Never say never, I guess. Because I always told myself that a bullet journal just wasn’t for me. (I also said I’d never buy MAMBI Happy Planner stickers, but, well, umm…) That takes way too much effort, why would I want to design a new page each week?!
But life happens. Needs change. And maybe this isn’t such a bad idea after all.
Let me start by saying that I love my Recollections A5 Planner. When I got done setting it up, it was exactly what I hoped it would be. I loved the colors, and the dividers turned out perfect (my first try at making them with my Silhouette machine).
But it didn’t work. As much as I loved everything about it, it just wasn’t making my life easier.
Ah. I love pens. I can’t go into a store without looking in the pen aisle. I’ve had my fair share of pens that are disappointing. Especially ones that seem like they would be good and just didn’t deliver. So I wanted to share with you my favorite pens. These are my go-to pens when I pull out my planner. The ones that I know will deliver every time.
After hearing about the new Mini Happy Planner, I waited a long time to get one. Like 3 whole weeks. It was excruciating. 😛
And I’ve spent another two weeks getting it set up for 2017. But it is finally ready. Or at least I thought it was. Then today, just as I was finishing up making my accessories, I get a notification that MAMBI was live on Periscope. And they never disappoint me! Not only are they releasing a lot of accessories for the mini (including the daily pages I have been hoping for), but they are also having an awesome Black Friday sale!
Because I was wondering what I was going to spend my Black Friday funds on. 🙂
Life is totally overwhelming sometimes. We’ve all been there.
And sometimes making real meals is hard. There are (many) days when I just don’t want to do it.
But when I know there is something to eat, and I don’t have to go foraging through the fridge or pantry for dinner, then I’m more likely to actually make it and not just go get fast food.
