Using the Happy Planner

How much more of a planner nerd can I get, when I'm this excited about using a new planner!

The Happy Planner

There's a new planner in town and it's the Happy Planner from Me & My Big Ideas. A scrapbooking company that's been around for awhile. This planner is discbound, so the pages can be moved around or taken out and replaced. You can also add whatever other pages or snippets of paper to this. Very versatile and highly recommended to all planner addicts!

My style of planning at the moment is very scrapbookish. I have so many decorations, stickers and washi tapes that I've purchased and been given that I can't help but try and put as much as I can on the pages! I'm liking the hot pink and black theme that I put together for this week. A bit cluttered but I'm still happy with the result!

More Stuff On My Desk

A couple of months ago I posted a photo of what my desk area looked like. Here's an update... more stuff, more clutter! My washi tapes collection is growing, so is my sticky notes... and pens! I like it this way - I feel happy and inspired to be surrounded with all my lovely things.

Happy Planner Flip Through Video

I decided to create a video from still shots of the new 365 Create "Happy" Planner I bought last week - some people from the Planner Addicts Australia group were asking to see what the inside of it looks like so I ended up taking heaps of photos! I don't have a web cam, yet, so a slide show is probably the next best thing to a flip through video I could manage. So, here's my first attempt at a "planner" video! It seems quite a bit long after watching it again. Oh well, the background song is quite nice! ◠‿◠

Brisbane Planner Addicts Meet Up

I recently attended the latest Brisbane Planner Addicts Meet Up and had a pretty good time! Around 15 planner chicks turned up to shop around Brisbane CBD for stationery and planner items, then have dinner at Jojo's Restaurant to gush over each other's planners! There were goodie bags and raffle prizes galore and one of the organisers included a special pen for each of us who attended the event, just to make it even more memorable!

Stationary from Brisbane Planner Meet Up

It was nice to meet the other girls from Planner Addicts Australia and was awesome to see some of the planners I've only seen in photos in person - like the Kate Spades zip up planner, Heidi Swapp black & white planner (love it, so dainty!), Webster's Pages, Inkwell, all sorts of Filofaxes, Midori traveler style planners and so much more!

Thanks to a couple of fellow planner addicts who organised it and put so much effort to make it a success!

Scrapbook Papercraft Expo Brisbane

Thanks to one of my Instagram friends, I found out about the Scrapbook & Papercraft Expo held in South Brisbane Convention Centre. It's been going on for years but only heard about it now! I ended up going on Saturday, (6th of June) and my parents decided to come along to scrummage through the bits and pieces of scrapbook supplies and stationery in there. I initially asked mum if she wanted to go, since she's also into arts & crafts and it turned out that my dad also wanted to check it out... just to see something a bit different!

Got to meet Andrea, shop owner of Chiyogami Designs - where I get my washi tapes from! Also, picked up some Scrapbook items, mostly journal cards. It's mostly scrapbook and arts & crafts supplies in there - not a whole lot for "planning".
