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!

Marvelous Mistake

When this clipboard arrived, it was hard to be upset that something about it wasn’t quite right!

The pattern is Fleur Feliz, the colors, Dark Red and Black.

With those colors, the result would only be striking and super classy looking! But instead of having a white area, overlaying the pattern in a milky square, providing space for writing on the clipboard with a dry erase marker, something happened in the production, and the result was this amazing white outlining around the pattern.  It looks like a mist of silver settled on the clipboard, or that the curves and turns of the Fleur Feliz were draped delicately with lace.

“It is gorgeous”… “Wow, that looks amazing”… “Oh, I like it like that better!”  Everybody was amazed when they saw the photo.  Oh, if only all of the mistakes were this wonderful!!

I personally think it looks “absolutely stunning”!!  And if it were mine, I wouldn’t mind at all, if I had to leave my dry erase markers at home!!

Paisley on Chocolate

Paisley is definitely one of my top 3 favorite Erin Condren cover designs.  And actually, I have not seen a Paisley cover yet that I didn’t like!  This one especially caught my eye because I have always loved Chocolate and Pink together!

I spoke with Lindsay Noche so I could let you all know exactly what colors she chose to make this stunning cover!

This is the multi Paisley design, on a Chocolate background.  Her name, “Lindsay Noche” is printed in Light Pink, and the verse is printed in Tan.  I am still working on learning all of the names for the fonts that EC uses in their designs.  I don’t know the specific name for this font just yet!

This color combination is so delicious I could see myself using it sometime in the future!  Thank you Lindsay for sharing your planner with us! ~Kristy

There are currently no tabs on the address book, but each letter is designated with a bit of color on the pages.  You can see the sections when you look at the book from the side.

The address book has a section, similar to the Life Planner, for Special Dates.  Each month boasts a full-page to note birthdays, anniversaries, or any other date you want to remember!

The actual address pages are nicely laid out with slight color variations so you can see where one address starts and ends.

There is also a clear pouch for address labels, stamps, or other small items needed when writing a letter!

I hope you enjoyed taking a look inside the address book!  Now take a minute and write someone a letter!  You will send some sunshine into their mailbox!! ~Kristy
