UPDATE – 1/5/2017

Hello, lovelies!

Happy new year! I hope you all had a wonderful time during the holidays with family and friends, a safe time traveling to and from your destinations, and that the return to the working world wasn’t too rough. I got to go to one of my favorite places on earth, Trader Joe’s, while visiting my parents and get my favorite holiday cookies (Candy Cane Joe Joe’s) and some other goodies to bring home with me to my Trader Joe’s-less life up north.

Max’s family got me a Pusheen kigurumi onesie  for Christmas. It is the coziest. My parents got me a sewing machine and the most beautiful wind chime that they picked up in Mexico. Max, Michael, Megan, and I had a blast opening the presents my parents got us all. The gif below shows me doing a poor job of helping Max open his box of candy from my parents that contained a block of 9 Toblerones and a bag of gummy bears; and Michael hugging a bag of rice to go with the vegetable steamer that Megan is opening.

 

Besides regaling my Christmas adventures, my purpose of this post today is to let you guys know what’s going on in Julia-land and why I haven’t been posting lately.

Besides being extraordinarily busy, I’ve had the need to take some personal time lately. Don’t be alarmed, I’m fine. I just needed to sort through some things and it wound up taking up more time than I thought it would and due to this, my creative wells have kind of run dry. I’m working on getting the enegery to be creative back and I hope I’ll have some ideas to work with soon.

I also am currently out of sticker paper and without the funds to buy any at the moment. So, I’ve been sort of putting off making stickers since I can’t actually print them out and use them to show you all what they look like in my planner. Because of this, I’ve been using some of the mambi sticker sets that I mentioned in my last planner spread post. They’re awesome. Seriously awesome.

If you guys wouldn’t mind me showing  you spreads with stickers I didn’t make, I can continue posting weekly spreads and make stickers for my Wednesday downloads that I can’t provide an example for in my own planner. I don’t mind doing that at all. In the meantime, however, I might do a few filler posts to introduce you to my cats and maybe a few other things.

But, for now, that’s all I have today. I am so sorry that I’ve kind of left you guys high and dry for two weeks now. I promise I’ll try to have new material soon. Thank you for reading!

Weekly Spread 12/19 – 12/23

Hello, lovelies!

I’m back! 🙂 And today I have my weekly spread to share with you all.

So, on black friday, I took advantage of some of the INCREDIBLE sales that Michael’s had going on and snagged some of the new happy planner stuff. With the aid of some amazing coupons, including a half-birthday 60% off (yeah, they do that), I got some adorable new stickers, a cover for my BIG Happy Planner, and one of the new mini Happy Planners. I LOVE IT ALL. SO MUCH. It’s almost unreal how cute everything I get grom mambi is.

Because I was so excited about all my new stickers, and because I hadn’t finished my Holoday stickers yet for you all, I used the new mambi planner stickers in my planner this week. The sets I’m using are: Create 365™ The Happy Planner™ Value Pack Stickers, This Colorful LifeCreate 365™ The Happy Planner™ Life Quotes Stickers ;  and Create 365™ The Happy Planner™ Value Pack Stickers, Today Is the Day ; with a few extra stickers I had lying around from another pack of stickers I’d bought at Michael’s forever ago.

I hope you all like these new stickers as much as I do!

Happy planning!

Weekly Spread 10/10- 10/16

Hello, lovelies!

It’s Tuesday, again! Today, I have a brand new spread made with a set that I whipped up last week. When trying to decide on a sticker set to use for this week’s spread, I couldn’t find anything in the stickers I had already made or printed out that I wanted to use. So, I made an entirely new set.

The set I used this week is inspired by fall. I hope you like it!

I embellished the stickers I made with some stickers from the Me & My Big Ideas Pocket Pages Stickers in Love Yourself set and a fews stickers from the Heidi Swapp Memory Planner Floral Stickers with Gold Foil Finish set. 

I’ll have these stickers up tomorrow for download. 🙂

Have a happy Tuesday!
