Planners Destash

Like most planner addicts in the Instagram & Facebook Community, I get overboard buying all the planners to test them out! Much as I would love to have a bookcase full of pretty planners, like some I've seen on Instagram, I tend not to hoard and usually get rid of majority of my things which I know will end up not being used. There are some planners, of course, which are just too precious to part with... for now!

Planner Addict

Before buying new planners for the New Year, I went ahead and sold most of these at the Planner Addicts Australia Group on Facebook. The pretty Carpe Diem A4 planners - watercolor dots and floral next to it have been sold. The same for the Recollections stripes and Heidi Swapp pink floral next to it.

I also destashed a whole bunch of stickers and little tidbits from the Planner Society kits I wasn't going to use any time soon. In summary, out with the old, in with the new! Bring on 2018!

The Planner Society Subscription Kit

These are the last of the Planner Society kit I've received. Although I've been very happy with all the lovely things that came in the kit, I had to call it quits as I have way more than enough crafty things to last me awhile!

The Planner Society Kit

The floral planner is from Forever New - I just like to use it as a prop as display with all these adorable planner supplies!

Out of the many items that came in the kits, I loved the pens and stickers the most! But honestly, everything was great and top notch! The paper clips, page flags and sticky notes, charms, quote cards, shakers, scrapbook paper and washi tapes. All have been excellent!

I've enjoyed my time subscribing to the Planner Society - receiving it once a month was like getting a gift every time! For now, I will just lust over the photos @theplannersociety Instagram gallery.

That Famous Target USA Cup Pen Holder

This just in: I now have two of these cute Target USA cup or planter or what I use it as... a pen holder. Thanks to one of my planner buddies over there in America - she was kind enough to get another one for me.

Target USA Pen Holder

Apart from the pen holder, I received more washi tapes, sticker books and pens - from Hobby Lobby this time. Loving these floral and stripes designs! They all go well with my planners.

Hobby Lobby Petals and Bloom

Here's a close up of some of the washi tapes and pens. The floral stripes collection is called Petals & Bloom. The pens are ultra fine gel pens and they're quite nice to use! Overall, I'm just ecstatic to have received all this! #stationeryaddict  >-<

2017 Music Playlist

Well, I finally created a Playlist of my favorite 2017 songs so far. This will be update as the year progresses.

I've mostly been listening to old stuff (again) like Sade, Simply Red, Def Leppard and 80's Rock, because not a great deal of new songs really appeal to me. Songs in this playlist are good, but would not consider any of them to be "classics" in future.

Artists in the Playlist include Dua Lipa, Haim, Imagine Dragons, The Weeknd, Bruno Mars and others.

Planner Boss Collective Sale 2017

Once again, my little sticker shop, Popmix, is taking part in the Planner Boss Collective Sale - 100 shops participating and will use the same discount code. It's become a bit of an event now in the Instagram Planner Community. The Sale is on this weekend and the discount for the Spring 2017 Planner Boss Collective Sale is SPRINGPBC17

Planner Boss Collective Sale

I've created a lot of new designs for my stickers and have upgraded my sticker paper to premium, smooth, bright white. It makes the print look so vibrant and professional!

Popmix Stickers

Last year, I was on Etsy when I was included in the Sale. This year, I have my own stand alone shop. So, we'll see how it goes!

Update: Sale was okay. A lot lower than last year's!

Recollections Zip Planner

I've been wanting to get my hands on this zipped planner ever since it was made available! I finally got hold of it, thanks to my awesome planner buddy from the States. The design and inserts are all so gorgeous! Even if I don't end up using this, it was too "fabulous" to pass up.

Recollections Fabulous Zipped Planner

It would've been better if the front cover was undated, so I could use it any year, but alas, this is only good for 2017. If anything, it will be a memento from the year I went crazy buying all this planner & stationery things! ^‿^

This is what the inside looks like. I've added some accessories to pretty it up even more. Some cute sticky notes and fancy paper clips.

Washi Collection

Have built up my washi collection... and still using the stackable Reject Shop containers I discovered awhile back. Very durable, have not broken any and it stacks well - leans on the wall quite well and doesn't topple over.

Washi Collection

Most notable washi tapes came from Michael's stores in the U.S.A. Sent to me by a planner friend.

Michael's Washi Tapes

Recollections bundle washi tapes are all the range. So many gorgeous designs!

Recollections Washi Tapes

I usually use these tapes as top and bottom decoration on notebook pages, as well as planners. Also, to help seal envelopes when I send mail. Makes them look pretty!

Planner Girl Boss

I de-stashed a whole heap of planners before the New Year - just to declutter and start fresh! I now only have one A5 binder planner... which is my Kikki K "Why Not". This is what I'll be using for a daily planner - but, I'll see how it goes with this!

Using a Bloomsical clip art set, I designed and printed out my own intro "dashboard" page to pretty up the planner. Plus, a whole lot of stationery and accessories from the Planner Society, including the classy looking pen. This is probably my best set up, yet!
