So apparently Halloween was mail day for me! I checked my mailbox that morning after class and found a few fun things, and then later I got a notification that a package had been delivered, so why not check again? I found my package and another letter! It hadn't been such a great weekend, so finding all of the fun things waiting for me on Monday perked me right up!
I got three cards, one from my mom, my mom's coworker, and my grandmother! I thought it was fun that all three had puppies.
My mother also sent me a huge box of Halloween goodies! Candy, tattoos, donuts, fake bugs, all kinds of fun stuff!
But now on to the true meat of this post, I recently placed two orders with TheECPlannerKitLady on Etsy! I know two is a bit excessive, but first she had a sale, and then she offered a discounted grab bag, both just for members of her Facebook group! Planner stickers can be very expensive, so I jump at opportunities to get things for a better price! You also may remember early this year I did a large sticker haul, and I'd finally began to run a bit low on those, so I figured it was time!
These were the things I chose specifically for myself on the sale day, and everything totaled out to about $7.
This is a bit messy, because I cut up the cards to organize the washi tape before I took the picture, but you still get the idea! She was offering 30 washi tape samples, wrapped around playing cards, for only around $5! I like some more than others, but it is a fun thing to have!
I also used these before I thought to take a picture... but they are countdown to Christmas stickers! It came as a set of 24 countdown days, as well as a few activity stickers such as "wrap presents" or "bake Christmas cookies"! they were only around $1 or $2. Such a fun thing, I love them!
These were the items that came in the grab bag I ordered for $15; it is a random mix of punches, kits, washi tape, and stickers!
This was one of her small Christmas kits with washi and punches. The punches have a piece of tape on the back to adhere them to the pages. I usually use them for special events that I want to stand out in my planner.
Similarly to the Christmas kit above, this is her fall kit with punches and washi! I loved the leaf shapes and designs, and I have already dipped into both of these!
These were the stickers which came with both kits respectively. They are pre-made, not by the shop owner, and more for decorative than functional use.
This is another fall kit she sent me, but these were all stickers! I love stickers... This kit came with a countdown to Thanksgiving sheet, decorative banners, and "To do" list boxes.
I thought it was so much fun that I ended up with both the Christmas and Thanksgiving countdown! They are super cute, I couldn't wait to get them in my planner.
Next, I received TWENTY bobbins with washi tape samples! Twenty! There were only a couple of repeats from the washi tape in my first order, but I do kind of wish I hadn't ordered that and just waited for these! Oh well, I need not complain, I am now well stocked on washi tape!
These two are not a kit that go together, just two more random things in the grab bag! The card with the nautical themed washi tape actually came in my first order as well, so I ave plenty of that style!
I also received this bag of tiny tiny flower punches... I'm not totally sure what to do with them yet since they are too small to write on, but they are pretty!
The last things in my grab bag was a pretty sparkly gold pen, and a circle clip. I was a bit disappointed that the ink in the pen was black instead of gold, but it writes smoothly, so I know it will quickly become one of my favorites anyway!
Honestly, I'm not totally sure what to do with the circle clip, or how it relates to planner accessories... So I'm open to suggestions!
And here is her card! TheECPlannerKitLady has a wonderful shop that I've ordered from for years, she introduced me into the world of planner stickers. I highly suggest you check her out, and if you use the code "Just4U" you can get 15% off of your order! I used it with both of these, and ended up paying just under $20 for it all! Personally, I think that is pretty great.
By the way, I went to get my mail a couple of days later and found this fun box that I can't wait to share with you all! Apparently it is just mail week!
