Hello and welcome back to Gimmemymascara!
I know I’ve been absent for quite a while but I woke up this morning to a notification from WordPress letting me know how well my blog has been doing, even in my absence, and how my views were sky rocketing! WOAH! That’s definitely one way to help me out of bed on a #HumpDay! I went through my stats to notice planner related posts are what y’all are loving most right now, and today being the Erin Condren Life Planner release day, I thought a planner post was fitting!
I got word of the EC release last week, and while bloggers like Elle Fowler were raving about the new planners, I thought of how much I would really use a vertical planner and how it would fit into my day to day life. I also remembered I had bought the MAMBI 365 Happy Planner at Michaels a few months back while it was on sale and I thought I would use it this week as a test run for the EC. Here’s how the week’s going so far:
A) FULL BOX STICKERS!!! I recently got a few of the full box stickers from ItsJustPaperCo during one of her ToonieTuesday sales and i’ve been itching to use them! This week I used the Welcome to Paradise collection and having a full row of full box stickers in the center of my planner has been so fun and colourful! I’ve always thought full boxes took up too much room but it’s summer, and I really don’t have all that much going on this week, so it worked out perfectly! So far so good.
**I didn’t think I was doing a post on this spread so I didn’t bother taking any pictures of it before the pen! I’m sorry I can’t show you the whole thing, for privacy reasons, but here’s what I do have..**
