“ENJOY” the Chocolate…Gift Bag

Let’s talk about these gift bags. They did not reach out and grab me, as I have not placed an order for one yet. I really wasn’t that sure what they were supposed to be for, as I couldn’t imagine giving someone a gift in a drab brown bag, with a big massive Erin Condren logo on it. I just couldn’t marry that idea and feel like it would produce any good results.

But then Connie took the plunge, and ordered a small gift bag, and posted pictures of it in the Erin Condren Fan Club group on FB. And the pictures caught my eye. The Life Planner fits perfectly into the small gift bag, and the bag itself is sturdy and has space for more than just the planner. I asked her to give me details, and here is what she said…

“They are lined with a type of vinyl…I poured water on the outside and it did not leak through…burlap feel…6 inch drop handles…comes with tissue paper…you chose one of 8 colors (red, purple, bright blue, orange, hot pink, yellow, green, and metallic gold)…gold is metallic, not flat…plenty of room for Washi, pens, Life Planner, and more…large 31 zipper pouch fits nicely…will work as a small purse.”

Hmm…with all of that info, I think I might need to order one of these bags! I saw someone else mention that they would be good for grocery bags. Now, I can marry that idea! I’ll have to look up the large version of this bag and see what the dimensions are.

I will seriously be considering this bag of chocolate goodness. It’s definitely rustic, which fits right in with my country home and country lifestyle. And I do love the message on the bag…ENJOY!

Tell me if you have one of these gift bags. What do you use it for? Would you order one again? What do you like best about it?

Can We Scream HAPPY?

I don’t think any other planner screams HAPPY as loudly as this one does!  Party Pops on white brings a huge smile to my face EVERY time I see it!!  The large letters down the side are so clean and crisp, and the polka dots are so cheerful.  It’s like having a party in your hands every single day!

I looked up “happy” on dictionary.com– joyous, joyful, blithe, cheerful, merry, contented, gay, blissful, satisfied…this Erin Condren planner is all of these things!

How can it be possible that a planner can inspire such a feeling of happiness?  It seems a little odd, actually.  Planners have to-do lists, schedules, appointments, things that generally bring some element of stress into our lives.  But there is something special about the Erin Condren planner.  It is fun and colorful!  We forget that we are plotting work and action for ourselves because it’s so much fun to write in it, to color coordinate our pens, and to decorate a bit with stickers and Washi tape!  We forget that the chores are, well, chores, because we are anticipating that moment of checking off our little box, and feeling the satisfaction of completing a task!

I love this Party Pops cover!  And I am so thankful I found a planner that is so much fun to use and that brings such joy into my life!
