My Christmas Planner Buddy Goodies

So I've had the pleasure of a getting to know my Planner Buddy Shirlene over this past year and I have to say we have shared so much during this year even to being diagnosed with Spinal Stenosis around the same time and being in therapy at the exact same time.  But I do know and strongly believe we were put together for a reason.

So let's jump into the wonderful package I recieved from her

My handmade Christmas Card

Next you have the Planner Charm that I love and it includes an Angel and a Cross with a Twine Knot to remind me that I'm never alone God always has my back.  

Here we have a set of Stamps from TPC Studio these are the Sentiments stamps
Top:: Mini Chalkboard Magnet
Bottom:: Imaginisce Owl Cling Stamp 
Right:: i-Clips set of 8 Owl Magnetic Bookmarks

Masking Tape Washi Set and The Happy Planner Motivational Sticker 6 Sheet Set

Top:: Set of 6 Felt Owl Clips 
Bottom::  Tin Owl canister
Right:: Owl stickers 
You see the theme here right???

Yes, I love owls and what's funny I didn't even know I loved them so much until I started using a paper planner in July 2014 and since then I have stickers, mugs, cups, clips now the only thing I need is a cute tote and T-shirt of course they must be blinged out!!!!

Lastly in  my package was this Adult Coloring Book geared toward Bible art which is important to me.  I look forward to coloring in this book in the weeks to come as I recover from my next round of treatemnts.  This year has been a trying one for me and my Planner Buddy Shirlene which you can check her out on YouTube and Instagram

As always take care be encouraged and be creative!!!!

Planner Upgrade and Christmas Bonaza

So I've been using the Erin Condren Life Planner(EC) since July of 2014 and as the end of this year approached I was trying to figure out exactly what direction I wanted to go in my Planner for 2016. I had mentioned this to my Planner Buddy Shirlene and she asked me about the Happy Planner.  Well I began to look at YouTube videos and the more I watched the more I was intrigued to give it a try.  My only concern is that the paper quality wouldn't be like EC and also would it fit into my Kikki K binder.

Well a few weeks ago my girlfriend came down from Cleveland and we made our way to Michaels and this is what happened

I was able to find The Happy Planner and I got the Good Things are Going to Happen version
and a few goodies.  Now I need to say that the EC Planner is $50 plus and my new Planner with coupon was only $13 which I really have to say Sealed the Deal for me.  

This was my very first time doing a Monthly layout and honestly I might give this a go in 2016.  I used FREE PRINTABLES from  CuteDaisy and random washi, journaling card and other embellishments

This is my week view with a variety of washi, stickers homemade stickers and me loving this Happy Planner so far.  Check me out in a few weeks for a more in depth review of my Happy Planner and how I'm adapting to the layout.

Influenster has Done It Again Unilever Dry Spray Retail Challenge

Hello everyone

I've been a part of Influenster for the past few years and I'm always excited to try new products and give my opinion to you all.  This time I qualified for the Retail Challenge testing out the Unilever Try Dry VoxBox Spray with the Degree spray.  It says it will go on dry and provide the protection that it is known for.

I have had my Degree Dry Spray for the past week and I have to say it is living up to it's claim to not only go on dry but it remains dry/  I have to admit that I use to the old spray deodorants and they were wet and sticky but this product goes on dry and smooth. So it is a great daily product and I will be using this form now on.  

Thanks Influenster, WalMart and Unilever Dry Spray for allowing me the chance to use your product and give my opinion.  
So if you'd like to get FREE products to try and review hop on over to the Influenster link provided above and sign up and reveiw products to see how you can qualify to get these wonderful products. 
Stay tuned for other reivews I will be sharing with you.
