Happiness Planner now and then

Whilst discussing my recently-completed Inspired Stories Daily Planner, I have alluded to a previous occasion when I had a daily planner which never really gelled with me. This was the 100-Day bound planner from The Happiness Planner, which I ordered back in August 2017. At that point, I felt that daily planning might help me… Continue reading Happiness Planner now and then

Completing the Inspired Stories Planner

A quote chosen by me to start off each week - the original quote printed in the planner covered up Back in August of this year when I wrote my preliminary thoughts on the Inspired Stories Daily Planner, my sister was of the opinion that I would not keep using it.

A new member of Clan Bluepen

I'd like a spaceship in this design. Okay, so they invented this thing called Black Friday. Did you get the memo? Under normal circumstances I wouldn't be drawn in, but apparently 2020 is not a normal year. You got that memo, right?

When I… Continue reading Suddenly November

Proof of the pudding

Ah, just as I thought - eliminating the gapping of the button-band has turned this garment into something I want to wear, at least with skirts and probably with reasonably roomy trousers. It does not look flattering with my jeans, but then that's what my Helsinki jumper is for! So, at last, a photo of… Continue reading Proof of the pudding

They call it a haul

I have indulged myself with a bit of a "planner decor" haul and I thought I'd show you the things that caught my fancy. I'm a relatively good girl and don't have lots of stickers and washi tape. I used up all my existing stickers on two projects over the summer: Covering up the unwanted… Continue reading They call it a haul

Revisiting my journal

Aquarius journal front It was way back in January when I bought this journal and did my initial preview of it, in the "before time" as we might choose to think of it from the viewpoint of our pandemic present-day. Anyway, I've been using it for several weeks now and I think it's time to… Continue reading Revisiting my journal
