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.
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.

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!
Another month in the books! This month I successfully completed the Iggle Daily Journal Challenge. It seems like every month there are more people from the community participating in it which is amazing! Its so great to see the community coming together and sharing their day, or what inspires them, or their troubles with each other. I think in the long run it makes us all stronger and forms a stronger community. Which with the world the way it is, is really important. So, anyways, here are my pages:
I think my favorite pages are from March 23rd and 24th. So colorful and so happy. I was sick for a ton of March so I didn’t really have that much to write about or feel inspired by. I think this can be seen from day to day. I also started practicing and learning modern hand lettering-like that really cool stuff you see on pinterest all the time. You can start to see me playing with my lettering as the month goes on. Expanding my lettering styles is one of my goals for 2017 and since I was sick it gave me something to do on breaks from video games.
April is going to be insanely busy and I am hoping I have time to keep up with journaling. Sorta the opposite is happening for this next month from March.
These kits are something I have come to look forward to every month. However I think in April I will be getting the mini kit for the month. Unless it somehow beats March’s kit.
Because of this amazing kit I was able to get my notebook just how I like it:
The planner clips are from a few places, the heart macaroon is from the Sweet Life kit from Villabeautiful.com, the green pom is from Peachy Pom on etsy, the unicorn macaroon is from pinkiebows on etsy and the unicorn is from thebooknook on etsy. Last but not least is the blue pen, it’s from PenGem‘s latest collection; Northern Lights.
