Planners have evolved from being a simple planning tool to a hybrid planning scrapbook. Sure, there are still people out there who have never decorated their planners. But when I entered the planning world two years ago, I met groups of people who dedicate their time and money in making their planners look fancy.

My First Etsy Purchase: Hogwarts Acceptance Letter

If you’re a Potterhead like me, and you turned 11 without getting your Hogwarts acceptance letter, I feel for you. I can remember vividly when I turned 11 and got nothing.

It was extremely fun, so much fun that the excitement woke me up! Read more
