Hello! I thought it would be fun to walk down memory lane and share how my craft space has evolved over the past decade.
My crafty storage space actually began in a vintage trunk. I outgrew that very quickly. So then, I moved down to the basement, in around 2006. There was a table and desk down there, and I made my crafty home down there for about a year or two.
I then had the brainy idea to turn our spare bedroom into a crafty paradise in 2008. I actually called it Scrap Land for several years. I used the same desk that was in the basement (and was my grandparents’). I remember I had a lot of fun shopping for new storage units. I have never stopped loving that. 🙂My mom painted the desk white, and I still love it to this day. The trunk on the left of this photo is the one I started out with for my scrapbooking storage!I loved having these paper racks!Then, in 2010, we got new carpet all throughout the house. My hardwood floor wasn’t actually too bad looking. Here’s a look after the very bright carpet was laid and my room was put back together.I have switched up my desk and other things in my room over the years. It keeps the room fresh.Last fall, we repainted most of the house and I had dreamed about having a brick wall in my space. I found the perfect wallpaper!And, after the painting and papering were complete, my desk moved again- surprise!I love my two big bookcases, and I have tried to pare down my collection of stuff so they look nice, and not just jam-packed, lol.I added the small cabinet earlier this summer. It’s perfect for my small planners and photo albums.One last look…this is how my room looks currently!
I love, love, love my space and I enjoy reworking it (often) to fit my current crafty obsessions.
I hope you enjoyed this tour of my crafty space!

Hello!! You read the title right… I’ve been scrapbooking again! I tried to change up my format last year (to a TN), but my creative heart lies in a 12×12 format. I used to scrap sooo much before I became a full-time #plannergirl… and I’ve been feeling the itch to get back to some good old-fashioned scrapping! So, enjoy my fresh new layouts!
I took tons of photos for spring and Easter this year, so I scrapped a few of my favorite photos of my birdies. Most of the supplies are from my stash of Dear Lizzy and Paige Evans papers.
Any other scrapbookers out there?
Thanks for stopping by!
Hello! Since we’ve successfully completed the first quarter of the year already(!), I thought it was time to show you how my daily planning system is working.
I’ve tweaked my Classic Happy Planner setup a lot, and it’s working for me! I always flirt with the idea of using a different system (TN, rings,etc.), but I ALWAYS come back to the Happy Planner.
Here’s a look at my current setup…
I recently traded out the pink metal discs for my trusty rose gold ones. Haven’t found the metal rose gold ones yet at Michaels…When you open up my planner, the first thing you notice area Glam Girl envelope and some sticky notes.The first section is for important notes that I reference frequently. This is my cover page for that section- decked out in Planner Society paper and a puffy unicorn sticker from Michaels.Then we move directly into my monthly and weekly planning.I keep 2-3 months worth of weeklies in my planner, and store the other months in another planner. I am using the Glam Girl lined weekly inserts.The next section is my faith planner.
The Happy Planner stencil comes in handy for writing daily scriptures.The next section is the Trendsetter Happy Planner. I began the year with it, and then gave it up, and it’s back again! I am attempting to use it for blog, social media, and design project planner.
Then, I have a small memory keeping section.Finally, I keep my pretty Happy Planner blank note paper in the back, so it’s handy for when an idea strikes!I hope you enjoyed this look inside my Happy Planner! I’ll keep you updated on how it’s working for me!
Hello! I have been wanting to do a walk-through of my scrap/planning/craft/office space for about a year now. And, I still want to do one, but then I always want to change something around in my room, so I don’t, and well, here we are. But, I did take a few photos of specific nooks in my room, so I though I would share them today!
I love my desk. It actually belonged to my grandparents. I remember sitting at it when I was a little girl. It seemed a lot bigger back then, but sometimes that’s how it is, isn’t it? It used to be a brown wood color, but my mom painted it a glossy white for me. 🙂My fancy new chair (from Marshall’s). I bought the matching ottoman first, last year from Home Goods. I have been searching for a new chair, and when I found the one above & saw how it matched my ottoman perfectly, well, I was sold!The view from here. Printer and planner bookcase (from Hobby Lobby).I love anything shabby chic!Quick glance at my large white bookcases…A little vignette on my bookcase that I love!My happy place…I still want to do a more in depth look into my space, but I hope you enjoyed a quick look today!
Thanks for stopping by!
Hello! Happy Superbowl Sunday! Wouldn’t it be fun to have a crafty/planner Superbowl? Hmmm…
I wanted to share a flip-through of my January spreads with you all today. I started 2017 confident in my planner routine, then halfway through the month, I fell in love with the rose gold Happy Planner at Michael’s, and things fell apart from there.
This is the tale of 2 Happy Planners for January….
Week of Jan. 2-8 (I missed using rose gold during the holidays):
Week of Jan. 9-15 (wintery theme):
Week of Jan. 16-22, in my new HP. I looove this Marie Antoinette theme!:
Week of Jan. 23-29 (all purple!):
My two Happy Planners:
If you couldn’t tell, I don’t have a lot of “planning” or even writing in this planner, because it’s not my main planner anymore. I want to use this one as more of a ‘creative week’ notebook. My planner system is evolving every day, every week, it seems. I can’t wait to see how February turns out! Stay tuned…
