I absolutely needed a new obsession

My newest mild obsession. I say mild because I haven’t (yet) accumulated a large stash like I’ve done for other crafting endeavors. I opened up my old bin of scrapbook stuff to see what I could use.  I found a lot of old photographs that brought back a lot of memories, both good and bad. I labeled the ones that I could and purchased a few photo boxes to contain them.  

Planners. I’ve always loved planners and notebooks.  Many years ago, I had a Franklin type planner that I used for years and looked forward to buying new Flavia inserts every year. 


These two adorable planners came home with me after I couldn’t decide which one I wanted the most. You color a lot of the planner pages yourself.


Bin of old scrapbooking supplies. Those markers are about 20 years old. The couple that I tested were still good. I did go out and buy a few things, but hopefully I haven’t gone hog wild yet.

I purchased a paper trimmer, the one I had was too small to do the size of pages I needed for the planner. I also purchased the hole punch that makes the actual Happy Planner pages.



A little note book of sticky notes I found at Barnes & Noble. They make sticky notes that fit in the calendar squares of the planner!


I got out the colored pencils I’ve been meaning to use on coloring books and my very extensive collection of colored pens and had a blast.


I may have become a little obsessed after discovering washi tape. This neat little contraption is just basically the same thing that I used in my townhouse cupboards to hold the spices. I was going to grab one from the girls’ kitchen but this one was 60% off and inexpensive. Do y’all have any idea how many planner, sticker, washi tape videos there are on YouTube? I’ve gone down a rabbit hole and I’m not sure when I’ll be back.


Stickers from long ago. I look forward to using them along with the new ones I may or may not have purchased.
