It's Mother's Day on Sunday the 9th of May and it's that time again where I know I'd want to splurge and buy lots of stuff! Mac make up, new handbag and shoes and lots of stationery! It's all about pampering and spoiling myself this weekend, just like what I did last year. I'm sure there are others who want to do the same... therefore, a sale is a must!
My new release stickers in the shop just came in time for this sale. I love my Quotes, so there's a few there, plus my recent release of pen addict and washi addict sticker sheets!
It's 15% off everything in the shop for $5 minimum purchase. Ends after this Mother's Day weekend. Shop at popmixdesigns.etsy.com.
If I didn't have enough Erin Condren planners, I would probably get another one right about now, just because they are currently 50% off! If you've been wanting to try one out, this is the time to buy it!
During my year and a few months of being in this crazy planner community I've discovered and am now a part of, I have purchased and tried quite a few weekly planners that are all so nice, pretty and functional... but for some reason, I just end up going back to my gold class Erin Condren vertical planner!
I'm happy to say that after experimenting with various decorating styles, I've found the one I'm quite happy with. Now, this may look quite girly, especially that it's from someone who's already 40 something. (Ha!) But, honestly, this is what I'm loving at the moment - kawaii, pastel and brights mixed together and script watercolour writing (thank you sticker machine). Also, these flower boxes which was inspired by some stickers that came in a planner kit I subscribe to every month (The Planner Society Kit).
Now, more about the Erin Condren sale! There is also a BUY ONE GET ONE FREE deal with their Planner Accessories! Washi tapes, sticker books, planner pockets, dashboards and all sorts of stationery to accompany the Erin Condren planners. So if you're keen, shop 'til you drop at the Erin Condren web store while the sale is on! Go on, get!
My Instagram account @catherina.amor has been buzzing with activity the past month or so... more than this blog, anyway! :p
I've had 3 Giveaways in a row for my Instagram followers, which is what I've been wanting to do for awhile. Being the stationery shopaholic that I am, I've accumulated quite a bit of stuff, so I could keep going... but, I will reserve them for future Giveaways!
Apart from giving away all these nice things, I've been having fun doing photo challenges. Completed the Happy Planner Instagram challenge in February and now that it's April, I decided to do another one!
This time from Made By Elissa. The prompts look great and having been a regular Instagrammer for over a year now, it's sometimes easier to have suggestions on what photos to post!
So far so good! Still loving taking photos of my stationery and planners and having a list like this makes it even more enjoyable!
March Madness sale happening at Popmix Designs. 15% discount for purchases of $10 or more. Valid until end of March, 2016!
The shop has some new stickers, including cute doodle meal planner stickers, pick ups, more novelty numbers and heaps more to come!!
Hi everyone who reads my blog! Sometimes I think that nobody really goes here, since I hardly see comments after my posts... but... every now and then, I get a comment (thank you!!) or someone mentions in my Instagram that they read my blog.
Anyway, the other day, I received a comment here asking if I was in Bloglovin'. I tried to get listed there awhile ago, but I kept getting errors, so I eventually forgot about it. After being reminded, though, I contacted their support regarding this issue and they kindly added my blog in their directory! So I'm now there, people! Click here to follow me in Bloglovin'... if you're into that kind of thing. I've also got their widget on my sidebar, which links to my page over there.
Bloglovin' is a Blog directory for bloggers, for those who don't know about it. It's like a pinterest of blogs, I suppose. Will keep anyone busy for ages! So now at least, that's another tick off my unwritten list of things to do.
Thanks for reading!! And have a good rest of your day!!
I'm not one to toot my own horn, but... I'm loving the stickers I've been coming up with for my shop, popmixdesigns.etsy.com! I think the arrangement on the actual sticker sheets look pretty good - I wanted each sheet to look great as a whole and not just have bits of blobs on paper.
I use these word stickers a lot and so far, they are the most popular in the shop!
I now have mini stickers, too. All these things have been thought of awhile ago, but I'm a bit slow in the execution of things. There are still a lot of designs on the works and I suppose, it may be a never ending process!! I seem to have ideas popping up in my head all the time!
Very happy with how my planner icon stickers turned out! They are quite cute and definitely something I'm excited to use on my planners! :)
So it seems that I buy a lot of stationery and planner supplies every month! There was a time when most of my spending money went on clothes, shoes and makeup... but these days, it's all about my crafty planner things! Stickers, washi tapes, pens and pretty accessories! #stationeryaddict! :D
First up... these adorable Lemon Paper Co. stickers! The owner, Jessica, was so generous and kind sending me these kawaii planner stickers (which I now use all the time)!! I would have to say they are now some of my favourite, must have stickers and they've become part of my "staple" stickers to use on my planners. Shop at lemonpaperco.etsy.com and get some of these super cute stickers!!
It took awhile to get to me, but this Valentine's Day Planner Kit from The Planner Society is so worth it! Love the papers, pretty sticky notes and washi and of course, the stickers!! Their monthly planner kit is the only one I'm subscribed to at the moment and it never disappoints. This particular kit is a holiday special and it's too awesome for words! :D
One of the shops I regularly go to is Kikki K - there's a couple in the main CBD of Brisbane and it's just walking distance from where I live! How can I not go there a lot, right?
I finally got their cute watermelon planner in medium - small enough to fit in my hand bag, which I carry with me everywhere. The pens on the photo are from Kmart - $3 for a pack of 6... bargain! So many lovely stationery these days that my spare change usually get spent on these. What can I say? It's my weakness!!
It's the beginning of February and I thought I'd join the Happy Planner Instagram Challenge - first on the list is a planner selfie. Since this month is all about hearts and flowers and love, what better way than to give a bit of self love and take a photo of myself, with one of my fav planners!
I'm in my early 40's now and taking selfies isn't really something I do these days. So this is a rare occasion. I wanted this pic to look like I'm an 80's chick - I should've matched the heart and wore hot pink lipstick. But anyway, thank goodness for airbrush because I didn't want to cover my face with foundation just for a selfie. Haha. These days, I really only wear lipstick and maybe a bit of eye makeup every now and then. At least I've now got a photo of what I look like at the start of 2016!
Planner Society Girl
Yesterday, I finally got the January Planner Society kit. And it's as awesome as the rest of the ones I've received so far! My subscription for this kit started on October 2015. I feel like I'm officially a Planner Society girl having received this gorgeous crystal pen that came with the kit! How beautiful everything is that's included in this planner kit! So happy that I took the plunge and subscribed, even though it cost an arm and a leg... well, okay, not that much! But it's still a bit expenso due to the Aussie dollar value being a bit low compared to the US dollar.
I am also expecting the Valentine's Planner Kit & Sticker pack I purchased, which was a one off thing. Soon, I hope!!
Australia Day yesterday, and I thought I'd start a 15% off sale, ending this Thursday 28th January. Very happy with the result, so far! My shop is still infant, but so far, so good.
This is my little promo ad for it, anyway. Posted in several Planner Facebook groups and also, in my Etsy Shop Instagram account - instagram.com/popmixdesigns!
I've still got some old art drawings and doodles that I want to turn into stickers, postcards and planner dashboards. I've been slow about it, but it's my goal to make it happen this week. Let's do this!
