Last summer I found an instagram account that had the most beautiful way of planning. She was using an Erin Condren Life Planner in the vertical layout and I absolutely loved the creativity and how easy it was to figure out the different tasks and appointments. How had I never seen this before? I clicked through a few hashtags and found that this had been a thing for years! I got lost in this new planning community where everyone helped each other and gave you tips and tricks, everyone shared their beautiful spreads of the week and there was so much colour!
And so I picked up a planner myself and dived straight in. There was no stopping me.
Half a year later I decided to set up my own shop. It was only then that I really got in to full decorative planning. Beforehand I was just using washi and a few stickers here and there, but having my own shop, being able to produce my own stickers and constantly seeing other shops stickers, I found myself decorating more and more. I now decorate using a 'no white space' spread which is a really fun way to organise the week. Each page in my Erin Condren looks colourful and fun with a different theme each week.
I have thought about Bullet Journalling, but I'm still unsure if it's for me. I like using loads of stickers too much and feel that a Bullet Journal is just one big 'to-do' list? I don't know, I guess I should do more research into it. I feel like there's a huge hype around it at the moment so I might wait until that's quietened down a bit otherwise I'll get swept up and buy all of the unnecessary bits and bobs for it.
