Today I’m sharing with you my fourth order from the Etsy Shop Abundance of Erica. This shop is relatively new and has a small selection, but the shop owner’s willingness to do to custom orders is what makes me come back. Check out the haul below!
This week marked the first week of my winter break! It’s been really nice to sit back and relax for a little bit. While doing nothing for a week was really nice, I’m excited to get to work on my blog and work some holiday hours at my summer job. I get a little restless when I’m not doing anything. Rest is nice every once is a while, but I get bored!
I’m so used to planning for school that planning a week at home was really strange. What is there to plan when there’s not much to do? It was a big challenge to figure out how to fill each day with something to plan and do. I got a lot of small things done that I had been putting off for a while like buying printer ink. I’m not a fan of how empty this layout looks. I’m going to experiment with more decorative planning while I’m home, but I miss filling each day with stickers and pen.
I used the Sweet Kawaii Design stickers I hauled last week. They are too adorable! I love the Itty Bitty Blog stickers. The “Time to Plan” sticker got me excited to plan the following week. The smiling faces make my day a little brighter.
The weekend banner, checklists and dividers are from the monthly kits from Ladybugzdesignz. The cardboard boxes and smaller, skinny flags are from abundanceoferica. The Christmas countdown stickers are from Have a Parade. The appointment label is from Planner Kate and the pink spray bottle, heart and asterisk are from a Happy Planner sticker book.
Check out last week in my Erin Condren Life Planner! More pictures are down below.
There are those weeks that didn’t necessarily feel busy, but you look back and realize that you accomplished a lot. This was one of those weeks. Looking back at my planner, there wasn’t a lot scheduled, but I got a ton of things done that I am really proud of.
I gave a presentation, I wrote three blog posts, I finished two papers, it was my mom’s birthday and I celebrated my anniversary with my boyfriend. It was a lot, but it didn’t feel that way. Probably because I planned it out so well. 😉
What I love most about this spread is that I got to try out some new stickers. I started a Christmas countdown with the Have a Parade stickers I hauled a while back. They are small and don’t take up much room. They also add some Christmas cheer to my functional spreads without being too distracting. I also used a couple of Planner Kate stickers that I got in a flash sale a few weeks back. They are so easy to write on and peel off of the page when I placed them a little crooked. That’s why I love removable stickers!

This past week marked the beginning of my short but relaxing Thanksgiving break, and boy did I need it. Since I only had to plan out two days for school purposes, I was allowed to have a little more fun with how I did my layout.
I usually don’t use checklists in my weekly spreads except in the Notes section, so using them throughout spread felt a little foreign to me. However, since those days I was doing errands and buying Christmas gifts, the checklists made sense.
Since I use my planner functionally, I don’t add decorative stickers to my weekly spread and instead use them in the monthly view to add a bit of fun. I really love the way the turkey and fall stickers look though. It adds a bit of color to my usually monotone spreads. Sometimes I wish I could be a decorative planner, but I need all the space to plan out my days!
I love the way that Cindy Guentert (Llamas Love Lettering) does lettering in her planner, so I thought I would try that out too. I love the way it came out! Monday was a really lazy and relaxing day for me since that weekend was crazy with work and school events. I want to buy markers to color it in. I think that would look really nice!
The weekend banner, checklists, dividers and icons are from the monthly kits from Ladybugzdesignz. The smaller teardrops, TV stickers and smaller flags are from abundanceoferica. The turkeys and decorative stickers are from a Darice sticker book which are easily found for $1 at Michaels.
What do you do to your planner to spruce it up and have a bit of fun?
