Wow – what a year so far. It’s been a crazy few months for me, and unfortunately this blog ended up on the back burner for a while. I was made redundant after 15 years at the same place. I started a new job in July which has been a challenge and it involves a longer commute each way. We have had to work out as a family how we need to alter our days to cover this. I’m not 100% there, still trying new things, but I feel ready to pick this blog back up.
The main motivator is that I will be attending The UK Planner Addicts group Big Meet 2016. It is the very first one and I was very lucky to get a ticket. The event sold out in under 10 minutes!! I am really excited about meeting new like minded friends. Getting to look at all the different planners. Buying lots of stickers from the Etsy stores present of course. I hear the goody bag is epic too. So it’s a great subject to blog about. I will take stacks of photographs and share everything I can. We also have a guest speaker attending, Kristina Karlsson the founder of Kikki K.
In other news I caved and got an Erin Condren Life Planner. I now have an 18 month neutral vertical with classic coil, which I purchased from a planner group in the UK. I also got a lovely cover for it. I love it. But the sticker obsession is real! I’m still working out my style. I know I’m not a fan of glossy stickers as they are hard to write on, more expensive and thicker. My planner is already chunking up with each decorated week! I tried a few no white space weeks and I just can’t cope with the visual aspect of that. I need a bit of white or I can’t see the wood for the trees. I still use a pocket Filofax for out and about and the ECLP stays at home.
So that is a summary of where I am at. Watch this space for UKPA Big Meet posts.
Be sure to follow me on Instagram for plenty of Big Meet 2016 images, as that is where I intend to put everything on the day as we go along. Let me know if you are going too, I’d love to meet fellow UKPA bloggers.
