It’s a Giveaway! – Happy Planner

img_1538 It's a Giveaway! - Happy Planner
Hello!

This is so exciting. I am doing my first ever giveaway…on the blog! If you’ve been following me for awhile, you know that I am one of “those crazy planner people.” It’s so true. I love using my planner and having fun with it. Unfortunately, my Plan With Me posts have slowed down quite a bit because I haven’t been decorating as much but I know I will in the near future.

But since I have a bit of an overstock of supplies and planners that I am just not going to use, I decided to do a small giveaway! This is mostly going to take place on and through my instagram but I thought I would share it on here anyway. Plus, there are more photos and I can talk a little bit more about each of the items!

So, if you want to be entered into the giveaway, be sure to check out my Instagram! Rules will be posted on the photo!! You don’t want to miss out!

I seriously, have too many planners. I have actually had a few of the Classic Happy Planners and got rid of them. And a couple fitness planners as well. I really don’t use them. I was using the fitness planners for awhile to track my macros and what not but girl, that’s a TON of work! It lasted about 4 weeks and I started using an app on my phone. When it comes to actually planning out my week, I much prefer the pen-to-paper method anyway. So, that’s why the fitness planner is included!

I even had a few extra sticker sheets laying around, including a fitness pack from Me and My Big Ideas that are also meant for The Happy Planner. I figured, why not throw a few in there!

As for the scrapbook paper – you’re probably wondering why that’s in there. Well, I added the scrapbook paper simply because I use it a lot in my planners and if you’ve seen my posts, you might be interested in using them? Just a thought, I guess! I use them to add a little bit of a different color to the backgrounds of my weekly spread. Sometimes it actually helps me to make everything more coordinated.

I just figured that since I have a large supply of craft supplies and planner supplies, I’d  just do a giveaway for someone maybe wanting to try something new! Maybe you’ll find a new passion. Best of luck to you!!

Plan With Me – January 23-29

dsc_0765_fotor Plan With Me - January 23-29

I think it’s safe to say that I’ve got my planner creativity back! A few weeks…errr, months of not planning and decorating my planner did me some good. I was busy having a baby and preparing for her arrival anyway. Adjusting to having two babies at home definitely left me with NO time for planning…I wasn’t going to go anywhere, so why plan anything?

But since I set out to decorate and be in my planner for this year, I figured I would post every week! That plan seems to be doing MUCH better than my other challenge – A Year of Me: A Selfie A Day. If you’ve been following me, you can see that isn’t happening. Oh well, I tried. I think that’s why you’re not supposed to make a million changes at the beginning of a new year. You start slow and work your way through it.

ANYWAY, this is a planner post! So, let’s talk more about washi tape, stickers, and craft paper.

dsc_0765_fotor Plan With Me - January 23-29

As you can see, there’s something new attached to my planner! I caved and bought the leather binder from Me and My Big Ideas at Michael’s. Hey, I had a 60% off coupon. I figured I might as well use it. Or was it the 60% off The Happy Planner sale? Either way, I got a good deal on it. And it’s GREAT! I love having everything I need in one little spot! I even created little pockets for my binder so that I can put some sticker sheets in them. Maybe I will do a post about what’s in my binder next week or something.

The stickers that I like to use are all of the new sticker packs that Me and My Big Ideas released not too long ago. There are TONS of stickers in these packs! And they make me so happy. Is that weird? Probably not, that’s why the planner is called The Happy Planner. I am not exactly sure what packs I used because I was in a hurry to get this done on Monday morning after my son woke up 3 hours earlier than normal. My daughter was still asleep so I wanted to take advantage of the opportunity to work in my planner! I am pretty sure the sticker packs I had used came from Work It Out, Quotes, Mom Life, Memory Planning, and Productivity. Those seem to be my “go-tos” when I plan lately.

Last week, a friend of mine invited me on a trip to Hobby Lobby. Turns out, she invited me to see what kind of fabric I liked so that she could make my birthday present (how cute?!). dsc_0765_fotor Plan With Me - January 23-29But while we are there I notice that all paper crafts are 50% off…..crap. I needed up buying about 4 or 5 books of scrapbook paper and they are the prettiest pieces of paper ever! As you can see on the planner, there are some pretty, printed pieces of paper in the boxes. You’ll notice a trend…I like to cover boxes up to add more dimension and pops of color. I feel like if I used ONLY stickers, they planner would still look plain and wouldn’t really follow a “theme.”I also added a pretty rose piece of paper for a little extra depth of color form this GORGEOUS floral pack that I purchased as well.

The little bit of washi tape I had used was mainly from the Rose Gold washi tape pack from Me and My Big Ideas for The Happy Planner. Rose gold is gorgeous and very popular over the past year. I feel like 2016 was the year of rose gold…everything. Hey, I am definitely a fan. My iPhone is rose gold. I didn’t use too many of the rose gold stickers that come in the $4.99 Rose Gold sticker pack from MAMBI because…I don’t have a lot. I think they need a huge pack of JUST silver, JUST gold, JUST black, and JUST rose gold stickers. MAMBI, if you come across this page…I would love this. Thanks! 🙂 But seriously, the sticker pack is really pretty but I don’t like to use up all of my stickers on one spread!

As you can see, there isn’t a whole lot going on this week. My friend’s birthday is on Wednesday and I would’ve remembered that whether it was written down or not. We’ve been friends for about 12 years now. And then as you can see, there are little TV stickers on my week. Those were made but Fabulously Planned – love her shop – and I am so excited for this week in TV world! GREY’s ANATOMY is back!!! Not only that, I really got into How To Get Away With Murder when my daughter was born. I couldn’t work out for about 6 weeks after having her so, I caught up on every single season…til now. It didn’t take me long and now I am completely hooked. And guys, doesn’t Scandal come back too?! All of my shows on a Thursday! I don’t have cable though, so I can’t watch them until Friday anyway, but  like to note when they come on. Monday is The Bachelor. I never really kept up with it in the past 5 years but my friend from high school came to visit a couple weeks ago and now I am watching it again. Oh boy.

Friday for “Girl’s Night In” is a Lularoe Birthday party!! It’s mine. Haha. A close friend of mine became a consultant so why not host a party and have a birthday party all in one? We can all hang out and shop.

Well, that’s pretty much it for my week. And as always, this is “before the pen.” I don’t need to add too much personal information in there. 😉 If you have any questions on what I used, please feel free to ask and I will try to find where I got everything. There are links throughout the post (and below) to find some of the things I mentioned! Thanks for stopping by!

Plan With Me – January 9-14

I am a little behind in posting this week’s plan with me but I have some fun Hingis happening this week!! Well, no activities or anything but a friend of mine from back home, came to visit me for a few days!! 

It’s exciting because I’ve been in the Navy for almost 5 years now and this is the first time anyone has come to visit me. Since having the babies, I have been going home less frequently so it was about time someone came to visit ME! 😆

Along with friends visiting, that means you have to work a bit harder on getting in those workouts you had planned on. I wrote them down and I have to do them, right?! Well, I had two workouts scheduled for over the weekend and I didn’t get to them. I had a busy weekend with my friend and I just wanted to be more “lax” about it. But as you can see, I had to shift my days so this is where my stickers came in! 😂 Easy way to cover up your messes. Haha!
