*Disclaimer – I purchased all these stickers myself, and I was not paid to give my honest review of these products.*
Another month, another chance to decorate! I’m still not happy with my planner skills, but I’m practicing and learning. I think it’s mostly because I’m just not that happy with the layout of my ELCP as I initially thought I would be. My handwriting is big and unless you’re ambidextrous it’s really difficult to fill out a spiral-bound book. I also just can’t find a STINKING PEN that doesn’t smudge and works on matte and slick paper! I end up using white-out (ew). I’ll definitely be looking for some better pens this month – its a goal for sure! Hopefully I can do a review post on them. Do you have a favorite? Comment and let me know!!
Despite my setbacks, I DID find a really great sticker shop on etsy! The SweetPaper Co had a super cute May set that I tried and I liked it. The stickers match well to the ELCP month’s colors, and they are matte so they are easy to write on (if you have the right pen). Next month I’m going to try and not have everything so matchy-matchy. It’s not bad, I guess it’s just not my style! Here’s my layout:
It’s that time of year – shopping malls are full of holiday gifters looking for the perfect present for each person on their list and online shops are quickly running out of stock. I’ve never been able to buy exactly what I’ve wanted to give each person on my list and I usually end up doing my best to make or find good sales to make up for it. My Christmas budget is always very very very small. I won’t lie though, I still love to window shop and live vicariously through others while I add to my Christmas Board on Pinterest. I thought this year I would share with you some of the awesome things I found on Etsy (another favorite site of mine). If I had enough cash in my budget you can guarantee that I’d be hitting ALL these shops up! Here are some of my favorite items – enjoy!
THESE cute little hat and mitten sets by KnittingLand! Are they not the most adorable winter accessories? My baby girl would look so presh!
THIS Harry Potter scarf…this one is for you Allison! Its the thought that counts right? This shop has all kinds of cool prints – I want like every single one. “le sigh”
THAT tie rack though! How sleek 🙂 This is by andrewsreclaimed. The husband could really use this, and I know he’d love the clean design.
THESE fun winter signs! I’ve seen the string art before, and these look well crafted. By: Purple Finch Creations
THIS hair bow made by my friend Stephanie! I’m so excited because she said she could make a matching one for my newborn – so we can be twinsies. The best part about this gift is that it’s going to help her raise the funds she needs to go to Honduras for a mission trip!
This awesome heartbeat ring! ANY nurse would love this (ahem… this one included). Very cute. I’d get one for all my coworkers in the ER – shout out to my trauma peeps!
BATMAN! – Yeah, I mean.. who wouldn’t want this? This 3d printer shop makes all kinds of cool cookie cutters! Pretty reasonable prices I think…
UGH aren’t they all spectacular?? On second thought – I might just have to splurge…
