just reading and enjoying books as much as I want. But I do have a goal this year of reading 20 books. For some, that’s not a big number, for others that it is a big number.
I have been so busy this summer that somehow it has just managed to flash right by me! It’s officially September now and that means it’s time to start thinking about Autumn and planner related things to celebrate Autumn. Which is why I am so happy to announce AUTUMN PRINTABLES ARE NOW IN THE SHOP! I have my first four kits in the shop now with a load more on the way.
Today is Zach’s & I anniversary! I can’t believe it’s been six years. It does not feel like it at all. So I wanted to share some other news too today… Zach and I got engaged on the 28th of July and we haven’t really told anyone…whoops!
So… now my internet family knows! I am happy to be engaged, but I’m finding that I have a lot of problems with society when it comes to weddings and being engaged, so I’m gonna talk about some of it today. I might make it into some form of a series, I see that’s a cool thing to do now- wedding blogging that is. I’ve tried reading a handful and they are all the same. So I hope that even if only one other person feels or thinks the same as me on any of the sections I talk about, that they know they are not alone.
It’s been a while, guys! But with summer winding down I want to start blogging more, and by more I mean to get back into making posts about geeky stuff and food and life stuff plus the youtube videos I do now so, there should be lots of content coming at you! Today I thought I would start off with something really silly. Mostly because I stared a blank screen for half an hour with no idea of where/how to start a post, and then it popped into my head!
Let’s chat about ice cream!
What a whirlwind of a week! I hope everyone had a great 4th of July! It’s always weird having a holiday in the middle of a work week, kinda makes everything feel like either Monday or Friday. It just kinda gets me in a funk of some kind. I also think that I am a bit behind in my listing schedule, so thanks for hanging in there with me while I get things up and going.
I want to say a HUGE thank you to my YouTube Subscribers & Instagram Followers, there has been so much growth over the last week or so on those two platforms, which is amazing! And it makes me feel so humble that so many people like what I create, and post. I am about 100 followers away from 1,000 followers on Instagram and I am super excited to break that landmark, and am already working on a giveaway to say thanks for all the love and support. So if you have a chance and want to help me get to my goal, I would really appreciate it if you could give me a follow or tag others to follow me.
This week on my youtube channel I’m starting a new series on YouTube so everyone can see how the products in the shop translate to physical items, the first video will be posted tomorrow (Thursday, July 12, 2018). I’m hoping that this will help answer any questions and give a visual for how spreads layout.
I have a one or two more one-page kits to kick out then I will be moving into two-page kits and that will be the norm for my printable kits. The two-page kits will not be in the shop until I have finished transitioning my physical products into digital ones. This week I am finishing up the one-page kits & there will be a bundle of these kits offered at a reduced price. That listing will be up sometime this weekend (July 14-July 15, 2018).
The two pages kits will start with Autumn & Halloween themes and those will start to be posted in late July/August.
NEW LISTINGS FROM LAST WEEK IN THE SHOP:
- Taco Fiesta One Page Printable Kit
- Mermaid Life One Page Printable Kit
- Amazon Package Printable
- Pastel Half Boxes Printable
- Bold Half Boxes Printable
- Date Covers Version 1, 5 Page Printable

Check out this week PWM, I used a basic kit from Wild Summer Designs called “More Summer” with a flourish of other shops stickers & stickers from some of the Happy Planner Sticker Books.
Welcome to my first weekly shop update! If you ever have questions about what is going on in the shop, this is where you can (hopefully) find those answers, if the answer isn’t here then you can leave comments with your questions and I will be happy to answer them.
The shop is FINALLY re-opened! YAY! It has been a long road getting here. I think my shop was only open a couple weeks before I realized how things were set up was not going to work out. So I closed it and continued to look for solutions to shipping prices, then Etsy raised their rates (twice I think? or once was USPS and once was Etsy?). It became very obvious to me that shipping physical products were not going to be possible.
(Also at this time I had some personal stuff going on which meant I couldn’t focus on the shop like I wanted to.)
So what are some other options? Well, printables. I love printables, and it makes a lot of sense for me to have a shop dedicated to printables. My plan right now is to come out with some basic one-page kits, then expand to two-page kits, and monthly kits. Also to create some fun functional items that are staples to any planner girls collection. Overall I want to have printables that are a little unique, a little quirky, and totally functional.
I am also in the process of converting what was in a physical format into a printable format and those will start being listed soon.
I want to thank those who have reached out to me during this time. Your encouragement means the world to me and I am very excited to have my shop open again!
I am also starting a new journey in a Happy Planner! I think I found my planner peace, check out my new set up here:
Be sure to follow me on Instagram for sneak peaks & news about new printables in the shop!
Well, it’s been a hot minute since my last post. I have been so so busy IRL that I have been neglecting my blog. BUT, I wanted to hop on and share my thoughts about E3 that just got over, while it’s all fresh in my mind.
