A Week in My Erin Condren: Jan. 25 – Jan. 31

It’s been quite a while since I’ve shared the inside of my Erin Condren Life Planner. My planner was a bit boring when I wasn’t in school so there wasn’t much to show off. Now that school has started again and my planner is busy again, that means more looks inside of my Erin Condren.

A Week in My Erin Condren: Dec. 14 – Dec. 20

EC Dec 14 - Dec 20

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.

Erin Condren Life Planner Horizontal Spread

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!

Have a Parade Sticker Haul

November 26, 2015

Have a Parade Haul

I haven’t bought new stickers for my planner in a while, so I decided to treat myself to a couple of stickers from Have a Parade.

Have a Parade is an Etsy store that specializes in stickers for the Erin Condren. Her stickers are affordable and come in such vibrant colors. All stickers are printed on glossy, permanent paper. I received a small sampler as well that included some decorative and functional fall stickers.

With Christmas coming up, I wanted to get some countdown stickers ($3.50.) What made these stickers stand out to me was that each sticker has a different icon in it. Most of the countdowns I found on Etsy had the same icon for the entire countdown, and that didn’t seem like much fun to me. While the icons do repeat, it’s not in the same week and that’s fine with me. The stickers themselves seem smaller than what I thought they would be. I thought they would fit across the length of a Erin Condren box, but they are much smaller. However, this is fine with me because it won’t take up that much room.

I also bought some functional stickers. These small banners ($3) will be perfect for writing the time of an important appointment or for marking off a special occasion.

Shipping was relatively fast. I got these in about a week from when they shipped, which was two days after I placed the order. And considering they came from California to New York, I’m fine with that!

I’m excited to use new stickers in my planner and get ready for Christmas. It’s my favorite time of the year! Are you doing anything interesting in your planner to celebrate the holidays? Let me know down below!
